Full description 'TagLib' is a library for reading and edit'TagLib' is a library for reading and editing the metadata of several popular audio formats. It supports ID3v1 and ID3v2 for MP3 files, Ogg Vorbis comments and ID3 tags, and Vorbis comments in FLAC files. Tests have shown it to be 6 times faster than id3lib and 3 times faster than libvorbisfile at reading tags (CPU time). It supports Unicode. TagLib offers an abstraction layer that makes it easy to ignore the differences between the different file formats and their implementations. It uses KDE-style programming conventions and C++ by default, but it does not link to either Qt or Glib (it has no external dependancies at all) and does provide Glib-style C bindings (currently for the generic API only).ings (currently for the generic API only).
