For audio files, MediaInfo can display information about the bitrate, sample rate, and channel layout. Additionally, MediaInfo can display information about subtitles and other metadata associated with the file.

MediaInfo's interface is clean and easy to use, with the ability to customize the display of information to suit your needs. The tool also includes a command-line interface, making it easy to incorporate MediaInfo into automated workflows or batch processes.

Comes bundled with Adware-OpenCandy.dll, which is left behind in temp folder after installation, which fortunately malwarebytes picked up and quarantined.

Adware:Win32/OpenCandy is an adware program that may be bundled with certain third-party software installation programs. Some versions of this program may send user-specific information, including a unique machine code, operating system information, locale (country), and certain other information to a remote server without obtaining adequate user consent.

There should be criminal consequences for both bundling, and distributing, spyware like this!

I like it, but this version makes Windows Explorer crash when I over mouse cursor over mp4 files for tooltip (only with mp4).
