How to read and write ID3 tags in MP3 files

6 posts in this topic

Is it possible to use AutoIt3 to read the ID3 Tags in an MP3 file and also to write to the tags in the mp3 file?

(tag examples are

"Title", "Artist", "Album", "Year", "Track", "Genre", "Comment")

Does anybody know how to do this?

Many thanks for a tip.

I did not find any autoitscript-integrated solution but there is a commandline tool available which will do that:

http://home.wanadoo.nl/squell/id3.html

; For change of album title in ID3v1-Tag
ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "id3.exe", "-1 -l TestalbumV1 " & """" & $Filename & """", @ScriptDir, "open", @SW_HIDE)
; For change of album title in ID3v2-Tag
ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "id3.exe", "-2 -l TestalbumV2 " & """" & $Filename & """", @ScriptDir, "open", @SW_HIDE)

I did that but did not find one which would WRITE the data into ID3v2.

Search for ID3 in the example scripts forum, there are many examples

Thanks for the tip.

I have tested the script

"getID3Tag and setID3Tag" (from Xenobiologist)

and I was able to read and write tags to some MP3s on my machine.
