Alright, so, I have this project in my advanced C++ class for which I have chosen to create a simple audio player (if i get that done, video is a possiblity)

I have a GUI already laid out and Im using an embedded WMP as the process bar/start/stop/pause/next, all that good stuff.

My problem is now that I have to read in an audio file and get the tags off it so I can fill in my Artist/Song/Album labels, and create an accurate playlist if the user chooses to do so.

Basically I need help reading the Artist/Song Title/anything off the tag on the audio file to strings. Any ideas? I can't seem to find help anywhere :(

Hello dave, some mp3 files come with an id3 tag, if I recall. But it is by no means reliable and the mp3 is not guaranteed to have it.
