    Is there any software that will put flight stats on top of video like speed, height etc...?

    If you enable the "Video Caption" setting in the DJI GO app, it'll create SRT files. When those SRT files in the same directory as the video, you'll see a limited set of flight data on your video.

    If you want to bake that data into the video, then check out DashWare.

    I use Dashware. It takes a bit to learn but you'll like it.

    I just put a quick one together with it - worked great, once I figured out how to sync the data with the video.

    Great program, did just what I wanted it too & you cant beat free software!

    Which file does one use for the data? (I am on IOS
    Dashware takes an awfully long time to render the final movie. Is this normal, or is there something I am doing wrong? I normally use Pinnacle Studio for my videos, and combining a soundtrack, titles, pan & zoom, slow-mos etc takes a fraction of the time to export.

    For an avg 4.4GB file my i7 4770k takes about 40mins to render 1080p60fps.

    I have noticed that video straight off my sd card has telementry data as a subtitle track when played in VLC. I had to work out how to turn it off.

    The SRT files have to be in the same location as the video file, so it's not going to work for videos posted on YouTube.

    SRT files work in YouTube. Check out this link and then click on 'Upload a file' You can upload SRT files to YouTube to display captions.

    I have created a quick 20 second test with the uploaded SRT file using @sbarton 's link:- Add subtitles & closed captions - YouTube Help

    I don't know if this is the expected result but......

    EDITED to change the instructions:

    Launch the video below.
    Click on the 'settings' gear in the bottom right and ensure the subtitles are turned on'

    I just downloaded the free version of racerenderer and I find its crap compared to Dashware. It's more for cars. At least Dashware lets you test for 30 days. RR wants money right away and no ideal what gauges are on the bought version.

    Dashware is free.
