Description Timothy Risi 2015-03-27 21:52:30 UTC
Currently you have to call the GetAttribute with an NSString key for the attribute you want to get and cast the result to the proper type (or SetAttribute with an NSObject and the NSString key).  From Rustam's comment on 27708:

We can provide typed properties for each attribute.

From QTKit.h:
// NSArray of NSNumbers representing power for each audio channel in dB
QTKIT_EXTERN NSString * const

We can bind this attribute like this:
double[] AudioAveragePowerLevels {
 get {
  // call GetAttribute
  // convert NSArray to double[]
 set {
  // convert double[] to NSArray
  // call SetAttribute

IIRC QTKit headers were removed with Xcode 8.x - that makes them bad candidates to include in future versions (unless a specific use case can't be covered without it).

QuickTime was removed from Xcode 8+ and we won't be adding or updating bindings for it.
