Windows 7: Add parental rating to videos

Add parental rating to videos

How can I add parental ratings (eg PG-13, R, TV-MA) to videos that I downloaded?

Ex here is 2 movies on iTunes. One was downladed with the metadata already in it originated from iTunes (so said the uploader), and the other, obviously not.

And as it is on the picture, how can I add the HD icon too?

Setting controls

Accessing parental controls in iTunes is simple. In Windows, click Edit on the top toolbar. Select Preferences, then the Parental Control tab. On a Mac, click iTunes at the top of the screen. Select Preferences and click the Parental icon.

The first thing to look at is blocking podcasts. Not all podcasts are bad, of course, but many have little or no redeeming value for children. The Parental Control tab allows you to block all podcasts. If your children want to download an acceptable podcast, just remove the block temporarily.

You may want to block the online radio stations as well, since some of them have uncensored content.

You will also have the option of disabling shared libraries. Usually, that will be libraries on other networked computers in your home. If you have adult content in a library that’s accessible from the family computer, then check the box.
