[FFmpeg-user] Impossible to get the bit depth value of an audio-file with ffprobe

First of all, thank you for your clear cut response. Now, instead of nitpicking every word and being an edgy asshole full of yourself, do you possess any relevant knowledge on how to get the bit depth value with ffprobe? That was my main point of asking the question, in the first place, in case you were “missing”.

Not necessary, since it seems you were

In what way? An answer as blunt as yours, that's misleading. The output the user provided showed the audio created from an LP. But that’s not what my question was about, so we move on.

If that was misunderstanding then it’s on your quite disrespectful, rude and brazen way of communicating your thoughts. Something to think about. Or is it a common trait of tech people - to treat people like scam and unidentified blocks of corrupt data?

Mr. Car Eugen, if you pretend to be in possession of the fullest expert-level knowledge then you don’t need a log for what should be a commonly used option - retrieving the value. I’m asking once again: is it possible to retrieve the bit depth value of an audio-file like the application I mentioned in my OP with ffprobe or another ff-utility? Yes, no. If yes - how. Nothing more required.
