Installation
------------
KnowIt can be installed as a regular python module by running::

$ [sudo] pip install knowit

For a better isolation with your system you should use a dedicated virtualenv or install for your user only using
the ``--user`` flag.


External dependencies
-------------------------
This product uses `MediaInfo <http://mediaarea.net/MediaInfo>`_ library, Copyright (c) 2002-2016 `MediaArea.net SARL<mailto:Info@MediaArea.net>`_

Binaries for Windows and MacOS are included. Linux distributions need to manually install MediaInfo.

KnowIt supports MKV regardless if MediaInfo is installed.
