Description: 

AVI MetaEdit was developed by the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, supported by AudioVisual Preservation Solutions. AVI MetaEdit permits embedding, editing, and exporting of metadata in AVI (Standard and OpenDML) video files. This tool can also enforce file structure and metadata recommendations and specifications from U.S. National Archives, Microsoft, and IBM.

AVI MetaEdit embeds descriptive, provenance, and rights metadata into the LIST-INFO chunk of the AVI file.  The tool provides guidance on best practices for creating metadata to be embedded within these fields.  Using AVI MetaEdit, users can embed Coding History metadata, including source format, playback deck, capture hardware, and capture software, in accordance with guidelines adapted from those for the Broadcast Wave Format (EBU R98-1999).
