Isn't GSpot open source? If so, you can contribute to that and save yourself a lot of duplicate work.

http://mediainfo.sf.net . Its opensource and works well ....

But it appears to me that Kyle's app is already at the same level regarding its matroska support, and it has just started. Lets see how it develops ....

well you can have a look at the mpeg4ip and gpac project on sourceforge for example

but there should be many other sources available too on the net i guess as mp4 is the official container of the mpeg-4 standard

This is a great idea Kyle_Katarn,

I was thinking of starting a discussion about this very subject.

As others have mentioned, there are plenty of individual tools out there, (such as Gpot, AVIcheck, Media Info, MP4UI, RealMedia 'ShellExt' etc) but not one tool that does the lot!

Now....

What we could do with in the future is an interface that will allow the user to 'extract' individual streams and import others - a bit like MP4UI can

Thanks for this

Cheers

I'll check if this is easily implementable.

First i'll try to add support for new formats (QT,RM,WMV....)

I hope that includes MP4 too... This would be a 'god send' for Mpeg4 fans like Mr bond and myself

Cheers

bond knows far more about this sort of thing than me I'm afraid!

One thing that might be useful to Mpeg4 (DivX, XviD, 3viX etc) .avi encoding fans, would be to include B-frame (B-VOP), GMC (S-VOP) and Qpel detection.

Personally, I've only found one tool that can do this and that's Sigma's AVIcheck .

Cheers

for the real mpeg-4 systems (mp4 and more) specs you can search for ISO 14496-1

for "shorter" infos have a look at the mpeg4ip project (there are also docs in the cvs) or the gpac project, both offer mp4 libraries under the gpl...
