File Viewer Plus reports media information in the left information panel, such as the codecs used, frame size, creation time, and duration. Any available media information the program finds is reported in this section.

Converting Video Files

You can convert any video file to MPEG-4 video (.MP4 file extension). You can also isolate just the audio track and export it to an MPEG-4 audio file (.M4A file extension) or MP3 file. Click the Save As... button in the toolbar to open the video conversion window.

Video Conversion Options

You can change the save directory by clicking the "..." button to the right of the "Save to" field. Converted videos will automatically be saved to this directory. Note that the higher the target quality and frame size, the larger the file size will be. Therefore, you'll have to determine the best tradeoff for your needs. Conversions perform quickly, so you can test conversions under multiple conditions. When you've chosen an option, click the Convert button to begin converting your video.

To batch convert video files, please refer to the section on batch conversion.
