Just wondering if it is possible to extract media information from an .iso or .img file of a dvd. I'm working on a system to catalog my movies which I've ripped to HD,some of which are in .iso and .img format, and was hoping I might be able to harness the power of getid3 to retrieve media details from those files.

Thanks for a great utility!

Not without mounting them.

Then you are just analysing normal files.

I've finally gotten around to implementing this but I still can not figure out how to read the media information from a mounted DVD with getID3. I have access to the full VIDEO_TS folder including .VOBs, .IFOs, .BUPs, etc. Is there any way I can analyze one of these files to retrieve data like audio/video bitrate, audio codec, resolution, etc?
