 ''​Video-meta''​ is a Perl script by Mike Schilli that displays attributes of a video file, helpful in "video forensics",​ when you need to know what codec and frame rate a video was shot in, quickly and easily. ''​Video-meta''​ invokes the ''​Video::​FrameGrab''​ module, which in turn invokes **mplayer**. ​ ''​Video-meta''​ is a Perl script by Mike Schilli that displays attributes of a video file, helpful in "video forensics",​ when you need to know what codec and frame rate a video was shot in, quickly and easily.

-Video-meta achieves the same results as the ''​mediainfo''​ tools (''​mediainfo''​ and **mediainfo-gui''​), which are included in the default Slackermedia queue file, so strictly speaking this is doubling up on functionality. You may find it useful, however, since it gives //less// information than other tools, in an easy-to-read format, and tends to favour the most useful and common information rather than every last detail that 90% of the time you will not need.+Video-meta achieves the same results as the ''​mediainfo''​ tools (''​mediainfo''​ and **mediainfo-gui**), which are included in the default Slackermedia queue file, so strictly speaking this is doubling up on functionality.
