Is it just me, or does this app not support drag and drop? You can't even drop a video file onto the open info window. Far too troublesome and unintuitive to have to navigate to a file's location using the "Open" command. No thanks.

Prior to updating to 0.7.60 I was using 0.7.58. I'm sticking with 0.7.58. 0.7.60 added a "easy view" as the default view. I prefer the "tree view" which is the default in 0.7.58.

It's ok to add various views but IMO it should remember the user's choice and use that the next time the app is used. I don't want to have to change it every time.

Went back to MediaInfo Mac The new version MediaInfo 0.7.54 is ugly as hell, has a terrible Java like GUI, the icon is ugly and full of broken pixels. The whole thing reminds me now of some kind of Java program from the past. Its an esthetically pain to use this software. The older version, though no beauty, is at least Mac like, nice and friendly. This was an failed upgrade attempt which ended in a downgrade. I JUST found out: my older and much nicer version is now commercially sold in the AppStore under the name Media Inspector. Indeed, a much nicer program.

Version 0.7.54

Media Inspector (formerly named MediaInfo Mac and still uses libMediaInfo) and MediaInfo are made by different developers.


"Media Inspector" (formely "MediaInfo Mac") is not the same product, it is made by Diego Massanti, as a (friendly) wrapper to my library (this is explicitely written on all pages made by Diego). "MediaInfo" was ugly, but since March 20th 2012, a new MediaInfo GUI is released on the App Store with a better GUI (Mac style)

This is great. My only gripe is that i'd like to be able to drop media files on the application icon and have it open them like many of these type of apps do, not just on the window of the already open application - that way i could put it in my Finder toolbar and have it available in one step all the time.

Thanks to the developer for not joining the parade of other devs who recently switched their similar apps from freeware to shareware in order to score some cash at the crApp Store.

I love this app, but Iā€™d also love to see a couple of features implemented: 1) Ability to change font size to make it more legible; and 2) Ability to compare multiple apps. Otherwise, great app.

there are tons of freeware software on the App Store.
your pissing on the desire of the developers to make a living. Screw you. why don't you create an App yourself and give it for free and eat grass for the rest of your life.

MediaInfo is an indispensable tool for everybody working with video on the Mac. Why pay money for other apps that do the same without adding significant functionality at the core? This one here is the original thing and it's free.

Highly recommended!

The latest version of MediaInfo is 0.7.43:


MediaInfo Mac, the related Cocoa program which uses the library from MediaInfo, has been renamed to Media Inspector, is no longer free, and is only available in the Mac App Store.
