Reading Tags From Mp3 Files

1:54 AM
In this post i will show you how to read the Tags like Album,Artist,Song Title,Year etc from mp3 , avi , ogg, Asf, Divx, png etc..

You will need Taglib - Sharp Library for this purpose .

Download the Library : http://download.banshee.fm/taglib-sharp/

you will find taglib-sharp.dll That's what we need.

1. Create a project . Name it something like TagReader
2. Add reference to the taglib-sharp.dll
3. Make a Form look something like  below figure.





Most of the Coding is Understandable so i will put the Whole form's coding.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using TagLib;

namespace TagReadermp3
{
    public partial class frmTagReader : Form
    {
        public frmTagReader()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void btnSelect_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            OpenFileDialog ofd = new OpenFileDialog();
            ofd.Filter = "Mp3 Files | *.mp3";
            if (ofd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
            {
                lblFile.Text = ofd.FileName;
            }

        }

        private void btnRead_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            TagLib.File mp3 = TagLib.File.Create(lblFile.Text);
            lblAlbum.Text = mp3.Tag.Album;
            lblAritst.Text = GetAllStringsFromArrary(mp3.Tag.AlbumArtists,",");   // Tag.AlbumAritst is a string array 
            lblBitsPerMinute.Text = mp3.Tag.BeatsPerMinute.ToString();
            lblComposers.Text = GetAllStringsFromArrary(mp3.Tag.Composers,",");
            lblCopyright.Text = mp3.Tag.Copyright;
            lblGenre.Text = GetAllStringsFromArrary(mp3.Tag.Genres,",");
            lblTitle.Text = mp3.Tag.Title;
            lblTrack.Text = mp3.Tag.Track.ToString();
            lblYear.Text = mp3.Tag.Year.ToString();
            lblLength.Text  = mp3.Properties.Duration.ToString();
        }

        public string GetAllStringsFromArrary(string[] strArray,string strDelimeter)
        {
            string strFinal = string.Empty;

            for (int i = 0; i < strArray.Length ; i++)
            {
                strFinal += strArray[i];

                if (i != strArray.Length - 1)
                {
                    strFinal += strDelimeter;
                }
            }
            return strFinal;
            

        }
    }
}
