The QuickView LT Interface
Standard playback controls allow you to start, stop and frame advance through the video. They are described in detail below:
The Copy Frame to Clipboard button (red camera icon shown above) will copy the currently displayed frame to your Windows clipboard at the native pixel dimensions.
Native pixel dimensions are displayed under the Metadata section as “Dimension”, as shown below.
NOTE: Regardless of the size of the QuickView LT™ video display area, the “Copy frame to clipboard” command copies the frame to your clipboard at the video’s native pixel dimensions.
QuickView LT™ provides a quick & easy way to leverage the power of FFmpeg Convert from your Omnivore™ drive without having to launch the Omnivore™ Viewer.

• Convert to a compressed file.
• Extract audio as uncompressed or compressed.

The QuickDME™ Metadata Viewer displays the file’s metadata as reported by ExifTool, MediaInfo, and FFprobe, along with a Summary report showing the output from all three tools side-by-side.
To access the QuickDME™ Metadata Viewer click the icon shown to the right of the Omnivore™ icon.
When clicked a new window will open that will display the output from each tool and a metadata summary report in a tabbed layout, as shown below.
Simply click the Save icon to select options for saving to PDF and the options shown below are displayed. Click the Copy button to copy the text from the Summary Report Tab only to your clipboard.
Select/De-Select the contents of your report, whether you want to obfuscate the file path in each report, then click the “OK” button to give the PDF file a name and navigate to where you’d like to save it.
In addition to the output from ExifTool, MediaInfo, and FFprobe the Metadata Summary Report includes the file’s MD5 & SHA1 hash values.
