How to change the displayed title when streaming with PlayTo ("Media From ...")

    Question

  • Hi,

    I just implemented the "PlayTo" function in my WinJS app, thanks to the sample:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465176.aspx

    Works great :). I am streaming from an HTML5 audio tag and the msPlayToSource property, just like in the sample.

    When I stream to my XBOX, it shows "Media from Clouder!" which is the name of my app. I would like it to show the title of the song, and even the song image cover. When I stream a track to my xbox from Microsoft's Music app, it shows the track's title at least.

    I tried looking at other PlayTo API but the only available method is the setSource method that take a msPlayToSource property and this object doesn't have any "metadata" associated, just like you can associate metadata to MediaControls

    Is it possible to change the PlayTo metadatas?

    Thanks for your help,

    Fabien
