Video add-on metadata extraction

Hi

Is it possible to extract metadata from video (ogv) files? If not, is this a reasonable feature request?

Thanks
Mike

It's not possible at the moment. From what I can tell, metadata is stored in vorbis_comment and th_comment structures, which the code actually does read, but we don't expose them. I think it's probably easy to expose them. It's a reasonable request.
