Really Great


Does exactly what I need it to. I only with that you could have multiple working windows open displaying different individual file information to compare.

Very useful, but #1 annoyance is multiple file handling.


This is definitely a very useful tool for anyone editing/creating/transcoding video. However, it has issues with multiple files.
1) As another reviewer stated, you can't compare 2 files side-by-side.
2) It doesn't retain any file history. After you've dropped 2 or more files on the app, it *looks* like you can pull-down a history list and jump to any recent file. However, the pull-down list never contains anything more than the current file. This should be an easy fix I hope they take care of soon.

Good tool for checking video properties, only one thing bugs me...


Love this app and use it more and more everyday, at work and at home, highly suggest anyone involved in Video Editing Streaming Transcoding or simply viewing/reviewing Video, only thing I would change is to allow multiple sessions open at a time so I can compare multiple files side by side but still a great way to see what is really there without opening a bulky NLE or editing app. Keep up the great work and please consider my suggestion, thx!!!
