In message , R.Wieser

_is_ there something intrinsic to the format?

The specs to the format seem to indicate there is, and I found something to
manipulate it here :


VLC does it for some video files, using something that was/is so obvious
I hadn't spotted it (-:
Personally I would not depend on those ADSes, but wanted to name them
regardless. - both as an option, but also as a warning :-)

I don't want to use something associated by the filesystem; that's not
that different, to me, from storing a text file of the same name in the
folder. I wanted something that actually makes the comment part of the
file, like IrfanView (and maybe others?) does with .jpg comments: so
that they'd even survive being emailed, for example. (Not that I'd often
email video files, I just give that as an example.)

Had to remove "uk.tech.broadcast". Its not carried by my usenet server.

Interesting; I don't think any of the servers I use (with the possible
exception of the Mozilla one) object to such headers. My news _software_
fails if I try to post something where _none_ of the 'groups specified
are carried by any of the servers, but not where only some of them
aren't. (It doesn't _tell_ me it's failing - just the post sits in the
outbox for ever, doesn't go. [It _does_ object if I use a newsgroup it
knows is carried by _none_ of the servers it deals with, as I just
rediscovered as I'd mistyped UTB.]) Note I've added UTB back in case
anyone there is following.
