The ID3Tag.Core is a library to read ID3v1 and ID3v2 Tags from .mp3 files. This library supports .Net 4.0, 4.5, 4.6 and .NetStandard 2.0.

Current Status

The Library is ready to build but still needs improvements(i am currently working on). Also not every Frame is implemented. Will add them in the next update.


To simply retrieve informations from you .mp3 file you can use this library as shown below:

ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v1Parser reader = new ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v1Parser();
//ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v2Parser reader = new ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v2Parser();
ID3Tag.Core.ID3TagObject resp = reader.Read("test.mp3");
if (resp != null)

If you want to read not implemented frames (e.g. the attached picture) you can call the following method:

ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v2Parser reader = new ID3Tag.Core.TagParser.ID3v2Parser();
ID3Tag.Core.ID3TagObject resp = reader.Read("test.mp3");
if (resp != null)
    Console.WriteLine("Test: " + resp.GetFrameValue("APIC"));
