I'm devleoping an Android application. The official site lists all the codecs which are recommended for videos in Android platform.

I have 2 videos. One of them cannot be played by Android. I would like to check the codec for both files to see is the codec the problem.

What tool do I need in Windows 10 to check such property?

With ffprobe (included in the ffmpeg build), run

ffprobe yourvideo.ext

Or with MediaInfo, just use the GUI. If you set the display mode to Text you'll be able to see all the details for the streams.
