Public Class ManifestInfo

Dim instance As ManifestInfo

public ref class ManifestInfo
type ManifestInfo =  class end
public class ManifestInfo

The ManifestInfo type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public propertySupported by Windows Phone Attributes Gets or sets attributes.
Public propertySupported by Windows Phone LogUris Gets the list of logging Uri objects.
Public property ManifestType
Public propertySupported by Windows Phone ProtectionInfo Contains information specified in the protection element inside the manifest.
Public propertySupported by Windows Phone Segments List of SegmentInfo objects. There is a SegmentInfo for each <Clip> element in the manifest.

  Name Description
Public event ChunkListChanged Event activated when the fragment info of a new text/binary chunk in a live scenario is added to the manifest. This event will fire on the UI thread.
Public eventSupported by Windows Phone SelectStreamsCompleted Event activated when a SelectStreamsAsync call has completed in any of the segments contained in Segments.



The object represents the top element in the client manifest. It has a collection of SegmentInfo objects, which each contain AvailableStreams and SelectedStreams collections. These StreamInfo objects contain the audio, video, and textual data of Smooth Streaming presentations. The SelectedStreams property must include exactly one video stream and one audio stream. Non-audio/video streams do not have this restriction and can be multiply selected and deselected. The streams in the list must be members of the current segment’s AvailableStreams and/or SelectedStreams collections. To generate the lists of available streams or selected streams use a List<T>.CopyTo constructor of type StreamInfo to copy either the AvailableStreams or the SelectedStreams property. Add or remove streams until you have the desired list.

Notifications for de-selection of current streams will arrive before selection notifications on a per-segment basis. Applications can clean up any state associated with the deselected stream before adding state associated with the new stream. However, due to the possibility of multiple segments, it is preferable to use the UniqueId property to identify the stream with which objects are associated.


The following example shows how to get SegmentInfo and StreamInfo objects from the ManifestInfo object.

    void SmoothPlayer_ManifestReady(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!PremiumAccount)
            foreach (SegmentInfo segment in SmoothPlayer.ManifestInfo.Segments)
                IList<StreamInfo> streamInfoList = segment.AvailableStreams;
                foreach (StreamInfo stream in streamInfoList)
                    if (stream.Type == MediaStreamType.Video)
                        // Limit bit-rate to 866000.
                        ulong highRate = 866000 + 1;
                        List<TrackInfo> tracks = new List<TrackInfo>();

                        tracks = stream.AvailableTracks.ToList<TrackInfo>();
                        IList<TrackInfo> allowedTracks = tracks.Where((ti) => ti.Bitrate < highRate).ToList();
                        stream.SelectTracks(allowedTracks, false);
