  • I haven't tried it, but a quick search finds http://ffmpegwinrtarm.codeplex.com/ which claims to be a version of ffmpeg which works in Windows Store apps. For help with it check out that site.

  • Like Jeff said in your other thread, you'll need to check with atomic parsley to see if they provide a version for Windows Store apps.

  • Please post new questions in new threads.

    You can set properties on a file via the StorageFile.Properties objects. Once you've modified the properties you can save them with the SavePropertiesAsync | savePropertiesAsync methods .

    This is demonstrated in the   Simple imaging sampleand the Media Hub sample app
