I dont use DVD/CD anymore and just rip everything to my PC and stream it via Windows Media Player to my PS3/TV
I use folder/file naming to organise/view all my media but WMP uses ID tags where present and/or file naming if not
Anyway to either stop WMP using ID tags, or any program that could batch strip out video ID tags

Sorted it - For anyone with same issue - I used Windows to remove the ID Tags
Open window containing media files > Search * to reveal all files (save you opening folders one at a time)
Right-Click on column/details bar > More >
Add 'title' column (this will display titles (tags) > OK
Sort the window by Title will group all video that have titles/tags together
Select all files/video with titles
Choose 'Remove Properties & Personal Details' > OK
Choose "Remove following properties from this file"
Tick "Title" (multiple values) - Careful not to tick/remove other important tags
Takes a couple minutes depending how many files
Now WMP displays all my media by filename
MP4 is listed as a supported file type on Mp3Tag's website. I use it for MP3, FLAC and M4A regularly myself. It had no problem opening an MP4 when I tested it. Once you get to know it (setting it up to your liking may require a little more of a learning curve given it's fairly configurable), using it's probably going to be easier than the method above. At least if you're going to be modifying tags regularly. Mp3Tag can do things like cleaning specified fields from tags (it has a "Convert/Actions" menu where you can create presets), it'll copy and paste tags, rename files based on their tags and modify tags based on file name. You an add anything from a single file to multiple folders at a time.
I do it the other way around myself. Rather than remove certain fields from tags so the files aren't ordered in a silly manner (ie Title), I make sure they all have the required field instead. Mp3Tag makes it fairly easy to do.
Anyway, a picture probably tells more of a story. By default it'll probably look a little different as I have the field columns ordered to my liking etc. This is Mp3Tag displaying the contents of a folder. They're MP3s but it'd look pretty much the same if they were MP4s.
