[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] write reel_name metadata to tmcd atom

My last patch added read support, now this on adds write support for reel names in tcmd atoms, as documented here:


The docs refer to this as "Source reference" but I used the metadata key "reel_name" because thats what FFmbc calls it.
This might also help address ticket#3753. I tried to keep the patch very minimal. Currently, the reel name is only written if both timecode and the metadata are added to a specific stream.

example usage:

ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -t 1 -timecode 01:00:00:00 -metadata:s:v:0 reel_name=ABCD123 OUTPUT.mov

ffprobe OUTPUT.mov

Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'out.mov':
    major_brand     : qt  
    minor_version   : 512
    compatible_brands: qt

      reel_name       : ABCD123
