Thanks for the help, Silviu. Your swift reply is greatly appreciated
I've already tried this, though. When I put a listener on metadata in the netstream all I get from it is the following:
The event only ever fires once, when the stream first starts, and then is never seen again. When I put a metadata listener on the media element, I get this (again, just once at the beginning):
abs [NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN] rel [NaN, NaN, 100, 100] anch (NaN, NaN)(NaN, NaN) pad [NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN] layoutMode: none index: NaN scale: letterbox valign: middle halign: center snap: true
Is this a case of the information just not coming through, or am I looking in the wrong place?. I was under the impression from reading Flash forum posts that track info (artist / song name) wouldn't normally be coming through metadata. However, I don't really see, at least in the case of MP4 video, where else it would come from. =/
please ask the stream provider to provide you the mechanism for sending the information you asked for, or a sample code to extract it. Then we'll see what can be done using OSMF.
PS: the metadata on the media element is layoutmetadata - it's useless for your purposes.
