How To Create .nfo Files in Linux

MediaInfo is a free, open source and multi-platform (works on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX) application which supplies technical and tag information about a video or audio file, which we are going to use to create .nfo files.


MediaInfo comes with a very easy to use GUI for Windows which, unfortunately is incomplete for Linux so Windows users can just use that, and I'm going to cover how to create the .nfo file in Linux using command-line. In Windows, just export the info to a .txt file and rename it to .nfo.
