Feature Request:Video exif metadata

Post by t_robinson03195 »

I would like to search for videos using exif metadata like similar to searching photo metadata. Is it possible to do this in Gphotoshow? I want to update my videos with Peoples names. However I need to know if this is possible and which fields would contain the data before I start updating my videos.

Hello,
gPhotoShow plays video using external player (Windows Media Player or VLC player) and has no knowledge of video file structure so it can't read any video metadata.

Digital videos have metadata. I would be updating them with key words the same as i do for images. I would select videos to display based on keywords.
https://exiftool.org/ i used this tool to confirm my videos had metadata. I would update the same name fields as images with key words.

I know it would nice to read video metadata, unfortunately it is a real mess with several containers and different way to store data. For now there is no plan to implement this feature.
