[Solved] Search for MP4 files with AAC codec

Post by w64bit » Thu Dec 09, 2021 2:08 pm

Is there any way to search for MP4 files having AAC audio?

In Everything 1.5, there is a
Property: Video -> Audio Format
.

(I've not looked at it, but enable it, throw some mp4's to it & see what it returns?)

I checked some MP4 with MediaInfo and for AAC audio format the codec ID is something like mp4a-40-2.
In Everything is displayed mp4a.
Problem solved.
Thank you very much.

Video -> Audio Format will display "mp4a" instead of "aac".
Video -> Video Format will display "avc1" instead of "h264".

I do not yet know definitively if these are a 1-to-1 name substitutes, or if either name is an inclusive set of other formats.

From ffprobe la ffmpeg:
Stream #0:0(und): Video: h264 (High) (avc1 / 0x31637661), ...
Stream #0:1(eng): Audio: aac (LC) (mp4a / 0x6134706D), ...
(we posted our comments at the same time)
