MediaMetadata

public class MediaMetadata extends Object
java.lang.Object
   ↳ com.google.android.gms.cast.MediaMetadata

Container class for media metadata. Metadata has a media type, an optional list of images, and a collection of metadata fields. Keys for common metadata fields are predefined as constants, but the application is free to define and use additional fields of its own.

The values of the predefined fields have predefined types. For example, a track number is an int and a creation date is a String containing an ISO-8601 representation of a date and time. Attempting to store a value of an incorrect type in a field will result in a IllegalArgumentException. The complete list of predefined fields is as follows:

Field Value Type Valid Metadata Types
KEY_CREATION_DATE Date MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_RELEASE_DATE Date MEDIA_TYPE_GENERIC, MEDIA_TYPE_MOVIE, MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW, MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_BROADCAST_DATE Date MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW
KEY_TITLE String MEDIA_TYPE_GENERIC, MEDIA_TYPE_MOVIE, MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW, MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK, MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_SUBTITLE String MEDIA_TYPE_GENERIC, MEDIA_TYPE_MOVIE
KEY_ARTIST String MEDIA_TYPE_GENERIC, MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK, MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_ALBUM_ARTIST String MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_ALBUM_TITLE String MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_COMPOSER String MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_DISC_NUMBER Integer MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_TRACK_NUMBER Integer MEDIA_TYPE_MUSIC_TRACK
KEY_SEASON_NUMBER Integer MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW
KEY_EPISODE_NUMBER Integer MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW
KEY_SERIES_TITLE String MEDIA_TYPE_TV_SHOW
KEY_STUDIO String MEDIA_TYPE_MOVIE
KEY_WIDTH Integer MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_HEIGHT Integer MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_LOCATION_NAME String MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_LOCATION_LATITUDE Double MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO
KEY_LOCATION_LONGITUDE Double MEDIA_TYPE_PHOTO

Note that the Cast protocol limits which metadata fields can be used for a given media type. When a MediaMetadata object is serialized to JSON for delivery to a Cast receiver, any predefined fields which are not supported for a given media type will not be included in the serialized form, but any application-defined fields will always be included.
