MediaFacade

Facade modules for dealing with complicated MediaStore in a simple way.

Usage

Audio

Audio in MediaStore has several tables like Media, Artists, Albums, Playlists and Genres. MediaFacade provides easy accesses to those tables.

Albums

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private AudioFacade facade;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = AudioFacade.getInstance(this);
    Cursor albums = null;
    try {
      albums = facade.album().fetchAlbum();
      // do whatever you like with the album metadata
    } finally {
      if (albums != null)
        albums.close();
    }
  }
}

Artists

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private AudioFacade facade;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = AudioFacade.getInstance(this);
    Cursor artists = null;
    try {
      artists = facade.artist().fetchArtists();
      // do whatever you like with the album metadata
    } finally {
      if (artists != null)
        artists.close();
    }
  }
}

Genres

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private AudioFacade facade;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = AudioFacade.getInstance(this);
    Cursor genres = null;
    try {
      genres = facade.genre().fetchGenres();
      // do whatever you like with the album metadata
    } finally {
      if (genres != null)
        genres.close();
    }
  }
}

Playlists

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private AudioFacade facade;
  private EditText playlistName;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = AudioFacade.getInstance(this);
    Cursor playlists = null;
    try {
      playlists = facade.playlist().fetchGenres();
      // do whatever you like with the album metadata
    } finally {
      if (playlists != null)
        playlists.close();
    }
  }

  public void onNewPlaylistButtonClick(View v) {
    String name = playlistName.getText().toString();
    Uri uri = facade.playlist().createNew(name);
    // you can add music tracks with this uri
  }
}

Image and Video

Image and Video have similar structure in their tables. One noteworthy concept is Bucket, which is kind of Album for images and/or videos. Image and Video have 2 columns (BUCKET_ID and BUCKET_DISPLAY_NAME) for describing which bucket the image belongs to.

Bucket

Since there's no specific table that manages each buckets so you need to group by bucket when you query images/videos in SQL. ImageFacade and VideoFacade do grouping for you.

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private ImageFacade facade;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = ImageFacade.getInstance(this);
    Cursor imageBuckets = null;
    try {
      imageBuckets = facade.bucket().fetch();
      if (imageBuckets == null)
        return;
      while (imageBuckets.moveToNext()) {
        long bucketId = imageBuckets.getLong(imageBuckets.getColumnIndex(MediaStore.Image.Media.BUCKET_ID));
        // you can query images in the specific bucket with this bucketId
        Cursor imagesInBucket = facade.image().fetchByBucket(bucketId);
        // ...
      }
    } finally {
      if (imageBuckets != null)
        imageBuckets.close();
    }
  }
}

Cursors

MediaFacade provides customized yet fully Android compatible Cursors for developers to access fields by just calling corresponding methods.

public class SampleActivity extends Activity {
  private ImageFacade facade;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    // ...

    facade = ImageFacade.getInstance(this);
    ImageCursor imageBuckets = null;
    try {
      imageBuckets = facade.bucket().fetch();
      if (imageBuckets == null)
        return;
      while (imageBuckets.moveToNext()) {
        long bucketId = imageBuckets.id();
        // you can query images in the specific bucket with this bucketId
        ImageCursor imagesInBucket = facade.image().fetchByBucket(bucketId);
        // ...
      }
    } finally {
      if (imageBuckets != null)
        imageBuckets.close();
    }
  }
}

We have following customized classes of Cursors.

  • MediaItemCursor
  • AlbumCursor
  • AlbumItemCursor
  • GenreCursor
  • GenreItemCursor
  • ArtistCursor
  • ArtistItemCursor
  • PlaylistCurosr
  • PlaylistItemCurosr
  • ImageCursor
  • VideoCursor

These Cursors are subclasses of Cursor so that you can use them with CursorAdapter and various Cursor API.
