GSpot identifies presence or absence of "B-VOP", "Qpel", and "GMC", thus allowing the user to determine if a DivX5 file is compatible with KISS and other popular hardware DivX players. Provides information about MPEG1 or MPEG2 video and/or MPEG1 or MPEG2 audio either as "elementary" streams or multiplexed into an MPEG1 "system stream" or an MPEG2 "program stream". Limited support for MPEG4 video when contained in an AVI stream, such as DivX5.

This is such a useful tool. I've always liked it more than MediaInfo. Is GSpot now totally a dead project?

I love the utility, but won't give a 5 until the "full file scan" can be done manually. I don't want that option off, but hate the CPU and I/O grind when it's scanning large files...
BTW... Actually that is not the real basis for the name "GSpot":
"I was posting on a message forum at the time, under the rather unimaginative nick 'Steve G'. And there was already a program called EncSpot which identified audio encoders. Somewhere along the line the idea came up that I could write such a program for video and call it 'GSpot'. The idea was funny enough that I actually did it."

Great utility, very useful! I've often wondered about the name :) Now am enlightened ..lol

Great utility that I've been using for years.
I believe the author on the name, but it's quite appropriate anyway, after all, the pr0n industry spearheaded the digital video revolution, and I bet G-Spot's been used more times to work out how to play that damn pr0n clip downloaded from some P2P app than for any other use!
