xjinfo - extract an A/V file information

xjinfo is a small command-line utility that comes with xjadeo. Its purpose it to retrieve information about audio/video files in a standard way: either CSV, XML or simplified human readable text. A DTD for the XML is available from the repository.

xjinfo uses ffmpeg's libavformat to determine the information. Basically it can read any format ffmpeg supports (ffmpeg -formats).

usage: xjinfo [Options] <video-file>
Options:
  -h   display this help and exit
  -V   print version information and exit
  -x   print XML (default).
  -t   print duration of file in seconds.
  -v   dump human readable video stream information.
  -c   dump comma separated video stream information.
       one line for each video stream:
        file-duration,file-fps,stream-fps,width,height,codec,colorspace
       Units: file-len: sec; fps: 1/sec; w&h: pixels; codec+fmt: text

Example Output:

  • “Human readable”:

00:04:37.4 - fps:25.00 w:352 h:264 #mpeg1video,yuv420p

  • Comma separated value:

277,90000.00,25.00,352,264,1:1,mpeg1video,yuv420p

  • “duration only” (in seconds):

277
