Flex/AS3 and FMS getting id3 info from mp3′s
There was a question on the FlashMedia mailing list about how to get id3 info from a NetStream with AS3 code. It is actually just like AS2 with some quirks to watch out for. The first is the supported ID3 tags:
About supported versions of ID3 tags
Flash Media Server supports playback of ID3 text tags in UTF-8, UTF-16, and ISO-8859-1 formats and supports ID3 versions 1.0, 2.3, and 2.4. Only tags that contain text data are supported, such as song title, artist name, comments, and year recorded.
I had a mp3 with ID3 v2.2 tags that did not work until I put in a v1.0 ID3 tag.
The next is the NetStream is not dynamic in AS3 and you use the client property to handle method calls from the server. There will be a onPlayerStatus and onId3 method call the server makes on the NetStream object.
