App transfer file mp3 from my computer to Window phone by C#

    Question

  • I am developing an application copy file mp3 from my computer to Windows Phone 8 devices

    I use source: http://cgeers.com/2012/04/17/wpd-transfer-content-to-a-device/#comment-15918

    However, these devices can not recognize these files, because some music properties are missed in these files (duration, bit rate,...).

    Could you help me how can I add these properties to copied music files?

    Thanks!

    I suggest you check the support media codecs for windows phone development from the link I have posted. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/ff462087(v=vs.105).aspx. If you need more support of media type, you should refer to UserVoice to send requirement.

    Thank you for understanding.

  • Hello,

    Currently, the Windows Phone Platform doesn't provide a way to modify song metadata on the device. According to your scenario, I would recommend you do this in desktop application. Try moving this check logic into desktop application, just transfer the good format mp3 file to windows phone device. See the Supported media codecs for Windows Phone 8.

    If you want to know how to edit metadata, please post thread on windows desktop forum for effective response.

    Just to save your time, I pick up two articles about this.
