Plugins for Where Is It?
Starting with version 2.00, the program implements the Description API, a special programming interface that allows developing plugins separately from the rest of the program. Plugins handle advanced tasks in the process of scanning a media, such as extracting and providing the program with descriptions or thumbnails that will be stored in a catalog. Anybody with sufficient programming skills to develop a regular DLL library, in any programming language, can extend WhereIsIt's description and thumbnails importing capabilities by providing the program with a new plugin. If you have a description or thumbnail source that WhereIsIt can not use at this time, for example, a text file in a non-supported format, you can write your own plugin that will process such files and allow WhereIsIt to automatically import descriptions from that source.
