Music Files

Recommended Posts


Hey guys. I'm in the process of making a new AutoIt App but i've ran into a problem.

You see in my app i plan to use .mp3 files and most mp3 files have more than just a file name.

If you right click a music file, click properties then hit the "Summary" tab then click "Advanced" You will see artist information.

Now how would i go about getting this information into an autoit Variable/Array? i cant see anything in the help files =(

Any help at all is apreciated.
