That was my concern actually. I noticed by looking at the wiki that
all hVideo examples had only basic meta data that resemble mp3 idtag.
I personally don't want to force people into using a big bunch of meta
data like IMDB does but that is what I need for my website, so I'm
just asking if that would be possible or if that would just be too
much information for a video microformat?
