Read and write greek char's in the mp3-file's TAG-data?

Post by larshgf » Tue Nov 01, 2005 7:18 pm

Hi,

This is a kind of program-technical question, which i hope that one of the porgrammers of MM might have an answer to:

The last 128 bytes of an mp3-file is for the TAG-data (Title, Artist, Album etc). I made a little Delphi program now manage to read and write greek directories and filenames without problems. But I would like to be able to read and write greek characters in the last 128 bytes of each mp3 file so its possible to see the TAG-data in greek letters. It's no problem if it is ordinary english characters. I have installed som unicode components in my Delphi2005 Editor, and using unicode technic - how do I "translate" each byte to a greek character which I can write and read from the mp3.file's TAG-data section??

Best Regards
Lars

This is only true if you are using ID3v1 tags. You probably need to consult a Delphi forum about reading the greek characters.

Depends on your settings. The default is ID3v1 and ID3v2 I think.

When the MM program creates a TAG with foreign charcters - how is this acomplished? Many TAG-editors supports unicode and thereby foreign charcters.
Normally the last 128 bytes in the mp3 files are used to the TAG-data. Is this also the case in MM if we talk about the default v1 version?
I do not need to know anything specifically on Delphi programming because I have the methods in Delphi which can tackle the unicode problems. All I want to know is if all the TAG-data in a v1 MP3-file can be contained in the last 128 bytes of the file.?

Best Regards
Lars

Yes, it wouldn't be ID3v1 if it wasn't at the end.
