Desktop Players

Note: Support for Desktop Players is exclusive to Windows as of right now.

This allows adapters to read and interact with desktop players that integrate with the Windows Media Session Transport Controls.

Browsers are explicitly excluded from this to avoid interference with the browser extension.


  • Volume and rating control is not supported, as the Windows API does not provide support for them.
  • Some players might only support a subset of the API's features. They might report the title, artist, etc. correctly but may not expose functionality like pausing, setting position, etc.

Disabling or enabling
