Ahhhh....well, in the context of this thread I did specify I was using the Phantom 4 Pro (See my reply to Bernie C.). I've never owned a Phantom 4 that wasn't the Pro, so that's interesting information.Hi Harleydude, DJI have used several different methods for capturing the GPS data. On the P4 I own it does produce the extra data file.
Sort of. I think what you mean to say is that it's easy to strip the on-screen data from the video by simply renaming or removing the .srt file. And I couldn't agree more. In addition, an .srt file is easily editable. For instance, if one wants JUST the GPS data, one can remove the other extraneous barometer data and other superfluous data. While I concede that there may be a way to edit the embedded subtitle, I haven't tried to figure that out yet. I'm sure it's not as straight forward as editing an .srt file.Personally, I would say that this is a better system than embedding the data within the video file because it makes it easy for the user to choose whether to superimpose the GPS data or not.
Yessir. I've been flying Inspire 1's for years. I'm very well aware...<;^)Have both video and data file in the same folder if you want to display co-ordinates.
Yep. I couldn't agree more. At this point I have been okay with the embedded data. But should it ever become an issue, I imagine I'll have to dive down the hacking rabbit hole. Then again, it might be super easy. I don't know, as it's never been an issue.Remove the data file from the folder if you just want to display the video. The beauty of the 2 file system is that you can turn on the option and just leave it on. Then later if you want GPS co-ordinates they are always available.
All the best, Martin
