You cannot.
You need to decode the .mp3.. and vb is not fast enough.
You need a .dll that was compiled from c or c++ or something.
Now the .mp3 itself has the header info in the last 128 bytes
(I think 128..look at an .mp3 in a hex editor and you will see
it) (you can open .mp3 for binary to read it too)
Sorry but thats the way it is.

yes, you can read the header!
You waited long time for the real answer.

Download Example here:
selnes.net/test.zip

Only one limit to the code: It does not suport the new idtag 2.0

Best regards
