'grep' does wonders for pulling info out of files
   grep '^title=' chapters.txt

(return all lines that start with "title=")
all *nix and the mac should have grep, windoze doesn't unless you installed 
it yourself

Or use mediainfo, which allows you to easily specify what data you want and 
how it's formatted.
