"MediaInfo has been the ideal tool; clearly the fastest, and by far, the simplest, tool to integrate into our wide scale content verification platform. With the broad demux and parsing support for containers and codecs, MediaInfo’s integration satisfies the needs of our customers in the broadcast, post-production, authoring, archive and distribution industries. Jerome’s help has been invaluable in bringing up new features. We are always pleased to support great open source software like MediaInfo."

"At Extreme Reach we process many thousands of media files daily as we get Video and TV ads to whatever screen or device they are meant to play on. MediaInfo is our tool of choice for file analysis and validation. In addition to using the basic analysis function, we find the advanced 'deep-dive' feature to be invaluable in helping identify why a system may have an issue with a particular file or format. We appreciate the hard work by Jerome and everybody else associated with the MediaInfo project and are proud to support their continued efforts."

"MediaInfo is invaluable in helping metachannels determine video encoding information. The well-thought out library allowed us to integrating into our infrastructure with a minimum of code, and the fact that it works on OSX as well as Linux allows us to have the full feature set in our development boxes as well as the servers. And it's always nice to have non-coders be able to use the GUI version and be able to predict what information the server will output for a specific URL. Great job, Jerome!"

— David Martinez, Senior Software Engineer, Tech Lead,

"The broadcast industry is on a fast migration path from tape delivery of contribution material to file delivery. Our playout servers are fairly rigid about file format compatibility and we used to spend many hours attempting to discern file characteristics when troubleshooting client contribution. We need to be able to identify codecs, bitrate info, frame rates, scan rates and more. Prior to discovering this program we had no hardware/software solution for assisting our clients in providing usable content."

"An HD camera and edit system is so inexpensive these days that people who know nothing about video production can become a Video Producer.
