I have a Verizon Glaxay Nexus and it seems that ever since I upgraded to Android 4.2.2 I can no longer seek correctly with the Seekbar. Any time I go to move the bar to any location of buffered music it always goes back to the begining of the stream. The Seekbar does fill and the metadata points are still there. I have the Stream engine set to Android since that's the only setting that works (even before when I was on Android 4.1). If I have it set to FFMpeg no stations will connect also the same when I was on Android 4.1.

Please note that the media seeking issues was seen on older versions of XiiaLive. If you have installed v3.2.0 or greater this issue should no longer be happening unless you have selected the Android stream engine. You can check what stream engine you have selected by going under XiiaLive Settings/Stream.
Under review

Thanks for the feedback. This is an issue that was seen on Nexus4 devices also running the same OS version. My guess is there is something on Android that has changed in this OS version that is causing issues. I'll be looking to see if I can resolve the issue. 


About the FFmpeg stream engine what issues are you essentially having? By the way we are working on a much more improved stream engine that will allow recording and seeking just about any audio format. Now date for release yet...



I decided to look a little deeper in to the FFMpeg issue I’m having and found that it seems to be related to the bit rate a stream is set to. I have tried these bit rates with success 24kbps, 52, 64, 112, 128, 192, 320. The bit rates that fail (of the ones I tried, there may be more) are 32kbps and 134. With those two I will get what seems to be a random amount of “fail to connect” and “unexpected stop” messages before getting the “Max Retries Reached”. I have “Unlimited retries” off and therefore it get a total of 6 random fails and unexpected messages. The .977 stations seem to be in 134kbps if you wish to try. Hope this helps.

I have the same issue with Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.3.


When I seek once, it jumps to the beginning of my buffer.

Sometimes it's worse: No matter where I seek, it says "Buffering 0%" and that's it. No sound.


It gets even worse when I seek while losing connection.


A common use case of mine:

If I know that I'll enter an area where I lose the internet connection or it is so bad that streaming is impossible then I seek back so that the music doesn't stop while in that area. I expect it to continue smoothly once the internet connection is reliable again - just skipping the part of the stream where it lost connection. That barely works :(

I have the same problem with the seek bar. It will rewind only to the beginning.
Planned
UPDATE 12/10/13
We will no longer be supporting fixes on the current XiiaLive release stream engine. We are almost complete with a brand new stream engine that will be the best any app has ever seen! It is fast and very smart! It will support seeking for any audio format. Beta will be released sometime this month.

@Jona, I look forward to the new engine. The existing one is pretty awesome already.

I shall be happy to test the Beta version; how would I get it?
I to am having the seek bar issue, I have a Samsung SG3 and has the same issue of when I try to scroll to rewind back to a point it automatically goes back to the beginning of the buffer.  Is there a tentative date the new version is set to release?

I use Xiia Live Pro everyday at work for hours and get distracted from daily duties and the seek bar really comes in handy. 
Hopefully, no more than a month from now if all testing goes well... As you know this is a very important area of the app so we want to possibly do a perfect release. :)
I have your latest update from the 6th. Alas, the XiiaLive Pro still has the problem with the seek bar. Any idea when this will be fixed? Thanks.
Jona, the latest version released today still has this problem.

However, I've installed the Beta version, and I'm pleased to report that it works properly.

Any idea when the fix will be released to XiiaLive Pro?
Awesome XiiaLive Beta works for you! I just updated the status of this post. Check it out should answer your question. Thanks!

Hey guys, I would like to let you know that after over 10 months of hard work we are now so close to releasing our latest stream engine! The best one ever built! :) This stream engine supports just about all formats and it allows you to seek on all formats. It is also really smart handling network tower switch-offs and other little details that make XL even better!

If you can't wait for the official release please download XiiaLive Beta to check it out! Let us know how it works for you! :)

So 3.2 with the new stream engine came out and I still have this nasty bug on a stock Nexus 7 2013. Shame on you guys!
:/ Are you having the issue with a particular station? Sorry, this update was tough to do because of so many changes. But in the long run it will be awesome! :)
Hello again, I just had to do an update on my Samsung S4 and now the seek bar doesn't work again, any suggestions??
Please make sure you have version 3.2.0.x installed. If you do and you are still experiencing issues please reproduce the issue and then right away go to XiiaLive settings and trigger a bug report. This should hopefully include some important insight to understand what is going on. Thanks!

I am still having a seek issue on at least one stream, and I am on v3.2.0.6, using the FFMpeg engine. On this particular stream (93.3 WMMR, AAC @ 34kbps), the seekbar does not fill up with data. If you swipe the position indicator to the right, it goes to the beginning of the stream, and if you swipe left it goes to the current point in the stream, but you are unable to access any point in between.
xiia live Pro version I have is 3.1.0 with no update, how would I install 3.2.0.x?
It is slowly rolling out... Right now only 50% of users are getting the update. We did this becuase version 3.2.0 is a major update for us and we want to avoid massive failure in case things didn't work properly. So far update is going great. Today I will be putting a new small update version 3.2.0.5. If this looks good over the weekend I'll change the rollout to 100% of users.
Ok, thats a good plan. Question: what stream am I suppose to use, I always thought the Android one, but there is FFMpeg there as well? Luv the app, glad I paid for it. :)
Before FFmpeg was simply used to support other audio formats. It didn't support smart recovery and seeking. Now with the new v3.2.0 release FFMpeg engine is our major update and will automatically be the default engine. It is incredibly fast, smart and efficient! :) So I highly recommend using FFmpeg. We kinda got tired of relying on Android Media Framework. It is buggy across all +5000 Android devices. :)

Hello I have a new problem with the XIIA app, I have one radio station that I usually listen to everyday, WJJO out of madison WI, and it stopped working one day and I tried to uninstall and reinstall the app without success. The WJJO radio station does work in other apps such as the JJO app and Tunein radio. Any Suggestions?


I have not tried to restore the phone as of yet, I was hoping not to have to because everything else is working great.

What kind of phone do you have? I just tried it with mine, and the station doesn't work on there either.


There are a couple of reasons why this problem could be happening to you.

hello, it work on android....what could be the problem?

I have an LG G6 now and it used to work. All the other local stations work just fine to thats why its weird. 

It says request not found E-54
