Audio and Video document properties

Document properties for audio and video are largely deliberately set by the creator, and our metadata extractors Filecats Professional and Filecats Metadata can import metadata from file types including:

  • MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3)  in .mp3 format
  • MP4 (MPEG-4 Part 14), such as .m4a, .m4b, .m4p, .m4v and .mp4
  • WAV (Waveform Audio File Format), and
  • WMA (Windows Media Format) .

The document properties for audio and video files include those in the ID3 standard, but extend beyond that.
