Difficulties reading tags from "Grip" CD ripper so

Post by jesperkp » Wed Sep 06, 2006 12:48 pm

I am writing a small home application so my daughters can easily access our music. It runs using getID3() 2.0.0b3

Some of the older files have tags that are not padded with "null" which gives iconv a problem. The result is that the data cant be sent to my backend database.

When running the demo.browse.php script on my files is states in the warning field:

Some ID3v1 fields do not use NULL characters for padding\niconv()
was unable to convert the string: \'\'0\'\' from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8

Any ideas of how to fix this problem? (short of rescanning my cd's)

And thanks for a great project that makes it alot easier for us "home brewers".

The missing padding and the iconv warning are probably not related at all.

I get the iconv error on several test files too, especially asf/wma. I am not sure why, but will hopefully fingure it out before 2.0.0 final.

However, the two error messages are only warnings. getID3() should return all information including other tag info.
