    metadata?


    Does anyone know of any existing python scripts (and preferably python only, no C) for extracting metadata from .jpg, .gif, .avi, .mov, or any others? I already have .mp3 working fine.

    If no scripts exist, maybe someone could tell me where I might find some sort of documentation on this....I've looked all over, but could only find docs on ID3.

    Thanks

    I dont know of any pre-existing scripts to do this however if you know the format of an image it shouldn't be too hard to retirve the data. Of course you could always use PIL; but ebing written in C/C++ i dont know...

    If you go for the PIL aproch you should read my article in devsheds Python section.

    Hope this helps,
