    Video for Windows, DirectShow, FourCC codes, bitrate, framerate, aspect
    ratio, codecs, filters, compression ratio, AVI, MOV, MPEG1 MPEG2 etc etc
    etc. Is there a utility out there that can read ANY video/movie file and
    obtain all the properties. MovieID comes close but it complains if the file
    is bigger than 2GB and it does not appear to handle AVI's using DirectShow

    I wrote my own, but there are several out there.
    Why would you need DirectShow to get information from an AVI file?
    It's contained right in its header.

    As far as I know, GSpot only handles AVI files.
