How to Set MP4 Video Tags for Your iPod CodeUnit 23 JAN 2011

Now that I enjoy watching animated television shows while I work out at gym, the process of converting my DVDs to iPod MP4 video files has begun in earnest! One of the last problems I encountered dealt with the lack of info tags on my converted files, meaning that the iPod wasn’t giving me any decent information on any of my newly added files. Enter Mp3tag – the universal Tag Editor!

Mp3tag is a powerful and easy-to-use tool designed to quickly edit metadata for most common audio and video formats where ID3v1, ID3v2.3, ID3v2.4, iTunes MP4, WMA, Vorbis Comments or APE Tags are supported.

It can rename files based on the tag information, replace characters or words in tags and filenames, import/export tag information, create playlists, etc. – essentially the Swiss army knife of video/audio file tagging.

Creating basic name tags for your MP4 video files is as simple as dragging and dropping the files into the interface and selecting the generate tag from filename option, selecting the matching pattern to apply.

Simple, efficient and ultimately just nifty.
