playingtrack Object

Access information about the media currently playing


The playingtrack object provides a series of properties that contain information about media currently played by the application. Please note that this object currently only works with stations hosted by FlyCast and played with the startStation or startShoutcast commands. Not all properties may have values for all streams. An event is fired when the currently playing track changes.
