Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-634) Command Line Parser for Metadata Extraction
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2011 17:43:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-634?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13016459#comment-13016459

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-634:

I've done some work on this. We can now use XML files to define what command to run, what
args to give it, and how to get the metadata.

There's an initial example file for using FFMpeg committed, we may want to replace that with
a different example longer term, especially as I hope to do a dedicated FFMpeg ExternalParser
that is able to dynamically build the supported mime types based on what libraries are available
to ffmpeg.

No unit tests yet, but my plan is to do it with a couple of perl scripts (with the test being
skipped if perl isn't there)

extraction, and probably easier configuration of an external parser too.
