A easy wrapper for mutagen

Project Description


This package originates from the file beets/ of the beets project.

Handles low-level interfacing for files’ tags. Wraps Mutagen to automatically detect file types and provide a unified interface for a useful subset of music files’ tags.


From Github

git clone
cd phrydy
python install

From PyPI

pip install phrydy
easy_install phrydy


>>> from phrydy install MediaFile
>>> f = MediaFile('Lucy.mp3')
>>> f.title
u'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds'
>>> f.artist = 'The Beatles'

A field will always return a reasonable value of the correct type, even if no tag is present. If no value is available, the value will be false (e.g., zero or the empty string).

Internally MediaFile uses MediaField descriptors to access the data from the tags. In turn MediaField uses a number of StorageStyle strategies to handle format specific logic.
