Event.ID3

Listening for ID3 tags in ActionScript 3.0 is slightly different from ActionScript 2.0. In ActionScript 2.0, you used the onID3 event handler to detect when the ID3 information was detected, as seen in the following example:

var url:String = "http://www.helpexamples.com/flash/sound/song1.mp3";
var mp3:Sound = new Sound();
mp3.onID3 = function() {
var songInfo:Object = this.id3;
trace("ID3 loaded");
trace("\t artist: " + songInfo.artist);
trace("\t track: " + songInfo.track);
trace("\t comment: " + songInfo.comment);
trace("\t songName: " + songInfo.songName);
trace("\t album: " + songInfo.album);
trace("\t genre: " + songInfo.genre);
trace("\t year: " + songInfo.year);
}
mp3.loadSound(url, true);

In ActionScript 3.0, you instead use the addEventListener() method and a URLRequest object to load the sound, as seen in the following example:

var url:String = "http://www.helpexamples.com/flash/sound/song1.mp3";
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);
var mp3:Sound = new Sound(request);
mp3.addEventListener(Event.ID3, id3Handler)
mp3.play();

function id3Handler(event:Event):void {
var song:Sound = Sound(event.target);
var songInfo:ID3Info = ID3Info(song.id3);
trace("ID3 loaded");
trace("\t artist: " + songInfo.artist);
trace("\t track: " + songInfo.track);
trace("\t comment: " + songInfo.comment);
trace("\t songName: " + songInfo.songName);
trace("\t album: " + songInfo.album);
trace("\t genre: " + songInfo.genre);
trace("\t year: " + songInfo.year);
}
