Tool to determine metadata from online videos
on Jun 12, 2009 at 10:52:37 am

I wrote this little Flash app to help quickly read the metadata from online video.

Useful if you want to know what the duration, bitrate, and frame size of the video is. I've needed an app like this several times when designing players for pages, wondering exactly what codec an old video was in (especially since I had to rename AVC files to .flv to play nicely with FLVPlayback in early stages), etc.

Hope it's of some use to you :)

You've got to sniff the link to the actual video from youtube.

I use Charles for this - http://www.charlesproxy.com/ but other tools might work.

Once you have the actual link, then my metadata tool does work (well, it shows you the data in the youtube videos...) :)
