Listing Multimedia Properties


I would like to list multimedia file properties, i.e. aspect ratio, height, width and bitrates in Thunar or other file listing program, or an app that can do that.

In Thunar you can View -> Configure columns, so can I add my own columns?

Or is there another file manager that can do this, or an app?

I personally use mediainfo-gui from the Ubuntu 18.04 repos, setting it in my case as a right-click option in Caja using FileManager Actions.

In addition to my previous answer, XnViewMP as a media browser shows lots of meta info for media files.

Thanks for that, could you explain more on Caja and FileManager please?

Caja is the default file manager in MATE.

FileManager Actions superseded the Caja Actions package and can be installed (filemanager-actions and filemanager-actions-caja-extension packages) from ppa:daniel-marynicz/filemanager-actions. It allows you to add customised right-click actions to Caja (and Nemo/Nautilus with the relevant extension packages).

However, given you are running Thunar, perhaps XnViewMP would be a better bet in retrospect. It provides more in-depth metadata than MediaInfo.

Ranger can be set up to display these properties in its right pane, every time you select a media file.

If you just want an app, mediainfo works nicely.

XnView is good, I like the preview pane, but too much detail, I really just want a filemanager view like Thunar with four additional columns, Aspect ratio, HxW and Bitrates Video and Audio.

Thanks folks
