I need help figuring out how to use FMV 1.3.1 with ArcMap 10.4.1 and a DJI Phantom 4 drone.  The .mp4 and .mov video files I've created from the drone aren't recognized by the "Add an Archived Video" option.  Could this be because they are not MISB compliant and don't contain the required metadata?  If so, I'm also having trouble locating the necessary metadata information to use with the Mutiplexer tool.  I've read about .srt files with the Phantom 3 that contain such metadata, but I can't find any such files with the Phantom 4 video files.   Anyone have insight on this process?  Thanks.

Aloha JLiedtke-esristaff,

I just wanted to touch base again and check on the progress of the DJI->FMV workflow.  I'm super anxious to try it out.

Mahalo,

Hello Bledar Birbo,

We continue to work with CompassDrone (Professional DJI Dealer) on an integrated solution for working with your DJI drone data in Esri FMV.  We are making good progress with data from the Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 systems, and will then focus on the Phantom 4, Inspire 1 Pro, Mavic and Matrice systems next.   The goal is to provide a solution that easily converts your metadata into a CSV file that is directly input into the FMV video multiplexer - along with your video data -  for conversion into a single MISB-compliant video file for viewing and analysis in FMV.  We expect to have a workable solution for the initial systems (P3 and Inspire1) in December.  Thanks for your continued interest and patience.

Critigen have developed a Python script that converts the DJI Inspire drone flight log into Esri-compatible CSV for the TEAM2100 programme in London, UK.
