MP4 tagging

Posted by onlydarksets on July 6, 2008

I currently have babgvant’s excellent DVRMSToolbox setup to automatically find commercials, strip them out, use Expression Encoder to convert to WMV, and then tag the files appropriately (Title, Subtitle, Type, etc.).  I have a profile setup for HD and for SD sources, and everything works pretty much perfectly.

Anticipating the iPhone, though, I need to find a way to do all of this with MP4 instead of WMV.  I have a command-line for VLC, so I’m good there (DTb will convert to MPEG2, so lack of DVR-MS support is not an issue).  However, DTb does not support tagging MP4 files.

AtomicParsley appears to fit the bill.  I’ll still have to cobble something together, though.
