Hi All,

Recently someone had attempted to combine videos taken with a camera into one clip using avidemux. Unfortunately, the clip avidemux rendered did not produce sound. I wondered what audio format the camera generated and whether it might be necessary to convert that to some other format.

There's probably some command I could have ffmpeg run to determine the current audio format. But I'm not really good at remembering command-line arguments. Under XP I would had used gspot to obtain such information; and gspot will run under Wine. Since not everyone want to run wine, I thought MediaInfo might be useful.

This page provides links to various packages including ones for debian, ubuntu, and AppImage. Follow the Slackware link for instructions.http://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download I followed the AppImage link and downloaded both 32 & 64 bit versions. After setting its permissions I clicked the AppImage while in Xenialpup64 and used it to determine a great deal of information about a clip I had downloaded.

p.s. Custom search of the Forum shows builds several years old and that riedzig mentioned the MediaInfo.AppImage last year.

Try to remember ffprobe filename.

Probably impossible. Sad But what I probably will remember, even longer than that there is a MediaInfo application, is the phrase "Video Information Decoder" or even just "Video Information". https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=015995643981050743583%3Aabvzbibgzxo&q=#gsc.tab=0 will locate this thread, and your very useful 'one-liner'. Thanks for that. Very Happy
