All of the above are on the wishlist for future versions of getID3().

Shorten, Bonk, Matroska and SV6 are likely to be in v1.6.3.

I've looked and asked, but I still have absolutely no idea how to differentiate between an MP3 file an MP3pro file, so if anyone has documentation to that effect, please tell me how: info@getid3.org

I also have no documentation on AC-3 file format, if someone wants to point me in the right direction that would speed up me adding support to getID3()...

what about incorporating EXIF data support to the existing image file scripts?

EXIF data from JPEG files is read by the PHP function exif_read_data(), if available in your installation of PHP.

I'd like to add my voice to this request.

I use getID3() to support posting of MOV and WMV videos into our video manager application - as FLV video is a rapdily emerging video format standard we'd like to start using it, but can't until getID3() supports it.

Any plans to include this, or a timeframe? Anything I can do to help? :)

Please, Please, Please include support for .flv files. I use getid3 to identify file types and load the correct players for video files and I really want to include .flv's. Right now I cannot (or I will have to go through hell to do it) as it stands right now.

Thanks in advance,

FLV support seems to be bugged.

For most of the modules in the system, there is a 12 byte buffer read in through module main constructor as it looks for the index/metadata to be ready.

For FLV it actually loads the entire file looking for data.

$FLVfileData = fread($fd, $ThisFileInfo['avdataend'] - $ThisFileInfo['avdataoffset']);

Anyone else notice this bug? Is there a fix?

flv fixes

Post by sethk » Tue Apr 04, 2006 11:09 pm

I'm working on fixes for various issues with FLV support, including the file loading issue, parse performance and support for On2 video in FLV (Flash 8 video).

An updated module will be submitted soon.

Support for MS Office, PDF, URL

Post by rugges » Sat Apr 22, 2006 4:15 pm

I am using a version of ccHost which utilizes get ID3 for parsing file types. My implementation of ccHost is called teacherhost and is designed for teachers to be able to share instructional materials (mostly PDFs, MS Office file types, .txt, .rtf, html and urls) is this sort of support in getID3 possible/plausible or would it be easier to bypass getID3 altogether?

unlike other versions of ccHost like ccmixter ...we have little need for live media streaming but have a great need to be able to evaluate lesson plans, tests, quizzes, and URLs and other documents before downloading.

Thanks for any input here.

PDFs, Office Documents (as a whole, not specific types) and URLs are all very simple (near-trivial) to identify (getID3 v1.7.7 will identify, but not really parse, PDF and Office documents). Text, RTF and HTML are harder to identify, since their content is very flexible (RTF and HTML are both specialized types of text files -- how much HTML has to be in a text file for it to stop being "text" and start being HTML?, etc).

mp4 video support

Post by filmo » Wed Dec 20, 2006 3:22 am

This is now desperately needed as the popularity of this format is exploding.

Particularly H.264 in either 'mov', 'mp4', 'm4v' containers. (I think Playstation also uses a mp4 container as well, but not as familiar with that.)

Seems to 'sort of' work with Quicktime 'mov' files containing H.264 provided that you disable the 'stts' atom and allocate plenty of memory.

By 'sort of', I mean that it will at least report the correct file length, bit-depth, and audio information. Doesn't report the codec.
