I am looking for a free dashcam application that I can extract GPS tracks from the saved videos (possibly using FFprobe).

1 Answer 1


To extract GPS information from video you can use exiftool. If you want plaintext format you can use command:

exiftool -ee video.mp4 >output.txt

if you want to have GPX format as output you can use command:

exiftool -p gpx.fmt -ee video.mp4 >output.gpx

where gpx.fmt file can be downloaded from here. You will need exiftool version 10.49 or later.

  • Thanks, I already tested two dashcam applications and found that the video they created doesn't have GPS tracks embedded. Do you know any free dashcam application for Android that I can use to capture data which later I can use the above tool to extract
