If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

With so many flavors of format and compression you might just run ffmpeg against it and dump the properties.  I dont how reliable it would be, but if you dont want to go 3rd party you could probably inspect id3 tags.

That stack overflow method creates a list of extensions - some of which are not video formats. There is also a winAPI call to retrieve a file's perceived type based on its extension (not sure how reliable it is).  Modified help file example below with list from StackOverflow example:

#include <WinAPIReg.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

global $mediaExtensions[16]=[".PNG", ".JPG", ".JPEG", ".BMP", ".GIF",".WAV", ".MID", ".MIDI", ".WMA", ".MP3", ".OGG", ".RMA",".AVI", ".MP4", ".DIVX", ".WMV"]
for $a=0 to ubound($mediaExtensions)-1
local $aData = _WinAPI_AssocGetPerceivedType($mediaExtensions[$a])
    If IsArray($aData) Then
        ConsoleWrite('(' & $mediaExtensions[$a] & ')' & @CRLF)
        ConsoleWrite('String: ' & $aData[2] & @CRLF)
    EndIf
next

Simpler using a regular expression  :)

Local $extensions = "mp4|avi|flv|wmv|mpg|mpeg"  ; populate this as needed

If StringRegExp($filename, '(?i)\.(' & $extensions & ')$') Then Msgbox(0,"", "it is a video file")

I never said that the list I wrote was all inclusive - reason why I added  "populate this as needed"   :)
