Dear Members,


Is there a way  to use TagLib by passing a buffer ( representing the music)
rather than passing a file path ?

(in my case it’s a restricted case as it is only a ID3v2 Tag.


I am looking into the code, but I don’t know where to begin, should I
investigate the TagLib::ID3v2::Tag class ( but as to use it properly it
needs a TagLib::File* ..)  ?


Hi Thomas,

TagLib v1.8 (not yet released, see github master) supports IOStream. You can
extend the IOStream class to support your buffer and then TagLib will handle
