AtomicParsley/MKVPropEdit/etc. support

Files browsed through DLNA (and possibly AppleTV?) generally don't make use of .NFO files or anything like that, but some DLNA clients can, at least, read the metadata stored in MP4 or MKV files. To this end, supporting AtomicParsley, MKVPropEdit and other similar programs to update the metadata in the actual video files.

G'day Sparks,

Generally I've been concerned with MKV files, so have actually used MKVPropEdit (part of MKVToolNix) to remove specific metadata and embedded cover art like so:

mkvpropedit.exe "%1" --delete-attachment mime-type:image/jpeg -d title -d artist

AtomicParsley would be needed for MP4 files. I'll see if I can come up with a good AtomicParsley command line for you.

Of course, a nice .NET nuget package linking a DLL which handles all file types, rather than launching MKVPropEdit/AtomicParsley through shell calls, would be even better still. Alas, I don't know if such a thing exists!

I don't think we could do it directly. I don't know of any really good libraries for *modifying* video file metadata. (There's a few that will just read metadata.) Instead, I suspect we'd be launching a command line process and running AtomicParsley or whatever.)

Do you know of any NuGet libraries we could use?
