Hello Developers,
I am a developer working at AOL Bangalore on Audio Video search technology,
I came to know about FFmpeg when I was evaluating various softwares for
extracting meta data information (e.g. Title, Author, Genre etc..) from
media files. I think FFmpeg is very good in handling many file formats and
codecs, however we had to drop FFmpeg against native API's because it failed
to extract metadata for many file formats. 
Nevertheless, I have decided to bridge this gap by providing missing
functionality to FFmpeg. This fix is first in the series. I hope that this
will add significant values to the product.
Nature of Fix: Added code for writing/reading INFO tags in AVI files.
Description: With this fix it will be possible to extract and embeds INFO
tags like, title, author, creation date etc... in a AVI file. With this fix
generated files will be at least 28 bytes larger. 
Files Modified:
Thanks & Regards,
