Read ID3 tags from mp3 files

Since there wasn’t anything on reading mp3 tag data for gamma and there was a brief exchange in the Element chat, I thought I’d post a solution here for the future.

I am using GitHub - JeevanJames/Id3: Library to read, modify and write ID3 & Lyrics3 tags in MP3 files. Provides an extensible framework for retrieving ID3 information from online services. this ID3 .NET library by Jeevan James.

You first create “MP3” data from a file and then get the relevant tags, which you can convert to strings and parse a nice looking time string out of quite easily.
