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


Get the title for a music object.

Header File

Defined in SDL_mixer.h


const char* Mix_GetMusicTitleTag(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 "".


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

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

Unlike this function, Mix_GetMusicTitle() produce a string with the music's filename if a title isn't available, which might be preferable for some applications.

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.
