Updated: 12 Jan 2006

abcAVI Tag Editor is a little stand alone utility for viewing/editing tags in AVI files. In short it allows you to get information on movie from Internet Movie Database or type it by yourself and save that info inside AVI file.
Supports RIFF INFO tags, MovieID tags, IDivX tags. Allows editing more then 40 tags, not only "Title", "Subject" and "Copyright".

Support of RIFF INFO tags ensures backward compatibility with standart Windows players like MS Media Player.

It recognizes more then 650 FourCC and TwoCC codes (shows complete names of audio/video codecs used). Has predefined lists of contents for some tags (Product, Genre, Rated, Language, Source form and Medium).

abcAVI Tag Editor allows changing of FourCC video codec signatures, AVI frame rate (playback speed) and video frame size.

abcAVI Tag Editor has Import function - getting information from Internet Movie Database. You can choose what to import (around 30 positions) and set the corresponding limitations. abcAVI sends all queries through e-mail interface and economize your bandwidth (only usefull information is getting from IMDb).

You can create your oun export templates using more then 150 predefined keywords (technical information on AVI file, AVI tags, etc). abcAVI supports TXT, HTML, XLS formats and other textual formats at your choice. As an additional function export system can rename AVI files.

Changes in abcAVI Tag Editor :

- Some inaccuracy in the tag comparison table and the description of INFO tags were corrected (information at the abcavi site).
- AVI files with several video streams were displayed incorrectly (DivX files with built-in subtitles, for example). Now abcAVI shows the information on the first stream not the last.
- Bug in abcAVI.dll was fixed - renaming of AVI files in Explorer resulted in long delays when abcAVI Info Tips had been installed.
- Layout of Russian help and manual was fixed - some cirylic characters were replaced by black squares.
- The creation of messages for IMDb was improved to avoid spam filters.
- Query sending was optimized - now abcAVI sends only one message with the cumulative query instead of multiple messages (one per query).
- The algorithm of file analysis in abcAVI.dll was improved. The files with *.avi extension but truly not AVI files are processed much more faster now.
- abcAVI writes only one instance of its signature into JUNK section of AVI file. Earlier versions wrote their signature repeating every 256 byte.
- Defined more exactly 1 video FourCC and 18 audio TwoCC descriptions (thanks to
