XScan by M51: XScan.v2.2.6.exe

This software allows you to scan all types of multi-media files. (it can replace the Xlobby scan “advantageously”, it is much more powerful ;)

Here is a brief view of its new possibilities:

Image

(1): Information: Import or export under AMC (Ant Movie Catalogue) different basic data format
(2): Scan to AMC different file type: Module Pictures Scan §2, Module Movies Scan §3, Module Music Scan §4. As the same time of the scan it is possible to recover cover and IPTC data
(3): In particular for movies, pictures. The data importation and cover for the recipe cook, Net Radio, Games is to be managed like a picture scan.
(4): Possibility to export the AMC database in small IPTC cover: Module export §6.5.1, to exchange cover (exchange of recipe cook, movie cover, Game, Radio Net,…) or save data in your pictures. We use AMC as editor of IPTC writer.
(5): Possibility to export Xlobby file to AMC: Module export §6.5.2, in the aim of editing the Xlobby database, or to save under another format.
(6): Possibility to scan files directly to Xlobby while recovering the cover with tag IPTC, EXIF, Tag Windows: Module Scan Pictures §2, Module Scan Movies §3, Module Scan Musics §4.
(7): Possibility to export a AMC file towards Xlobby: Module export §6.5.2.
(8 ): Possibility to build a xlobby database directly using IPTC data
(9): Possibility to export the Xlobby database in IPTC cover: Module export §6.5.1, to exchange cover (of recipe cook, movie cover, Game, Radio Net,…) or of safeguard of information for your pictures

Which formats are recognized by XScan:[/i]

For pictures: jpg, bmp and gif , other formats will not be converted into jpg,
With jpg extension, XScan will be able to recover tags : IPTC, EXIF and Windows

For Videos: Very many formats, which makes it possible to recover the information stored in the video file: MKV, OGM, AVI, DivX, WMV, QuickTime, Real, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DVD (VOB)... (Codecs : DivX, XviD, MSMPEG4, ASP, H.264, AVC...)

For information, it's possible to download a movie cover pack (compatible XScan) in french sorry :wink: but it's interesting to test XScan (the major of cover have an original name tag in English and should be usable with your movies).

Covers available here: [url]http://m51a.free.fr/XlobbyFiles/Pochettes_Xscan/PackN°1_Pochettes_Film.rar[/url]

Hi, no feedback after 3 weeks :(
Anybody used or tested my software ? Even so, I think it's very interisting to scan your media file (particulary your movies ...)

As far as I'm concerned, for me it's mostly because I can achieve all I need with built-in XLobby import functionality, and xAnt/AMC.

Second thing - It's not very clear what this plugin does, probably because of French translation to English. I.e. what does the followin sentence mean? :-)

"Possibility of ordering Xscan in line of order, and of making imports since a hard disk, key USB" ...

:-)

One thing that I understand is that it can import EXIF info from pics, but for the time being, I'm to lazy to tag my pics :-)

this mean, that you can use xscan by command lines ( w/o gui) and you can scan and import your media fron your external hard disc, mp3 player, or usb stick....

you can also try to use it, you will see, you can configure the language and there is also an english documentation inside.

dalanik, xscan is not an alternativ as xant, at all... it's a complement.... ( ie, it can catch video information: format etc....)

later

Can you help with scanning movies to AMC

I have created dummy folders but when I scan I get the following error

N° Node: 10 File: information, Template: offline

Xscan is configured as follows:

Scan Folder: F:
Movies extension Scanned: avi/mov/wmv/ogm/mkv
Covers Folder: D:\Program Files\xlobby\applications\XScan\IPTCCovers
Covers extension Scanned: jpg/bmp/gif
Save As: D:\Program Files\Ant Movie Catalog\Catalogs\sample.amc
Export to AMC Selected

Top Template: Blank (no option available)
Bottom Template: MoviesCoversAMC-Xlobby.xml (as installed - unmodified)
If at first you don't succeed. ask.

Marble_00: Thanks for the offer to link to your site. I am getting away from linking to everything on other sites, as you can probably tell by the way I have set up my googepages...I am trying to get away from deadlinks. Either I am using googlepages to keep my files or a free files host called mediafire.com. I hope this doesn't burn me in the end.
