.MP.JPG from Pixel phones
Google Pixel phones sometimes produce files with an .MP.JPG extension. These have an embedded mp4 in them:
At first I thought I could just split these files apart in Python using piexif. But this "Micro Video Offset" tag is not in the EXIF data, but in the XMP data (I think).
So I used PIL to look at the XMP data
But even then it is not clear where this tag is hiding.
I can keep looking, or I can use the cheesy technique of searching for an mp4 header in the file.
But it suddenly occurred to me that maybe Adobe can accommodate this file format in a nice way? Like showing the linked video in LR?
Because clearly Google is trying to force me into their ecosystem. If I can only pick my favorite frame from the mp4 by using Google's app on my phone, then I am that much further from using an Adobe product.
(I filed this under LR, but really it's applicable to all the Adobe photo suite).
