Base class for media route provider services.

A media router will bind to media route provider services when a callback is added via MediaRouter.addCallback(MediaRouteSelector, MediaRouter.Callback, int) with a discovery flag: MediaRouter.CALLBACK_FLAG_REQUEST_DISCOVERY, MediaRouter.CALLBACK_FLAG_FORCE_DISCOVERY, or MediaRouter.CALLBACK_FLAG_PERFORM_ACTIVE_SCAN, and will unbind when the callback is removed via MediaRouter.removeCallback(MediaRouter.Callback).

To implement your own media route provider service, extend this class and override the onCreateMediaRouteProvider() method to return an instance of your MediaRouteProvider.

Declare your media route provider service in your application manifest like this:

   <service android:name=".MyMediaRouteProviderService"
           android:label="@string/my_media_route_provider_service">
       <intent-filter>
           <action android:name="android.media.MediaRouteProviderService" />
       </intent-filter>
   </service>
