With WMV files at least, you can right-click the file and open the properties: from the Details tab, you should be able to edit the title there

What you need is a program similar to Professional Tag Editor .

This program allow you to change the tags of vidio and audio files like titles. You will find many such programs on internet. You can query Big Brother (Google) and get many such programs to suit your needs.
