Hello, here after is my script to add the video "format" to the name of my movies...

var format = '';
if (item.videoWidth == 0) {
format = '';
} else if (item.videoWidth < 1280) {
if (item.videoHeight < 576) {
format = ' SD NTSC';
} else {
format = ' SD PAL-SECAM';
}
} else if (item.videoWidth < 1920) {
format = ' HD 720p';
}
else if (item.videoWidth < 3840) {
format = ' HD 1080p';
}
else if (item.videoWidth < 7680) {
format = ' UHD 4K';
}
else {
format = ' UHD 8K';
}
format = format + ' (' + item.videoWidth + 'x' + item.videoHeight + ')';
return item.newBasename + format;


Unfortunately, for some movies, item.videoWidth and item.videoHeight are null.
But I noticed that the correct size is available via the ExifTool.

So I can replace item.videoWidth and item.videoHeight with:
var w = item.exifToolValue('ImageWidth');
var h = item.exifToolValue('ImageHeight');

but this is much slower...

Any idea why the video tags don't have a value?
I did compare a movie with the issue and another one that works fine (using MediaInfo v0.7.70) and didn't see any relevant difference.

Here is the info of a movie for which AR returns an empty width:
