    I've been looking over the forum and always wondered why removal tags are soo difficult. Or rather, the developer who created the software couldn't include an option to remove their own tags.

    There are heaps of open source stuff, or paid which do the job for music, maybe in some cases within their own products, I don't see why incorporating the same option or open source software to remove metadata tags.

    Usually open source software would be tailed only for specific music metadata ID3 tags etc... However regarding video metadata, the same thing applies, only harder to find, and even if found, doesn't work as expected or only removes certain tags if used by say MeXas.

    I'm guessing the same is the same with Identify 2. Though it would be a good feature in any product, peoples mind set is probably "People don't make mistakes, everyone is perfect" But thats not reality. The solution typical could be "overwrite" tag info with the new one, but then you may have problems on devices like Apple TV, or the new tag info may not correctly overwrite everything .... "everything" would be the key here. Some are only partial, while probably still leaving some of the old.

    if you download the batch encode automator actions that are in the post for automating dvd ripping, encoding, and tagging that is stickied. There is an action that will remove all tags via a right click on the file.

    Subler should do fine with that although you'll have to do it on a file by file basis.
