The ArcGIS Full Motion Video Add-In is available for download

The ArcGIS Full Motion Video 1.0 Add-In (for ArcGIS 10 and for ArcGIS 10.1) is available for download from

ArcGIS Full Motion Video Add-In 1.0This Add-In allows you to play live streams of video or video files in your map.  Frames from the video can be extracted as single georeferenced images, or groups of images stored in a mosaic dataset. Playback of time-stamped video data can be synchronized with other time-enabled data and played together on the map.  Features can be digitized directly on the video player and will appear on the map. The Add-In supports playback and management of multiple simultaneous feeds of video, and the map can display the footprint of the video image, the center of the image, and the position and track of the video platform. The Add-In also allows you to record the sensor, frame center, and footprint data in a file geodatabase as a video plays.
The ArcGIS Full Motion Video 1.0 Add-In requires a license to run. A demonstration license (which times out on September 30, 2012) is included in this package. Permanent licenses will be available soon.

    May I ask what kind of video files should I prepare for this Add-In?
    Do I need special camera to photo such video?

    Where could I find a sample file (or a stream URL) to test some of the features provided by this Add-In ?

    I use a concurrent license. How I have to run the included demo license?

    Hello BBooth

    I’m testing the extension of full motion video
    I could facilitate for a video file with appropriate metadata couple weeks before they published the mini-tutorial
    Thank you.

    Has anyone got any further information on camera systems that supports either the MISB 0601 standard.

    Will this add in run on single use as well as concurrent licenses or not?

    any advice will be highly appreciated.

      The ArcGIS 10.0 Full Motion Video 1.0 Add-In is still available on the customer care portal. Set the Version dropdown on the software page to “All Releases” (the default value is “Latest Release”) and you should see it in the list.

    Has anyone further information on camera systems that supports the MISB 0601 or 1040.5 standard?

  9. wtgeographer says:

    I am unable to activate the toolbar (grayed out). Is this possible at 10.2? Any suggestions?

  10. mattokeeffe says:

    This looks like a relatively old thread but it appears that the same question has been asked several times but not answered, so I’ll ask again.

    Are there any examples of hardware that are needed to create this kind of video? I understand that the camera needs to support the metadata standards listed below but none of the popular search engines appear to point me in the direction of anything useful.
