Posting "MediaInfo" data.

Since joining this forum, I have frequently seen posts requesting information about video files that is obtained by using a "free" program called "MediaInfo" that is available here. When this program is used, the data it provides can be displayed in a number of formats. For posting to this forum, I find the "HTML" format to be the easiest and most useable. It is simply a matter of cut and paste after choosing the "HTML" display. Right-click on the display, choose "Select All" and then "Copy". Them, right-click on the posting and paste. This results in data that is easily read, easily copied, easily searched, easily ....

The MediaInfo for the Nero Flower Meadow 16:9 NTSC sample video is as follows:

    A recent update to MediaInfo has messed up the HTML pasted data; it comes out with many duplicates and missing line feeds. Select TEXT format instead; it pastes into the forum, but some formatting is lost.
