AVI2Clipboard is a small freeware utility that saves information from AVI videos to the clipboard. This is handy if you want to post AVI information on websites, forums or make a database of your video collection. AVI2Clipboard adds an entry to your Explorer context menu, which will only show when you right-click on a file with an .avi extension.

Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog

11-06-2006 (Version 2.18)
- Fixed 2GB video size limit.
- Fixed wrong file size output when batch saving.

05-06-2006 (Version 2.17)
- Added better truncated detection. If an AVI video is truncated, then it will tell you how much of the video is missing.
- Removed codecs from codec database. It contained many codecs that are never used by most people, so it's pointless to include them in the database.
- Fixed little bug where AVI2Clipboard would continue writing information to text files in the background if Batch Saving was aborted.

14-05-2006 (Version 2.15)
- Modified and deleted code. Some code was added multiple times for different purposes, which was eventually unnecessary and made the dll bigger than it should have been.
- Added file identification. If the file is not an AVI video, but actually another video type renamed to AVI, then AVI2Clipboard will tell you which video type it really is (.asf, .mkv, .mov, .mpg, .ogm, .rm, .swf, .vob, .wmv).
- Codec database is now internal and not a text file anymore that gets extracted every time you use AVI2Clipboard. The reason for this is that some virus scanners (like McAfee) report the extraction of the text file as a secret/malicious script.
- Fixed problem where AVI2Clipboard would freeze during "Batch Saving" if there was an error while parsing an AVI header.
- Fixed little stupid mistake where the AVI2Clipboard menu option would not show up in the Explorer context menu if the AVI extension (file name) contained capitals.
- AVI2Clipboard can now show AVI tags as well when viewing the information (if available), like Copyright, Genre and Comments.
- Added Packed Bitstream detection.
- Added TwoCC (hex) for audio codecs.
- Added Constant Bitrate (CBR) and Variable Bitrate (VBR) detection.
- Updated codec database (417 video and 166 audio codecs).

24-03-2006 (Version 2.00)
- Completely re-written.
- Changed menu. All options are now shown in a sub-menu, to prevent having a huge context menu when right-clicking on an AVI video.
- Added option to view AVI information.
- Added options to batch save the AVI information to a single text file or to separate text files.
- Solved registry problem where AVI2Clipboard would not work properly if certain video/audio players were installed.

11-01-2006 (Version 1.24)
- Added Quality Factor.

04-01-2006 (Version 1.17)
- Removed ASCii.
- Added file sizes in Bytes and KB.
- Added Setup menu.
- Added Template support.

30-12-2005 (Version 1.00)
- First Release.

RedDwarfer, that "bug" was fixed more than 6 months ago. There was one required file that was not included in the installer, because according to Microsoft it should automatically be installed with Windows. Apparently that file is not always automatically installed with Windows, so it was added to the installer months ago. The only site hosting the updated installer was the main site, but it's down and probably won't come back. The installer hosted here is 1,29MB, while the updated one is 1,70MB. I'll see if I can get a direct download for the updated installer and submit it here.

Btw, this tool does NOT work on Vista.

A nice tool when it works. I have two PC's and it works correctly on one but not on the other. On the 2nd PC it will not show any windows such as file information or settings. It does work with the clipboard. It could be a problem with the way windows are setup/opened that is causing the problem on some setups as it is getting the information - it can be pasted from the clipboard. If the bugs could be resolved it would be a very good utility.

This is a very nice little tool, and I find it much easier to use than GSpot.

One bug I've noticed is that when batch-saving to .txt files, the filesizes for all the .avi's are diplayed as the same value.

It would also be nice to be able to 'View avi Info' for more than one file at a time.

Overall an excellent little appy!

This is a very nice tool.

I've been using it for about two weeks now and what I like about it, is that it works in a "send to.." way. You only have to right-click on the AVI you want to get the information from.

I've noticed on a very few occasions where a video had some corruption or wasn't splitted correctly, some of the information shown was not correct, but that's not a real big deal.

It would've been nice if it showed information like qpel and gmc as well, but when it comes to ease of use or clarity of the information shown, it's one of the best codec finders I've used.

Blasts the complete competition.
Great tool!
