    Resolved [RESOLVED] Get Extended details of video device used

    as the title reads, i am getting info from a video file and cannot seem to identify what device it was recorded on.

    Usually from a phone and for camera i can get the phone model using namespace, but do not see the same option for Video

    can anyone advise?

    well not sure u can.
    if theres some info in the meta-data, but no all video format has that.
    like mp3, u can include a cover, but not all mp3 has that. the same with information about author etc.

    If you're sure the video files even have that field, you might need a different property handler. The default Windows one doesn't expose all properties.

    If you can see it in Explorer or the property page (Details), you can get it programmatically, if not you might need a different handler, e.g. https://sourceforge.net/projects/taglibhandler/

    re the field , i dont know if it does. Was asking if anyone new if it was even possible.
    as i said, i can get this from an image file but now even sure if a video file even has this as a field somewhere.

    As a family we have different phones with images & videos.
    So making a backup based on file dates & times etc. all to the same master library.

    I dont want to put one phones videos in its own folder, rather i want to have something like

    Video Library/2022/1.January/video filename 12-09-2022 - phonemodel.mp4 ( or phonename)

    tks

    I don't think it is retained in a video file, or in any case Windows doesn't seem to extract it:

    Video (Windows Property System)

    Even if it is in the files the info recorded in there depends on the recording software used on the phone. This isn't like using a dedicated video camcorder.

    Contrast that with the Photo property set, which does have camera manufacturer and model. Still, with a phone we're back in the same situation: dependent upon the software used to report and report the truth.
