Description

I have some mp3 files with embedded tag information like Artist, Album and Track Title.
But sadly MPlayer seems currently not to be able to read these meta data out.
It would be great, if you could add support for it.

Also it would be great, if MPlayer could display cover images, which are embedded into files like wma, mp3, etc.

Well, any response?

Is this the right place for my request?

I wasn't sure about, which component I should choose.

IMO MPlayer is unsuitable to handle embedded picture.
Apart from that, MP3 ID3 information should be supported, try adding -identify to the commandline (though I think that information is printed even without it, it might just be hard to find among all the output).

I have defined tags like Album, Interpret, Track Title and they will not be displayed.

Works fine for me, output is e.g.:

$ mplayer Nightwish\ -\ Away.mp3
[...]
Audio file file format detected.
Clip info:

Title: Away
Artist: Nightwish
Album:
Year:
Comment:
Genre: Blues

You will have to provide some more detail, e.g. a sample file or full MPlayer output, otherwise there is no way we can help, after all it seems to work fine for me.

Artist: Artist 1
Album: Whatever

  • Summary changed from Meta data: ID3-Tags and pictures to Meta data: support ID3v2-Tags and pictures

Ah, that explains it. The tag you added is a ID3v2 tag, MPlayer only supports ID3v1. Though you can use -demuxer lavf as a work-around.

Great that we have figured that out now! :)
And thanks for the little workaround. Works fine!

Btw: Is ID3v2 already planned for a future version?

i think most of the devs agree that id3v2 is an abortion and will not be supported.

i think was in reply to a patch for id3v2 support, if you want to apply it to your local tree...
