Preserving MP3 Header Info In PHP download

P: 2
I have created an MP3 download app from mysql. It plays the song fine. :)

Only problem is that when it downloads, all the header information, like song lyrics, credits and album cover have all disappeared. :mad: When I open the file in a text editor, the information is there, but there's lots of whitespace between it and the top of the file. Here' my php header stuff, data0 is the file data.

$data0 = base64_decode($d);
//$data1 =header("Content-type: application/force-download")."\n";
$data1 .=header("Content-type: audio/mpeg;\r\n");
$data1 .=header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".$title."\"")."\n";
$data1 .=header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
$data1 .=header("Content-Length: ".strlen($d)."")."\n";
$data2 = $data1.trim($data0);
echo$data2;


How do I preserve the header info so that it is recognizable by mp3 players? :confused:

Any thoughts?

For anyone who cares, I figured it out.

Just remove the line breaks... \n

Duh.
