Understanding the Video Properties Dialog Box

You can instantly find information on any video file by right-clicking its icon and selecting Properties from the shortcut menu. The Properties dialog box includes three tabs: General, Details, and Preview. The General tab contains information such as file size and dates.

You find useful information in the Details sheet, as shown in Figure 19.1. In addition to the runtime of the video clip, the Details sheet contains information on the audio and video encoding schemes used to create the file—potentially very useful information if you're trying to get optimal performance. The Video format section includes helpful data on the pixel resolution of the captured video, as well as the frame rate and data rate.
