    MP3 File Information

    Hi

    Does anyone have any links to a website with MP3 file information. Such as how to retrieve ID3 tags, Bitrate, and Track Length etc??

    I've been searching around for some time now and can't seem to find any.

    Any help/tips appreciated!
    Marc

    I don't know of a site, but I did just what you're asking. It is simple to figure out by looking at the data in the MP3 file (like in wordpad, for example). The data is near the end of the file. The way I did it was to count backward a certain number of bytes from the end of the file and read each field. Give that a shot and see what you come up with.

    Any search of "file format" should have worked

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
