Unable to retreieve album art from music files or folders in WP 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to access music metadata. I am able to get all other meta data except album art. How can I get album art?

    IReadOnlyList<StorageFolder> MusicFolders = 
        await KnownFolders.MusicLibrary.GetFoldersAsync(CommonFolderQuery.GroupByAlbum);
    
    foreach (var file in MusicFolderList)
    {
        StorageFolder mFolder = (StorageFolder)file;
        MusicAlbums obj = new MusicAlbums();
        obj.album = mFolder.Name;
    
        ThumbnailMode thumbnailMode = ThumbnailMode.MusicView;
        uint size = 100;
        StorageItemThumbnail thumbnail = await file.GetThumbnailAsync(thumbnailMode, size);
        BitmapImage AlbumThumb = new BitmapImage();
        AlbumThumb.SetSource(thumbnail);
        obj.folderArt = AlbumThumb;
    
        MusicProperties musicProperties = 
            await mFolder.Properties.GetMusicPropertiesAsync();
        obj.artist = musicProperties.Artist;                       
    
        MusicCollection.Add(obj);
    }
    
    public class MusicAlbums
    {
        public BitmapImage folderArt { get; set; }
        public string album { get; set; }
        public string artist { get; set; }
    }
