One question I recieve weekly from producers is, “Can you just make a video deliverable like the other one?” – they continue on showing you an example that worked for the same client in the past.
There are lots of tools out there that can show you basic codec and frame rate information, but I have found MediaInfo Mac (now called Media Inspector on the app store) a life saver. This is FAR more accurate than using command + i in quicktime player, or even looking at details in VLC or Mpeg Streamclip. Whenever I need to know how somebody encoded a particular video I use MediaInfo Mac.
The new version that Diego Massanti is selling on the app store only costs $3, but I have found the older version also linked above to be awesome (and its free). Give it a shot next time you get that question from a client or producer.
