FileBot needs to update tags

Post by Johnshin111 » 08 Nov 2019, 06:47

Some servers, like TwonkyMedia, foolishly use the Title tag information to control what title it shows. FileBot seems to not be able to update the Title tag once it has been written by iTunes, or maybe just if it's an m4v. FileBot does seem to be able to update the tags if the file is a mkv.

VLC seems to have the same problem--you can edit the metadata and save it until your mousebutton finger is calloused, but the changes never get saved.

Thanks

John

FileBot does not modify files. It therefore cannot modify the embedded title information in mkv or mp4 files.


:!: Note that modifying files means opening yourself up to the possibility of corrupting files, which is a big no-no for the FileBot project.


However, if you so choose, then FileBot can help you write tags via 3rd party command-lines tool:
