MediaInfo provides facts on every piece of media you have got within the computer. whereas it doesn’t encompass any converter or ripper functions, it does perform in-depth analysis of all of the parameters that define a media report.
In a unified person interface this software brings together pieces of information about the container, its name and the associated tags, the bit charge, the video, audio and text layout, the whole thing on chapters and subtitles. The list includes on with numerous different less common parameters.
these kinds of are fully customizable in phrases of order and region on the screen. The entire app gets integrated into shell from the begin and the received info may be exported as textual content in a number of codecs.
