Description Sean-Der 2016-11-09 07:11:02 UTC
Allow users to set the value of metadatacreator.

Currently I use this to identity what process created a file.

If this patch is not acceptable would I be able to expand the tags accepted, right now only artist/title seem to be supported.

Patch against git master

Seems fine to me, it's basically like the "writing-app" property in matroskamux. You probably want to include the version in the default string though.

Also in the NULL case in set_property(), it should be better to reset it to the default again

Hi Slomo!

Thank you so much for the quick review, probably the fastest turnaround I have ever seen in Free Software.

The attached patch resets to the default case in the NULL case, and includes the PACKAGE_VERSION in the default.
