      Hi Jade. Can you give me a bit more of a background about your problem? What type of file did you select? Does the Service work with other files?

        Sorry for not getting back ealyer
        It says AppleScript AppleScript Failed – 1 error

        Also I got the Message The Run AppleScript encountered an error

        I checked in my document folder and had a new folder called Metadata but nothing in it. How can I get the script to run on an image?

        Can the script be run on a folder of image and then give the output in a single file

          Not sure if you can run it on a folder containing the file but you wouldn’t need to to get the result you want. change the output to mimic the file being analyzed- which would be inside the folder. Just need to change the output in the apple script.

    Excellent service; thanks a lot!

    Much more convenient than running mediainfo

    Hi Johneday,

    This all works. Can you give me a hint how to continue in Apple automator. If i want to extract certain values from the generated file-documents. For example the value “Duration”, and then output these values of every file I input to 1.txt document or word.doc and clear all the intermediate.txt again.

    Maybe i’m talking about a work around now. First make al, the txt files of movies, and then group them again 1 new txt file. Maybe better do it directly to 1 file. So i’ll better explain what i want to do actually in whole:

    What i finally want to do is input serval Quicktime movies, and output their duration, framerate, amount of audiotracks, aspect and resolution to 1 Word.doc or .TXT document. So that I get like a technical rapport of the video-files I input in a tekst document. That would be great and such a time saver….
