Tools for mp4 files: where can I find?


I use id3tool, id3info, and mp3info to read and write tags for mp3 files. Where can I find similar tools for mp4 files?

You're looking for a program that can view and modify video metadata?

ffprobe can view video metadata.

You can use ffmpeg to add metadata
It's fairly difficult though :\

If a gui is ok, try easytag. I use it for audio and just tested it on a mp4, works fine

I downloaded it, but building it is opaque. I loved the instructions on their website: 'open the project, build it'. Perhaps I missed something. Fortunately I could download the Centos libraries, convert them to Slack packages, and install them. It seems to work well. Thanks.
