TagLib is a library for reading and editing the meta-data of several popular audio formats. Currently it supports both ID3v1 and ID3v2 for MP3 files, Ogg Vorbis comments and ID3 tags and Vorbis comments in FLAC files.
It is written in modern C++, very fast (about 6 times faster than id3lib and 3 times faster than libvorbisfile at reading tags) and does not have any external dependency.
