Find video files with multiple audio tracks

Post by tordenflesk »

Is it possible to index and search for video files with multiple audio tracks?
Mostly .mkv and mp4 containers.

Everything 1.5.0.1359a

I have put this on my TODO list.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Everything 1.5.0.1360a adds the following properties:
  • Audio Track Count
  • Video Track Count
  • Subtitle Track Count
Currently, they work for both mkv and mp4 containers.
(mp4 containers don't have official subtitle tracks)



To view these properties:
  • In Everything 1.5, right click the result list column header and click Add Columns....
  • Search for: track
  • Select Audio Track Count, Video Track Count and/or Subtitle Track Count.
  • Click OK.


To search for media files with no audio track, include the following in your search:

audio-track-count:0



To search for media files with multiple audio tracks, include the following in your search:

audio-track-count:>1



To search for media files with multiple video tracks, include the following in your search:

video-track-count:>1



To search for media files with a subtitle track, include the following in your search:

subtitle-track-count:



audio-track-count:
video-track-count:
subtitle-track-count:

So

Code: Select all

audio-track-count:
would show all media files that have only 1 audio track, while

Code: Select all

audio-track-count:<1
mute files?


And if

then does it then mean that [regardless of Everything's capabilities] all MP4 files will never have subtitles in them - unless hardcoded in them?

Well, am I right? I need to be sure that I understood correctly instructions from the Search Functions help topic

And what about the subtitles question

audio-track-count:

would show all media files that have only 1 audio track
audio-track-count: will show all media files that contain 1 or more audio tracks.



Use the following to find media files with only 1 audio track:

audio-track-count:1



Use the following to find media files with 2 or more audio tracks:

audio-track-count:>1



To find files where Everything doesn't know the audio track count, include the following in your search:

audio-track-count:unknown


audio-track-count:<1

mute files?
Yes, same result as:

audio-track-count:0


does it then mean that [regardless of Everything's capabilities] all MP4 files will never have subtitles in them - unless hardcoded in them?
mp4 files can have subtitle track (subp)
I'll add support for this in the next alpha update.

It's good that I have asked about it then

Looking forward to that update

It seems that version 1.5.0.1371a x64 Portable is capable of showing me also files with subtitle tracks when video files are in MP4 format
