Importing Media Assets

Adding Assets

To add media assets to a document:

  1. Open the Race Data window by clicking the Race Data toolbar button in the main document window.
  2. Select the default media group "Videos" or create a new group using the "Add Media Group" button.
  3. Add one or more media assets via the Add Assets button or by dragging files onto the assets list view.
  4. The asset file timestamp and the file time zone will be autodetected in many cases. If the autodetected values are not correct, you may change them using respective fields. Select multiple assets to change the time zone for multiple assets at the same time.

Supported Media Formats

File TypeExtensionsNotes
VideoMP4, MOV

The file timestamp is taken from the capture date recorded in the video file (falls back to file creation date if unavailable)

When recording video using DJI drones, it is recommended to enable the Video Caption option and retain the generated .SRT files. These files will allow the Njord Player app to accurately detect file timestamp offsets that may be present in DJI video files.

PhotoJPG, PNGThe file timestamp is taken from the photo capture date recorded in the file's EXIF tags (falls back to file creation date if unavailable)
AudioMP3, WAV, M4AThe file timestamp is taken from the file creation date.

Note: File creation dates are typically preserved when copying your media assets from SD cards etc. However, when sending media assets via the internet (Email, Dropbox), file creation dates are often reset. If possible, import media assets into the app immediately after copying them from the device/SD card.

Managing Assets using Media Groups

When importing media assets from different (concurrent) media sources, you can add them to different media groups to enable concurrent playback.

To configure which media group is played back in a video window, use the configuration (cogwheel) dialog.

Note: The number of media groups that you can create is limited in some plans of Njord Player. Upgrade to a bigger plan to add more groups.
