I'm slowly developing a simple video marking tool http://video.geekout.org.uk/, where I crowd source help to mark videos as interesting.

Currently I'm storing each mark in individual JSON files, for example.

However I want to be able to export to a metadata format I can import easily in Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro, whereby the markers will appear on the time line, so I can then I can cut it into a compilation.

So workflow I want is:

  1. Upload mp4 for video annotation tool like http://video.geekout.org.uk/
  2. Import mp4 into Adobe Premier & import "metadata file" from http://video.geekout.org.uk/
  3. Edit in Adobe Premier

Note that the video annotation tool cannot write metadata straight into the mp4, so it needs to be an external format.
