Xmp sidecar vs inside jpg

Postby EricB on Tue Oct 21, 2014 11:30 pm

In the options, there are 2 options concerning the way FPV write the xmp information: in a sidecar and/or inside the metadata of jpg files.
I find it pretty confusing: both are activated on my configuration since I need the sidecar for raw files but enjoy the auto update of jpg files. Thus, I would like to avoid the sidecar xmp file for Jpg file!
Would it be possible to add an option to do so?

The current options are not perfect of you have a mix of JPEG (which can use embedding without sidecar) and RAW+JPEG (which need sidecars for the raws). I'll keep this in mind for a future version.
