I didn't get Fruppes in any of my original searches, I will give that a
try, and I have tried the module/wrapper for MediaInfo but have to wait
for a bug fix as it does not work correctly with 64bit Linux. At least
not with Python 2.6, and I am reluctant to upgrade to Python 3 due to
compatibility issues.
