Definitely I'd love to have support for video tags in gcmd. I've done a
little investigation - there are a few libs capable of handling videos:
libav (FFmpeg), libavcodec (libav.org), MediaInfo, GStreamer

Don't know yet, what's the best suited for gcmd...

BTW - under no circumstances I'll never add Mono bloat to gcmd ;o)
