The File Properties dialog allows you to choose various options that will apply only to a particular file, stream, device, track, title, or channel. Many of the options are the same or similar to the ones that can be chosen globally in the KPlayer Settings dialog. The options set in file properties will override the global ones. Additionally, options set for a track, title or channel will override options set for the disk or device it comes from. The file properties give you full control of how the file is played, including options that are passed to MPlayer. Other properties display information that KPlayer found out about the file or stream, like time length, video size, and audio and video bitrates.
