Most Mac users don’t need to worry much about such metadata but serious users know the value of extended information and detail. The way to get the most detail is from free apps– FFmpeg and iMediaHUD.
More Detail Than You Need
Instead of relying upon the limited metadata inspector in most Mac media apps, iMediaHUD gathers just about every detail that can be gathered from a file.
Simply drag an audio or video file to iMediaHUD, and it displays a pop up window of all the files’ metadata.
Even better, iMediaHUD doesn’t do the dirty deed one window at a time. Open as many windows as you need to compare details between multiple files.
Here’s how to get started. Drag and drop a media file onto iMediaHUD (the app icon floats on top of the screen).
iMediaHUD displays details about each file in a pop up window.
iMediaHUD pulls data from audio files, video files, and some data from photos.
It also displays information from multiple media files. Drag and drop a folder of media files onto the iMediaHUD app and the pop up window displays all the relevant details.
If you need metadata and need it quickly, nothing is better than iMediaHUD. All the basic information is displayed with a drag and drop, but extended data may also be available in many files.
File details can be compared side-by-side, exported as a text file, or printed.
Not bad for free, huh? Or, you could use another Free, Easy, Cheap Way To Squeeze Data From Files.
