Preferences for TAB - I love mediainfo! I'm a very heavy user of this great App and I will kindly sugest a new feature: which is a preference pane to control the initial Tab that will be used when open the program. On my case I use all the time the Tree View Tab. (I never use the "easy view") A second option is to remeber the last Tab view, so when we reopen the app, the tab view will be the last one used.

Version 0.7.69
Review by Diadumenianus

Missing One Critical Feature - Very useful application. However, unable to have more than one window open at a time. I want to compare to files. There is no compare function. I will give it five stars when this feature is added.

Incredibly Useful Tool - After using the free version as an important part of my workflow, I was happy to pay for the premium version. The improved presentation in the GUI is a plus. Thank you, and keep up the good work!
