Would you consider adding a surround sound effect or 3D effect to the app?

MihaiSmig 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0
I used to stream music to my old windows phone via a GSP Player application that had surround sound or 3D effect abilities. The resulting sound was awesome. Would you consider adding this capability to the player?
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
We would like to add all the supported EQ and sound FX supported by the newer Android OS versions. If these FXs are supported by the OS you should see this feature available soon. Otherwise it might take a little longer to have this feature supported.

Update v2.1.7 is out now... Please upgrade and let me know if you still have issues...  The issue should be resolved.

How about making the camera button save the song and artist name along with a timestamp?

Anonymous 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0
I often listen while driving alone, meaning I can't (responsibly) take the time to look at the Droid to see the active song listing.
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
This is actually a good idea... :) We will look it over and see how it feels to have such feature...

Transmit track information over bluetooth

Mirco Matuscheck 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 6 years ago 3

Please transmit track information when streaming over bluetooth.

The stock music player on my Samsung Galaxy SII does this perfectly, so it's not an issue of the drivers not supporting this.

Jona (Lead Developer) 6 years ago

Thanks for the info! Yes, this is a great feature.  We have tried in the past but some protocols where not available on Android.  What version of Android is this device running? 


System EQ an XiiaLive

Charly 2 years ago • updated by Rodrigo (Developer) 2 years ago 2
I have a custom ROM with am inbuilt EQ (Viper4Android). With other apps I can disable the app's own EQ and use MusicFX (or whatever they call it). It would be nice if Xiia allow this kind of customization. At the moment is its own EQ or nothing.

Rodrigo (Developer) 2 years ago

Hi Charly,

we will keep your suggestion in mind for next planning releases.

thanks a lot.


Sell to my country (Turkey)

ilgaz.nsa 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 0
I can't understand why it writes "not available to your country" when I try to purchase application. It can be seriously misunderstood too, it sounds like "we're not selling to Turks".
Never seen the message on any other paid application.
Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago
Wow! Good catch! Somehow the Google Play Market had this country set as not allowed to sell!  I have enabled it! Thanks!

aac ice cream

Aaron O 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 1

I am using a Droid 4 with Ice Cream Sandwhich. Everytime I try to stream a Shoutcast AAC+ stream, it first buffers for a few seconds, then disconnects. It then attempts to reconnect and repeats the same process. It plays Shoutcast mp3 streams without a problem. I really want to delete Winamp fror Droid and only use Xiia but need to stream AAC+. This is the best player for Droid though! Any ideas how to fix this? if you need any help testing please contact me. thanks!

Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago

Can you provide the error message when it is trying to connect and disconnects? You might need to reproduce the issue and collect the logs so that I can figure out what might be happening internally.

Please see this for collecting logs:

Internal error E: 209 on Android 4.2.2 (

Nanren 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 7

After i updated Xiialive to, it does not play anymore. instead, it keep looping (Internal error E: 209) making my device slower, and it kills System UI and make my background black.

Again, do proper QA tests next time. You told me that you promise that but you didn't!

I left beta tester due to that bug. i'm disappointed that i got no proper response from you/supporters/developers. i may not use Xiialive anymore if this happen again in the future.


Jona (Lead Developer) 2 years ago

New release rolling out with a fix. Thanks Evildog for the info.


Scrobble or API support?

Anonymous 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 2
Hello - I am developing an Android application that would allow display of what is currently playing in media players on Android. I expect that this application will be well received in the marketplace and I am very interested in incorporating xiialive shoutcast support.

I am able to receive scrobble intents (for scrobbledroid, etc.) from other media players and use those intents for this purpose, but it appears I cannot use xiialive because it does not currently broadcast scrobbling intents.

Is there an API or broadcast intents from xiaalive that I can use to get "now playing" information from xiaalive, specifically for shoutcast?

Thank you for your assistance.

You can read the metadata coming from XiiaLive by listening to the following intent:

* Broadcast sent out every time there is new metadata available.
* @Extra 
public final static String ACTION_NOTIFY_METADATA = "com.vblast.xiialive.service.ACTION_NOTIFY_METADATA";


What particular scrobbler intents where you hopping us to support?  Maybe we can implement them...
