Tails includes several sound and video applications:

These applications can be started from the Applications ▸ Sound & Video menu.

You can also install using the Additional Software feature:

  • VLC, a multimedia player with advanced features.

    Watching IPTV channels from VLC in Tails doesn't work.

  • Pitivi, a video editor.

  • Cheese, an application to take pictures and videos from your webcam.

Most files contain metadata, which is information used to describe, identify, categorize, and sort files. For example:

  • Cameras record data about when and where a picture was taken and what camera was used.
  • Office documents automatically add author and company information to texts and spreadsheets.

Use Metadata Cleaner to clean metadata from your files before sharing them.
