@ Dannieboiz,

The easiest way I've found is, if you have the proper codec, open the file in WMP and do a File > Properties. The resolution will be listed in the popup.

Ant movie catalog. Drag the file in and get the name resolution and audio format. You can also then look it up at imdb and print out lists and such. But most importantly really easy to get the resolution and audio information.

AMC looks cool but I can't get it to work. When I drop the movie in nothing happens.

Are you droping in the actual file or the folder? I tried dropping in folders with no success you have to drop in the file. Oh and change preferences to import file name as title.

The best what I like is GSpot. Newer version is 2.5 but I prefer 2.2.
Tells you codecs the video can use or if not any suitable, resolutions as well as audio codes.

Gspot is a great tool if you are having any issue getting a video to play on a PC thta may having conflicting CODECS.

I figured it out. Got some info but not all of the info. It didn't really pick up much info when I tried to get the info from the web.

What about VOB and DVD files? I usually rip my DVD into Video_TS folder with all the content. Do I drop the entire content of the folder in there?

Since thats just the actual DVD I'd just input it yourself. The program has alot more info then you would think. Go to print and there are a whole bunch of formats you can use to print out info. I made a custom one with a dvd cover, video res, size, audio type ect. Then it prints it out in a nice list for me.
