Video rating not being written workaround. Bug fix version already submitted to apple.
First, I am aware of an issue in which a videos rating isn’t being written to files anymore. I don’t know what caused this to crop up, as nothing anywhere near there has been changed in ages. I have already fixed the issue and submitted the fix to apple. Lets hope it doesn’t take two months and more fighting with them to get it through.
However, the is a work around. The rating annotation field and the rating field are actually part of the same metadata tag inside the file. If you put something… Anything.. At all in the annotation field (a single space works fine) the rating will get written to the file, but won’t if it is left blank. So.. There it is. Put something in the annotation field until the next version is released.
Additionally, tagchimp is still in need of help, or they may be forced to shut their doors or move to a subscription model. If you are able, please send a donation via paypal to email@example.com
