#3836 closed enhancement (invalid)

No way to get real metadata field names

ff_metadata_conv() is always run unconditionally. Even if we are not remuxing/transcoding from one format to another (e.g. If we are only invoking ffprobe).

I'm attaching a proof-of-concept patch that adds a decoding fflag 'nometaconv'. It doesn't change current default behavior or break conversion if remuxing/transcoding from one format to another.

I don't know if this is the right approach.

  • Keywords metadata added
  • Priority changed from normal to wish

Patches on this bug tracker are usually ignored, please send your patch to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list where it can be discussed.

At least a minor version bump in libavformat/version.h and an entry to doc/APIchanges is missing, consider not to re-indent unchanged lines to make reviewing your changes easier.
