Its not Get Info, its the feature in QuickTime Player called "Show Movie Info" which is under the Window menu and has the key command command-i just like Get Info in the Finder does. The Show Movie Info feature will display the video and audio codec info but the trick is that you have to be able to open the file in QuickTime Player... DOH!
Try getting info on the file from within either MPlayer OSX or VLC (both are free downloads listed at VersionTracker.com or MacUpdate.com)PowerMac G5, Mac OS X (10.3.9)

MPlayer OS X can't play the file; in fact, it crashes every time it tries to play it. VLC, however, handles it no problem.
The VLC info window says the codc is mp42. I don't anything about this codec. Any reason why it wouldn't play in QT or MPlayer OS X?
Thanks for your help JulieJulieJulie.
