From a quick (pre-run) look your sample is using the constant name, not value.

OTOH it seem sour bindings are not optimal : the constant is not available and some API are bound in camelCase :-(
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2014-04-30 15:50:31 UTC
Confirmed. Replace with "name" and it works. IOW Apple's has something like:

   static NSString MPMediaPlaylistPropertyName = "name";

and the sample is using the constant _name_ not it's value.

I'll keep the bug open because it seems those bindings requires a bit more love (like exposing those constants).
Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2014-04-30 17:06:22 UTC
The constant already exists (even if it's not perfectly exposed in the`MPMediaPlaylistProperty` static class that expose the values.



should be:

MPMediaPlaylist.ValueForProperty (MPMediaPlaylistProperty.Name) 

Other fixes are in master / 9be5c487b663e7c799ca44c2ae41cb2dc5369440
