(This function is part of SDL_mixer, a separate library from SDL.)


Get the title for a music object, or its filename.

Header File

Defined in SDL_mixer.h


const char* Mix_GetMusicTitle(const Mix_Music *music);

Function Parameters

music the music object to query, or NULL for the currently-playing music.

Return Value

Returns the music's title if available, or the filename if not, or "".


This returns format-specific metadata. Not all file formats supply this!

If music is NULL, this will query the currently-playing music.

If music's title tag is missing or empty, the filename will be returned. If you'd rather have the actual metadata or nothing, use Mix_GetMusicTitleTag() instead.

Please note that if the music was loaded from an SDL_IOStream instead of a filename, the filename returned will be an empty string ("").

This function never returns NULL! If no data is available, it will return an empty string ("").


This function is available since SDL_mixer 3.0.0.
