    MediaData helps display the metadata of mediafiles.

    You can use it in console mode or gui mode.

    The console mode displays information on the console:

    mediadata file1 file2 ...

    The gui mode displays information in a GTK window in the form of a (tabbed) tree. It works in set mode or interactive mode.

    mediadatagtk file1 file2 ...

    In set mode the files to browse are explicitly mentioned on the command-line: this may be used in conjunction with Nautilus-actions to provide integration with the browser (please also note that the nautilus-mediadata pakage will provide similar functionality).

    In interactive mode, nothing is specified on the command-line and the user is free to browse specific files at run time.

    Please also note that whenever two mediafiles are opended, a comparison tab will open, which displays the differences.

    Finally, mediadatadb is a command-line app that sends the extracted info to a mysql database. It is trickier to use as it requires database info to be fetched from a .mediadatadb.cfg file in the user's home. Each section in this file forms a set of parameters to be used that has to be filled in by the user prior to use. The name of the section is the first parameter.

    mediadatadb section-of-mediadatadb.cfg file1 ...

    Please note that file can be a folder, in which case all mediafiles it contains will be scanned.
