Testing with 2.84c
When i open a MP4 file my "Codec" column has something like "MPEG-4 AAC (Handbrake***)"
where *** is some version number
However when i open a MKV file the same column shows "Audio AAC"or similar and by using the extended tag dialog the "Encoder" filed has for example "Lavf57.7.2" etc. This was a file created by Handbrake if thats significant.
If i try a mkv file created by MakeMKV it has e.g. "Audio DTS" in the codec column as well but no Encoded tag which is fine as a difference between HB and MakeMKV.
I suppose my question is when viewing a MKV file should the Codec filed not show the "same" as the MP4 file would?
I checked the setup for the Codec column and its value is set to "%_codec%[ (%_tool%)]" i assume this is the default but i have changed my setup a lot so i could have changed it in the past.
If an MKV has multiple Audio tracks do you only show details on the first or default audio track
