Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Most of such comments come from ProRes having displayed and stored order inverted, for a reason I ignore.
MediaInfo shows how displayed order is wanted by the container, and sometimes the container says that stored order is TFF and displayed order is BFF ('fiel' atom in QuickTime header).
In that case, display of MediaInfo is:
Yes, it tries (if "Check for newest version" is checked).
When this checkbox is checked, MediaInfo connects to mediaarea.net website too for anonymous statistics. (how often MediaInfo is used, which OS/Language/Country is the most used...)
If you don't want to autorize anonymous statistics, uncheck the "Check for newest version" checkbox.
It depends on what you require:
After this, you must select your operating system:
And your platform:
Always the latest version, except if:
First, maybe I don't have specifications for it.
If you have documentation about the format, please contact me. Second, maybe I don't have the time on free support for implementing it.
If you desire to accelerate the development, don't hesitate to contact me for a quotation.
I have no problem for accepting a (good) patch for the support of format, don't hesitate to propose a patch.
You are not a programmer? If you really think that a motive is true, I guess you'll have no problem for finding someone else ready for implementing this feature if you think that the rate of the main developer (see "Why is format not supported?", but you already asked for the quotation, right?) is too high.
You don't succeed to find the funds for the development? Maybe it is because a motive is not true...
Note: on my side I think that you should work for me for free, this product needs you, you should be part of the project. If you are not ready to work for me for free, please don't be upset if I don't work for you for free.
Please open a ticket. I'd like a copy of your file.
I would like to have MediaInfo translated into my language. Why don't you translate it into my language?
Because I don't speak your language! ;-)
If you have an hour, you can translate it (in the options dialog box), and send me the file (from ./plugins/ directory). This is not difficult; you only need some knowledge of English.
These are binary prefixes.
For example, 1 KiB is 1024 bytes, 1 KB is 1000 bytes.
The difference is not important with small files (only 2.4% for "K"), but becomes more and more important with bigger numbers (1 GB is only ~0.93 GiB, 1 TB is only 0.90 TiB!).
MediaInfo makes every attempt to be precise and does not tolerate errors of such magnitude when posting numbers even though Microsoft continues to confuse the issue in its operating system.
See the Binary prefix Wikipedia page for more information.
Anyway you can:
Yes, there is a space in "1 920 pixels" for example.
This is the international standard ("SI style").
This standard is the official one for 96% of the world population (All countries except U.S.A.). I currently don't plan to change this default display although you can:
You might get help on the forums.
MediaInfoGUI is governed by a BSD-style license.
MediaInfoCmd is governed by a BSD-style license.
I didn't spend much time coding it, due to less interest from users.
You can add a feature request.
MediaInfoDLL is governed by a BSD-style license.
Maybe the software doesn't support the latest version of the DLL.
Download the DLL package. There are some examples, in many different languages (standard C, standard C++, GCC, MinGW, Borland C++ Builder, Microsoft Visual C++, Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft C#, Microsoft J#)
There is also an SDK.
This is only possible with C++.
On the download page, there is package with:
