WHICH TOOLS TO ANALYZE EXIF METADATA of IMAGES & VIDEOS ?

Post Posted: May 04, 19 09:29

Hello,

I am doing a project on computer forensics and I need to analyze the EXIF metadata of Images (JPEG) & Video files taken from smart phone.

I have tried the below mentioned tools. I am little bit satisfied with EXIF Pro, but GPS/Location entries of images are not accurate as shown in picture properties in mobile , i.e EXIF Pro shows slightly different location from where the photos were taken .


1. EXIF Pro. (http://www.exifpro.com/)

2. Exif Viewer (https://download.cnet.com/EXIF-Viewer/3000-2193_4-75912951.html)

3. Exif Data Viewer. (http://www.exifdataviewer.com/)

4. ExifTool by Phil Harvey

Please recommend any best EXIF tool which gives best results for analysis of Images & Videos metadata.

Thank you

And what does that mean ... 'slightly different'? What is the error? Are you saying that the tool desn't convert the EXIF data correctly?

Or are you saying that the GPS data, at the time it was collected, had an error that is larger than what you should expect from consumer equipment?

If it's the original data that happens to be wrong, no tool in the world can make it right without extra work. I hope that goes without saying ...

I have tried irfanview now, Results of EXIF Pro & IrfanView are same approximately. irfanview supports VIDEO, but I could not found EXIF options for video.

Hi,

finally I have found a better EXIF reader which also gives most appropriate EXIF GPS locations (xyz coordinates) of IMAGES & VIDEOS as well.

The tool name is : MediaInfo. MediaInfo is a convenient unified display of the most relevant technical and tag data for images, video and audio files.

MediaInfo can be downloaded from this link: MediaArea.net


Thank you all for you kind replies.
