Mp3 Meta Data / ID Tags

Post by Sk8cynic »

Hi,

Is there some way to force the MMB player to load and display only the music filename in a list box? I have several mp3 files that display the ID v2 or IDv3 tags instead of the file name of the song. I can strip out the meta data in the mp3 files but it's a pain to keep doing that. Right now, I use a third party utility to strip the ID tag data so only the filename like "MySong.mp3" shows in the list box instead of the album title, track #, or some other data that I don't need or want to see. The "Search for ID Tags" checkbox is unchecked in the List Box dialogue window, but I've tried it both ways to no avail.

I would like to know if there is some way to do this natively, hopefully without a plugin. There was another post in this forum about this but I wasn't sure about the information. I could not find any info about this in the MMB samples, other examples or help file.

Here is the code I'm using to load the list box items:

ListBoxGetSelectedItems("SongList","Items$,ItemsNum$,#,NumItems")
For i=1 To NumItems
t$ = GetArrayItem(Items$,#,i)
numitem$ = GetArrayItem(ItemsNum$,#,i)
SongListPlay("VAL(numitem$)")
LoadText("Text18","STRING:t$")
Next i

Thanks for any help.

This always load filename for me if you uncheck Search For ID Tags on ListBox (SongList) Object Properties

Code: Select all

mp3dir$=CBK_OpenDir
If (mp3dir$ <> '') Then
  SearchForFiles("mp3dir$","mp3")
  ListBoxAddItem("SongList","RESET")
  ListBoxAddItem("SongList","<List>")
  ListBoxSortItems("SongList","NAME")
  SongListReset()
  ListBoxGetItems("SongList","<List>")
End
