Reading codec info in some video files

Hi everybody,

I'm testing foobar as a tag manager for video files (with the m-TAGS component and also the FFmpeg Decoder Wrapper), and it works pretty well for the moment.
I'd like to read the codec info in some video files (mkv, mp4), to see if the used video codec is x264 or x265 for instance.
However, %codec% just gives me "mkv" or "mp4", not real codec info.

Is there some way I can achieve this ? Thanks !

Feature request noted.
%codec% is expected show the audio codec used in the files, so another field will be needed, such as %video_codec%.

Thanks Peter. I guess it's too late for version 1.4, but I hope the feature can make its way into the next one.
Thanks again for your great work over the years. Highly appreciated.
