What is mediametadatahandler.dll?

Part of Media Metadata Handler by Microsoft

What is it?

Metadata contains descriptive information for the media content, such as title, artist, composer, and genre. Metadata can also describe encoding parameters. It can be faster to access this information through metadata than through media-type attributes.
Description of mediametadatahandler.dll from Microsoft
Metadata is closely tied to the format of the file. In Media Foundation, file formats are represented by media sources. If you want to support metadata for a format that is not supported natively in Media Foundation, you must implement a custom media source with a property handler. The property handler enables the Shell property system to read and write metadata efficiently.
