    Python Module For Editing Video Metadata?

    I was wondering if there are any good Python modules for editing video metadata. I know Mutagen is very good for audio files, but I haven't been able to find any information about a module for video metadata. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe pyFFMpeg?

    There seems to not be anything else, but I think you already knew that
    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    I'll have a look at that, thank you! And yeah, video metadata editing doesn't seem to have much support.

    As far as I can see, it just supports the normal transcoding ability of FFmpeg, so not what I'm looking for (although I may use it for something else though). I'll continue looking. I may end up use a program I can run as a sub process... Maybe someday (when I'm much more skilled), I'll write my own module for this.

    PyPI brought up one that lets you get metadata (hachoir-metadata), so maybe that dev has looked at it before. Contacting the dev of that package is probably a good place to start.

    Problem. He's French, I don't speak French. I can't send a message to him on bitbucket (where he hosts his code) since I'm not a member (and I'm not going to join) and I can't find any other type of contact info (like an email address or something). And while searching I found a lot of libraries for viewing metadata (like kaa-metadata), but absolutely nothing for editing. EasyTAG can edit videos, anybody know of a CLI version of EasyTAG (<- stab in the dark)?
