  1. Is there a way to let ffmpeg show the used audio and video codec inside a (.mp4) video file?

    I assume there are commands like:

    ffmpeg -i myvideo.mp4 -showvideocodec

    and

    ffmpeg -i myvideo.mp4 -showaudiocodec

    How is the corresponding command syntax in detail?

  2. simply call:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i myvideo.mp4
    and ffmpeg should output something like:
    Code:
    Input #0, mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2, from 'h:\TestClips&Co\chapter.mp4':

    which is the same output you get when calling 'ffprobe myvideo.mp4'.

    If you need more details/control better use MediaInfos CLI version.

    Ps.: there's no syntax/call to get just audio/video/chapter/subtitle infos from a file using ffmpeg.
