Metadata

Control how Fast video cataloger writes metadata tab outside of the current catalog.
All of these options are disabled by default since writing extra files will have some effect on performance.

Write .nfo files

This option will write out .nfo file next to the video file. The .nfo file contains basic metadata like keywords, description, and rating in the Kodi XML file format. This option is recommended if you want to share the metadata in the catalog with another video media manager that can read .nfo files. If the video file already has a .nfo file the content of the file will be updated with the data from Fast video cataloger.

Write metadata to video files

This option will write basic metadata like keywords, descriptions, and ratings into the metadata section of the video file. This will make it available in Windows properties of the file. It also means that the metadata will be available for Windows searches. Some older video file formats can not support metadata and in these cases, the option is ignored. Modern formats like mp4 do support metadata.

When you are integrating Fast video cataloger into your solution also consider the much more advanced scripting interface.
