Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.7.90, Package name: mediainfo-0.7.90, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

MediaInfo supplies technical and tag information about a video or audio file.

What information can I get from MediaInfo?

- Video: codec, aspect, fps, bitrate...
- Audio: codec, sample rate, channels, language, bitrate...
- Text: language of subtitle
- Chapters: number of chapters, list of chapters
What format (container) does MediaInfo support?
- Video: MKV, OGM, AVI, DivX, WMV, QuickTime, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4,
DVD (VOB)... (Codecs: DivX, XviD, MSMPEG4, ASP, H.264, AVC...)
- Audio: OGG, MP3, WAV, RA, AC3, DTS, AAC, M4A, AU, AIFF...
- Subtitles: SRT, SSA, ASS, SAMI...
What can I do with it?
- Read many video and audio file formats
- Different methods of viewing information (text, sheet, tree, HTML...)
- You can customise these views
- Exporting information as text, CSV, HTML...
- Internationalisation: Any language display on any version of your
operating system
- Localisation capability (but volunteers needed)

Log message:
Update mediainfo and libmediainfo to 0.7.77

The change logs between 0.7.65 and 0.7.77 total several hundred lines, and
consists primarily of very detailed per-codec trivia.  The complete change
logs can be found in the source distribution as MediaInfo/History_CLI.txt and
MediaInfoLib/History_DLL.txt.

Pkgsrc:

  - patch-MediaInfoLib_Source_MediaInfo_Text_File__Ttml.h applied upstream.

  - pkglint a bit.

  - mediainfo appears to have done some work in avoiding bashisms, so remove
    "bash" from the tools.

  - CONFIG_SHELL doesn't need to be explicitly bash any longer.  Possibly this
    was only ever necessary because bash seems to be the only shell that was
    willing to treat a garbage shell substitution (caused by a bug in the
    configure.ac) as somehow legal.

  - ... and libmediainfo now actually builds if you accidentally on purpose
    override CONFIG_SHELL to be pdksh.
