    So did you upload the wrong clip since both refer to a .mp4 file ?

    And since a .mp4 is a container format that Windoze would have you believe does not exist then bite the bullet and use a different program which you already know about.

  3. You need a Shell Extension that provides properties for mp4 files. General info about shell extensions:

    I my Win7 I can see certain properties for mp4 such as run time and resolution in the details tab from Windows Explorer >> Properties.

    I still prefer mediainfo since it gives a whole lot more info.

    You installed a shell extension that provided that information to Windows Explorere so it could display it.

    It looks like Icaros is supposed to supply that for Explorer. Is mp4 in its list of file types?

    I'm not sure an extension is even necessary. My Windows 8.1 can display the resolution in details view, you just have to enable
    the right columns.

    Windows 8 and 10 have built in support for MP4. Windows 7 and earlier do not.
