Getting ID3 tags from Streaming URL

Hello everybody,

I am trying to make a Stream Music player application that you can play the mp3s from your dropbox account on stream. But DropboxAPI doesnt give you ID3 information as metadata . So i need to find a way to get the ID3 informations like artist and song name so i can list the files on the screen.

I tried MediaMetadataRetriever class , but it always gave Illegel argument exception for URI, and i tried also different URLs from different websites ,still result is the same.

So can you suggest an alternative way to get the ID3 tags of a Mp3 file from a stream URL.

Thank you in advance for your help
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
