It would be fine if the MediaPlayer would be support/show ID3 tags for the files. For example over the track-bar it would show the artist and the title if available. And on the information window it can show all available ID3 tags.

I'm using 45341 nightly.

In BeOS/Haiku, the preferred solution was/is to copy the id3 tag data into BFS attributes.

There is a tool called ArmyKnife that can do this for a large number of files at a time.

If you're using a non-BFS filesystem to read the mp3s from, then there might be an issue (for example, I keep my collection of MP3 on my NAS) - so an alternative to read them if there's no attributes available could still be useful. Not sure if MediaPlayer really knows anything about the file it's playing though - as the MediaKit generally handles that aspect.
