MediaConch is an extensible, open source software project consisting of an implementation checker, policy checker, reporter, and fixer that targets preservation-level audiovisual files (specifically Matroska, Linear Pulse Code Modulation (LPCM) and FF Video Codec 1 (FFV1)) for use in memory institutions, providing detailed and batch-level conformance checking via an adaptable and flexible application program interface accessible by the command line, a graphical user interface, or a web-based shell. Media Conch also provides a tool for creating own policies.

User Experiences

  • Media Conch runs fast and the output of the implementation and policy checker is not extensive but consits of useful information.
  • The tool for creating own policies provides a lot of options and cases but the usage of this tool is complex and presupposed detailed knowledge of the different file formats.
  • The documentation for build Media Conch from source code under Windows is more than bad, because documentation it simply indicates to use Visual Studio.
