i am guessing that there are several versions of id3 genres.
the tag in question is "JPop". my mp3 player (coolplayer) can use and reads this genre tag fully, but mirc's $sound().genre doesn't. i presume there are other genres that are missing as well.
will it be updated, or is it an error on my part smile ?

mIRC 6.03 currently only supports the ID3v1 tag. The extension you are mentioning is related to ID3v2 tags. For more information about the ID3 Tag definitions please read this.. Kintar0 made a ID3-Tag Reader which might be useful until a future version of mIRC supports it.

mIRC is using windows media player for playing sounds so i believe WMP is also used for reading the id3 tag from files?


Code:
//if ( khaled isgod ) echo yes | else echo no

I doubt it is, media player would be using ID3v2, which mIRC does not. It appears mIRC reads it itself.

Well I believe media player has function blaaID3read and mirc uses it, which reads only ID3v1 information for backwards compatibility but dunno...

//if ( khaled isgod ) echo yes | else echo no

Unless I missed it, there is no fonction in the Windows Media Player API to get the ID3 of the file. While it's easy to do, mIRC probably uses it's own mechanism to get the ID3 of the files, either with a proprietary algorithm or with one of the several libraries out there to do that.

But someone tell me, why the heck do you play your files through mIRC? The guys at nulllsoft did a great job out of WinAmp, the best music player I know of , and they made it available 100% free smile

I think it's possible in versions 7 and above.

Exactely, i don't see a point in playing mp3's trough mIRC.
