Hello. Im looking for software thats not iTunes that can tell me which encoder was used to create mp3 files. The best program for this that i've found is dbPoweramp. It displays all sorts of info about any audio file by simply hovering or right clicking and going to properties. Looks something like this for those whom are unfamiliar: i like to compare various versions of mp3s to find the one encoded closest to my preferred settings and bitrate and especially the encoder are the main elements i look at. Once and only once i know which files i want to keep, do i import them into my itunes. I have installed a program called mp3info but as far as i can tell, it does not display encoder information.
