Well, we're not techs, we're just regular users like you. No such  
thing as "techs" when it comes to open source software. Coders, yes;  
techs no.

It's been so long since I've monkied around with Windows, I couldn't  
tell you. However, VLC should do the job, regardless of what you have  
installed.

I know the command line app has an option for info, not sure where it  
is on the graphical apps, though.
