very poor quality with AAC+.

yoshi17 fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 8 anys 0
I've got very poor quality with AAC+. 
The stream is played without interruption but the sound is very crapy, high frequencies are reproduced but with a lot of quatization noise (like if it was downsampled in 8 bit deph), and the low freq present but at a lower level.

If I play the same stream (http://stream-aac.frequence3.net:7070) from an other material (my computer under win7, foobar2000 v1.1.5, or winamp v5.61) I do not have this quality issue.

If I encode an AAC+ file end I play it on my androide device with poweramp the sound is very good.

I think the AAC+ decoding engine of xiialive is bugus.

My device is Motorola Defy, with original android 2.1 (I do not take the time to customiz my rom yet)
Answer
Previous versions of Android such as 2.1 have a bad AAC decoder.  We use the phones decoder for playback.  If you like to test our beta internal stream engine, just go under XiiaLive settings -> Advanced users and switch Internal stream engine to ON.  Remeber that it's in beta state and track information is currently not working....

Stream plays intro, stops, restarts stream

Rich Weingartner fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 8 anys 6
The stream I listen to has a intro to it before the actual radio station starts.  Here is the URL for the stream: http://mozart.wkar.msu.edu:80/wkar-fm-mp3  It starts playing, plays the intro, then says that it "completed" then starts buffering and playing again getting the intro.

This used to work fine a few days ago.  I have a Droid X phone and the only thing that changed is that I upgraded to the Gingerbread release.
Answer
This is an issue with a particular intro audio clip merged into the live feed.  The broadcasters tools are merging the audio frames incorrectly and some Android phones seem to choke and not be able to recover from out of sync audio frames.  That is why on some phones such as yours this is an issue.  I'm currently looking into how this can be resolved.

Overlapping streaming of mp3s in m3u playlist

insertmemehere fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 8 anys 0
I note that there's a pause between mp3s in a m3u playlist. It'd be nicer if the app could start buffering the next mp3 in the playlist once the current mp3 is fully buffered.
Answer
I think your idea is interesting and I'll leave it as under review so that we can come back to it later on.

Problem Restoring Database

Raul Romero fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 8 anys 2
Hi,

Can't restore dB for some reason. Had no problem in the past.  Tried un-installing and re-installing Xiia (paid) but stations or tags don't show up.  When I went through the process the first time the application would stop/crash. Tried this several times.  When I re-installed the crashing stopped but still no results.
Answer
Unfortunately it seems like you're backup is corrupted... Could you email your backup file?  It should be located on the sdcard.  I could verify if it's corrupted and see if I can fix it...

Because of this kind of issue we are changing how we do backups.  We will use a different method that will cause backups to never get damaged... :) Plus, we are adding cloud syncing for favorite stations and songs...

Connection drops when a text message is received or sent

Anònim fa 9 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 7 anys 6
Using the Lite app, on my HTC Incredible (Android 2.2, Verizon Network), when streaming, if I receive or send a text message, the connection drops and has to be re-established. This happens every single time
Answer
It is a restriction of any CDMA network. You can only have a voice or data going at once, not both... unless you are connected to wifi, then you can have both.

Verizon and Sprint are both CDMA. Texting falls under the category of voice and not data.

[XiiaLive Beta] What does "Now playing disabled" mean?

Jason Simpson fa 7 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 7 anys 1
On my Favorites list, "Now playing disabled" appears below each station name. What does this mean? Why is it disabled? Can it be enabled?

I'm using the beta version. (Do I need to keep the Pro version installed?)
Answer
This is a feature currently under development.  The feature will be able to turn it on by swiping down on the top menu bar. However currently this option is not enabled.  I'm still not sure if this will be a paid version feature only.

SHOUTCast video streaming

kirk fa 7 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 7 anys 0
Can the app handle  low bandwidth (200-400kbps) H264 video + MP3  audio streams provided via http from a ShoutCast server?
Answer
Our app is currently not designed for video playback.  However you could potentially stream the content but receive no video just audio.  You would have to go into XiiaLive settings and change the stream engine to be internal... Or using XiiaLive Beta go under settings->Streams and change the stream engine to FFMpeg.

connection dropped

Philip Weiss fa 8 anys updated by Jona (Lead Developer) fa 7 anys 1
was llistening to ebm-radio.com (a high bandwidth stream) using XiiaLive (not lite). Connection dropped, but xiialive now won't connect to the stream again. Or any stream. Selecting any favorite brings me to the player windows, but the player is locked on the old stream, still saying connection dropped. Tried exiting app and restarting, same result. Tried killing app and restarting, same result. Will, probably have to reboot the device....

Not the ffirst time, I've had this issue on my xoom, though it happens only infrequently. But it's annoying to force a reboot.
Answer
Thanks for the info.  So, what is the exact message you are seeing every time you would try to connect? I know you said connection dropped but I just want to make sure that is the only message or you see something else...

My initial guess is that Android media framework on your phone is crashing for some reason.  This does sometimes require the phone to be restarted.

If you notice the app to not be able to stream just long press the stop button to force the streaming process to be cleared out.

In any case if you have time when you reproduce the issue could you collect the phones logs?  This could help me target the exact cause a lot faster!
