|One line summary||Tool to extract audio properties and metadata from audio files|
|Detailed description|| AQUAdio is a wrapper script around the Open Source getID3() PHP-library.
It extracts all possible information from audiofiles (MP3, WAV, MP4, AIFF, etc.) such as audio properties (bitrate, #channels, sample-frequency, etc.) and metadata (ID3v1, ID3v2, BWAVE metadata, etc) and writes the results to an XML file next to the audiofile.
An XSLT stylesheet can be applied to the XML to show the information in a styled way
The XML files can be also used by applications such as indexers, viewed in browsers and XML editors such as XMLSpy.
Files it does not recognize are moved to a subfolder 'unrecognized' in the same folder.
Additionally the wrapper is able to create an MD5 fixity-file next to analysed file, if configured to do so. By default this feature is turned off because it is very CPU-hungry.
