Working with metadata in AVI files

Reading AVI header properties

The GroupDocs.Metadata API supports extracting format-specific information from AVI file headers.

The following are the steps to read the header of an AVI file.

  1. Load an AVI video
  2. Get the root metadata package
  3. Extract  the native metadata package using the AviRootPackage.getHeader method
  4. Read the AVI header properties

try (Metadata metadata = new Metadata(Constants.InputAvi)) {
    AviRootPackage root = metadata.getRootPackageGeneric();

    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getAviHeaderFlags());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getHeight());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getWidth());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getTotalFrames());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getInitialFrames());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getMaxBytesPerSec());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getPaddingGranularity());
    System.out.println(root.getHeader().getStreams());

    // ...
}
