Good call. I know of at least one Win32 program that can do this (which
escapes me right now)-- scan through your collective of AVI files and
create a list of codecs used. Yes, for the standard containers (AVI,
WAV, ASF, AIFF, MOV, etc.) we should be able to create a cursory
database/spreadsheet automatically with some simple ad-hoc tools.
