If you are seeking a utility to search audio and video file metadata, I would also like to know about it. I don't think there is one, but here is an article on how you can use Finder and Terminal to do some data mining: http://www.macissues.com/2014/05/12/how-to-look-up-file-metadata-in-os-x/
Thanks for the response! However, my team is looking for a way around the data mining part.
It's been a while but I'm still looking for this same solution. Any update?
Hello, FYI I'm able to add metadata in the IPTC fields using Adobe Bridge.

Is this specific to .MOV files? or any video file type?
With some experimenting on Bridge, I'm able to "add" metadata in the IPTC fields as you mentioned (compared to .MP4 I can't). However, adding descriptions, keywords, etc.. to those fields still do not show up in the "Get Info" tab with Finder. Therefor, the video file metadata is still not searchable in Finder. Which is my ultimate goal.
Aren’t the finder tags proprietary ? I’ll check at home where they are saved...
