Properties

BufferingProgress

Gets a value that indicates the current buffering progress of a MediaPlaybackSession.

CanPause

Gets a value that indicates whether media can be paused if the MediaPlayer.Pause method is called.

CanSeek

Gets a value that indicates whether the current playback position of the media can be changed by setting the value of the MediaPlayer.Position property.

DownloadProgress

Gets a value indicating the position after the current playback Position to which downloading has completed and content is buffered.

IsMirroring

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the content of the media playback session is currently being mirrored horizontally.

IsProtected

Gets a value that indicates whether the media that is currently playing in the MediaPlaybackSession is protected by digital rights management (DRM).

MediaPlayer

Gets the MediaPlayer associated with the MediaPlaybackSession.

NaturalDuration

Gets a value indicating the duration of the currently playing media, when being played back at normal speed.

NaturalVideoHeight

Gets the height of the video in the currently playing media item.

NaturalVideoWidth

Gets the width of the video in the currently playing media item.

NormalizedSourceRect

Gets or sets a normalized rectangle within the video source which is rendered by the MediaPlayer. This enables pan and zoom within video.

PlaybackRate

Gets or sets a value representing the current playback rate for the MediaPlaybackSession.

PlaybackRotation

Gets or sets a value from the MediaRotation enumeration that specifies the rotation applied to video content during playback.

PlaybackState

Gets a value indicating the current playback state of the MediaPlaybackSession, such as buffering or playing.

Position

Gets or sets the current playback position within the currently playing media.

SphericalVideoProjection

Gets an object that manages the spherical video projection settings used by the media playback session.

StereoscopicVideoPackingMode

Gets or sets a value specifying the stereoscopic video packing mode for the MediaPlaybackSession.

Methods

GetBufferedRanges()

Retrieves a read-only list of time ranges for which data is buffered and playback can begin immediately.

GetOutputDegradationPolicyState()

Gets an object that expresses the current output degradation policy state of the MediaPlaybackSession.

GetPlayedRanges()

Retrieves a read-only list of time ranges for which content has been played back.

GetSeekableRanges()

Retrieves a read-only list of time ranges in which the playack position can be seeked to. For live streaming, these ranges represent the times ranges for which data is still available.

IsSupportedPlaybackRateRange(Double, Double)

Gets a value indicating whether the specified range of playback rates is supported.
