View Full Version : Getting Movie Information/Specifications

Jan 28, 2011, 04:19 AM
I want a way to 'grab' the file dimensions that Quicktime Inspector shows. Does anyone know a script, 3rd party program or something that can quickly easily scan my movies and report those things? Specifically Dimensions, Audio Channels, and maybe even codecs used??

Ohhh...and preferably relatively automated. Opening each individually in quick time and typing in the specs I'm after is not a solution.

Maybe VideoSpec (http://laurent.ettouati.free.fr/english/) (I prefer that, though it hasn't been updated since 11/2009), MediaInfo Mac (http://mediainfo.massanti.com/) (10/2010) or MediaInfo (http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en) (10/2010, there is a Mac OS X version to download, VideoSpec and MediaInfo Mac are using the same library as MediaInfo) can help you in some way + Apple Script or Automator.

WOW...fast response. Thanks. Having a look at them now. Actually...very good. Now I'll just try and automate the process. (gulp!....this is where I end up deleting the files instead of capturing the data!! )
