Two basic requirements
- A movie format which is supported and playable by macOS (MP4/MOV)
- GPS log files in NMEA format / movies with embedded GPS metadata
Embedded GPS metadata is hidden inside the movie file as a separate track. The metadata should follow the ISO6709 format or a NMEA format as used by the iOS App Movies And Maps Recorder.
What if my GPS log is not according to the NMEA format?
There are many different GPS log formats, a tool called GPS Babel is able to batch convert most GPS formats to NMEA. See www.gpsbabel.org for more information. In case your GPS log is already in the NMEA format but it does not show your route in Movies And Maps, you can define your own import filter under the App's Preferences. See section NMEA Filter for details.
What if my movie format is not supported by OSX?
You will need to convert the movie to MP4. There are multiple solutions available, a tool called Handbrake is able to batch convert from nearly any format to MP4. See www.handbrake.fr for more information.
