Hello, I'm a fair n00b at this and can't get the most basic functions to work.

At the mo, I've got file j.mp3 inside every folder of the root directory and running demo.basic.php generates this error in ie:

Code: Select all

Array ( [error] => Array ( [0] => "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\phpmp3\getid3-1.7.8b1\getid3\..GETID3_OS_DIRSLASHhelperapps" cannot be defined as GETID3_HELPERAPPSDIR because it does not exist ) ) 
My code inside demo.basic.php is:

Code: Select all

/// getID3() by James Heinrich <>               //
//  available at                 //
//            or                         //
//                                                             //
// /demo/demo.basic.php - part of getID3()                     //
// Sample script showing most basic use of getID3()            //
// See readme.txt for more details                             //
//                                                            ///

// include getID3() library (can be in a different directory if full path is specified)

// Initialize getID3 engine
$getID3 = new getID3;

$filename = "j.mp3";

// Analyze file and store returned data in $ThisFileInfo
$ThisFileInfo = $getID3->analyze($filename);

// Optional: copies data from all subarrays of [tags] into [comments] so
// metadata is all available in one location for all tag formats
// metainformation is always available under [tags] even if this is not called

// Output desired information in whatever format you want
// Note: all entries in [comments] or [tags] are arrays of strings
// See structure.txt for information on what information is available where
// or check out the output of /demos/demo.browse.php for a particular file
// to see the full detail of what information is returned where in the array
echo @$ThisFileInfo['comments_html']['artist'][0]; // artist from any/all available tag formats
echo @$ThisFileInfo['tags']['id3v2']['title'][0];  // title from ID3v2
echo @$ThisFileInfo['audio']['bitrate'];           // audio bitrate
echo @$ThisFileInfo['playtime_string'];            // playtime in minutes:seconds, formatted string


Anyone know what im doing wrong there?

I think it is the same bug as mentioned here:

Try using 1.7.7 instead.
