AppCaptureMetadataPriority Enum


Specifies the relative importance of an app capture metadata item stored using AppCaptureMetadataWriter. When the storage space allotted for accumulated metadata is low, the system will use the priority and age of metadata items to determine the order in which metadata is purged to free storage space.

Important 1

The metadata item is of higher importance than Informational metadata items.

Informational 0

The metadata item is of lower importance than Important metadata items.


Important priority means the metadata will be uploaded to the Xbox Live service. The metadata will be used to help users search clips or annotate broadcasts, among other things. Both Important and Informational metadata are embedded in the generated .mp4 file, so you should not include any private user information in the metadata.
