Add recording feature

Butch Handy hace 11 años en Android / Recording actualizado por Roman Jay Almaza hace 3 años 20 2 duplicados
I searched the old posts, and see that numerous people have asked about the ability to record the broadcasts.  In a few of the posts, you replied that something new may be happening, or you had some ideas.

Well...those posts are 2 years old.  What has happened?  

I would love to use your app more if I was given the ability to record while on wifi, and then take my phone with me and listen to it on the road.  I drive about two hours a day, and that would just use up WAY too much of my data plan to use your app through my mobile data during that time.

We have wanted to have recording for the longest I admit! The main issue is not enough resources to get it done quickly. Its always been one developer, me, doing support and coding :P But... I'm already actively planning and writing code to be able to record.

It would be great to hear how you envision the recording feature to work on XiiaLive. It's one of the features I'm excited about since it covers a lot of new code and a new improved stream engine.

Xiialive Pro starts to randomly stops the player for no reason. My internet connection is working fine and my device have enough RAM storage. No matter if the screen is on/off and how long it cached, it just randomly stop for no reason.

Please download my saved logs

Verbally command Google Now to launch XiiaLive Pro and play a station

Terina C hace 10 años en Android actualizado por Ben Aldhouse hace 6 años 3

How can I verbally command Google Now to launch XiiaLive Pro and play a specified favorite station? I'd like to use Google Now voice commands to launch the XiiaLive Pro app and begin playing a specified previously saved station.

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 8 años

It has been a while since this was posted here. However, recently Google Now and Google Assistant seem to be allowing apps to take advantage of their features. I can't promise when but I have set this feature request as nice to have.


Ability to Sync Favorites, Recently Played, etc across multiple devices.

Matt Schepp hace 12 años en Android / Backup&Restore actualizado por Mike Steidl hace 9 años 7
Just recently got an Android Tablet.. and have been using this app for years on my phone.

Is there anyway to sync your favorites, etc across multiple devices, or could you add such feature?  (Maybe even as a PRO Feature?)

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 10 años

Great request! We have already started this feature development. Definitively is a feature we really want to have specially for cases you are mentioning. We currently don't have an expected release date for this feature but for sure you will see it on XiiaLive!

Stream doesn't stop correctly after bluetooth disconnect

seanysean hace 9 años en Android / Bluetooth actualizado por Harry Hirsch hace 8 años 8
I use this app in the car. When I turn the engine off and remove the key, the bluetooth disconnects. I'd expect this to close the app.

Instead, it stays on my notifications as 'paused'. This caused another problem - after finishing work hours later I try to get back but with the BBC using temporary hashes on their streams this doesn't work. So I have to do a manual stop, wait a bit, then restart.

So there's a couple of requests here:

1. Have an option for closing the app completely on bluetooth disappearing.

2. Even if the station is in 'paused' state, after a short period of time reload the playlist and get the latest hash.

Thanks for a great app, far better than how TuneIn have ruined theirs with this social networking malarkey!

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 9 años
Ah! Ok, perfect. Thanks for clarifying this. Yes, this seems like an issue. You should be able to swipe away the notification when playback is stopped.

Bluetooth streaming broken on latest release (3.01 on ATT SGS3)

Peter Fischer hace 12 años en Bluetooth / Controls actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 11 años 0

When the stream finishes buffering, I heard audio for 2-3 seconds, before the audio stream cuts out.  XiiaLive continues to play through the active stream, but no audio is heard.  On previous versions, this was fine.

The audio seems to cut out right as the stream meta data rolls across the Android notification bar.  I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the newly added AVRCP support or not, but the timing looks very suspicious.  This problem does not occur when using headphones.

Additional Information:

Samsung Galaxy S3 

Android Version 4.04 - Stock/Unrooted

XiiaLive Pro version 3.01

Vehicle Subaru Legacy 2012

Sorry for the super delayed reply! 

First let's see if possibly the new AVRCP 1.3 hack broke BT streaming.

- Turn off the Icy-metadata option under Settings->Stream and try starting a new stream. Let me know if the issue still happens. This should cause AVRCP not to be used by the app since no metadata will be active.

After that test regardless if an issue still occurs try collecting the logs right after the issue happens when streaming. This hopefully will allow me to see a possible cause.


'Unsupported Media'. Help!

Bluetooth AVRCP metadata not working Samsung Note 3

Jamey Sewell hace 11 años en Bluetooth / AVRCP actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 10 años 29 1 duplicado
I use to be able to see Art, Song, and Artist information on my MyLink screen Chevy Equinox 2013 when using Droid Bionic (Jelly Bean). I recently switched to Samsung Note 3 and now the information doesn't show anymore. Please help

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 11 años

To summarize this post:

Previous release of XiiaLive we decided to disable the Bluetooth AVRCP metadata "HACK" for Android versions 4.3 and greater. The reason was that since Android 4.3 Android OS made some APIs available to send metadata over Bluetooth using a legit API. However, it seems that some devices fail to properly support the new APIs and for that reason we have re-enabled the "HACK" on the latest release.

The "HACK" can be enabled if not already enabled here:

XiiaLive->Settings->App control->AVRCP metadata


Alarm is not being triggered

Joschi hace 10 años en Android / Alarms actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 9 años 6
Hi Xiia Team,

Xiia was the first real cool app on my smartphone...and because of that I bought the pro version.

Everything works so cool...and I never had any problems! But since a few days... the alarm clock is not working correct anymore! Sometimes the alarm dont start in the morning though I have set the alarm everyday to 8 o`clock!

I noticed that everytime I went to bed I must go to --> Settings--> Alarms and then I must save the alarm settings again so that it really works in the morning! Thats a real strange behaviour! Do you know that problem????

Among other I bought Xiia because of that cool alarm fetaure!!!

My Device: Jiayu G3T

Many thanks in advance for your help!
Jona (Lead Developer) hace 9 años

We have released v3.3.1.3 which contains various small fixes for the Alarms. If you are still having issues please let us know.
