Re: How to get Extended File Info


AVFoundation has a higher-level OOP API for this. Look for methods for accessing metadata, and constants defining the various metadata types like Title, Artist, etc.

AudioToolbox, especially Audio File Services (don’t have links but should be able to search docs easily), appear to have this capability.

Looking at the Finder “Get Info” window, for instance for an mp3 file, it displays under the “More Info” tab, the Title, Authors, etc.

How can I get this information programatically?

Thanks a lot
