How to Fix Media Metadata on Mac
To keep your video files organized and sorted, metadata plays an important role. Metadata of video or other media file describes various information like name of the file, type, date of release, language, genre, and others. If any information of your media file is missing, incomplete, or incorrect, Wondershare UniConverter for Mac (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac) can be used for fixing the video/audio metadata. It supports fixing media metadata of files in an array of formats including MP4, MOV, M4V, WMV, etc. The steps to fix metadata on Mac are given below.
Step 1 Launch Wondershare UniConverter and Choose Fix Metadata
Download, install and run Wondershare UniConverter on your Mac. On the main interface, click on the Toolbox option and then select the option of Fix Media Metadata.
Step 2 Load Video/Audio File
A new Fix Video Metadata pop-up window will open. Click the Choose File: tab to browse and add the local video/audio file.
Step 3 Add/Fix Metadata on Mac
Once the file is added, you can add, edit or fix the metadata information as needed.
- The added video type is automatically detected by the software if it falls in the Movies, TV Shows, or Home Video category. If you want to change the type of file, you can choose from the drop-down options at Type tab. If the TV show option is selected, Season and Episode needs to be entered.
- Select the Language, Genre, Content Rating, and Definition of the file from the available options at the drop-down menu.
- Additional information like Episode name, actors, director, screenwriter, tagline, description, and comments can be entered in their respective blank spaces.
- You can also change the video thumbnail as your needs. Just drag and drop the picture to the blank area and the video thumbnail will be customized.
Step 4 Save Fixed Metadata Information
Once all information is fixed, click on the Save button to change video metadata on Mac. The video file will now have the edited metadata information.
Note: Alternatively, the software also allows fixing the metadata information during the file conversion process. The icon for fixing metadata is present at the Target bar of the added file.
