Hi all,

Is there any way to read properties (like:- title, album) form a MP3 file.

I did a search in java api but did not get any thing relevant.

One option is javax.sound.sampled.AudioFileFormat; but it does not support mp3 file format.

What should i do; any suggestion!

Several libraries for working with ID3 tags are mentioned here:

It's not a secret anymore!
