Hi, I have been puzzling over this for a while. I've searched Google and found several projects for getting MP3 tags and WMA, but no MP4. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

There could be id3v2 tags that can be read with such a library, you can also try this tip about using Quicktime control to get tag info: Read M4A tags in C# - CodeProject

Thanks JohnH, I tried modifying that source code to work with MP4 files, but all of the values come up blank. Specifically, I am trying to get the encoded created date from an MP4 if that helps.
