I have zillions of videos encoded in different frame sizes, frame rates, codecs, etc. I would like to be able to use some sort of application that can list all these characteristics of videos in a given directory.

Do you guys know something out there that can do the trick on Mac OS X Snow Leopard? (preferably open source).

FFmpeg is an open-source command line tool able to do what you request.

If you want to install it from source code, take a look at: FFmpeg on Mac OS X How-To.

If you want a GUI interface, check out: FFmpegX.
