Remove an existing ID3 tag (PECL id3:0.1-0.2)
bool id3_remove_tag ( string filename [, int version] )

id3_remove_tag() is used to remove the information stored of an ID3 tag.



The path to the MP3 file

Instead of a filename you may also pass a valid stream resource


Allows you to specify the version of the tag as MP3 files may contain both, version 1.x and version 2.x tags.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example 976. id3_remove_tag() example

= id3_remove_tag( "path/to/example.mp3", ID3_V1_0 );
if (
$result === true) {
"Tag succesfully removed\n";

If the file is writable and contained a 1.0 tag, this will output:

Tag succesfully removed



Currently id3_remove_tag() only supports version 1.0 and 1.1. If you choose to remove a 1.0 tag and the file contains a 1.1 tag, this tag will be removed, as v1.1 is only an extension of 1.0.
