A comma-separated list of the types of barcodes that might appear in the ingested media. The following types are available:

  • Codabar
  • Code-128

  • Datalogic 2/5
  • Data Matrix

EAN-2 and EAN-5 supplement other barcodes (EAN-13, EAN-8, UPC-E, and UPC-A). Media Server does not read EAN-2 and EAN-5 barcodes unless they appear alongside one of these types. For example, to read EAN-13 barcodes that have an EAN-2 supplement, set BarcodeTypes=EAN-13,EAN-2.


Some types of barcode are a subset of other types.

All All supported types.
All1D All one-dimensional types.
All2D All two-dimensional types.
