  • Category set to video
  • Target version set to 0.28

Thanks for reporting this and providing test data. The video code requires considerable work and I hope it will be possible to undertake that work for v0.27. We have an "umbrella" to cover a collection of different issues about the video code: #1068.

it is not only gps data. nothing is read by the exif viewer.

In case you are interested, this project has done not a bad job on reading writing mp4 metadata.
For example I was able to extract location metadata (both Android and iOS) from original video files and import it to their compressed outputs.

I am not interested in anything that digiKam wants done. That project has wasted a lot of my time and not once has ever bothered to say "Thank You for working with us". For example the CMake/Visual Studio project was done for digiKam and took 200 hours. I am very busy at the moment with the v0.26 release and worked for 14 hours yesterday. Yesterday, you reported 4 issues which took up at least 2 hours. In good digiKam tradition, you didn't bother to thank me for giving your issues attention nor did you bother to provide a test file for one of the issues.
