    Hi there,

    I'm working successful with Mediainfo on Ubuntu 12.04.
    I seem to get all the data I want from media files except one: %Video_EncodingSettings%
    According to the manual, following should work:
    mediainfo "--Inform=Video;Video encode settings are: %EncodingSettings%" sample.mpg

    But it doesn't. Bug in mediainfo, or something else
    The video_encodesettings are displayed via:
    mediainfo sample.mpg

    But than I get a lot of extra data, which I don't want.

    There is no "EncodingSettings" in MediaInfo. Try "Format_Settings".
    The list of field names to use with command line can be seen with "mediainfo --Language=raw sample.mpg"

    Thanks for the info. With the option "Format_Settings" 'Encoding settings' is printed. My issue is that with mpeg4 files encoded in MBAFF (interlaced) the scan order bff/tff not is provided but contained in the field '%EncodingSessiongs%. So I think mediainfo should provide the scanorder, or make the option filed directly accessible

    MBAFF (interlaced)

    MBAFF is not interlaced. It is either interlaced of progressive, per macroblock.

    or make the option filed directly accessible

    It is available with "%ScanType%".

    Note: I made an error in my previous message (I'll edit it), use "mediainfo --Language=raw" in order to have the field names to use.

    Dear Jerome,

    Thx very much, so I needed %Encoded_Library_Settings% and that worked :)
