Hachoir project- hachoir metadata

http://hachoir.org/wiki/hachoir-metadata
hachoir-metadata extracts metadata from multimedia files: music, picture, video, but also archives. It supports most common file formats:

  • Archives: bzip2, gzip, zip, tar
  • Audio: MPEG audio ("MP3"), WAV, Sun/NeXT audio, Ogg/Vorbis (OGG), MIDI, AIFF, AIFC, Real audio (RA)
  • Image: BMP, CUR, EMF, ICO, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, TIFF, WMF, XCF
  • Misc: Torrent
  • Program: EXE
  • Video: ASF format (WMV video), AVI, Matroska (MKV), Quicktime (MOV), Ogg/Theora, Real media (RM)
  • It tries to give as much information as possible. For some file formats, it gives more information than libextractor for example, such as the RIFF parser, which can extract creation date, software used to generate the file, etc. But hachoir-metadata cannot guess informations. The most complex operation is just to compute duration of a music using frame size and file size. hachoir-metadata has three modes:
  • classic mode: extract metadata, you can use --level=LEVEL to limit quantity of information to display (and not to extract)
  • --type: show on one line the file format and most important informations
  • --mime: just display file MIME type
