April 28, 2014

Version 1.3.1 of the free metadata extraction and editing tool BWF MetaEdit is now available on SourceForge. BWF MetaEdit was developed by AVPreserve in collaboration with the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative Audio-Visual Working Group (FADGI) as a tool to support reviewing, editing, adding, and exporting embedded metadata in Broadcast WAVE Files. The tool is a simple desktop application that can easily be integrated into workflows that help monitor the creation and management of WAVE audio files, abilities that were previously only available in expensive digital audio production software. BWF MetaEdit is a free tool, available via SourceForge or along with many other free applications on our Tools page. The updates include:

+ Refresh of the user interface
+ Addition of “Clear these values” option in Core view in case of multiple selections
+ The program is signed (no more need to deactivate Gate Keeper)
x Resolution of bug in RF64 writing (faulty data chunk and sample count values)
x Resolution of issue with faulty TimeReference in the HH:MM:SS.mmm format
x Resolution of program freezing when “Skip non-valid files” was selected in preferences a file with missing padding was opened
x Resolution of occasional duplication of line breaks during import
x Disabled multiple selections in Tech view
