No GPS Data on Gopro MAX 360 mp4's (GoPro MAX Exporter Windows)

[ New ]

I have the latest MAX firmware and GoPro MAX Exporter Windows.

 

My .360 files have GPS information, but when proceeing to h.264 (or any codec) using the MAX Exporter, this telemetry is not included in the output file (in this case .mp4).

 

Can someone describe how they process MP4 files using the Exporter to retain GPS in 360 vids?

Thanks @mariustanya 

 

It doesn't answer my question though. Let me rephraise...

 

Does GPS telemetry from .360 files get included when GoPro MAX Exporter converts into h264 .mp4?

In the mp4 files is no gps data :( 

It's a shame it is not included. 

 

I found out that the gps data is in the .360 file. 

I've managed to get the gps data from the .360 file. and put it in a gpx file. 

Now I'm looking for a way to embed the gps data to the mp4 file. 

I am not there yet, but I will let you know if I find a way. 

Maybe the GoPro people can fix it, I think they should!

The Windows app does not retain the GPS data when exporting, the macOS one does. I am not sure if the Beta version of the Windows app does retain it, I think it does but can't rememeber exactly. If you can't get your hands on the beta version, here are some alternative tools that will let you visualize or create overlays with the data https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Telemetry-GPS-overlays/GoPro-Telemetry-Resources-software/gpm-p...

I see. In that case, does anyone have a link to the beta version of the MAX Exporter app for Windows?

There is not Beta Version of the Max Exporter app, the Beta Windows App being referred to was the Beta Windows Player.

Thanks for the clarification.

 

Even in the Player app for Windows, it is not possible to retain the telemetry.

 

No matter what variation of options I select, the retain telemetry box stays greyed out :(
