Getting info from the MP3 Tag

Hi,
Is it possible to grab content from the MP3 Tags ie. album art, song title, artist, etc. and display them on the screen? I am sure this is possible, but I haven't run across sample code for this..

I am not looking for hand-holding just point me in the right direction and I will go do the research..

Thank you

Re: Getting info from the MP3 Tag

The Roku Video Player generally reads its meta-data from external XML feeds. Though there can be meta-data stored in mp3 tags, the Roku doesn't use it.

There are programs out there that can read the mp3 tags, and this might help you create XML feeds for your mp3 files.

Re: Getting info from the MP3 Tag

I just wanted to let you know that we've talked about this idea internally, and we believe this would be a good feature to add... We've added it to our list of feature requests, and will get to it as part of our commitment to continually improve the SDK.

Thanks for the great feedback!
