I am a novice at terminal and also new to exiftool
im getting this error when using exiftool

Error: File not found - /Users/***********/Desktop/***/usa
Error: File not found - video.mp4
    0 image files read
    2 files could not be read

If anyone could point me in the right direction id appreciate it.

You must put the file name in quotes if it contains spaces.

eg:  exiftool "/Users/***********/Desktop/***/usa video.mp4"

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux/PowerShell, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
