Widget text color options

Denvernate 4 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 0

I've been hoping you'd add this for a couple years now, but it's still not available.  Can you add an option to change the text color in the widget from blue to white?  It's so hard to read the text in the widget, especially when in a car dock driving around in sunlight.  The black background/dark blue text is not enough contrast to make it easy to read.  Other than that, I really like this app!

Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago
Thanks for your feedback! Yes, widgets are not the best at the moment. We will review them and improve them sometime beginning of next year. They are do for an extreme makeover we just haven't had enough time to work on them.

RTSP & MMS Protocols?

TurboNed 7 years ago • updated by Giancarlo 2 years ago 6
Can you tell us when RTSP & MMS protocols will be available through XiiaLive application for Android Market, please?
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago

We currently have something working but it's very very beta... Hopefully we can release beta support at ends of January. Hopefully sooner. Do you happen to have an RTSP url we can use for testing?

Update 05/18/11:

v2.1.8 now supports mms and mmsh.  Not sure if RTSP... you could give it a try.

Hi thanks for your request! Well as of now we don't have any plans to go to Windows phones since we don't have too many resources... Maybe in the near future...

how to add widget to screen?

pit4 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 4
some days ago my xiialive widget crashed. after removing it it want to add it again but it is not in the list

any ideas?
Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago
Hello, most likely you have moved the application to the SD card. Once you do that the widget will not be visible. This is not a bug but a design flaw in Android OS.

ASX BBC Radio stopped working with "Unexpected error"

nicojx 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0

I've been using XiiaPlayer Lite for some time to listen to BBC Radio 4 on the URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/wm_asx/aod/radio4.asx.

Since about three weeks I can't get the stream to work. Any attempt to play results in immediate and repeated "Unexpected error". Any idea what to do?
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
The stream might have been down.  I just tested and it is working properly.  Please try again and if you are having issue.  If you still have an issue, please reproduce the issue and collect the logs. The logs can help us see what is going on.

To collect the logs is fairly easy:

Track Update Stopped

Christopher Faulkner 3 years ago • updated by Ralph (Support) 2 years ago 1
  1. Sony Xperia Z2
  2. Android 5.0.2
  3. For some reason XiiaLive has stopped giving me track updates in the past week or so. I find this useful because it allows me to pause the player and skip between tracks on the radio using the blue marks on the streaming schedule. At the moment, none of those are showing for either of the main stations -Team Rock Radio and Planet Rock UK - I use having done so previously.
  4. To be able to see the blue lines that mark tracks beginning.
  5. It simply doesn't happy at the moment.
I don't know whether this is a bug or a problem with the stations. Any help would be excellent.

Empty notifications

Sean Gallagher 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 3

The song title no longer appears in the device notification area. The app icon shows but there is no song title. Asus transformer infinity, android version 4.1.1

Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago


Thanks for the screenshots! I'm able to understand exactly where you see the issue. I was able to reproduce the issue on a tablet. I'm able to see the track information if I expand the notifications but that notification popup is empty. Its really odd issue but I'll look into it and hopefully I have fixed for next update! Thanks again for your help!


What version of XiiaLive are you using? Please make sure to have the latest v3.0.1.2. Also, if with the latest you still have issues can you provide a screenshot of what you see?

TheBigMammoo 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0
I have my Mytouch 4G running bluetooth audio to my Sony XAV-70BT with media buttons enabled. it normally should skip one station down my favorites list. When I hit next, it skips 2 stations instead of 1. Any idea what's causing the duplication?
