How to access music file headers in windows store apps


  • Hi ALL,

    I  developing a music player windows store apps using HTML-Javascript. Music Player will give option to user for selecting file from Music Library and play it.

    Now I am able to the Music file which user selects but the problem is I am unable to read headers of the music file selected by user.

    I want to read headers from the mp3 files so that I can show thumbnail for the music file selected by user.

    Please help  me on this.

    Thank You.

  • It depends on what you mean by thumbnail image of music file. You can get the file thumbnail from StorageFile.GetThumbnailAsync . Properties to look up the image file from MusicProperties' named properties. If you're looking for another property you can use it's RetreivePropertiesAsync  method.
