Well, Lucas, I guess I'm thinking of solutions that don't rely on external markup (RSS) in order to ID the media file. I guess I'm thinking of embedded metadata as it already exists within something like Quicktime annotations or MPEG-7. And I guess, ultimately, I'm thinking of ways to bring the embedded tagging of media files to a more important position within our media manipulation and preparation tools. The metadata space exists for this kind of stuff right now, but unless you're in a production environment where you're forced, er, expected to tag your media correctly, setting author, copyright, and keyword tags is not an obvious process. I think I'm also waiting for a big "I Told You So" from Eli Chapman because he's been prophesizing this for years, although he's usually drunk off his ass so no one believes him. ;) I think I'm going to go think about this some more. -kc. > > On Mon, 25 Oct 2004, kenyatta cheese wrote: >> Andreas is right -- without sufficient metadata, it's nearly impossible to >> sort through the video automagically.
