I was hoping that HollyAmp would have the answer to my missing ID3 tag information but it suffers with the same problem.

I would have thought it would contain some code to deal with missing metadata.


Not sure how to deal with this issue. I just feel so close to being able to release the software, but still so far away.

Of course HollyAmp has the same issue because it's the same code :)

If you need a stable ID3 parser, you need to read some documentation about the ID3 tag format and then improve the code. HollyAmp's ID3 parser is really just meant as a starting point...

Hi

I know it's been a while but any joy with getting the implementation from your HD?

Thank you for assisting.

There are still many things I haven't implemented: Playlist, some mp3s don't load, and loading of covertart that is saved in the same folder as the audio track.

When coverart is placed in the root directory it loads ok

Much more work is still needed.

Thanks for any assist you can give.

Hi 1Mouse!
I've found it, it lacks completely the docs so if you can wait a couple of days I will create the documentation and I'll make some quick tests to ensure that it is still working, then I'll publish it.

It can read many tags, including embedded art, it recognizes id3 v1 and v2.

Looking at the code, I started to parse the lyrics (if any) but it is not completed, I'll leave it out for this first public release.

Hi 1Mouse!
Interesting project your E.M.M.A. machine :)

Have a look here for the ID3Tag library.

If you have any question just ask!

Hi,

I've emailed my code to you.

As long as the artwork is in the same folder as the exec then the artwork should be displayed for that MP3 file.

I have now included a little boing ball in the bottom right, this is the info button.
