mediainfo-gui is a Graphical interface for MediaInfo and ExifTool.

It depends on MediaInfo and ExifTool (latest production releases are available in my repo).

The file browser is taken from llelectronics's LLs Video Player (big thanks to him).

xPeria X, Lapuanjoki. No error in command line (as nemo)

ade's picture

I am on Mouhijoki. Apart from the advice to run an up-to-date OS, I see no reason why it should not work (it did then I was on and I can't think of any related changes, or it must be SDK version related). For now maybe stick to 0.2-9 and try again once on a more recent SailifshOS version?

objectifnul's picture

Indeed. I just reflashed my Xperia (mainly to improve the terrible partition scheme in previous releases of SailfishX), now the browse command in mediainfo-gui is OK.
So, Lapuanjoki was probably guilty.

objectifnul's picture

The "Browse" command is unresponsive (v0.3-0)

ade's picture

Works fine on all my devices (nothing changed in the filebrowser). Any errors from the commandline?

ade's picture

In release 0.2-0 ExifTool is no longer optional. The reason is I introduced some functions for photo metadata, and MediaInfo is simple not suited for that (it has a focus on video and audio).

Observer's picture

After last update don't open a files. Instead of showing the info of media file it's opening "directory of file/name of file" and empty page.

ade's picture

You are right, something goes wrong when no configuration is present. Should be fixed in 0.0.1-16.

would it be somehow possible to show compatibility of checked media file
(video, audio) with system ? in a way : "playable" or "not playable" or
somehow similar way ?

just asking because sometimes I do not understand why is one file playable and one not even it they look similar, example:

1/  video: h264-mpeg-4 avc (avc1)   720x306

     audio: mpeg aac (mp4a)

2/  video: h264-mpeg-4 avc (avc1) 1280x720

     audio: vorbis audio

3/  video: h264-mpeg-4 avc (avc1)   1280x546

     audio: mp4a

Only number 2/ was playable, video and audio. Is resolution which causes problems ?

... but I guess those detail questions should be asked somewhere else like MSameer.


... but still what about the compatibility check, is it doable ?



ade's picture

Although I can understand the question, it would be too hard for me.
A lot depends on installed audio/video codecs and the player used. I don't even know if there is a list of that is supported or not.

objectifnul's picture

Since update 0.1.4, the portrait/landscape behaviour in GUI has become really annoying.

ade's picture

Explain "annoying" please. There should me no change in behaviour since the latest update.

All I can say is that the fillebrower part is autorotate, and the app itself is portrait. Is that what you are referring to?

objectifnul's picture

Perhaps it's only in my configuration (Uitukka), but autorotate isn't functional in the filebrowser part (always landscape here).

EDIT - Sorry, issue fixed after reboot. No idea of what happened. Apologies.

manisblack's picture


The problem is solved with this new version.
Again thank you for your work.

ade's picture

Good to hear and thanks for reporting!

Markkyboy's picture

@manisblack - okay, have you tried rebooting?

manisblack's picture


Yes I reboot the system, I also uninstall and reinstall
  mediainfo-gui and mdiainfo

Markkyboy's picture

Great app!, works a treat and is very useful, thanks very much!

manisblack's picture

do not speak English I made a translation by google translate
I installed mediainfo-gui on my jolla Version Once the application is launched I click Select media file, it nothing happens. So I run it from a terminal, here is the return

<code>[nemo@Jolla ~]$ mediainfo-gui

I realized that the "Qt.labs.folderlistmodel" module is not installed but how to fix the problem.
Thank you for your work.


Markkyboy's picture

you probably have not yet installed Mediainfo app. Install Mediainfo app first, then install Mediainfo-gui app.

manisblack's picture

Mediainfo and mediainfo-gui are both installed

ade's picture


I see the issues is not related to the sailfish version, but to a missing package called qt5-qtdeclarative-import-folderlistmodel.

I uploaded version 0.1-1 to fix this dependency


No need to install MediaInfo first, mediainfo-gui will install MediaInfo.

llelectronics's picture

I had to manually install mediainfo as mediainfo-gui did not install it for me.

ade's picture

Okay, I had accidentally overwritten the dependency to mediainfo :(

New version restores it.

ade's picture

That's odd, it is declared as a dependency. Maybe it works for me because I already have my repo active.

I will have a closer look at it later.

And thanks for your work on the filebrowser :)
