From the MediaConch website:

"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."

MediaConch can be used to create policies for any kind of media format, and is not limited to MKV/FFV1/LPCM.

User Experiences

  • Daniel:
    • MediaConch runs fast and the output of the implementation and policy checker is not extensive but consists 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 MediaConch from source code under Windows is more than bad, because documentation it simply indicates to use Visual Studio.
