Tizen Native API  5.5
Media Controller

The Media Controller API provides functions for communication between the media controller server and the media controller client.

Required Header

#include <media_controller_server.h> #include <media_controller_client.h>

Overview

The Media Controller API provides a set of functions to an effective communication between the server and the client for delivering the latest server information. It helps to transfer the information like playback info, shuffle mode, or the metadata of the latest server.
To programming the interface, first, create a handler via mc_client_create() or mc_server_create(). And then, the client request the necessary information to the server by using mc_client_set_server_updated_cb(), or mc_client_set_playback_updated_cb(). The server provides the requested information to the client by the callback.
