Default ID3 tags in Audio Files


see <http://3stepsbehind.de/zip/ID3V23TagReader.rexx>

Never used it, but might get you started.

Here's another link that requires a 3rd party ActiveX dll (free). The
code is in VBScript, but easily converted to ooRexx.

In Message-ID:<45d71974$1@news.greennet.net>,

EXIFTOOL extracts data from a *large* number of file formats,
including MP3. Here is the list of ID3 tags it supports:

Album AlbumSortOrder Artist ArtistURL Band BeatsPerMinute Comment
CommercialURL Compilation Composer Conductor Copyright
CopyrightURL Date EncodedBy EncoderSettings EncodingTime FileOwner
FileRUL FileType Genre Grouping ISRC InitialKey
InternetRadioStationName InternetRadioStationOwner

OriginalReleaseTime OriginalReleaseYear PartOfSet PaymentURL
PerformerSortOrder Picture PlayCounter PlaylistDelay
ProducedNotice Publisher PublisherURL RecordingDates RecordingTime
ReleaseTime SetSubtitle Size SourceURL Subtitle TaggingTime
TermsOfUse Time Title TitleSortOrder Track UserDefinedText
UserDefinedURL Year

The tool is about a 2MB download and the output is parsable
ASCII (among other possibilities).

You can try for it at

BTW, I noticed that the duration can be wildly wrong, at
least with VBR MP3s. This seems to be a "feature", based on my
reading of the product's discussion board.

I made the mistake or running my program (which uses EXIFTOOL) against a
directory containing 244 mp3 files. It took too long. So I went looking
for something faster, and found mp3info. It seemed to find track
durations that EXIFTOOL missed, so I've now dual-pathed my code.

As an intellectual exercise I started decoding the ID3 tags in pure
rexx, but then I was no better than EXIFTOOL - I couldn't find all the
durations either. I knew they were there, somewhere, as Windows Media
Player was displaying all of the durations.

There's a lot of tools out there called MP3INFO. Which one
are you using?

Yes, the website acknowledges that fact:
