Hello Alfred users,

 

I created a new Alfred workflow, or better said file action, called alfred-ffprobe. It displays information about selected video files.

 

Github

 

alfred-ffprobe

Alfred 3 workflow to display an information about various video files.

Installation

  1. Install the ffprobe to you MacOS.

  2. Install alfred-ffprobe wokflow.

Usage

Select a video file in finder and invoke the alfred file actions ⌃⌘\.

I have rewritten it from scratch. This is my first Alfred 3 workflow, so I use it to investigate what is possible in the amazing Alfred.

 

Github

 

alfred-ffprobe

Alfred 3 workflow to display an information about various video files.

Installation

  1. Install the ffprobe to your MacOS.

  2. Install alfred-ffprobe wokflow.

  3. All further updates are handled automatically.

Usage

Select a video file or more video files in finder and invoke the alfred file actions ⌃⌘\.

Choose the Analyze media file... in displayed menu and select appropriate action.

Then, the information about selected videos will be shown. The full ffprobe output could be retrieved by selecting the option Full output.

From time to time, full results could be annoying, so there is another option just showing the results describing inner streams. Just select the option Just streams. Output is much more well-arranged.
