Attributes for Video Files

This section lists the attributes commonly used for video files. It is recommended that you set attributes for files according to these lists to ensure that your files are fully compatible with a wide variety of playback applications. The attributes in this section are listed in three categories: primary, secondary, and tertiary.

Primary attributes convey the most basic information about a file. If you are creating video files for distribution, this is the minimum set of attributes you should use.

Secondary attributes contain common metadata that is important but not universal to all video files.

Tertiary attributes should be included as needed, but are not essential to describing the file.
