    MediaInfo seems to be the leading tool for output of video metadata. I would use that as a reference. Matching or improving on that will probably be the greatest ‘win’ for the community.

  2. I would agree with the comment about MediaInfo. We use it at Yale University Library when we digitize video. Also, see that significant characteristics of digital video page on the Archivematica website: (https://www.archivematica.org/wiki/Significant_characteristics_of_video_files). They have based their characteristics on other research, including (http://www.ahds.ac.uk/preservation/video-preservation-handbook.pdf) and (http://www.jisc.ac.uk/media/documents/programmes/preservation/spmovimages_report.pdf).
