If you’ve been around a Mac for longer than a month then you’re familiar with Command-I. Or, Right-Click, Get Info. When you select a file in the Finder and select Get Info (or, Command-I) you get a pop up window with some very basic file information. Bah humbug.
Real men use a media file inspector to get real info from files.
Get Real Media Info With A Click
iMediaHUD is the Free App Of The Week for Mac users who need more details about their multimedia files than you get with Get Info.
With most files on your Mac, about all the Get Info you need is file name, location, maybe the creation and modified dates, perhaps the extension or label.
In a pinch, you might need information on Sharing and Permissions.
When it comes to multimedia files– audio, video, even photographs– there’s a lot more information to decipher, and that information, usually hidden, is often more valuable.
That’s where iMediaHUD stomps Get Info into the dark ages and file meta data. It starts with a simple drag and drop motion onto the floating iMediaHUD icon.
Drag files or folders then drop. iMediaHUD delivers the information in an abundance.
How’s this for detailed information on a simple photograph?
The iMediaHUD app icon floats on your Mac’s screen, so it’s easily accessible.
Here’s detail from a video file.
What’s not to like? Other than information overkill.
I’ve never used a simpler Mac app that delivered so much information about multimedia files so quickly.
That’s the beauty of iMediaHUD. Information by the acre. There are no preferences to dig into.
Simply grab a multimedia file (or folders of files) and drop them onto the iMediaHUD floating icon. The pop up window delivers all the detailed information in a Basic list.
Need more? Click the Basic Info button to reveal an Advanced Info selection. That gives you even more detail; so much so that you’ll likely have to scroll to get it all.
Even better, all that data can be printed or exported with a click. Not bad for free, huh?
