iPhone Audio File Access


#1

Can juce’s audio player get files in the user’s normal music library, i.e. uploaded from iTunes?

I presume we can only store files in the app’s sandbox. Can we trigger some other way for the phone/pad to ‘get’ a file and put it in the library?

I don’t think this is possible - if you could get access to the files then you’d be able to stream or share them in ways that Apple wouldn’t approve of… It definitely wasn’t possible in the 3.0 SDK, though I’ve not checked version 4.0 for new features that might help.

Thanks, that was my guess. And you haven’t accessed the iOS built-in players yet, right?

No, I’ve not looked at that.

[I removed this question to a new post, for making it a bit less digged in]
My request can bear the same title than here : is there a way to get running the AudioPlayback example on iOS, by including some soundfiles in the resources so they can be found by the FileBrowserComponent in the Documents folder ?
