MediaInfo command

Post by pla » Sat Sep 18, 2010 9:10 pm

Hi,

I demoed MythTV at the Charleston, SC Linux Users Group meeting today. One of the questions was how big are the files. MythTV doesn't show file sizes any where that I can see. You can run ls -l on the recordings directory but that is no fun. So, I combined some MySQL tables with the mediainfo command and created a spreadsheet. Check it out if you are interested. The mediainfo command provides all kind of information. See an example in the screen shot.

Rock on, PLA

very nice PLA!

I'll install mediainfo and play with it.
I love CLI tools.

Thanks!
