Re: online demo not working
There are two PDF plugins, one that is quite

simplistic and another one based on code from

xpdf (which has a bad security track record).

Depending on which one I happen to enable on the

website (options to configure), you get more or

less information for PDF files.

Re: Also Requires gobject-2.0
Note that as of 0.5.3 LE still needs gobject-2.0 but the
ordinary shared version will do fine now.

Re: Also Requires gobject-2.0
Well, gobject-2.0 is part of glib, so it is listed as a
dependency. What is more tricky is that we need the
static, relocatable version of the library -- but try to specify
that on freshmeat :-).

Also Requires gobject-2.0
Can't seem to get the OLE2 libraries to compile, make complains:

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.3/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lgobject-2.0

Oh, and you may want to include these dependencies within either the README or INSTALL files.

just care about AVI and MPEG, the
avinfo tool provides
is a bit more information for these kinds of files compared
to libextractor.
