With 'VLC', Metadata can be read out and modified, and furthermore it's all implemented in the

A last post to close the issue.

After some testing with this and that among those wonderful solutions you gave me I have finally decided to use ... none of them :)

Since I'm using sox as my "play-engine", what I'm doing instead is take the laziest route and just parse the output of "soxi -a". Crude, primitive, but it works ;)

Thanks again to all. This thread goes to my personal archive and will doubtless be perused for reference when(/if) I build the full fledged player.
