Hi Jona, XiiaLive is a great app however my favorite station of all is C89.5(a dance station) and it wont reconnect after trying for about 5seconds and all my other stations try for well over a couple of minutes..they are all the same MPEG where i live theres alot of black spots and its important for me that it keeps trying to reconnect for alot longer..Is it possible for you to update somthing at your end cos the rest of stations keep trying alot longer..I have an HTC Wildfire on 2.2 if thats any help..Also hope you can make the pre buffer alot longer than 30seconds aswell

Closing thread. Issue should no longer happen with latest release of XiiaLive.

Switched to Nova Launcher and no longer seeing Xiia Pro lock screen controls

RgnKjnVA fa 9 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 9 anys 1

On my Verizon Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2 and XiiaLive Pro, I switched launchers from Lightning to Nova and no longer get the lock screen controls though they are set to On in Xiia settings. I do still see the notification bar controls however and I also see lock screen controls for my other two media players so I presume it's an issue between Xiia and Nova launcher.


When you use the default music player or Google music do you see the lock screen controls?


Not all mms streams are supported?

Zhaozhong Ni fa 10 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 8 anys 3
It seems there is a type of mms/wma stream that cannot be played by Xiialive? For example, the following stream does not work in either Lite or Beta version.
I believe it is a codec issue, as it does play all fine on desktop PC.
Hey, after this long... I have checked the URI and I do see that if you change the URL "mms" to "rtsp" the stream will be added to your favorites and it will play correctly without any issues.
mms:// to rtsp://

This is a temp fix but I'll be working on a solution that it fixes this issue.

can´t add to favorites

Lavinia B Napoleao fa 11 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 11 anys 0

I can listen but can´t add station Radio Mundial to my favorites.  The Add button is disabled.

I used vtuner to find out url and then I could add the station to favorite. Tks

Usually when the add favorite, round (+) button, is disabled it is due to the fact that it is already a favorite.  Please make sure when you go to favorites you are under the category "All" so you can see all your stations.

Favorites goes to category list, doesn't display all by default

Jason Whiteley fa 11 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 11 anys 1

Hi - excellent program - the first i ever bought on the android market and i use it every day! Since the latest version 2.2.3 however, when i open xillia and press favorites it goes to the category list and i have to press on all before i can see my stations.

I prefer the previous format where all favorites are shown as soon as you press on favourites, THEN if you want you can tap on all and select a category.

In the next update could you PLEASE change this back or give us the option? It's very frustrating and now i wish i could roll back to a previous version of xillia!




This feature is currently the same as previous version.  You just press the category all and it should stay there.  The one thing we did change is that if you are inside a category such as All and you press the back key, it will take you up to the category list.  Than when you come back to favorites that's the list that will be shown.

If you think it is not working properly please explain how I can reproduce the issue. 


License check failure prevents alarms from working

Hector Martin (marcan) fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 6 anys 9
I've been using XiiaLive as my alarm clock, which is usually quite reliable. Today, though, it didn't work, and I found out that XiiaLive was complaining that the license check failed.

I understand that Google Play license checks may rarely malfunction, but would it be possible to at least allow basic alarm functionality to work even if it does? Perhaps just fall back to the default alarm ringtone in that case, just as it would if stream playback fails. Having the alarm fail to work due to a licensing check is quite frustrating, and I don't want to have to set up a back-up alarm in another app and deal with disabling it every time just to work around this potential failure mode.

I've been using XiiaLive for over a year now, and I've only had it fail to wake me up twice; the other time there was no audio output, but that may have been a device snafu (a reboot cleared it up).

Hey the mentioned issue should be resolved. If for some reason you are still having issues please let us know.


Is it posible to disable repeat at the end of the playlist

Remco Brenninkmeijer fa 11 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 11 anys 3
Yes, at last a player which can handle streaming m3u and pls playlists from Ampache! (on samsung galaxy 10.1) I have been searching for almost a full day for this. I am pretty sure if you mention ampache and gnump3d playback in the features it will trigger some sales.
Back to the question, is it possible to disable the autorepeat at the end of the playlist? I like to hear different cd's and the repeat makes it difficult to switch at the end of the cd.
We are working on a new release than provides better control over the playlist.

I can't find or add my own station?

Anònim fa 12 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 11 anys 2
I can't find the station using free version. I try copy link and is not working? What should I do?
Could you provide the link you are trying to add to your favorites? Is the station you are trying to search available on the SHOUTcast directory? What is the station you are trying to find?

android 4.2 lockscreen controls

Steve Lobato fa 10 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 10 anys 2

Lock screen controls...one of my favorite features! i seem to be having a problem with it though. ..

Live pro 3.01

nexus 4 with stock 4.2


Playing xiia live and go to lock screen it works fine. 

Stop xiia and  do some other tasks, and start xiiia to play again, go to lock screen...controls are gone. 

now i have a feeling this might be a result of playing google music (the streaming app) in between. It seems like android might lose focus of the lock screen control from competing with the google music lock screen controls.  

the only way to get the lock screen controls to return is by rebooting the phone. 

I m sure this is an android os issue but i figured i would put it out there for possible repair


This is an OS bug. However I'll still look over it and try to better understand the issue.
