This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Read and write video metadata into video or sidecar

Lightroom Classic does not write metadata to videos such as keywords and captions. Whenever I come across a video I want to add a keyword to in Lightroom, I have to move it to an empty folder so that Bridge doesn't have to generate thousands of previews (something it doesn't do anywhere near as fast as LR) and then keyword the video. Since Lightroom can't read updates, I now have to re-import the video. This takes up extra time. Can you let LR read and write metadata for videos, like you do for photos? Even if you export a video in LR and check the box that says to write keywords to the video, keywords aren't written to the video. Just found that out today, as I continued my search for a solution of LR changing file's creation dates whenever I keyword or caption photos and save the metadata.
