Read MP3 chapters

Post by gerritvanaaken » Tue Nov 20, 2012 4:48 pm

In the podcasting space, more and more software solutions support chapters in media files. ID3 has a chapters module:
http://id3.org/id3v2-chapters-1.0
Would be great if this could be - at least - readable by getid3()

Thanks for considering this idea.

Can you provide a sample file with chapter data in the ID3v2 tag, please?

I have an active interest in this feature as well. Writing and reading chapter marks would be awesome!

This podcast for example uses extensivly Chaptermarks: http://trojaalert.bildungsangst.de/

A MP3 File with these marks can be found here: http://trojaalert.bildungsangst.de/podl ... lfahrt.mp3

Thanks a lot

Tim

Thanks a lot! It seems to me, this code is only for reading CHAP-frames or can I use it to write chapter markers too?

Reading only. There are no plans to add any more writing support to getID3.
