This universal sample application reads movie files from the asset and media library then
exports them to a new media file with user defined settings. The user can adjust the exported file
in the following ways:
- Export presets can be chosen which influence the size and quality of the output.
- The file type can be changed.
- Tracks and existing metadata can be inspected.
- Metadata can be inserted or deleted.

Notes of Interest
The sample starts by displaying all of the video content in the app bundle, asset Library, and media
library. Tapping on one of the movie files in the table view shows detailed track and metadata
information about the movie, as well as show export information. Tapping on one of the tracks or metadata
items will show even more detailed information about that item. Tapping "Edit" while inspecting a movie
will allow metadata to be deleted. Metadata in the file can be replaced with predefined metadata keys.
The sample code only shows a small portion of the information one can obtain about tracks, and metadata.
The settings do not allow a time range on the export to be set.
