getID3() and DRM

Post by harm » Thu Dec 15, 2005 12:00 pm

Hi, just been testing a little with getID3() on some regular mediafiles and my first impression very positive...

I was wondering if there's any special precautions or got-to-know's concerning DRM media in combination with getID3() ?

I've had very little dealing with DRM files, but from what I've seen (in general) the DRM simply covers the audio/video portion of the file and the metadata is freely parsed as normal.

But please, experiment and share your findings :)

I have done a bit w/ WMV DRM'd files the lib and, to the best I can see, the only difference is you get an "encrypted" flag during analyze. Other than that, all other metadata is as you'd expect.
