Extremely poor detections and functionality.
Better use MediaInfo

Dec 30, 2009 Version: 2.2.3 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value: 2/10 Overall: 4/10

I was thoroughly unimpressed. The notes SPECIFICALLY mention MP4 files as being supported. That was SPECIFICALLY why I downloaded it. And all my MP4 files were SPECIFICALLY not listed. Also could not get the shell extension to work. Did I mention I was not impressed?

Dec 29, 2009 Version: 2.2.3 OS: Vista Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

Argh... now it's adware not freeware.
Added RelevantKnowledge - optional, not required to install and used VideoInspector.

Nov 15, 2008 Version: OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 6/10 Value: 8/10 Overall: 5/10

This software is so flawed, I don't know where to start! Codec names are the only things right, for the other properties such as bitrates and what not, try it and you'll see. Encode a few minutes of your favorite video in various format DVD, VCD, SVCD, XVID, PAL, NTSC, etc.. then check each file with both GSpot and VideoInspector, you won't believe it. The language setting has pretty flags :-)

Apr 27, 2008 Version: 1.12.0112 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 2/10 Value: 2/10 Overall: 2/10

displays incorrect audio info (kbps)

Dec 6, 2007 Version: 1.11.2 OS: Vista Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 5/10
