Bluetooth won't work and can't connect to AAC

csub hace 9 años actualizado por Tim M hace 9 años 0

Make sure you first pair your bluetooth device to your phone. It should be somewhere like >settings >wireless & networks >bluetooth settings. Once the device is pair to your device, you should see it on Xiialive settings.
>settings >advanced users >bluetooth options

About the aac not working...
What phone and android version do you have?
Try turning the internal stream engine by going to >settings >advance users
The internal engine is in beta state so it might work great for you or it might have some issues.
Currently the track artist/title isn't shown but we should have an update, hopefully, this month that will fix that.

how to connect Bluetooth

If you haven't already, first pair your device with your phone. You can do this by going to your phones settings and then pressing on "wireless & networks".

Once your device is paired up with your phone, you can use it with Xiialive.

First go to >settings >advaced users >bluetooth optioins. 

If your device was successfully connected to your phone it will show up there.

You can then press it for more options.

The file can be found on the root of your sd card. It's called "dliveBk.dat"

You can also long press on a favorite or tagged song and share it(send it to your email).

Restore fails to restore stations

deaddmail hace 7 años actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 7 años 2

I have manually entered stations.  And have done the backup procedure.

I have then restored from the back and had the stations disappear from the favorites.  I have taken the backup.dat and opened in a NOTEPAD to see the stations but the dont show in the app under favorites

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 7 años

So you are having issues restoring your previous backup? You won't be able to see anything when opening the .dat file on notepad. It's a database type file.  Could you email me the backup so that I can take a look to try to figure out what is going on?  Send it here: jona@visualblasters.com

XiiaLive does not work when connected using Bluetooth Tether

Charlie Su hace 7 años actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 7 años 3

When my device is connected to the Internet through Bluetooth tether, It won't connect to any stream as if there's no Internet connection. Other apps, such as browser, youtube, play store, etc. works normally.

I have a nexus 7 with CM10.1 4.2.2

Thanks for your continuous support and excellent work on this app!

Jona (Lead Developer) hace 7 años

Hey thanks for the feedback! Are you using the FFmpeg stream engine? If you are can you test with the Android stream engine? If you aren't using FFmpeg stream engine could you try streaming AAC and MPEG content so see if any of those formats are played correctly?

Also, are you able to search for stations while using BT tether?

Bug -- screen locked in "off" mode using Xiialive Pro on Galaxy S4 (sprint, android 4.4.2)

phreich hace 5 años actualizado hace 5 años 2
New Xiialive Pro user on Galaxy S4 (sprint), having a problem causing partial freezing of phone.

Here is the environment and the symptoms:
1. The phone is running on battery power, is running the latest android update for the phone (sprint CDMA version, currently 4.4.2), is a 16gb version.
2.  While playing a station, and turning off the screen, after a while, the screen will no longer come on when the lock/unlock button is pressed.  The stream continues to play, and the volume control works, the "home" button seems to be recognized, and the "back" and "menu" button light up and may be recognized, but the screen will stay off -- no matter what.  The only option when this occurs is to press and hold the lock/unlock button long enough to power down the phone, and then reboot the phone.  The screen just won't come back on unless I reboot the phone.

The odd thing is that the screen will come on for the first few minutes after it is turned off, but later, somehow freezes in the "off" mode.

This only happens when I am using Xiialive Pro -- not in any other app, so I don't think it's a phone issue.  I do have "media control" turned on, and "lock screen controls" turned on.  I also set the stream engine to "android" in the hope that it will reduce power usage (your help screen says it will).

Are there any logs or other files you would like me to send?

Do you have any suggestions?

bluetooth streaming sudden stop

Baseer Balazadeh hace 7 años actualizado por Jona (Lead Developer) hace 6 años 0
I'm on version 3.0.2. Samsung note 2.

I'VE notice bluetooth streaming suddenly stops. I'll have to force close the app before bt streaming works again. While this is happening I've tested winamp and Pandora just to make sure its not the phone. They work fine.
Jona (Lead Developer) hace 6 años

Sudden stop you are saying that audio stops being routed to BT device and possibly you are hearing it on your phone? When this happens do you see the XiiaLive that is actively playing?
