TagLib doesn't have explicit support for streams, but a lot of its
features could be used on streams. For instance, if you wanted to read
an ID3v2 tag you could subclass ID3v2::Tag and reimplement the
constructor / read() (they're both very short functions) and it would work.

This list is fine for those sorts of questions.
