How do I attach Keyword Tags to Video Files ???

Post by BuckSkin » Fri Jan 04, 2019 6:18 pm

I need to attach keyword tags to my various video files; some are mpg, some are AVI, and just about anything else one would acquire in a Windows collection of videos.

I blundered around with a mpg file and managed to write a "description", but it made a little sidecar file and I can only see my new description in XNView; it does not show up in Explorer nor Properties.

I tried to write an "Embedded Comment" to the same file; it acted as if it worked, but I never could find where it disappeared to.

What I would really like is to just tag the videos in the same manner that I tag images; and, then be able to find these videos by the tags they have associated with them.

If a video has a Saddle-Bronc Rider Hung-Up in the rigging and getting Stomped, I could search for any of the three tags and find the video (of course, such a video would also be tagged Horse, Cowboy, Rodeo, etc.).

Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.
