Getting Data In

Can Splunk ingest video files?

I had a random question from a Splunk user, can Splunk ingest video files (mp4, avi, quicktime, etc.)? I'm not sure what you could extract from the file (GPS coordinates?), or if splunk could pull up a video from the ui (maybe ITSI?), but I told him i'd look into it. Anyone know the answer?

I have done this before using the Protocol Data Inputs App : www.baboonbones.com/blog/get-binary-data-splunk/

But you will need to create your own custom handler to pre process the raw video data and transform it into textual meta data for indexing in Splunk.

I found the cause, your URL redirects to something https://www.baboonbones.comblog/get-binary-data-splunk/, which is not a valid, So i added '/' after the .com and before the blog. and here I found it.
