What I want to do is not get the information about the file but I want to read the bits and also be able to locate bits positions within the frame header. The header is 32 bits (4 bytes) of which is what I want to get back or displayed as a message.

I want to read it, edit it. The bit i want to read is H which is in position bit (8).
Here is the frame header sample
I want to return each of these and alsobe able to locate one such as H and return it value and also loop through by position. eg. Lets say I also want to read a bit at position x and or set it with a value.

What I have tried:

The samples I've seen so far online only shown how to read tags not bits or any similar thing to what I'm looking for.
