I downloaded & installed the mediainfo application, and it runs fine.
Unfortunately, I do not know what it is telling me? Maybe if I wait until
I've had a good nights sleep, it will make more sense. The last failure
indicated the audio codec was "MPEG audio decoder" and the video was "MPEG
video decoder" - when I go to technical support to list the codecs, those
codecs are not listed. When I go to the suggested web site to download, they
are also not listed. I feel like Alice in Wonderland.
