I'm not sure I understand your post. You would like to add your station? Here is how to do that:



Problem Restoring Database

Raul Romero 8 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago 2

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.

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

Anonymous 9 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 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
Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago
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 7 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 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?)
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
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 7 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 0
Can the app handle  low bandwidth (200-400kbps) H264 video + MP3  audio streams provided via http from a ShoutCast server?
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
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.
Under review

connection dropped

Philip Weiss 8 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago 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.
Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago
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!

Buffer Sound

Anderson Pereira 7 years ago updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 1
Like to know if is possible to to disable the sound of the program when buffer reaches 100%.
I'm trying to tune a web radio by the internet 3G and Xiia live is buffering several times in a row.
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
You can easily change the notification fxs by going into XiiaLive->Settings->User experience and select the Notification sounds. A popup should provide a few options. Select disabled.
Will be answered

Is XiiaLive available on the internet/browser?
