Ubuntu – How to edit video tags


I'm trying to edit the tags (title, artist, year etc) of a .mkv file with VLC Player. I open the video and select Tools > Media information (or ctrl+i). Then I do the changes I want and click in Save metadata. The tag seems to be changed only for the current VLC Player session, because when I open the mkv proprieties window, I can see it is not updated.

Is this a VLC Player bug? Can anyone help me with this issue? Or show me a way to edit the video tags. I searched for it and only found tag editors for MP3 and other audio formats.

I've looked into this and it seems that editing mkv files isn't so straightforward. You might be interested in installing mkvtoolnix package and giving a try to the mkvpropedit command.
