MediaInfo Mac update released

Hi there, just a quick note to let you know that a new version of MediaInfo Mac ( has been released, not only it includes several bugfixes and improvements in the Cocoa arena, but also a new build of the MediaInfo engine which features the following improvements:

  • AVC: Count of reference frames.
  • AU: Comments.
  • Some global speed improvement.
  • Id3v2: Unsynchronized frames support (v2.3 & v2.4).
  • MKV: handling of files created for streaming.
  • MPEG-4: Handling of corrupted stream size info with some PCM streams.
  • DVD video: Hebrew patch (“iw” code is mapped to Hebrew).
  • MPEG-4: better handling of bitrate mode (VBR or CBR).
  • AVI: MediaInfo reads now the framerate value from the container rather than the stream value.
  • AC3: TrueHD detection.
  • MPEG-TS (or Bluray): VC-1, AC3+ and AC3 TrueHD detection.
  • AVC in MKV: all SEI userdata infos from x264/eavc in Writing library settings.
  • EVO: Better detection of duration.
  • Dirac: raw files parsing.
  • MPEG-TS: Dirac management.
  • MPEG-TS: DVB subtitles/Teletext management.
  • MPEG-4 Visual (DivX/XviD): writing library name was missing.
  • MPEG-Video: some DTS files with wrong extension were detected as MPEG-Video.
  • SWF: Compressed SWF files support is back.

If you are an actual user, just launch the application and use the auto update feature, or you can get the latest version by visiting the official MediaInfo Mac website.

As usual, feel free to leave any comment or suggestion in here.

Enjoy :)

  1. this is a fantastic utility for os x. i have been using it for a while now but have one question, and it is this:

    will support for reading information from any xiph/vorbis format files (flac, ogg etc…) ever be added?

    thanks in advance for any response,

    p.s. i ask because the mediainfo library this project revolves around does indeed support these formats.

  4. i was wrong about something, and it was this; mediainfo mac can indeed read information from xiph/vorbis files, but it does not show up in the “Open With” list on the contextual menu when ctrl/”right”-clicking on a xiph/vorbis files. the user must access the xiph/vorbis file from the “Open File…” dialog in mediainfo mac. it would certainly be a time saver if this application did show up in the “Open With” list though… you have noticed this and are apparently going to fix this. so a hefty kudos!
