Mp3 ID3 Tags

What debacle, trying to parse out Mp3 ID3 Tags. There are Id3v1, Id3v2, and then a bunch of other abnormalites. Throw some WMA in there in you really have a mess. Parse it out of the file or shell out and get it from windows explorer, they still are goofed. What I wonder is how WMP10 gets the Album Artist from the CD. Because if you have a various artists cd, the tracks “Album Artist” meta data is all different. Goofy….
