Nice, are you going to add ID3 v2 support or just v1? v1 has the best compatibility but less flexibility than the v2 standard.

And what about APE tags ? They seems to be more and more used since the MPC popularity grow.

Paranoid_Android>i have VB code to handle reading/writing/removing id3tag 1.x/2.x (up to 2.3) ๐Ÿ˜‰

What about basic WMA tagging?? It shouldnt be that hard to add in, I dont think WMA supports a wide range of tag options.

Oh, that is a bit irritating isnt it! hehe, no biggie, I can just add WMA tag support to my project, but it’s great to hear that ID3 and OGG tagging will be supported.

Another question, will you be able to retrieve the ID3 tags before the file is loaded into FMOD? Because I need ID3 tags before file loading.

ID tags reading is just simple (if you know how to use a hexeditor).
Anyway, I just made MP3 and ogg tags (no special support for Microsofts formats)
If you need any further information, contact me

I dont believe you understood the question, this pertains to the FMOD library. I already have code for reading/writing ID3 tags, but the question was towards FMOD’s future ID3 support.

Could you add a flag to FSOUND_Stream_OpenFile that would bypass everything except for ID3 reading?

Well thought Brett…
Now I am happened another idea. FMod could have another function that returns if a stream is VBR or not. This would be very useful to load streams more quickly. I am using something similar in my application, reading the tag of the mp3. Then it could decide if to use or non FSOUND_MPEGACCURATE.

Dim Accurate as Boolean
Accurate = FSound_File_IsVBR (filename)

If Accurate Then
stream(player) = FSOUND_Stream_OpenFile(FileName, SOUND_MPEGACCURATE + FSOUND_STEREO, 0)
Else
stream(player) = FSOUND_Stream_OpenFile(FileName, SOUND_STEREO, 0)
End If

This would should it works without loading the stream. Or if not, you could let that FMod takes charge automatically of this…

I have written code to extract WMA tags and would gladly contribute it for your use. It turns out that they are much easier to read than ID3v2 and do not require the WMF SDK.
