How to detect a song playing by iPod


Is it possible programmatically find out a song details of iPod library if my app allows playing background iPod music? some like:

start "My app" if (iPod music playing) { song.details == playing.music.details" }

I don't even have no idea how to determinate if is any song is playing by iPod. Any idea?


It kinda easy:

MPMusicPlayerController *musicPlayer = [MPMusicPlayerController iPodMusicPlayer]]; NSLog(@"Playing %@", [[musicPlayer nowPlayingItem] valueForProperty:MPMediaItemPropertyArtist]);


See the <a href="http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/MediaPlayer/Reference/MediaPlayer_Framework/_index.html" rel="nofollow">Media Player Framework Reference</a>:


"This framework...gives your application access to the iPod library."
