Yep, everything OK.

Can save data to image XMP sidecar ok; but as explained in the OP when 
saving tags to XMP sidecar for video all I get is a message <?xpacket 
begin="" id="W5M0MpCehiHzreSzNTczkc9d"?> saved to file instead. I 
presume this is just a link to the position in the database.

In digikam, the tags are present in the database. If I tag a video and 
filter on its tag it is found. Just wondering why the data is not stored 
to the XMP file like everything else.

I also not that the XMP tag under the metadata section of the right 
sidebar has a bunch of data listed. Codec, BitDepth, Camera Used, etc; 
so digikam can see and list the basic video data. It just does not save 
it to the XMP file.
