dmedia - The Distributed Media Library
dmedia DIRECTORY EXTENSIONS...
dmedia is simple distributed media library. Media files are given a globally unique ID based on their content-hash. Meta-data is stored in CouchDB. Meta-data for a large number of media files can be available locally (meta-data is small). Actual media files can be loaded on-demand from peers or cloud when not available locally (media files are big). Goals are to make synchronization super easy, and to lay groundwork for a distributed content creation workflow.
--version Show program's version number and exit --help,-h Show a help message and exit --quick Do a fast scan without extracting extra metadata --project=PROJECT Add imported files to specified PROJECT --tag=TAG Add specified TAG to imported files --type=TYPE Add specified TYPE to the list of file types to limit the import to. TYPE can be 'image', 'audio', 'video' or 'all'. 'all' is the default and represents 'image', 'audio' and 'video' files. --extension=EXTENSION Add specified EXTENSION to the list of file extensions to limit the import to. By default, all file extensions that are recognised as audio, video or image file formats will be imported.
dmedia /media This will import all media files from all of your connected devices. dmedia /media/EOS_DIGITAL --type=image This will recursively import all image files from your memory card mounted at '/media/EOS_DIGITAL'. dmedia /usr/share/backgrounds --type=image --tag=wallpaper --tag=desktop This will add all image files in the directory '/usr/share/backgrounds' and its subdirectories. The files will be tagged with 'wallpaper' and 'desktop' in the media database. dmedia /usr/share/pixmaps --extension=svg --tag=desktop This will import all icons with the 'svg' file extension from /usr/share/pixmaps. dmedia ~/Videos --type=video --extension=webm This will import all video files in your Videos folder, as well as any file in that folder with the 'webm' extension. Due to being a new file format your system's MIME database may not recognise this format as a video; this will allow the webm files to be imported along with the other video files.
dmedia is at an early state still, but the functionality it has so far should be quite stable. The `dmedia` script will eventually be turned into a VCS-style script with several commands. For now it has a single function, to recursively import media files from a directory. At this point, it's a quick-and-dirty demo of how media files might be stored and how their meta-data might be stored.
