I'd like to open up a WMV on a Mac to look at the bitrate details via a graph.

Much thanks!

I so wish there was an equivalent to WMSnoop on the Mac. There are things to analyze files but the graph is truly priceless.

The best I can suggest is Bootcamp your Mac or get Parallels or Fusion. I use Bootcamp as well as Parallels. Alas, there are some tools that only exist on Windows. Some compression company has got to realize there's money to be made with a Mac media graph analysis tool. I've mentioned this to Telestream. Episode will actually do something sort of like that with its own encoded files right after completing an encode but that doesn't help when you want to look at a file you've been given or created some time ago.

Thanks for jumping in Craig. I found this http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/MacDVDBitrateParanoia.shtml but alas it only does TS_Folders.

Cheers

There are also some high priced solutions that are well over $1000. Even those don't seem to do WMV on Mac.

Agreed -- I would buy this on the spot.
