abcAVI Tag Editor
abcAVI Tag Editor is a freeware Windows tool that helps you view and edit AVI tags, providing some extra features to enhance the whole experience.
The interface is a bit cluttered and you shall notice that from the first launch.
It organizes all features in tabs, which is indeed helpful to both beginners and those with a bit more experience, but the user is simply assault with an avalanche of features. As a result, some rookies may not know where to start and a few minutes to figure out which features is which may be needed.
Once you open a video, abcAVI Tag Editor automatically scans it and shows information such as file name, duration, file size, video quality, video and audio streams.
The tabs below however are more important because they let you edit the tags and fill in details such as title, director, copyright, genre and subject, movie credits and other information. Plus, it can automatically import information from IMDB, with dedicated options to choose which and how many details it should process.
The application also comprises an “Options” screen that again seems a bit too cluttered, with all options displayed in the same main window, but in a separate tab.
You can thus adjust options concerning tag reading and writing, video file search, shell integration, email and interface.
On the good side, abcAVI Tag Editor provides a great amount of features, but on the other hand the program clearly needs a more user friendly approach. It could all be very difficult for beginners, mostly because of the interface.
Overall, abcAVI Tag Editor is a good project that needs some improvements, especially when it comes to the way it interacts with the user. Still, it remains a stable and reliable product with a wide array of features.
