WARNING> 2019-04-14T01:59:00 MCEBuddy.MetaData.VideoMetaData --> Write Tags: Unknown file detected -> .m4v, writing generic tags

So every recording is being loaded into iTunes as a Home movie and the meta data is gone vs Movie or TV Show. The whole last section is totally different???

Thanks for reporting this. We have an updated metadata writing module in 2.4.10 which writes a lot more metadata to mp4 files. It accidentally missed writing the tags to .m4v files (it only wrote to mp4).

This has been fixed in today’s 2.4.11 BETA build. Please try it out and let me know if you’re still facing an issue.

Thank you! I will check it out…just waiting for the 64bit build to drop on the site.
