Description (last modified by tobi) (diff)
Besides the general suggestions (1, 2) to use a more up-to-date Java library the current code obviously cannot read ID3v2 tags at all which unfortunately is exactly what most modern music players (e.g. iTunes) are writing in an MP3 file.
I suggest we replace the Java library and rewrite the module code in one of the next releases. I'll add Michi and Maksim as CC recipients as both hinted to the ancient Uberdosis library. Maybe they would be willing to help us improving the module by contributing their knowledge and/or code.
