This part of the documentation covers the installation of GuessIt. The first step to using any software package is getting it properly installed.

Distribute & Pip

Installing GuessIt is simple with pip:

$ pip install guessit

or, with easy_install:

$ easy_install guessit

But, you really shouldn’t do that.

Get the Code

GuessIt is actively developed on GitHub, where the code is always available.

You can either clone the public repository:

git clone git://

Download the tarball:

$ curl -L -o guessit.tar.gz

Or, download the zipball:

$ curl -L -o

Once you have a copy of the source, you can embed it in your Python package, or install it into your site-packages easily:

$ python install

GuessIt is a python library that tries to extract as much information as possible from a file.
