Re: Default plugins in libextractor

A follow-up question :

When I did `sudo apt-get install libflac-dec`, my code gave this output for a .flac file - 44100 Hz, 2 channels audio/flac
And when I did `sudo apt-get remove libflac-dev`, the code still gives the same output.
Also, pkg-config --cflags libflac-dev cannot find the package after installing(is this relevant?)

Does libextractor needs to be build again after a new library(dependency) is added?
Why is it able to extract data even when a dependency is not present?

Thank you

Hi all,

I am new to libextractor and was wondering does libextractor has any inbuilt plugins? or does it always rely on some external library to extract metadata.
If the latter is true, is it possible that if none of the optional dependencies is installed than libextractor won't be able to extract any data?

And is there a list where I can find which format is supported by which plugin?( I want to add test to my program and check what if plugin for a format is not present).

Thanks in advance
