tinytag is a library for reading music meta data of MP3, OGG, OPUS, MP4, M4A, FLAC, WMA and Wave files with python.
- Read tags, length and IDv3 cover images of music files
- supported formats
- MP3 (ID3 v1, v1.1, v2.2, v2.3+)
- pure python
- supports python 2.6+ and 3.2+
- is tested
- Just a few hundred lines of code (just include it in your project!)
tinytag only provides the minimum needed for reading MP3, OGG, OPUS, MP4, M4A, FLAC, WMA and Wave meta-data.
It can determine track number, total tracks, title, artist, album, year, duration and more.
from tinytag import TinyTag tag = TinyTag.get('/some/music.mp3') print('This track is by %s.' % tag.artist) print('It is %f seconds long.' % tag.duration)
List of possible attributes you can get with TinyTag:
tag.album # album as string tag.albumartist # album artist as string tag.artist # artist name as string tag.audio_offset # number of bytes before audio data begins tag.bitrate # bitrate in kBits/s tag.disc # disc number tag.disc_total # the total number of discs tag.duration # duration of the song in seconds tag.filesize # file size in bytes tag.genre # genre as string tag.samplerate # samples per second tag.title # title of the song tag.track # track number as string tag.track_total # total number of tracks as string tag.year # year or data as string
Additionally you can also get cover images from ID3 tags:
tag = TinyTag.get('/some/music.mp3', image=True) image_data = tag.get_image()
