    Hi guys
    I have problem with streaming from VLC and then record with ffmpeg. The metadata gets lost.

    I have used exiftool.exe to input an artist name:
    exiftool -artist=my_metadata video_with_metadata.mp4
    ...and that was successful becuase I can list all metdata:
    XMP Toolkit : Image::ExifTool 10.97
    Artist : my_metadata
    Avg Bitrate : 4.46 Mbps
    Image Size : 640x480
    Megapixels : 0.307
    Rotation : 0

    ffmpeg.exe -i udp:// -c:v copy new_video_with_metadata.mp4
    The video is recorded but the metadata gets lost.
    If I stream from VLC to ffmpeg then metadata gets lost...these two lines are gone from the new video file:
    XMP Toolkit : Image::ExifTool 10.97
    Artist : my_metadata

    I have also tried with a lokal file with just ffmpeg:
    ffmpeg.exe -i video_with_metadata.mp4 -c:v copy new_video_with_metadata.mp4
    But still no metadata in the recorded file

    Please can anybody help me to understand why the metadata gets lost?

  2. Of course metadata gets lost. It's not part of the video or audio that's being streamed. That's why it's called metadata.
