You need to read information about the song, artist, and album from an MP3 file.
Read the ID3v2 tag from the end of the MP3 file.
Most MP3 files store information in a 128-byte ID3v2 tag at the end of the file. This tag starts with the word TAG and contains information about the artist, album, and song title in ASCII encoding. You can convert this data from bytes into a string using the Encoding object returned by the System.Text.Encoding.ASCII property.
The MP3TagData class shown here provides access to MP3 data, and it provides a ReadFromFile method that retrieves the information from a valid MP3 file.
