Extracting mp3 metadata

Post icon  Posted 20 November 2006 - 02:17 PM

Hi folks

I have a series of mp3 files that I want to extract the filename and the duration.

It is quite straight forward to extract the filename using the GetFiles method (system.IO).

However, I am having real problems determining the duration.

As I understand it, that info is one component in a collection of metadata.

If somebody could give me a bit of an idea, I would appreciate it (preferably with VB.NET - don't know much about C++ or C#).

Kind regards

Ross

You can find a library at the following link that you can use in VB.NET to retrieve/edit the metadata information, it is free.
