FLAC metadata format

Post by cvogel »


Max is brilliant.

I have a quesion about tags in FLAC.

Are they ID3 tags ?

Are they "FLAC tags" and "Vorbis comments" ?

I want to try and extract them from a Processing sketch, but we only have an ID3 Tag Reader library...

More often than not FLAC contains vorbis comments, although it is possible to have a FLAC file with an ID3v1 or ID3v2 tag (or even all three).
