    It doesn't make sense to "remove" them as they are important for a correct chrominance display, and the HEVC video header reserved a few bits for this flag anyway (thus a flag editor for the MKV container won't work, as they are in the video content, not in the container). It might be set to a value meaning "unknown", but these are the defaults for HD content, anyway.

    Is there any reason that makes you believe they should not be there?

  4. Code:
    ffmpeg -i "INPUT" -codec copy -bsf:v hevc_metadata=colour_primaries=-1,hevc_metadata=transfer_characteristics=-1,hevc_metadata=matrix_coefficients=-1 "OUTPUT"
    should remove "Color primaries", "Transfer characteristics" and "Matrix coefficients", see: https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-bitstream-filters.html#h264_005fmetadata

    Don't know a way to remove color range. (+ I think it's a bad idea to remove it)

  5. ffmpeg -i "input" -c copy -bsf:v hevc_metadata=video_full_range_flag=1 "output"

    As you should be aware, it will change how video players display your file.

  6. @butterw: your call does not remove the 'Color range' info it just changes it from 'Limited' to 'Full',... and no 'hevc_metadata=video_full_range_flag=-1' doesn't do the trick either.

  7. Yes, I'm assuming the OP wants to change the range from Limited to Full.

    The OP request to remove this tag makes little sense to me otherwise, given that Limited will likely be handled the same as if the parameter is absent...

  8. I thought that with with screenshot https://forum.videohelp.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=55361 he was pretty clear that he wanted to remove the info,..

  9. Unfortunately, the OP wasn't clear enough with regard to his motivation.
