Metadata extraction using the Bitzi libraries
python-bitzi is a wrapper around the Bitcollider library from Bitzi. It allows you to extract metadata from different types of files. Using this library you can get the bitprint (tiger tree + sha1), md5, song length, song bit rate, image dimensions.
You can think of Bitzi as the “card catalog” for the heavenly jukebox, holding information about any and every media file that is ever reported to them, not just the files available on the web, or through any particular service, or through any particular sharing/distribution network.
Developers of file sharing networks should find this extension useful.
