If you’re a Mac user with photos, videos, or audio files and care about such things as EXIF data, compression format, codecs, bit rates, aspect ratio, color space, frame rate, and all those little file details that make life worth living, then I have a free gift for you.
To be fair about this, I’m not actually the one giving the multimedia file inspector, though if it was mine to give I’d probably charge for it.
No, instead, a very clever Mac app developer decided Mac users were starved for file details and built the ultimate inspector.
It’s called iMediaHUD and all it does is examine a media file and display all the details about that file; whether it’s a photo, a video clip, or an audio clip.
The way iMediaHUD works is simple enough. Double click to open it and what you get is a Drop Media Here box floating in the middle of the Mac’s screen.
No preferences. No settings. Just ‘Drop Media Here.’
That seems easy enough, right? Now what?
iMediaHUD digs into the photo, video file, or audio file and displays what it finds. Here’s an example.
That’s it. iMediaHUD grabs all the pertinent and available file metadata and displays it in a popup window. Open as many files as you need, print the window, or export it as a text file.
iMediaHUD makes is drag and drop easy to find all the details you need about a photo, audio file, or video clip, and it’s almost instant. And free.
