Reading camera settings off a video file

Is it possible to read camera settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, perhaps focus) off a video file shot with a DSLR?

From the file itself you can only read the framesize, PAR and shutterspeed. All other information can only be read from the .THM files.

How do you read the .THM files?

Do a Google search for EXIF Viewer

Thank you, but I just realized that Nikon D800 has no .THM files. The folder on the CIF card only has .MOV files.

Yes, for instance the Canon camera produces .THM files for each video clip that, along with the thumbnail image, includes many of the camera settings

One other thing occurred to me...if you are using your camera as a USB card reader instead of taking the card out fo the camera and using an external card reader I've heard from other posters here on this forum that you may not see the additional files the camera produces.

Otherwise there are many programs that can display EXIF data...the Mac's built-in Preview application is one for instance.
