Does anyone know a file manager that allows to show videos bit rates when files are viewed as a list? On Nautilus, I have tried nautilus-columns, and it shows exif for audio files, but not for videos.

Thanks in advance.

If you consider your terminal a file manager ... ffprobe will display media bit rates

ffprobe "LarryLessig_2014-480p.mp4"

... output
