View the details of your multimedia files with the help of this unobtrusive and overly-simplistic app that comes with support for drag and drop
What’s new in MediaInfoXP 2.38:
- Dolby ED2: full featured support (presentations, presentation targets, beds, objects)
- MKV: support of Dolby Vision metadata
- MXF: detection of Dolby E hidden in PCM tracks having more than 2 channels
- WAV: detection of Dolby E hidden in PCM tracks having more than 2 channels
As we are sure you already know, most modern multimedia players offer you detailed information about your movies, videos or audio files. But launching the player and loading files each time you need to get a reading is not something very productive.
Here is where MediaInfoXP comes into play. With an overly simplistic interface and a straightforward workflow, this is an efficient piece of software that allows you to view detailed info about your files in the simplest manner possible.
Simple and intuitive workflow
This said, in order to take advantage of what this application has to offer, you need to simply drag and drop any multimedia file from its location onto the utility’s main window. Another feature that you should be aware of is the fact MediaInfoXP can actually handle multiple files at once.
This said, you can drag and drop multiple files and the app displays their details, one above the other, and separated by dotted lines. While this is quite useful, we would have preferred if the app would display the files side by side, therefore making it much easier for you to compare them.
By right-clicking the information panel, you can effortlessly copy the contents to your computer’s clipboard, save them to a plain text file or even open the analyzed media file in its original location.
Detailed information about media files within easy reach
Getting down to what MediaInfoXP is all about, you get a plethora of technical information about your media files. You can find out the format, profile, commercial name, duration, overall bit rate, writing application, title, author and duration.
For video files, you get information like code ID, aspect ratio, frame rate, bit rate, color space, chroma subsampling, bit depth, scan type, scan order, stream size and a lot more. When it comes to audio files, you are provided with data such as the ID, format version and profile, mode, codec, duration, bit rate, channel, sampling rate, compression mode and alignment, just to name a few.
Some might find the app extremely useful, while for others it might not be enough
While we are sure that for most users, MediaInfoXP’s functionality and features are enough, we cannot help but feel that a few customization functions (themes or the possibility to change the format and the colors) would have made the app even better. In addition, it would have been useful if the app could export the data to CSV or HTML formats.
All in all, MediaInfoXP is an efficient and straightforward app that offers you detailed information about your media files in a heartbeat, nothing more, nothing less.
