    node-nde

    Winamp Media Library / Nullsoft Database Engine (NDE) reader

    Use this library to read Winamp's Media Library database. Extract ratings, etc.

    Install

    $ npm i node-nde
    

    Usage

    const path = require('path');
    const NDE = require('node-nde');
    
    const ndeReader = NDE.load('main.dat', 'main.idx');
    
    let library = ndeReader.readAll();

    Note: main.dat and main.idx can be found in Winamp's Plugins\ml folder.

    Example of the result of readAll():

    [
      {
        filename: 'C:\\music\\song.mp3',
        title: 'Title',
        artist: 'Artist',
        year: 1986,
        genre: 'Genre',
        comment: '',
        length: 180, // length in sec
        type: 0,
        lastupd: '2016-01-04T21:47:39.000Z',
        lastplay: '2016-01-14T21:34:09.000Z',
        rating: 3,
        playcount: 32,
        filetime: '2010-11-21T14:37:32.000Z',
        filesize: 0,
        bitrate: 256,
        dateadded: '2016-01-04T21:47:39.000Z'
      },
      ...
    ]

    An entry object may contain these properties:

    filename title artist album year genre comment trackno length type lastupd lastplay rating tuid2 playcount filetime filesize bitrate disc albumartist replaygain_album_gain replaygain_track_gain publisher composer bpm discs tracks ispodcast podcastchannel podcastpubdate GracenoteFileID GracenoteExtData lossless category codec director producer width height mimetype dateadded
    

    What if I don't have an index (.idx) file?

    node-nde can attempt to read the contents of the .dat file if no path to an index file is specified!

    const path = require('path');
    const NDE = require('node-nde');
    
    const ndeReader = NDE.load('main.dat');
    
    let library = ndeReader.readAll();
