Anybody know what the additional .SRT files are that get saved on the SD cards? And are they important ?

When importing the card into Lightroom, it comes up with a message saying the .SRT files were not imported.

If you delete the SRT file, the video playback will not show the information, such as your home gps location, barometer, shutter speed, iso, exposure value, etc.  You turn off the information recording in the video section of the DJI go app and it will no longer record the SRT files.  I personally just keep the file, in case I want to know in the future, what time the video was recorded, the gps location, barometer (height, etc).

Thanks for the help and information.

I see that it does not import into lightroom.

I think they are there by default, but I don't see them in the footage on a Mac but on a PC.
When you transfer the files from your SD card the should be part of that transfer.

You have to enable SRT file writing by turning on Video Captions under your video settings.

If you are on a Mac, VLC will play back the video and overlay the SRT data.

SRT files are the data from your video.  Coordinates, elevation, etc.

Will the SRT data show when using iMovies (Mac software) ?
And a very stupid question, what is VLC and does it come with the Mac?

I don't know if iMovie supports SRT files.

VLC is an open-source cross-platform video player. I keep it around for stuff like this. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html

Thank you for the info, will go source VLC and give it a try.

The Link shared does not work, comes up with a 404 error.

Just managed to download VLC, thanks for the help. Love the SRT data that gets overlayed, would be nice if iMovies could display this info as well.

I am a mac user and can not find the SRT files at all. Where should I be looking?

Are they on the SD card or video cashe file on the tablet?

The record audio with video cashe option is on and I can view and here the audio from the the Go 4 App's video cashe file.

I am trying to get at the gps files as linked to the video.

I have VLC...

I am trying to get the .SRT file enabled on my Phantom 4 Pro plus...
I have "Video Captions" ON, I have tried both MOV and MP4 video recording in both 4k and 1080P, the videos record fine, but I never get accompanying .SRT files. What am I missing?

If you enable Video Captions they'll be alongside your photos and videos on the Mavic's memory card.

Gary, you might ask on the Phantom 4 Pro + forum, sounds like you are doing everything right. Good luck!

Has somebody tested the Mavic 2 srt files with the latest firmware? Do they include GPS waypoints?
