Use input plug-in specs in reverse direction. Eg. call GetFileInfo() to get title, length, etc; title returned by it (in_mp3.dll) depends on title formatting settings from plug-in config. There is no better way (WA3 input plug-ins will support meta-data reading). I suggest that you get ID3 specs and access mp3 files directly instead.

There is a problem: the title is filename.
GetFileInfo() doesn't work... Is there other way ?
