I am trying to edit the metadata field descriptions of video files that I am streaming using WMP 11. The streaming is from my Windows home server to my entire network. I am not able to effect the editing since I am only allowed read only access rights please advise me on how I can gain read/write access to the metadata description fields.

You are denied the read and write rights possibly because the account you are logged with has limited privileges. The resolution to that will be as follows:

  • You will need to log off from the account that you are using to stream the video files from the windows home server to the entire network right now.
  • And then you will log in again with an account that has administrative privileges that will allow you to read the files and also write them.
  • Once you have done that, you should be having the rights to access the metadata files.

Hello there,

I believe you already studied a lot on this matter. But this work is really easy. You might get that for audio it is quite easy and we can do it by using windows administrative power. Just right-click on the file and go to properties and select the details tab. But in case of video it is not just like that. You have to use any of the external tools. But I have good news for you. You can change it using VLCplayer also. Just click on the tool option and select codecs information. On the general tab you will get few fields to change. After editing the fields click on the save metadata.

Thank you,

Riley Weaver.

If you are trying to edit the metadata of the video files with Windows Media Player 11 but you cannot save it, there must be something wrong with the files’ properties. If you can open the video file’s metadata fields in Windows Media Player 11 but it’s just that you cannot save any changes you made, you should check the file’s properties.

It is possible that the file is in read-only. You cannot make any changes to the contents of the file if it is in read-only. You can open the contents of a read-only file but you are blocked from saving any changes. Since the problem affects all video files, check the properties of one file to verify if it is in read-only.

To check, open Windows Explorer then navigate to the folder of the video files. Next, right-click one video file and select “Properties”. In the “Properties” window, in “General” tab, at the bottom in “Attributes”, make sure “Read-only” is not checked. If this option is checked, it means the read-only state is in effect and no changes can be made to the file.

To remove the read-only state in all video files that you stream so you can change the metadata, select all video files in the folder or press CTRL + A. Once all videos are selected, right-click one video file and select “Properties”. In the “Properties” window, in “General” tab, at the bottom in “Attributes”, uncheck “Read-only” then click “OK”. This will remove the read-only attribute in all files selected.

See if this works.
