MediaInfo is a program that can provide you with various information about your audio and video files.
You should pay attention when installing this tool. Since it is ad-supported, MediaInfo offers to download and install a third-party component that it doesn’t need in order to work properly.
Once you initiate the tool with the plain and simple interface, you can configure preferences, such as interface language and output format. But you can also select your preferred custom sheet and text.
You can import files or folders by using the file browser or the “drag and drop” method. Furthermore, you can toggle the viewing mode between “Basic”, “Sheet”, “Tree”, “Text”, “HTML”, and others.
You can view the file path, format, file size, duration, overall bitrate and bitrate mode, encoded date, copyright, sampling rate, duration, frame rate, bit depth, scan type, compression mode, stream size, language, and more.
In addition, you can export information in a customized format (e.g. CSV, sheet, text, HTML, XML), create a header file, enable advanced mode, and more.
The tool uses a moderate amount of system resources and doesn’t include a help file. However, MediaInfo didn’t freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. On the other hand, the interface is very simplistic and could use some improvements.
Also, some features are not available in the “Options” menu. Even so, we strongly recommend MediaInfo to all users, especially to the experienced ones.
