    AVI file description editing

    Hi Guys,

    I currently have a whole heap of avi files and I want edit the file descriptions in order to include details like, year, comments, director etc. However when I try to access them the regular way Right click>Properties>Details the only details listed are relating to the actual video data properties. All of the details pane is locked and it wont allow me to change them.

    For my mp3 files i have no problem putting in the settings I want. does anyone know why my avi files wont allow this? and is there an easy way around it?

    thanks in advance

    Do to the fact .avi are not supported by movie maker (which would be ideal to edit details, etc.,) try editing with free Format Factory.

    Have you tried this?

    Use format Factory to convert to .wma/.wmv then use Movie maker to edit details.
