  1. Oh, development discontinued? What a pity.

    Wouldn’t there be a mini-new-release possible for two annoying and remaining drawbacks?

    1) The “Send Feedback” doesn’t work (“Error contacting server…”)
    and prevents from contacting you…
    (If I were you I woudl also a “Contact” form in your website or blog, otherwise you’ll be really hard to contact…)

    2) A really usefull improvment would be to ERASE the whole window from previous info when processing a new file. (When the new file format is not well handled by MediaInfo -Yes sometimes it happens ;-)- then unfortunately, the new name is written at the bottom of the window, but all the informations written are the one from the previous file…

    Hoping those two little things could be solved,
    and congratulations for this software.

  2. Hi there Yann, to be honest i wasn’t aware of problem #2 and i wasn’t able to reproduce it here.
    In any case, MediaInfo Mac is discontinued as was stated on this post, so no new versions or bugfixes should be expected.
    Good news are that im working on a totally new application that will replace MediaInfo Mac which will be released soon.
    Cheers, Diego.

  4. Ah, a pity about the demise of Tiger support. I hoped to at least do a final update as directed in the updater and downloaded mediainfo_mac_0.7.17.1.dmg but the application says it cannot run under my version of OSX (10.4.11)???

  5. Limmie, as stated in this post, just go to http://mediainfo.massanti.com/releases/ and get the last release (0.7.17.3), it will work in Tiger without any problem.
    Cheers!, Diego.

  6. Hi Diego,

    Was wondering if you could help me with something……….

    Am looking for examples/code of using the MediaInfo library within an Obj-C/Cocoa project. Appreciate you have done this with your now discontinued product. Any chance you could send me some information on how you integrated and called the dylib from within Xcode?

    Realise this is a big ask, but your help would be welcomed. My mail is jeffersonhumber [at] me.com

    Thanks, Jeff

  7. @Jefferson Humber: I didn’t do anything special, I’m calling a dynamic library in the standard way, sorry if you were expecting something spectacular here but no.
    Compiling the library to support all variants of OSX and all platforms is a hard task though and nothing that I can explain in a blog post, but basically I’m doing several parallel builds and then i create a fat binary library with lipo for all the archs and frameworks that I want. There is plenty of documentation and examples about this in the ADC site and/or xCode documentation and/or C books.

    On top of that I’m discontinuing MediaInfo Mac in the way we know it, but I’m rewriting a much better product with more features, i guess i should have explained it better on the original post.

    @everybody else: i have fixed the Snow Leopard bug in MediaInfo Mac, you can get the latest release here: http://mediainfo.massanti.com/releases/

    Tiger compatibility has been dropped forever starting with this release. Cheers!
