    Adware bundled with installer! Beware, I had to disable my entire anti-virus program to get it to install (a risk I was willing to take on this system for now).

    Thorough information, simple UI (launch the app, then drag your file onto the app's window), completely portable (no Windows installation required), and no adware. No threats detected by BitDefender. Just what I needed to determine that the larger of the two files of the same movie was actually the lower resolution and color depth. Go figure. But this app confirmed my impression that the picture was better on the copy that had the smaller filesize.
