Mediainfo and rtorrent

Post by alexr »

I recently installed Mediainfo because I need it for rtorrent. Using the latest version of Dietpi (v6.22) on the Odroid XU4.

here's the website: https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo/Download/Debian
here's the installation code:

Code: Select all

wget https://mediaarea.net/repo/deb/repo-mediaarea_1.0-7_all.deb && dpkg -i repo-mediaarea_1.0-7_all.deb && apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mediainfo
It installed successfully, but when I test it, it produces an empty output (regardless of file format):

Code: Select all

mediainfo filename.avi
<no output>
See update in the next reply.

Update: Upon further investigation, it appears that Mediainfo is working for all files under 2GB (in file size) but not those above. Possibly related to this issue: https://sourceforge.net/p/mediainfo/dis ... /90c4808c/.

Hard to tell what exactly is the problem since I have the latest version installed from the repo. Any ideas? Or should I turn to the mediainfo github for help?

Yeah we do not pre-install mediainfo for some reason.

The 2G border is quite a bumper since high resolution media files usually have larger sizes. Yeah it is best to check their GitHub or sourceforge page for related discussions and in case raise a feature request.
