Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

Use the ffmetadata npm module for reading/writing files properties.

Following is the example from ffmetadata npm site.

var ffmetadata = require("ffmetadata");

// Read song.mp3 metadata"song.mp3", function(err, data) {
    if (err) console.error("Error reading metadata", err);
    else console.log(data);

// Set the artist for song.mp3
var data = {
  artist: "Me",
ffmetadata.write("song.mp3", data, function(err) {
    if (err) console.error("Error writing metadata", err);
    else console.log("Data written");

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
