I was wondering whether there's any dashcam software (similar to Registrator Viewer) that's open-source? I'm always a bit hesitant to use proprietary software if an open-source equivalent exists. I'm a developer, so it's useful to be able for me to add new features myself

Thanks!

First off I haven't started using any editor yet! I run a Linux version called Ubuntu 16.04 and have been looking at the available editors through searches on the Internet and various forums. The best thing I could come up with was "Kdenlive" it was always mentioned when the best Linux video editors was used as a search criteria. I haven't started playing with it so can't answer any questions about it yet.
Their were a couple others that seemed OK but when I investigated them more something usually seemed to be lacking. Sorry I can't be of more help, just letting you know what conclusion I came to.

Good luck and I'll be watching your post, maybe we will both learn something new. By open source if you are interested in Linux, their is a forum called linuxquestions.org that is probably the best on the Internet, free and extremely helpful to those needing help.

Another great place to find out things:

I'm mainly looking for something that shows GPS data, like Registrator Viewer does.

I'm already a pretty active open-source contributor :)

If you want the GPS / google earth map I have found nothing. A straight editor that will play your video is Shotcut. Not much video quality loss.
