Saving metadata to file "grayed out" for all of my video files (mov mp4 )

This is the first time in my Lightroom history that I've worked with video files, I was hoping that somebody might be able to help me figure out why I can’t save metadata to any video format.

 

Command + s doesn’t nor does Metadata / Save Metadata to File (which is grayed out). The files were created with Photoshop / Premiere Pro / iOS and is the case with any video format.

 

I would appreciate any advice or guidance on how I might be able to solve this problem. Thanks in advance - CES.

LR's support for video metadata is poor, and Adobe never implemented saving metadata into video files.  You'll need a plugin: jb Video Metadata.

Thank you for the confirmation. It utterly amazes me how Adobe has just failed in fixing these types of issues.

 

While there have been major improvements in the Develop module, every other module is roughly the same as it was back in Lightroom  3.1.

 

Sad!

 

Thanks again - CES

Very true - there seems to be no focus on data storage, just bells and whistles on editing and photoshopping.

 

There support of video files is terrible.  I thought I had synced Lightroom CC with Lightroom Cloud, but it does not upload videos from desktop to cloud, only downloads from cloud to desktop.  So my videos are all out of sync.  It also has no support for keywords to go from Lightroom CC to Cloud, or visa versa.  Best to avoid Adobe if you have a lot of videos.
