       tracker-extract - Extract metadata from a file.


       tracker-extract [OPTION...] FILE...


       tracker-extract  reads  the  file  and  mimetype  provided in stdin and
       extract the metadata from this file; then it displays the  metadata  on
       the standard output.

       NOTE:  If  a  FILE is not provided then tracker-extract will run for 30
       seconds waiting for DBus calls before quitting.


       -?, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -v, --verbosity=N
              Set verbosity to N. This overrides  the  config  value.   Values
              include 0=errors, 1=minimal, 2=detailed and 3=debug.

       -f, --file=FILE
              The  FILE  to  extract  metadata  from. The FILE argument can be
              either a local path or a URI. It also does not  have  to  be  an
              absolute path.

       -m, --mime=MIME
              The  MIME  type  to use for the file. If one is not provided, it
              will be guessed automatically.

       -d, --disable-shutdown
              Disable shutting down after 30 seconds of inactivity.

       -i, --force-internal-extractors
              Use this option to force internal extractors  over  3rd  parties
              like libstreamanalyzer.

       -m, --force-module=MODULE
              Force  a  particular  module  to  be  used.  This  is  here as a
              convenience for developers wanting to test  their  MODULE  file.
              Only  the  MODULE  name  has to be specified, not the full path.
              Typically,      a       MODULE       is       installed       to
              /usr/lib/tracker-0.7/extract-modules/.   This option can be used
              with or without the .so part of the name too, for  example,  you
              can use --force-module=foo

              Modules  are  shared objects which are dynamically loaded at run
              time. These files must have the .so suffix to be loaded and must
              contain  the  correct  symbols  to  be authenticated by tracker-
              extract.   For  more  information  see  the   libtracker-extract
              reference documentation.

       -V, --version
              Show binary version.


       Using command line to extract metadata from a file:

               $ tracker-extract -v 3 -f /path/to/some/file.mp3

       Using a specific module to extract metadata from a file:

               $ tracker-extract -v 3 -f /path/to/some/file.mp3 -m mymodule


              This  is  the  directory  which  tracker uses to load the shared
              libraries from (used for extracting metadata for  specific  file
              types). These are needed on each invocation of tracker-store. If
              unset it will default to the correct place. This is used  mainly
              for testing purposes.
