I currently rebuild all digiKam bundle with Exiv2 video metadata support

At least all crashes inside Exiv2 about video file will disappear.

Another question is about the future of Exiv2. Look well in this message :


Robin Mills will left the project in December. Following the other message
in Exiv2 bugzilla :

1/ Exiv2 don't care about digiKam.
2/ Exiv2 drop all UPSTREAM reports from digiKam.
3/ Exiv2 will not spare more time to finalize video support.
4/ Exiv2 think about to drop video implementation from the library.
5/ Exiv2 future goals do not follow the digiKam requirements.

What's the next stage ?
