API/Library Management Protocol/getTrack

From ickStream Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Get information of a track in the cloud library. The intention with this method is to make it possible to easily show current rating, tags, loved/banned status in a now playing screen displaying currently playing track. You don't want to call this method for a long list of tracks as it will result in too many round-trips and likely poor performance.
