How can I view the bitrate of a media file in Audacity? There are lots of instructions on how to change the bitrate of a file, but I can't find anything about finding the bitrate of the original file. I am able to open the file in iTunes, and see the bitrate there, but I figured that Audacity with all it's power would be able to show it to me without having to open another program.
Some background: I am already using Audacity to edit my audio file. Audacity by default chooses to export at 128kbps, and the file is usually significantly lower than that. I would like to export the audio at around the same bitrate. It would be nice if Audacity would choose the current bitrate as default, but since it doesn't, I would like to see the current bitrate from within Audacity.
