Viewing Format Metadata

We extract all the Format's technical metadata into iconik when you bring a file into iconik. What is presented in the format's metadata depends on the type of file that has been imported, but typically media files are very rich in metadata and will show everything from the codec used, to the bitrate and duration of the streams.

This Metadata is read only.
