Could someone give me a more detailed documentation on pymedia or some clues on how to get the information I need ?


AFAIK Pymedia cannot extract ID3 infos from MP3 (altough you can study by
yourself the ID3 format a inspect the raw info of the file), anyway the

web
is full of ID3 tools for python such as:
http://id3-py.sourceforge.net/


Please use this mailing list to get support on pymedia: py***********@lists.sourceforge.net
It will make sure you get the quick response.

The documentation is a little scarce at the moment and I'm working on the tutorial to compensate that.

Here is the code which will give you what you need( from pycar ). It is modified to match what you need and therefore not tested.:

f= open( <file_name>, 'rb' )
dec= acodec.Decoder( <file_extension> )
s= f.read( 20000 )
fr= dec.decode( s )
# Hardcoding for mp3 IDv1 tags
if not dec.hasHeader() and <file_extension>== 'mp3':
f.seek( -128, 2 )
dec= acodec.Decoder( 'mp3' )
dec.decode( f.read( 128 ) )

print dec.getInfo()

Hope this helps.

Good news!

dec= acodec.Decoder( 'mp3' )
dec.decode( f.read( 128 ) )

print dec.getInfo()
I appreciate your support.
I understand that this is a piece of code specially written for fixing my
problem but where could I find such example in pycar ? I looked for Decoder
in the pycar source code (pymedia*-src) and found no match.

Do you include support for tag IDv2 too ?

Hope this helps.
