Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
OpenCandy is used by the Windows GUI installer for recommending other software you may find valuable during the installation .
If you don't have an OpenCandy screen during the install, or if you don't click on "Yes, Install" (this is NOT the default action) in this screen, nothing is done.
If even with these explanations you don't want OpenCandy stuff, you can:
More information is available at the Powered by OpenCandy page.
Yes, it tries (if "Check for newest version" is checked).
When this checkbox is checked, MediaInfo connects to mediaarea.eu website too for anonymous statistics. (how often MediaInfo is used, which OS/Language/Country is the most used...)
If you don't want to autorize anonymous statistics, uncheck the "Check for newest version" checkbox.
It depends on what you require:
After this, you must select your operating system:
And your platform:
Always the latest version, except if:
Because I don't have specifications for it!
If you have documentation about the format, please contact me.
Please open a ticket. I'd like a copy of your file.
I would like to have MediaInfo translated into my language. Why don't you translate it into my language?
Because I don't speak your language! ;-)
If you have an hour, you can translate it (in the options dialog box), and send me the file (from ./plugins/ directory). This is not difficult; you only need some knowledge of English.
These are binary prefixes.
For example, 1 KiB is 1024 bytes, 1 KB is 1000 bytes.
The difference is not important with small files (only 2.4% for "K"), but becomes more and more important with bigger numbers (1 GB is only ~0.93 GiB, 1 TB is only 0.90 TiB!).
MediaInfo makes every attempt to be precise and does not tolerate errors of such magnitude when posting numbers even though Microsoft continues to confuse the issue in its operating system.
See the Binary prefix Wikipedia page for more information.
Anyway you can:
Yes, there is a space in "1 920 pixels" for example.

You might get help on the forums.
MediaInfoGUI licence is GPL.
The source code can be downloaded here.
You need Borland C++ 6 to compile it.
There is a help file to assist in compiling dependencies.
VCL (the graphical library of Borland) is not portable (this is the only one), so I can't adapt the GUI for Linux.
If you know how to program with wxWidgets (a standard graphical library), and are interested in adapting MediaInfo to wxWidgets, then I am interested. Please contact me!
MediaInfoCmd licence is GPL.
I didn't spend much time coding it, due to less interest from users.
You can add a feature request.
MediaInfoDLL licence is LGPL.
Maybe the software doesn't support the latest version of the DLL.
Download the DLL package. There are some examples, in many different languages (standard C, standard C++, GCC, MinGW, Borland C++ Builder, Microsoft Visual C++, Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft C#, Microsoft J#)
There is also an SDK.
This is only possible with C++.
On the download page, there is package with:
