MediaInfoWDX: all fields are 0

Post by *Thany » 2018-07-04, 14:56 UTC

Everything on every file is 0.

How to fix this?

You have to edit Fields.txt included in the plugin and remove the drive L:\ specification in the first line. Don't remove the 1 before that drive though!

This is a (known) downside of this plugin, and/or its author because he/she doesn't realize that such a drive specification must not be in a redistributable package.

On my installation it works fine even with "drive L:\ specification in the first line".

Other possible causes of empty fields:

a) missing libraries, in this case Visual C++ runtime 2015 or 2017.

b) wrong MediaInfo.dll

MedisInfoWDX.wdx (32-bit plugin) uses MediaInfo.dll (32-bit)
MediaInfoWDX.wdx64 (64-bit plugin) uses MediaInfo64.dll (64-bit)

If you are using TC 64-Bit you need MediaInfo64.dll.

Note:
MediaInfo_i386.dll of a Mediainfo installation = MediaInfo.dll of plugin
MediaInfo.dll of Mediainfo installation = MediaInfo64.dll of plugins
