How to Edit Video Tags

Digital multimedia, including audio and video files, use identifying tags to provide information about the media. Video tags can include the artist's name, file name, date of creation, length and file size. Tags are informative without altering the actual content of the file. When a computer user downloads a video file, it may include an incomplete or incorrect tag. However, many media players offer the ability for users to change tag information for videos and other multimedia using the player's interface.
