iPhone Laptimer camera selection for video

Now that there are multiple cameras on the iPhone, will there be an update so we can select which camera to use for recording video with Laptimer? I think they announced that you can even do a multicam recording using some or all the cameras on the phone. Right now there is only a selection for fron...

Re: GoPro Hero5 and gps?

What is your recommended action camera to use with Laptimer? It seems like the only 2 supported cameras that can connect to Harry's Laptimer is Gopro or Sony.

Support for stereo audio on master video file

Can we have Laptimer (for iphone) keep the stereo audio in the master file for overlay? Laptimer currently takes the video file with stereo audio and it outputs the video with a mono audio track after overlay.

Re: GoPro Hero5 and gps?

The Gopro GPS refresh rate is much higher than the built in iphone one. I've used it for data overlay and it is more accurate. I use Dashware on PC to do the overlay on the video. You can create your own gauges etc. You do need to set your own lap start/stop points but otherwise it works. Here's a l...

Re: Status of HERO5 support

Also, Dashware is owned by GoPro now... which may be why it's integration with GoPro gps data is so easy to work with.

Dashware is still free to download and use.

Re: Status of HERO5 support

When you open the video file in Dashware, it asks you to load the gps data from the GoPro video file. Also, when you merge GoPro video files, it will automatically generate a CSV file with all the gps data in it. The merged video will not contain the gps/accelerometer data tracks. As for comparing t...

Re: Status of HERO5 support

Using Dashware, I was able to extract the Hero 5 gps data file. I can use it to overlay onto the GoPro video using the Dashware software as well. The gps data is embedded into the GoPro video file as a track similar to a video or audio track. It can be extracted from the video file. Looking at the d...

Re: Status of HERO5 support

Do we know what the refresh rate is on the Hero 5 GPS?

I downloaded both the Hero 5 gps data and the laptimer iphone data and it seems like the hero 5 has more data points from the GoPro built in GPS.

Is it better to use the GoPro gps data rather than iphone gps data?

Re: Improved video support

As a work around, I have used MKVToolNix to replace the audio from the resulting overlaid video with the audio track from the original Gopro video file. The resulting MKV video file has the overlaid video with the original audio track.

Re: Improved video support

No, the video was recorded with a gopro in stereo. After overlay, it is mono sound. I copied both the original video and the overlaid video to my computer and you can see the audio track is different now.
