MediaCenter Playback States
« on: March 03, 2024, 04:21:32 pm »

I'm trying to figure out what the valid playback states are for MediaCenter as returned by:

http://localhost:52199/MCWS/v1/Playback/Info?Zone=-1     in the "State" field

I have searched and looked at MCCommands.h but I can't seem to find the full list of available states.

This is what I've found so far... I've seen WAITING ("Status" field) too but didn't write down the numeric value.

STOP = 0,
PAUSED = 1,
PLAYING = 2,
BUFFERING = 3
WAITING = ??

3 is the magic number

I see state 3 as status "Buffering"

I've seen status "WAITING" but I didn't record the State value.

Ignore the Status attribute... it won't exist for video.

Here are the state values I have:

Code: [Select]
        0 => 'Stopped',
        1 => 'Paused',
        2 => 'Playing',
        3 => 'Waiting',
        4 => 'Count',

Thanks MrBiff and mattkhan....  Maybe "Buffering" and "WAITING" are the same numeric state.  I'm logging all I get to try and get all the states/state values, but WAITING is rare.

I use MC only for audio.

Play a URL and you will see the waiting state.

I'm not sure what "play a url means"....  is that video related to MediaCenter?  I've never played any video in MediaCenter.

If you see the WAITING status... what is the state numeric value?

File > Open URL, and paste a URL such as:

https://streams.kqed.org/kqedradio

The "Status" attribute is just a friendly display name used by MC.  Use the State attribute.  The values are as I've posted above.

Never seen count before, what do you need to do in MC to produce that state?
