It is my understanding that if I create a media object within my application (using MediaManager), and play it with MediaPlayer's methods, I can interact with it fully; that is, for example, I can use getMediaTime to get its current time.
However, is it possible to interact with the media objects from another application, say from the Blackberry's inbuilt music player? The idea is that my application runs in the background, and then the user goes to play his/her music normally through the Music application. I would like my application to be able to determine what is currently playing / its current media time. I don't think this is possible, but I've just started Blackberry development, so I was hoping someone could suggest some way of doing it? Apologies if it sounds like a stupid question.

hi, any luck with this ?
i'm also trying to access the 'now playing' info from the default media player.
i.e. song title, artist name, etc...
