The TVSDK notification system produces various error, warning, and informational notices that provide diagnostic metadata.
Notification objects provide information related to the player’s status. TVSDK provides a chronologically sorted list of notification objects, and each notification contains the following metadata:
|type||The notification type. Depending on the platform, this property refers to an enumerated type with possible values of INFO, WARN, or ERROR. This is the top-level grouping for notifications.|
|code||The numerical representation assigned to the notification:
Each top-level range, such as errors, is divided into subranges, such as 101000 through 101999 representing playback errors.
The enumeration mediacore.PSDKErrorCode lists the possible values.
|name||A string that contains a human-readable description of the code, such as SEEK_ERROR.|
|metadata||Key/value pairs that contain additional relevant information about the notification. For example, a key named URL would be paired with a value that is a URL related to the notification, such as an invalid URL that caused an error.|
|innerNotification||A reference to another MediaPlayerNotification object that directly affected this notification. An example might be a notification about an ad-insertion failure that directly corresponds to a time-line insertion conflict. Not all notifications provide an inner notification.|
