How to avoid commercials?

Perry Murray 8 ár síðan updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 ár síðan 0

Hello, i was wondering if there was a way of avoiding commercials? too many adds 

Jona (Lead Developer) 8 ár síðan

There two things that you should know.

1. We have XiiaLive free version which is ad supported. Those ads are only visual ads. XiiaLive Pro removed those visual ads and provides other features.

2. Some stations are ad supported. That means they place audio ads.  We have no control over those ads.

Let me know if you have more questions.

radio fades set differently for each alarm

Craig Drury 4 ár síðan updated by Rodrigo (Developer) 4 ár síðan 1

it would be good to let me set an early alarm, quiet with a fade and a second loud without. Classic FM then team rock radio if you get my drift...

Hi Craig,

this is a good idea. We want to keep it in mind for next releases.

Thanks! I've only paid for two apps for my Moment, this and LauncherPro, and I am very happy I did. xiia is a well written app that is well worth the low price, even compared to its free competitors. I also love that you take feedback so well and so positively, and act on it! Money well spent.
Jona (Lead Developer) 8 ár síðan
Thanks for the great feedback! We really appreciate it! Next update v2.1.6 should bring lot of fixes and new cool features!

Thanks again!

Always "Buffering 100%", no more "Play" after "Pause"...

thkg00fy 8 ár síðan updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 6 ár síðan 2


currently I'm using 3 different Android powered devices. All of them seem to have troubles. I will create one thread for each of them, because there are different problems.

My Samsung Galaxy Y(oung) has some issues with the current version. The FFMpeg stream engine almost freezes the device, cause it seems to need a lot of cpu power. Also the buffer doesn't work with this engine (bug or feature?)...

The "Android" engine works well .. except for some "features". When playing a stream the "BUFFERING 100%" keeps displaying on and on, including the annoying notification sound (which can be deactivated .. oh lucky me :D ). Also the stream URL in the notification bar keeps on to be displayed on and on... quite annoying!

This is not a big problem so far, but ONE thing is critical! When pushing the "PAUSE" icon inside the player, the stream pauses and is cached, until someone would hit the "PLAY" icon... Unfortunately this icon doesn't show up, due to the "BUFFERING 100%" message!

It seems like the player thinks it has nothing to play back... Stupid player! .. Nah, just kidding!!!  ;)

Okay, this should be enough so far for this post.

Kind regards

Ok! Lot of stuff let me try to narrow down what you believe is wrong and should work better.

1. FFmpeg stream engine almost freezes device. How can I reproduce this? Does it just make your phone slow?

2. FFmpeg buffering settings.  How are you determining that this setting isn't working?

3. Annoying rolling notification bar.  We are adding a new feature next release that allows you to disable the rolling notifications. In your case there seems to be some issues obviously with the streamer which is causing continuous messages.

4. You are pressing pause button while player was buffering? Thereafter you can't resume?

Not a bug

Trying to backup Favourites produces an "error 2".

geek6oy 8 ár síðan updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 ár síðan 4

Just upgraded to version 3 from Play and get "error 2" when trying to backup to xml.

HTC One X, Android 4.0.4

Jona (Lead Developer) 8 ár síðan

This is an IO error. It seems the app can't store into a file. We currently require external storage. If your device doesn't have that it will error.

If you believe it does have external storage collecting the logs after you reproduce the issue could help us understand the issue:


We will be improving the backup method so that it doesn't require external storage and so you can easily pick where to store the backup.


Rtbf vivacité

Add for belgium RTBF Vivacité. Thank you.

Hi thanks for your request! You can add the station to UberStations directory by following this link. Or you can send a request to add the stations to support@dar.com.

An alternative you can go here from your device browser and search for RTBF. You should see all those stations. Simply click one and open it with XiiaLive. Once the station starts playing save it to your favorites so that you don't have to search it again.
