MediaInfo

I came across this open source app that can pull media information from media files. It appears to handle both audio & video. I've copy from their website some of the information that it gets from files, and some of the media files the app supports:

What information can I get from MediaInfo?

* General: title, author, director, album, track number, date, duration...
* Video: codec, aspect, fps, bitrate...
* Audio: codec, sample rate, channels, language, bitrate...
* Text: language of subtitle
* Chapters: number of chapters, list of chapters

What format (container) does MediaInfo support?

* Video: MKV, OGM, AVI, DivX, WMV, QuickTime, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DVD (VOB)...
(Codecs: DivX, XviD, MSMPEG4, ASP, H.264, AVC...)
* Audio: OGG, MP3, WAV, RA, AC3, DTS, AAC, M4A, AU, AIFF...
* Subtitles: SRT, SSA, ASS, SAMI...

What can I do with it?
* Read many video and audio file formats
* Different methods of viewing information (text, sheet, tree, HTML...)
* You can customise these views
* Exporting information as text, CSV, HTML...
* Graphical Interface, or Command Line, or DLL
* Integration with MS-Windows shell (drag 'n' drop, and Context menu)(the impression I got was this could be turned off)
* Internationalisation: any language display on any version of your Operating System
* Localisation capability (but volunteers needed)

The website for the app itself is is http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en

I've also found the instructions to make it portable http://portablefreeware.com/?id=884

It would be great to have a tool like this packaged in paf format.
