MediaInfo provides easy access to technical and tag information about video and audio files.

Features:
  • Read many video and audio file formats
  • View information in different formats (text, tree)
  • Export information as text
  • Graphical user interface, command line interface, or library (.dll/.so/.dylib) versions available

It says it doesn't work with your version of MacOS (even though I'm using Mojave, which their own web site claims it work with it) and doesn't say which version it would work with. For some reason the Mac App store is giving me "cannot complete purchase" errors so I can't even buy that version. Total garbage.

Why the hell has the developer just added iCloud Drive to a simple app that shows media information!?! I bet it's for his stupid idea that we should pay a subscription for this app after already paying for it in the first place! Greedy devs are everywhere these days...

The DMG file that we can download for the GUI v19.04 (not from the Mac App Store, but from the MacUpdate), can't be mounted. A Warning error from the DiskImageMounter reports that there are not mountable file systems. Same result if you go to the developer's site and download the same file. Thus, it seems that this is bug, a REAL BUG! from the developer. It seems that after v0.7.60 nothing is working well at MediaArea. They looked to monetize their app and...

This developer is still quite clueless. When you drop a video file on the MediaInfo icon in the Dock, the app opens but doesn’t display the mediainfo — the app has to be opened first, then you can drop the video file on it to display the mediainfo (in macOS 10.12.4). Halfassed. Invisor is better, though it costs $3 and currently uses v. 0.7.94 of the MediaInfo library (which is nevertheless quite new).

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 0.7.36.0. 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.

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 I’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.

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!

MediaInfo Droplet is only a wrapper of MediaInfo CLI while waiting for a new version of MediaInfo GUI by Jérôme Martinez with more fonctionalities (drag and drop...). Note that MediaInfo Mac simply uses MediaInfoLib designed by Jérôme.

Do not confuse this with the excellent MediaInfo Mac: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/26861/mediainfo-mac This packaging of MediaInfo feels crude. One can't drop a file on the application so there is a second "droplet" with inferior information display. One nice feature in the "full" application is changing the display between text and HTML, but there are no command keys or buttons-one is forced to mouse around. There is also a sort of graphical display that some may find useful but, for me, it made the information about the file harder to read. Features, Ease of Use 2 Value and Stability 4 Sticking with MedaInfo Mac for now.
