Windows 7: Make details of FLV files show in windows explorer?

Make details of FLV files show in windows explorer?

Is there any way to make the details of a FLV file, especially resolution and runtime, show up in the details view of Windows explorer? I have the Shark007 codec pack, and can see thumbnails just fine, but no information about the FLV files, other than their file size, shows up in the details view, or the file properties.

I need to clean out some of my older saved videos, rather than buy a new hard drive, and I would like to start by getting rid of the low res and short runtime stuff.

Thanks!

To the best of my knowledge a property handler does not exist for FLV files.

If at some point you used the Filetypes Association button on the Help TAB of the Shark007 Settings Application, you can enable the Preview Pane of Windows Explorer for quick access to view the video's without a player. You may find this helpful.

To enable the preview pane, In the upper right next to the blue circle with a question mark, this is a button to enable/disable the preview pane.

Wow, to have the guy tell who made my favorite codec pack tell me I am SOL does not fill me with confidence! Thank you for the reply!

I have done a lot of searching, and I think this is not going to happen like how I want. I found this program MediaInfo that will display the info I need on mouseover, or even batch analyse a folder and export the info, but there doesn't appear to be any way to get windows explorer to let me view and sort by that data. I just need a quick way to kill all of my low res and and short duration files without having to go through them one by one.

In Windows Explorer, choose to sort the files by size.
delete the small files.

If only it were that easy. The problem is, I want to delete any file under x resolution, or under x duration. There may be a file with a file size that is fairly large, but it could be a really long file with a really crappy resolution, and I want it gone. Alternately, a fairly small file could be a decent res, and still of a runtime I want to keep.

My current plan is, using MediaInfo, I have exported a CSV with info about all the files. Using LibreOffice, I am sorting the list, then deleting the entries for the acceptable videos. With the remaining list, I should just have to find a script that will take the list, and delete all the files whose names are listed therein.

Done! Big thanks to skwire for this program Skwire Empire - Deletist
It just let me copy from my list in LibreOffice, and paste into that program. It then bulk deleted everything.

Thanks to you as well Shark007, I love your codec pack!
