    Not sure if there is a program that already does this, I google'd and didn't find anything. I would like to find a program that tell the user if a movie file is compatible with consumer products like iPods, AppleTV, PSP, XBox 360, etc. It would be nice to just drop a movie file on this program and it would split out what devices it would work with. I do a lot of handbrake/visual hub stuff and I want files that will work with all my devices or potential devices as well.

    This might even be possible with Automator, but I'm at work and can't try that out. I'm not a programmer either so if someone wants to try to put together a program, go ahead.

    I don't think so, but you could probably write a parser that reads the output from ffmpeg when passed a file, and compare it to what those devices support.
