I had a talk with Mahesh about this.
So far we have the following types of video files in read support -
[1] RIFF
[2] MATROSKA
[3] QUICKTIME
[4] ASF (Windows Media)

And the write support for the following is also there -
[1] RIFF
[2] MATROSKA

The write support for Quicktime and ASF is also being added in the meanwhile.

You are right about stating that there should be a page displaying Video Format Supported.
We will try to add that as and when we get time.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Abhinav,

Can you please verify this comprehensive list of file formats supported under 0.24 ?
http://dev.exiv2.org/projects/exiv2/wiki/Supported_video_formats

Do you have any additional notes to be added.?

Here are a few Modifications that I have to suggest -
[1] Also add WEBM format under Matroska, it works under Matroska container
[2] WMA / WMV and DivX are under the Container ASF, I think they have similar structure to Quicktime, but indeed it is called ASF
[3] RIFF also has DivX under it. I mean DivX codecs also use RIFF containers to store Metadata.
[4] There are various mobile device formats that are supported via QuickTime class. I mean format like - 3gp, 3gp2, and a few similar.

There is an exhaustive list compiled by Phil (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/).
It can be used as a reference to see which file format is supported by which container type. I mean please go through the Supported File Type section. It has been very well documented.

Everybody

Thanks to Abhinav and Mahesh for working on this. I'm going to mark this issue as "Resolved". It will be closed during review in preparation for the 0.25 release.
