    recently i tried VideoInspector v1.7,

    it is a good tool to get information like codec, bitrate, frame size etc.,

    but it dosen't support DAT (Video) files

    .Dat files are usually a MPEG 1 compression media and are mainly used as VCD quality video which has a standard resolution of 352x288 pixels and a standard Bitrate of 1150Kbit/Sec(PAL version).You could Try GSpot Codec verifier for most of the codec Indentification.use this link http://www.free-codecs.com/download/GSpot.htm

    If I remember correctly, Gspot did work for me for dat files so you can try that out.
