Windows 7: Editing File Properties

20 Jul 2010   #1

Editing File Properties

Hi Guys,

A little more help please!

I have just received a number of .avi files which are unhelpfully named e.g. tgi.avi. In Media Player v12 I have added an appropriate title e.g. The Government Inspector - by adding media information manually and I have forced the Player to update the file. The title now appears in Media Player.

However in the file tgi.avi 'Properties' - 'Details' - 'Description' - 'Title' is still blank and therefore Explorer does not display anything in the column 'Title' which obviously I had hoped would show 'The Government Inspector'.

So how do I insert information in the .avi files 'Properties' 'Details' ?

I have administrators rights.

Googling this problem reveals that you are not alone. I have tried on my system and find I can edit some files and not others (It's the file extension that mkes the difference) It is the same with images. I can edit a jpeg but not a Gif. This seems to be a "Tag" problem with some formats. Perhaps the real brains on this Forum could have a look at this.
