Error while importing ID3 metadata from certain MP3 file

Under review

I believe FileRun reads all versions and if multiple versions available it default to v1.

Do you have a sample file for which FileRun does not import available tags?

Yes sure, v1 Tags limited to 28 or 30 characters and i have MP3 with scaning problem, error message:

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: [] operator not supported for strings in ***/httpdocs/system/classes/getid3/module.audio.mp3.php:464

It would be great if you could attach a file or a download link to a file that has this problem. I can't really troubleshoot this without a sample file.


Thank you! I confirm the problem and seems to be limited to PHP 7.2 for some reason. Either way, it will be fixed with the next FileRun update. Thank you for reporting the problem!
