I have a bunch of video files but I would like to know stats on them like bitrate, audio format, resolution. Does anyone know of any programs that can identify these attributes of different video files?

Most or all of that info should appear in the tooltip if you hover the mouse over the file. At least, this is so in Konqueror, don't know about Nautilus. Might also try file "Properties" from the context menu.

in Gnome it shows up on R click / properties / Audio-video for most formats ( .mov shows n/a for most everything)

mplayer -identify your/file/here
gives a lot of info.
For specific type of files, there are specific tools: ogminfo, mkvinfo, mp4info... not to mention to good old "file" command
