    Question Audition Tracks?

    On some other Music store web sites you can addition a 15 to 30 second clip of a song before buying? Is there a call in the Nokia Music API to do something similar?

    Hi Roschler,
    good question, yes we have sample clips and the next release of the API (v2.0) in a week or so will include the ability to play them.
    Regards,

    Need a beta tester? I'm working on a "Name That Tune" game using the API. That's why I want that feature.

    What service can I monitor to know the instant it is available? (Blog, Nokia Twitter handle, etc.)

    Thanks.

    The API goes to http://nokia.ly/wpmusicapi and http://nokia.ly/musicnuget and I'll certainly tweet it - https://twitter.com/sr_gb/

    Thanks! I'm following your Twitter account now. Please tweet very loudly when you do release it (Use a Big Font, LOL!)

    Is the feature in the API yet? I just saw that DVLUP posted a challenge exactly like this so you have to have the feature now right?:

    You'd think, right? :s
    I found out that was published from your tweet!
    Give me a couple of days... I have the code working but have to finish a few other bits before I push it out...
    Cheers,
    Steve

    Published from my tweet? Are you saying that I accidentally triggered the Name That Tune post on DVLUP? Tail wagging the dog?

    Whoops!

    Nearly! I meant that I found out that our DVLUP challenge had been published when you tweeted about it as I wasn't following DVLUP.
    Anyway, let me get on with the API coding!

    Three months and no update on this? When is this going to be available?

    Sorry, I forgot to update here and contacted roschler on Twitter, I released the API a few days after the discussion as planned.

    Their is in the API a way to get the Sample Track's URI by using the MusicClient ..

    Uri uri = client.GetTrackSampleUri(ID_OF_MUSIC_TRACK);

    Now what to do with the returned URI is a whole nother mystery as I am unsure what the returned data is .. Possibly gzip'd compressed stream of the sample? Nokia Dev's would likely know more about ..

    I have tried to use a MediaElement and set the URI as the source but alas it always fails with a 3001 error.
