MediaLibrary Class

Provides access to songs, playlists, and pictures in the device's media library.

public sealed class MediaLibrary : IDisposable

MediaLibrary provides the following properties that return media collections: Albums, Artists, Genres, Pictures, Playlists, and Songs. Each property returns a collection object that can be enumerated and indexed. The collection object represents all media of that type in the device's media library.

The media collections do not retrieve or instantiate all media objects immediately. Instead, you can use the collections when needed to retrieve individual media objects such as Song and Artist objects.

Because MediaLibrary implements the IDisposable interface, instantiation and use of the MediaLibrary object should be enclosed within a using block.

The following sample fragment demonstrates how to use MediaLibrary to retrieve and play a song.


using System;
using Microsoft.Xna.Framework;
using Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Input;
using Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Media;
namespace MobileSimpleSongPlay
{
    static class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            using(MediaLibrary library = new MediaLibrary())
            {
                SongCollection songs = library.Songs;
                Song song = songs[0];
                MediaPlayer.Play(song);
            }
            while (!GamePad.GetState(PlayerIndex.One).IsButtonDown(Buttons.Back))
            { ; }
        }
    }
}
