The Cablecast installation folder contains MediaInfo.exe, a utility used by Cablecast's file validation process when importing new content into Cablecast. This tool may also be used to manually obtain detailed information on video files present on the Cablecast server.

A version of MediaInfo with a full user interface is also available at https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo . It may be installed on a Cablecast server for additional convenience, and won't affect Cablecast.
