I would like :

1. Find a program for windows 8.1 able to show the metadata of an audio file
2. Find a program for windows 8.1 able to show the metadata or exif of a video file

Better is free.

Best Regards

1. Find a program for windows 8.1 able to show the metadata of an audio file

When you say metadata, do you mean the tags?  If so, Mp3tag is my favourite.  http://www.mp3tag.de/en/
If you don't mean tags, please explain further.

2. Find a program for windows 8.1 able to show the metadata or exif of a video file

EXIF data is usually used for image files, i.e., photos.  To view EXIF data, you can use the ExifToolGUI found here: http://u88.n24.queensu.ca/~bogdan/

Furthermore, you can also use my PlayTime app to view some types of data of both audio and video files.  http://skwire.dcmemb...om/fp/?page=playtime

Works fine. But I don't see how to see the tag of the day this recording was made. I have an indication in the name file 2015 september , third, but I don't see this tag .

I would like to determine when this file was recorded

Best Regards

mp3tag don't scan the 2ga files.

I configure following the similar instructions you give me with PlayTime.
but I don't see the tag the real date the audio was recorded.

PlayTime doesn't show that type of data.

Again, a 3ga is a movie file.  I think ExifToolGui only works with image file types.

Trying to find an application for 3ga :

"As far as I can tell, these file types are merely containers, and if you change the extension on the file to either mp3 or wav, the appropriate Windows media converter will open it without you having to do anything else at all.

 

So before going any further, I suggest that you try changing .3ga to .wav or .mp3 and see what happens - this might be easier than you think!"

Sorry these files are audio files for me. I try with kmplayer and vlc . Only audio.

Video...audio...  Either way, it's not an image file so ExifToolGui isn't going to work for this purpose.  Are you certain that 3ga files have any sort of metadata in them?

change the extension from 3ga to mp3 give good results because i can sound the audio, but the metadata is exactly the same....


I don't see how to determine the recording date of the file.

Good question Skwire !!!!!!

I suppose that an audio file keeps record of the date of the recording, but the only creation date I see is the moment when I copy from the original source (really I receive the file with an email)

Skwire . I think is not possible to know
I have seen other mp3 files to compare and i can't be sure at all of the recording date.
