There are somewhere between 1500 and 1600 items that can be looked up depending on whether It is an image, video, audio, menu, text, etc or combination of them. I think it would be pretty hard to come up with a GUI that lets you select any or all. That's a lot of drop boxes or check boxes. A truncated function GUI yes, a full function GUI...

BTW the fix for the mouse over failure is just open MediaInfo and set that feature off then Open and set on again to set it into the registry. It gets reset every new version.
