I'm currently working on a project called VideoInspector. This will be a "super codec viewer" with quality factor and as many details as possible about video files.

  • Container support : AVI, Matroska
  • Codecs requirements automatic detection
  • File intergrity check
  • Automatic, content based container format detection
  • Displays movie info : Duration, streams
  • Displays Video stream info : Resolution, bitrate, frames per seconds (FPS)
  • Displays Audio stream info : Sample rate, bitrate, number of channels
  • Calculates video quality factor
  • International support
  • And much more !
