Mp3 files encode their metadata (artist, song title, etc.) in ID3 tags.
Note: ID3v1 and ID3v2 are seperate tags formats.
This tag format is well documented at the site for the open source c/c++ id3lib library, which I strongly recommend over any other tag library.
MyID3 is a pure-Java library that can read & write ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags.
Although not yet version 1.0, MyID3 is working. I've tested it with a wide variety of mp3s.
It is Open Source; free as in freedom and free as in beer.
Full support for .m4a/.aac/.mpa files coming soon.
What's New in This Release:В· Improved the project and package structure.
В· Improved error handling throughout library.
В· Added many unit tests.
В· Fixed a bug around malformed UTF-16 text values.
В· Complete rewrite of id3v2 frame-to-metadata mapping. Added support for many more frames (types of id3v2 metadata). Improved support for semi-numeric types like year, track number, etc.
В· Fixed long standing issue around year metadata.
В· Added strict (don't ignore warnings & errors) mode.
В· Removed the dependency on sharedlib. Library now has only two dependencies, Apache Jakarta Regexp and JUnit. JUnit is only necessary for running the unit test suite.
System Requirements:В· Java
