How to Fix Media Metadata On a Mac

Metadata is crucial for keeping your video files organized and categorized. Metadata describes numerous aspects of a video or other media file, such as the file's name, type, release date, language, genre, and so on. If any metadata on your video or audio file is missing, incomplete, or inaccurate, Uniconverterfor Mac (formerly Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate for Mac) can be used to correct it. It can fix media metadata in a variety of formats, including MP4, MOV, M4V, WMV, and others. The steps for correcting metadata on a Mac are outlined below.
