Answering "Will It Play?" WITHOUT trying to play the movie
So here's the situation. For a few years now I've been watching movies on my desktop, because my desktop monitor was better than my TV. In the process of doing this, I ripped nearly all of the DVDs I owned onto the machine with Handbrake.
Now that I have a nicer TV, I want to switch back to watching via the Xbox 360 or, possibly, an Apple TV. Which of those I end up using is beside the point: one could easily imagine that I have a PS3 instead and this question still holds.
At some point I got overly-wanky about quality and began mucking about with Handbrake settings to try to play the min-max game about quality. The end result of this is that some of my ripped movies play on the Xbox 360, and some don't. I presume this would also be true for any other set-top box-ish solution. I now know what settings I "should" be ripping them with so that they work. That's not my question.
My question is this: is there some sort of tool I can run on my computer to automagically figure out which movies are compatible and which are not, so that I don't have to individually try to watch every one of several hundred files on the TV in order to figure out which ones I need to re-rip?
