    Add metadata to video MOV files in LR and reference it in SmugMug?

    I purposely imported a couple MOV files into my LR catalogue just to see how they're handled by LR and SmugMug. It looks to me like the handling of video file metadata in and between LR and SmugMug is not as mature as it is for JPG files. I also suspect that the definitions of metadata fields...
