is a multipurpose file viewer for audio, video, images and text.
It is entirely written in Java and runs on a wide range of operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS X, Solaris and Linux.
With MultiShow you can examine a file at multiple levels of abstraction. The high level views show a file as audio, video, image or text. The intermediate level views show the logical structure of the file content. At the lowest level, a binary or textual representation of the file is shown.
MultiShow supports a rich set of data types (see the Readme for details):
Audio: AIFF, GSM, IFF-8SVX, MIDI, MP2, MP3, OGG Vorbis, Sun Audio, Wave Video: AVI, CyberPaint SEQ, IFF-ANIM, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 VOB, QuickTime Movie Image: BMP, FPX, GIF, IFF-ILBM, IFF-PBM, JPEG, MPO, PGM, PNG, PNM, TIFF Interactive: IBM HotMedia Text: HTML, Plain, PDF, RTF Structure: SEQ, Exif, Hex, IFF, JFIF, MP3, MP4, NeoChrome, PNG, QuickTime, RIFF, TIFF, Zip, Jar
MultiShow runs on all operating systems that support Java J2SE 6 applications.
A Java 6 compliant virtual machine is preinstalled on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and on many Unix/Linux operating systems.
Windows users may have to download and install Java from www.java.com, before installing MultiShow.
Use of MultiShow is free.
