|Summary:||Allow external programs to retreive currently playing song information|

It would be great if we could have an easy way to extract information on the current song being played from the media player for use in other applications. This could be done through d-bus. Information could include artist, title, album, song length, song format. Streams should output current song, stream title, stream URL.
This sounds more as a feature for the Media Application Framework.
There is actually, just do a "dbus-monitor --session" and see the song details scroll by as the osso-media-server starts playing a song. In previous versions (Chinook/Bora?) little information was available, but currently (Diablo) there is plenty of info there.
Resolving as FIXED, then. Please reopen if you still find any details missing.
