Need sample video - GoPro 7 with GPS

Hello all,

 

I've built a tool that will extract the location data from a GoPro 5 and turn it into a shapefile. The tool was made for sign inventory, but I suppose it could be useful to others (www.signprox.net).

 

Anyway, I am wondering if my tool would work for GoPro 7 videos too. Has anything changed in the way the GPS is stored? The easiest way I can think to test is using some sample video. Could someone share a short video with GPS turned on taken from a GoPro 7? I see a lot of sample videos on YouTube but worry that if I extract those videos, I won't get the GPS data. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Need sample video - GoPro 7 with GPS

I did find some sample video and my code no longer works. Does anyone know what has changed between the telemetry storage from GP5 to GP7?
