Media Detail

Hi everyone!

Is there a way to retreive a video files characteristics in ruby on
rails?

Thank you for your help

The question is not rails related at all, you should look into ffmpeg is an open source library for manipulating video formats that you can use to extract information. Again , rails is a web development framework and IO operations are a ruby related topic specially video manipulation.

Also look at Mediainfo. A real pain to install, but it gives a treasure trove of info about a video file, way more detail than you might need in some cases.
