Command to get avi summary?

  1. Is there a Linux command to get a summary of the vital statistics of an AVI
    file: Codec, bitrate, resolution, etc?

    The mplayer source package includes midentify found in the TOOLS
    subdirectory, also avinfo found at shounen.ru/soft/avinfo/desc_en.shtml

  7. Transcode comes with 2 programs:

    tcprobe, tcscan and tcinfo supplying you with all the information
    one might want.

  8. avinfo was right on the money, and compiled without hassle.

    Thanks, Walt.

  9. It's hard to catch you in an error, so I was hoping to get a couple of
    extra points :)
