can't copy GoPro metadata

Description

Summary of the bug: I'm trying to swap out the video track of a GoPro mp4 file (0.mp4) with another (1.mp4) while keeping all the GPMF metadata in the 1st GoPro file. It results in error message "[mp4 @ 000002a357fdef40] Could not find tag for codec none in stream #2, codec not currently supported in container Could not write header for output file #0 (incorrect codec parameters ?): Invalid argument Stream mapping: Stream #0:0 -> #0:0 (copy) Stream #0:1 -> #0:1 (copy) Stream #0:2 -> #0:2 (copy) Stream #0:3 -> #0:3 (copy) Stream #0:4 -> #0:4 (copy)"
How to reproduce:

ffmpeg -i 0.MP4 -i 1.mp4 -map_metadata 0 -map 0 -movflags use_metadata_tags -c copy -copy_unknown GHO10772mux.MP4

Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not this bug tracker.

In general, swapping is not possible because ffmpeg is a transcoding tool, not a file editor.
Please test current FFmpeg git head and provide the command line you tested together with the complete, uncut console output and a short input sample to make this a valid ticket.

Thanks for the follow up.

I can't make my sample files small enough(2.5mb)to attach them so please grab them from here.

I upgraded to ffmpeg version 20191028-68f623d and ran the following with the results below.

I believe the following works as expected:

ffmpeg -i 0.MP4 -c copy -map 0:v -map 0:a -map 0:3 out.mp4

The fdsc tag is unsupported afaict.

Thanks again for looking into this.

Unfortunately that does not copy all the GPMF metadata over. Is there anything in the works to handle GoPro GPMF data? More info here https://github.com/gopro/gpmf-parser.

Hi. I just wanted to follow up on this. I got a similar error when trying to cut an .mp4 GoPro video with an app that relies on FFmpeg. According to the developer, "it seems that FFmpeg tries to process the data streams and fails to write that 'none' tag".

Here's the original issue so you can see the context: https://gitlab.gnome.org/YaLTeR/video-trimmer/-/issues/22

If this is the case, would this be considered a bug that might be escalated to possibly being fixed? How does that process work?

Any solution to this? - I tried:

ffmpeg -i 0.MP4 -c copy -map 0:v -map 0:a -map 0:3 out.mp4

But I get 4 steams in my output file instead of 5 in the original.

if I change to -map 0:4 it says:

$ ffmpeg -i GX010804\ NEW.MP4 -c copy -map 0:v -map 0:a -map 0:4 -y out.mp4

Any solution/workaround for extracting/preserving GoPro data?
