Wish: Read ID3v2 tag from mp3 files


Licensed User
hi everybody,

i think it would be great if we had a lib which is able to read the ID3v2 tag from mp3 files to extract the included cover art, band name, song title, genre etc.

I have already started to work on this problem by wrapping the ported version of the MyID3 lib
(website of original version)
(website of android version)

But I am not able to load a file without crashing my test app. When I call "new File(SrcFile)" it throws an exception but I dont know why.

Maybe I could upload the stuff I have done so far and somebody could give me advice?

a better idea would be to wait for someone to make a library to access the media store content provider. Then you don't have to read id3.
