Projects / AVInfo


AVInfo is a utility for displaying AVI, MPEG (1 and 2), OGM, MKV, and IFO (DVD) information. It returns the length of a clip, FPS, resolution, codec, audio and video bit rate, number of key frames, sound parameters, the number and type of streams, and the language for audio/subtitles. It then generates a file list with statistics (HTML, plain text, or CSV).

            similar project
            libextractor is
            a similar project that in the latest release integrated most
            of the AVInfo functionality (libextractor also supports
            additional file formats). While libextractor is a library for
            metadata extraction it comes with a binary tool called
            'extract' which is, just like AVInfo, printing information
            about files.

            Oh, and George, thanks a lot for the code, mpeg/avi are
            definitely non-trivial formats, especially with the quality of
            the documentation out there, and your code helped me a
            lot :-).
