Video Information Options not set in MP4

I have Camtasia 2019. I am creating an MP4 by going Share -> Custom Production -> New Custom Production. I then set the Video Information Options, but most (not all) of these don't make it through to the final MP4. For example, on the Author Information tab, I type information into the Creator, Publisher, Rights management, Publisher and Homepage boxes. But when I right click the MP4 in Windows and select Properties -> Details tab, all I see is the "Contributing artists" field filled in with my Creator information. Everything else seems to be lost. Am I doing something wrong?

It doesn't get put into the video.

If you do a production with the smartplayer, that info gets applied to the "your-production-name.html file.



If you open that file in a text editor the info will be in the head meta tags.





I never use the information option as I usually use my own custom html files
with the meta data I need already added and I add or change what meta tags
that are needed

I also use my own html files because the generated html files that Camtasia creates scale
badly in various devices.

Thanks for that. So the bottom line is that there's no way to set the copyright property of the MP4 file? Seems like a huge oversight :-(
