I am having an issue with attaching my GPS points for my videos to their metadata. I can assign a video a position using the Geolocation editor; however, the assigned latitude and longitude do not show up in the Exif metadata. Is there a way to embed it through digiKam?

With 6.0.0, we have now a FFMpeg low level metadata parser based on libav C API
for video files database registration.

The Exiv2 video support is not used anymore as this code is buggous and nobody
sound motivated in Exiv2 to finalize the code.

The original post for this file must be fixed now and video metadata support
with ffmpeg must be enough to populate database entries.
