    mkv metadata
    Hello, I'm pretty new to osx and i've having the hardest time finding an easy way to view mkv metadata. In windows it was as simple as right clicking and selecting properties. Is there a simple way in osx? Get info doesn't seem to provide the same information.

    ~Thanks

    Specs:
    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    Highlight the MKV, and then go to the file menu and select get info (or hold down command and "i").

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The OP said, quote, "Get info doesn't seem to provide the same information."

    He also didn't mention exactly what he's specifically looking for in terms of information, but I find that leaving the Inspector window open in QuickTime player or VLC gives me a lot of info on video files I play.

    Oops, missed that bit. Sorry.
    Well then yes, playing in VLC and then using get info on VLC brings up all info.
