  1. Hello

    I wanna change 'metadata' of movie, for some extensions as .avi, .mp4, .mkv.

    I can use mkvpropedit, but only work with .mkv.

    mkvpropedit aaaaa.mkv --edit info --set "title=bbbb"

    What you advice? (with support for linux) Without remux.

    Thanks.

    MetaX can add tags to all three of those but last time I used it it couldn't change the segment title in a Matroska file (it just added the info as tags). The Matroska tagging system isn't finished though and MetaX was adding the things as if they were MP4 tags so modifying the segment title with MKVPropEdit is probably the best option at the moment.

    I think MKVtoMP4 can add tags to mp4s, I don't know of anything else that adds tags to avi, maybe virtualdub but that remuxes.

  3. He's looking for in place editing , without remux . So that rules out ffmpeg as well

    For AVI's you can use abcAVI Tag Editor .

    And exiftool can do some filetypes and some types of fields/entries . There is a chart of supported formats for Read/Write

    Other than MetaX (which isn't free) VirtuaDub was the only program I knew of that added tags to avis. I don't know about linux though, moving away from windows makes things difficult.

    VLC doesn't do MKV but I think it might do some formats, not sure which.

  5. oops, he wanted linux , so I guess that rules out abcAVI Tag Editor and vdub... and MetaX . Or is wine ok ?

    I didn't know VLC could add tags

    I read someone complaining that it wouldn't let him add tags to MKVs, you can write text into the metadata fields and there's a "save" button but I don't really know the specifics.

    - edit - XBMC (or whatever the hell it's called now) can apparently tag some files too.
