Constant buffering

John Green 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 5
With Sprint on Nexus S.  I've set the buffer to the maximum but sometimes even after coming out of buffering, it plays for a couple of seconds and drops connection and has to rebuffer.  Please increase the buffer.  Is it a normal issue with everyone or is it my awful phone?  Can't wait to get rid of this one.

This is a standard issue with online radio on wireless devices.  If you want to understand a bit more what the buffering settings do take a look at this post.

Also, we have created a new engine that automatically recovers from a lost connection.  It is in beta state but you can check it out by downloading XiiaLive Beta.
What version of Android are you using, and is it only stuttering when you have the screen off?

I had the Nexus S 4G for a year, and it was a great phone that worked very well with XiiaLive and had many awesome custom ROMs. I have a few ideas of what may be wrong, though...
I am using ice cream sandwich.  Any tips would be appreciated.  It drops connection and rebuffers frequently, not just when screen is off.

I'll try the beta version, but I don't think your reply addresses the issue.  I understand what buffering is, my point is after coming out of a buffer to 100% it frequently, immediately, drops connection and rebuffers.  WHERE was the buffer it just built up?
Oops! Sorry, It just seemed like that was the issue... :P  Does this happen with all stations? Could you try an AAC station and also MPEG station to see which type is having issues? It might be worth reproducing the issue and than collecting the logs from your phone.  This will allow me to see what is happening internally.  To do that its simple:

Please let me know if you are still having issues with the latest XiiaLive Beta. Thanks!
