GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 626027
[tag] Add GST_TAG_APPLICATION_NAME
Last modified: 2010-08-09 21:10:23 UTC
Add a new tag to represent software used to create a media. I think the same tag can be used to represent firmware (when it applies).
From the exif spec:
"This tag records the name and version of the software or firmware of the camera or image input device used to generate the image."
So, I want a tag I'd be able to map into this, of course there are other uses for it :)

tag: Adds GST_TAG_SOFTWARE tag
Adds a new tag for representing software/firmware names
GST_TAG_CREATOR_TOOL is another name I could give to this tag if someone doesn't like _SOFTWARE :)
Works for me, but if someone can think of a name that emphasises that this is meant for the *application*, even better (GStreamer and encoding libraries are software as well, after all). Not so much a fan of CREATOR_TOOL.
GST_TAG_APPLICATION would work for me too.
or GST_TAG_APPLICATION_NAME maybe?
In the absence of other opinions, just pick whichever you like best and go with that :)
