Windows 7: Video file details?

Video file details?

Has anyone noticed if you rightclick on a video file (.avi) and choose properties, you can no longer tell if it's encoded XviD or DivX or Div3 or 4. When we run XP the details show the encoding version... Any way to fix this?

I just checked and it appears you are correct. I never noticed before though, because I always use Virtual Dub or one of the offsprings (AC3 version, MPEG-2, Nandub, MP3 version, Mod version) to do that.

You can manually check the extended Metadata info using exiftool

Is located in the syetem32 directory unless your using 64bit and the lack of a 64bit executable might explain why you can no longer see all the extended properties

"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\exiftool.exe pathtoVideo"

What do you mean that would explain? You are saying because I use a x86 version of windows 7 I don't get to see all the details? Older versions of windows we could see all the info..... You're saying if I was using 64bit I'd see more details?

No, Im not saying either of those things... What I was trying to say was that your installation is missing system files related to extended file properties, so without these files you can kinda expect things to not work properly

I've noticed that with some downloaded codecs the info becomes available but i can't think which ones.

Did you copy these video files from XP?

I can't sort by File Types. What happened to File Details?
When I do a search on how to sort, I get a Tutorial that tells me to open the "View" Menu item. However, as you can see from the attached, I don't have a VIEW menu on my Folder. I would like to sort these by file type so that I can save them to a CD. What am I doing wrong here?:(
