That's _maybe_ possible, but don't forget that most video files also
contain audio, therefore the method you suggest would pring the whole
file (audio+video+subs+...) bitrate.
I don't think it's a good idea to print an inaccurate information,
therefore I won't support implementing a pseudo-bitrate calculation
unless it can be accurate and fast (parsing the whole file is out of
the question, of course).
I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject
is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to
make him really know what he's talking about.
