in reply to Get size and bitrate of video with perl and ffmpeg

Check out using ffprobe instead of ffmpeg. It doesn't try to play the video and you can pick an output format that suits you.
$ ffprobe -i http://bennugd-vlc.googlecode.com/files/sintel_trailer-48 +0p.mp4 -show_streams -print_format csv 2>/dev/null stream,0,h264,H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10,video,1/48,avc +1,0x31637661,854,480,2,N/A,N/A,yuv420p,30,N/A,1,4,N/A,24/1,24/1,1/24, +0.000000,52.208333,537875,1253,N/A,N/A,1970-01-01 00:00:00,und,VideoH +andler stream,1,aac,Advanced Audio Coding,audio,1/48000,mp4a,0x6134706d,s16,4 +8000,2,0,N/A,0/0,0/0,1/48000,0.000000,51.946667,126694,2435,N/A,N/A,1 +970-01-01 00:00:00,und,SoundHandler
