ID3 Version 1 Audio Metadata parser

A simple streaming parser for retrieving ID3 metadata from an mp3 file.


npm install id3v1-parser


The parser is simply a stream in objectMode, so you can pipe and binary data into it and it will spit out tag objects.

var ID3 = require('id3v1-parser')
  , stream = require('fs').createReadStream('./my-audio.mp3')

var parser = stream.pipe(new ID3());

parser.on('data', function(tag){
    console.log(tag.type)  // => 'artist'
    console.log(tag.value) // => 'Bastille'

use in conjunction with my ID3v2 parser and mpeg frame parser for more data.
