Metadata 0.5

Any chance you could wrap this up as a gem?

I already have a gemspec file, but gem screws up bin/chardet by
plastering it with #!/usr/bin/ruby boilerplate (it’s a python file).

And I don’t know how to turn it off.

Another bug (Sorry :D):
$ mdh -p ~/music/Limp\ Bizkit\ -\ Rollin’\ (edited).ogg
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token (' sh: -c: line 0:ogginfo ‘/home/konrad/music/Limp Bizkit - Rollin’
(edited).ogg’’

(Last line was broken up to email length.) You’re already escaping single
quotes for the shell, need to escape start-parens and end-parens as well.

Argh, amateurish mistake on my part, thanks for catching that. Fixed.
If in a bit over-engineered way (creating a safely named link to the
file.)
Probably impossible to safely pass a filename like “-f -i -l -e -z”
to a shell command that doesn’t support “–” in any other way, though.

Also:
For mp3 id3v2 tags, the binary string “\xCB\x99\xC5\xA3” is being inserted
at the front of all the string fields.

[snip]

I think this is an id3v2 thing. Also, it happens in more than one file and
amaroK sees the tags “correctly”, so I’m thinking it’s on the metadata’s
end. Thanks!

Right you are. Fixed. No idea what was causing it. Moved to
using id3lib for the tags (it extracts embedded album art as well!) and
mplayer for the rest of the metadata.

Here we go, 0.5:

tarball: http://dark.fhtr.org/repos/metadata/metadata-0.5.tar.gz
git: http://dark.fhtr.org/repos/metadata

Description

This package Metadata' comes with a library calledmetadata’ and
a small program called `mdh’.

The library probes files for their metadata (e.g. jpeg dimensions
and camera make, mp3 artist, pdf word count) and returns the metadata
as a Hash.

Mdh can print out file metadata as YAML and package the metadata
with the file.

This package has many dependencies since there is no single universal
metadata header format that all files use. Blame resource forks,
filename
extensions, bags of bytes and mimetypes.

Usage

print out metadata header

mdh -p myfile.jpg

create myfile.jpg.mdh, which consists of metadata header +

myfile.jpg
mdh myfile.jpg

print out metadata header from mdh file

mdh -e -p myfile.jpg.mdh

strip out metadata header from mdh file and save it to myfile.jpg

mdh -e myfile.jpg.mdh

print out list of flags

mdh -h

irb> Metadata.extract(‘myfile.jpg’)
irb> Metadata.extract_text(‘myfile.jpg’)
irb> Pathname.new(“myfile.jpg”).metadata

List of supported formats

Audio:
Whatever you manage to make mplayer play.
Plus FLAC, m4a and wma handled specially.
Successfully tested with:
mp3, flac, ogg, wav
Should also work:
wma, m4a

Video:
Whatever you manage to make mplayer play.
Successfully tested with:
wmv, mov, divx, xvid, flv, ogm, mpg

Images:
Should handle pretty much anything (apart from XCF and ORF.)
Successfully tested with:
jpeg, png, gif, nef, dng, crw, pef, psd

Documents:
Successfully tested with:
pdf, ppt, odp, sxi, ps, ps.gz, html, txt
Should work:
- OpenOffice docs work to some degree (personally, I’m using unoconv
to
convert OO docs to temp PDFs for the text & dimensions extraction,
so
those bits of data are missing.)
- MS Office docs to some degree (ppt at least, doc and xls should
work too,
dimensions missing due to the above temp PDF -thing.)

Others:
Whatever extract spits out on the five or six bits of metadata I’m
using
from it. Archive contents at least.

Requirements

Install

De-compress archive and enter its top directory.
Then type:

($ su)
# ruby setup.rb

These simple step installs this program under the default
location of Ruby libraries. You can also install files into
your favorite directory by supplying setup.rb some options.
Try “ruby setup.rb --help”.

Another bug, here we go:

/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/metadata/extract.rb:142:in `extract’

That code that seems to be failing is:

def video_x_theora_ogg(filename, charset)
h = video(filename, charset)
wma = audio_x_vorbis_ogg(filename, charset)
%w(

).each{|t|
h[‘Video.’+t] = wma[‘Audio.’+t]

This makes sense, as audio_x_vorbis_ogg() doesn’t exist anywhere else.

What has it printed out?

in my collection and running back to you when I get errors. :D)

Not sure what that is, and frankly atm my brain is a bit too weak to think
about it. But you should be fresh and able to solve that.

Apparently temporary hardlinks weren’t such a hot idea after all. Nuts.

Ok, now escaping filename by default, only trying to “ln rescue cp” for
filenames starting with a dash. Running it against my downloads-dir
presently, been working ok thus far. YMMV of course :slight_smile:

Ah, it uses Name instead of Title. Thanks!
Added it and made 0.8.

Now I wonder what other synonyms mplayer uses…
I’d really appreciate it if you could run the following over
your media library and tell what field names it spews out:

find $MEDIA_LIBRARY_DIR -type f |
mplayer -identify -ao null -vo null -frames 0 -playlist - |
grep ID_CLIP_INFO_NAME | sed ‘s/^.*=//’ | sort | uniq

(replace $MEDIA_LIBRARY_DIR with the directory name)

Thanks again,

I’d love to run that but mplayer dies rather early on on some of my files.

Hmm, here’s a ruby version that should work through those:

media_dir = “music”
seen_names = {}
mpc = “mplayer -identify -ao null -vo null -frames 0 -playlist -
2>/dev/null”
Dir["#{media_dir}/**/*"].each{|fn|
if File.file?(fn)
IO.popen(mpc, “r+”){|mp|
begin
mp.puts fn
mp.close_write
tags = mp.read.strip.split("\n").grep(/^ID_CLIP_INFO_NAME/)
names = tags.map{|t| t.split("=", 2)[1] }
names.each{|n|
seen_names[n] ||= (puts n; true)
}
rescue
end
}
end
}

I’d guess one of the libraries you’re using for parsing is giving back 40
as a genre or track number (a bit high, but might be tagged wrong) and it
needs to be converted to a string before you can use it.

Good catch, thanks. Fixed.

Well, I’m having it run over all of them, then print the output. But
sometimes mplayer just starts eating 100% cpu and doesn’t exit, so the
script gets stuck on the one song.
