rdhar I had the same problem and have been looking into it for a while. Panasonic and I think JVC store GPS and a ton of other information inside the MPL files. I was successfully able to extract the GPS location from the MPL files using a hex editor. I am using a Panasonic DMC-TS3. See my posts here:
I also found a really nice page on the mpl format (in the above post). I have decoded about 2/3rds of the mpl file in the hex editor but some is remaining and I am not getting time to work on this much so if HD65 can help here that would be great. But should be able to make a program to do this once I am done. Will keep you posted.
Also send me some samples of your MPL files if you want. It offen helps to tell what the bytes mean in the hex editor by comparing a couple of different sources.
Will keep sharing the info I find.

I posted version 0.8. Had it available for some time - figured it's time to release.
For those of you who have been using GUI wrappers - don't bother switching to v0.8.
If however you have been using my scripts to add addresses via Google Maps based on GPS data in the video - you'll want this newer version. Google introduced constraints on address downloads, which made it skip adding addresses every now and then. The new scripts will wait for the time-outs, hence have complete srt files again.
Available via the download section of avchd2srt.webs.com.
I wonder how can I customize the format of the .srt file to be different than how it defined.
Showing the date Wednesday, 16 Oct 2013
but without GEO and seconds.
Additionally, omit the "-05:00" sign, that I'm not sure whether it is connected to the location or not, but I would like to know how to hide it either.
I guess I have to edit the .c file and recompile it but what to change exactly?
Again, thank you.
Thanks very much for this excellent tool.
Attached some small modifications to the Windows script you may want to consider for your next version. Mainly related to fixing errors with space-delimited path/file names, as well as using setlocal/endlocal to prevent internal environment variables overwriting existing ones of the same names.
Thank you very much for your excellent tool. I've been looking around everywhere how to extract the timestamps and save them into a subtitle file.
So glad I found your tool!
Unfortunately there is a glitch with my camcorder (Panasonic HC-X929EG-K). avchd2srt detects a framerate of 100 fps but the camcorder writes 50fps. Therefore, the subtitles run too fast. I took a look at the program but wasn't able to compile it (many "deprecated" warnings and some undeclared constants). So I ended up writing a wrapper perl script which does various things:
- calls the avchd2srt-core program, and post-processes the SRT output
- corrects frame rate for the camcorder Panasonic HC-X929EG-K
- translates date/time to German names and format
The last thing is just "nice to have". I implemented it because I my viewers prefer a less technical output.
Besides I saw here in the forum that there are others interested in different output formats.
If anyone is interested in the script, feel free to use it and/or modify it:
If you find bugs or make any relevant changes I'd appreciate feedback.
I'd like to extract the subtitles of a bunch of .mts files. But the times run too fast.
When I use sublib1 I can change the Camera Type and the speed is correct. Unfortunately the batch tool doesn't work there for me.
Is it possible to change the camera type with avchd2srt?
Thanks for your great application. Is it also applicable of working with RIFF AVI fles?
