I use Digikam for photo and video management. It's set up to store metadata including tags, titles, and ratings in the files themselves. With photos, this works as expected. If I review the meta data of an image file (e.g. with exiftool), I can see that the tags are there. However, when it comes to videos, I can not find a trace of where tags/titles/ratings are being stored. If I used exiftool (or ffprobe) to review the metadata, I see no information there. Digikam's release notes mention that ffmpeg has been used to allow for better video management, so I would expect at least ffprobe to yield results.

Where is this stored?
