Nice, simple program used to view detailed codec, bitrate, and other useful information about audio and video files. The Linux version works great in Mint and Lubuntu.

Same here. detected malware by AVG.

:-( "MediaInfo" app has adWare in the installer ! (v0.7.76)
It installed “Active Discount” and the ridiculous sounding
"open Photoshop" in the Add/Remove programs and Chrome extensions

IF you install the software from the developers homepage.

use this site instead and download the portableApp version

I cleaned my system with AdwCleaner and herdprotect
