qlBitRate is a QuickLook plugin that will display the bitrate (in kbps) of an MP3 file in the title bar of the QuickLook window. This plugin has been tested to work in at least OS X 10.7 (Lion) and 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

Check out the plugin and docs on GitHub here:

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for viewing my MP3 files in QuickLook and not have to open iTunes. I wish it could show the bitrate for other media files (.WAV, .FLAC, .M4A) but this will do or FREE!!!

    Does not work on Macbook Air OSX 10.10.3

    It will take a while (± 5-10sec) before it even can preview audio (without the plugin installed it plays instantly) and the title won’t display the bitrate.
