    Hi,



    I have searched the forums for this, but I could not find anyone asking for this.
    This Christmas i gave my self a new HI-FI setup, and immediatly noticed the huge difference in quality when listening to my music-collection.
    I will start re-ripping to flac lossless soon, but that will take a LOT of time.

    I am using the My Tv-series plugin, and I love the icons showing media information like: 16/9, 4/3, SD, HD, MP3 2.0 and so forth.
    I am basically missing the same functionality in MP.

    It would be great if MP could show the bitrate and codec in the db-view, and maybe skinners could overlay the album-art with this information as an icon?

    Example of information:

    MP3 320kbps VBR 44.1kHz/24-bit
    MP3 128kbps CBR 44.1kHz/24-bit
    FLAC 96kHz/24-bit

    This could be further simplified e.g :

    MP3 320kbps VBR 44.1kHz/24-bit - MP3 High Quality - High Quality
    MP3 128kbps CBR 44.1kHz/24-bit - MP3 Low Quality - Low Quality
    FLAC 96kHz/24-bit - FLAC Lossless - Lossless

    Is this feasible to implement?

    Best Regards

    This would be a nice addition, if possible.

    I searched the forums a bit more, and I noticed that my tv-series uses "mediainfo.dll" to get the information I mentioned in the previous post.
