I am running a process where I am creating a GPX file from a GPS enabled video. What I want to do is embed the video file name into a GPX file attribute so that when I “click on” a GPX point, I get the file name as an attribute.

I could use the NAME attribute/tag and apply that to every track point, thousands of them, but I would like to see if I could add something to the header that would apply the file name to all track points as an attribute. Sort of like the TRKPT tag.

Any ideas?

Looking at the GPX schema (http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1/gpx.xsd) it looks like you should use the metadata link element to give a link to a video that applies to all points.
