Tool for video GPS metadata
Posted: 27-Oct-2018 01:27
There is currently no GPS metadata support for videos in jAlbum, The attached tool will populate jAlbum's gpsLocation, gpsLatitude and gpsLongitude variables with the video's GPS data (e.g. 59.328945,18.065011).

Any skin that supports those variables for video will use them and the GPS data will be presented on the album’s page. For skins that don’t support video GPS it creates a ‘Google Maps URL link’ and puts it on the clipboard, ready for pasting in the comments field, fo example. The tool uses jAlbum’s embedded ffmpeg to get the GPS metadata in a video.

To use the tool:
In jAlbum's explore mode select the video you want to get the GPS data from. Run the tool (Menu>Tools>External tools>Vidéo GPS metadata).

See instructions for more details

Renamed tool to Video GPS metadata
Updated for condition of decimal degrees equaling zero.

Changed forum title as the tool now gets video embedded GPS and sets (user variables) GPS for videos without embedded data.

Changed 'location' code to include location.ISO6709, see post by sburke who made the change to support iPhone SE

There is a custom version here that will also extract non-xmp embedded title and comments.
