Windows 7: Can i add video bitrate to windows explorer

Can i add video bitrate to windows explorer

I know i can add audio bitrate but i'm looking to add video bitrate to my windows explorer?

I have a small bit of freeware called "PlayTime" that will scan a folder and give me video bitrate but the problem with that app is i cannot highlight the files and move them, so anyone know of any mods that will allow me to add video bitrate to the windows explorer?

  • Go to Windows Explorer >Libraries and click on the video library.
  • When open click on View in the folder menu.
  • Near the bottom you should see Choose Details... click on that.
  • Scroll down a bit until you see Bit Depth and Bit Rate, click on both, then OK.
  • The change should happen immediately, if not try refreshing the view, click on the two blue swirling arrows at the end of the address bar.
There have been instances where this change only affects the folder you just changed and not the sub-folders if so, you may want to look into this: Folder View - Apply to Folders
