Jaudiotagger for Android

This is Jaudiotagger library for Android. Jaudiotagger is an Audio Tagging library.

This is a pure java library, you can compile the source to JAR file by yourself.

The compiled JAR library works on Android platform, has been tested on API level 14 and above.


The source code is based on Jaudiotagger library version 2.2.6.

Jaudiotagger library version 2.2.6 is build on JDK 1.8 and uses lots of nio features, which are not compatible with Android version lower than API level 26.

This Jaudiotagger library changes all incompatible parts with compatible API calls, which can compile and run on Android API level 14 and above.
