Python script to inject the EOI marker into panoramic photos created by the S7 camera. In addition the script allows to dump the Samsung specific data that is added to the image

# The Samsung trailer format is based on the implementation from ExifTool

Replace if version != 101: by if (version < 101) or (version > 103): in line 53

This is wonderful thank you, it's helping me import my panoramas into Shotwell on Linux. I'm wondering, if there is this extra MP4 track inside the JPEG (I didn't even know that was possible) and you can "dump" it to a separate file, could there be an option to exclude it from the corrected JPEG? I don't need that track and it's about a third of the whole file size.

@nrrkeene
The following command (if you have jpegtran) will strip the extra junk (after the file has been corrected):
jpegtran -copy all -optimize fixed.jpg > fixed_stripped.jpg

Added a fork that works w. S8+, plus some decorations for batch friendliness.

I made a rust version which can strip the files of the videos and reduce the size in about half. This version merely makes the file a valid JPEG file but the video remains in there. I also made some binaries if somebody is interested: https://github.com/frapa/sampan
