ID3 Processing Library Clip to Evernote


The ID3 Processing library allows you read the ID3v1.1 tags from MP3 files. If you want to know more about ID3 tags check the page.


import jorgecardoso.processing.id3.*;

void setup() {
ID3 id3 = new ID3(this);


println("Song: " + id3.songTitle);
println("Artist: " + id3.artist);
println("Album: " + id3.album);
println("Comment: " + id3.comment);
println("Year: " + id3.year);
println("Track:" + id3.track);
println("Genre: " + id3.genre);

Download and Install

Just download the file and unpack it to the "libraries" folder of your Processing installation folder. Your "libraries" folder should look something like this:

-- (other libraries)
-- ID3
-- library
-- ID3.jar
-- javadoc


This is almost unnecessary, but here are the javadocs of the ID3 library anyway :)

You can also take a look at the source code (it's only one java file).

Contact (bug reports, comments, etc)

If you use this library in a project, drop me a line. I like to know this stuff, and I'll link to your project's website. Also if you find a bug or need help, let me know.
