Do you know of a media manager that shows video stream info in a list for each file?

Do you know of a media manager (or any program) that will show me a pretty list of my video files along with the stream details (like video codec, audio codec, resolution, etc.)?

I'm mostly working with home movies and misc. stuff, so scraping movie/tv show info isn't necessary.

If you use a Mac, ViMediaManager does so. Some stream information in shown in the media list, more in the main display when you select a media item. The most detail is shown when you open the Edit Metadata window.

ViMM scans/probes the file for the codec/stream info when it edits/writes the NFO file. You can do that in a batch just by telling it to fetch metadata.

G-Spot can identify this information but not for a group of files.
