I have created a debian package of AVInfo (1.0.a15), a very usefull utility that
extracts various information from multimedia files, such as MPEG or AVI, and generates
detailed (and fully configurable) reports. AVInfo is free software (GNU GPL).
I am looking for someone who will help this nice program to get into Debian.
Some basic information about AVInfo can be found at
http://shounen.ru/avinfo (in Russian)
The power of AVInfo is in A.S.S. (Avinfo Simple Script) built-in template language.
This language is the base of the report generation process. The program is shipped
with a number of pre-compiled templates, and the new ones can be added easily.
AVInfo is actively developed. It has been already ported to FreeBSD (avinfo-0.7.4)
and to Gentoo (avinfo-1.0.a15). Personally, I successfully compiled and used it on
several i386 boxes running Debian and Slackware. I have also compiled it under
AVInfo is a "must have" tool for anyone with a huge number of multimedia files on
her/his hard drives.
Here is the content of the package Description
Description: Audio/Video information automatic extractor / file list generator
AVInfo is a powerful tool for extracting practically any useful information
from a collection of your multimedia files. It works with many different file
formats including most popular ones as AVI, OGG, OGM, MPEG, and MKV.
All the file scanning code has been implemented from scratch. AVInfo does not
rely on any external libraries to do this job and has been written in pure C.
Due to that it is fast and efficient. It has a built-in scripting language
called A.S.S. (AVInfo Simple Script) that is used in templates which control
the output of the program. It is a "must have" tool for anyone with a huge
number of multimedia files on her/his hard drives.
I have placed the package files that I created under my home page:
Check them and if you like the program and the package please support my wish of
making AVInfo a part of the Debian distribution.
With my best regards,
