.MOV file read\write comments property


I would like to read\write “Comments” property for .MOV files. If I understood correctly it should be possible with GroupDocs product.

I got a temporary license. But unfortunately all my “FindProperty” results are empty except of for “Tags.Content.FileFormat”.

Should this snippet be used to read “Comments” property?
metadata.FindProperties(p => p.Tags.Contains(Tags.Content.Comment))

I attached properties window screenshot. How could I get that “MySampleComment” value?

Please share following details:

  • Sample MOV file
  • API version (e.g. 21.6, 21.8) that you are evaluating
  • Example code

I had to put .MOV file into the zip archive - otherwise I could not attach it.

The Nuget version is 21.8.0

the code is very simple:

using (Metadata metadata = new Metadata(this.FilePath))
var properties = metadata.FindProperties(p => p.Tags.Contains(Tags.Content.Comment));

so it results to the “properties” variable to empty enumeration.
