Fast video cataloger 6.30 is now available with new support for video metadata. Download from our download page

metadata written to video files

We now support writing New option to save out metadata inside the video file. This option will save basic metadata like keywords, descriptions, and ratings into the metadata section of the file. This will make it available in Windows properties of the file. This also means that it will be available for Windows search. Please note that this type of metadata is not supported by some of the older video containers but it should be supported by modern formats like mp4. This option is disabled by default but can be enabled from preferences on the metadata tab.

.nfo metadata next to video files

We have added a new requested feature to write out .nfo file next to the video file. The nfo file will contain basic metadata like keywords, description and ratings in the Kodi format. This option is only recommended if you want to share the metadata in the catalog with another media manager. It is disabled by default and can be enabled from preferences. If the video file already has a .nfo file it will be updated with the data from Fast video cataloger.

More shortcuts

It is now possible to assign shortcuts to show and hide Windows. No default shortcuts are set for these, but you can assign them if you have a need. We still recommend using layouts in most cases.

Bug fixes

And we have continued to fix reported bugs. Import videos can now handle special folders correctly and can detect if a video has been imported already. I.e. if you import videos already in the target catalog they will be skipped. If you had the playlist window undocked and floating and then tried to change the order of playlist items the program crashed, this is now fixed.
