> Hello everyone!

> I use digikam since a long time for all my pictures, and in general I'm

> happy with the direction of development. Digikam is IMHO by far the best
> opensource photo management software. Thanks a lot!
>
> Lately I started taking more and more videoclips with my digicam. I manage
> the
> clips together with the pictures, but here digikam shows still some
> weaknesses. The biggest problem for me is that metadata like capture date
> or
> associated digikam tags are not stored in the video files and consequently
> can get lost. Especially the missing capture date can be very annoying
> because the chronological order of the videos gets lost.
>
> So I decided to look for a solution. When I download the clips from my
> camera,
> I convert them to mpeg4/mp3/avi. Additionally I saved the capture date
> (the
> file timestamp) in the comment tag of the avi file. Of course digikam is
> not
> aware of this, but at least I will still be able to extract the
> information
> when digikam supports video metatags in a future stage.

> Are there any plans to support video file metatags or is even someone

> If not, I would be willing to contribute, if someone gives me a starting
> point
