Proxy address option in player

Erwin de Heus 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 6 years ago 2

I'm using the Xiialive player with pleasure on my android Samsung phone, but I miss an option for filling in a proxy server address. That would be very handy for stations who I can't receive outside the US. I hope you can add this function in a new update.

Thanks for the request.  It is very interesting one and will look into this.


I have set a poll for two options for adding proxy support. Please vote or share your comment which one you believe is better.

This already kind if works in the latest version (on a Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.2). Playing MP3 based streams honours the system wide proxy settings (or WLAN specific proxy setting in my case).


OGG based streams do not, however. Looking at the system log I suspect that MP3 is handled by a different decoder engine than OGG. OGG based streams connect to the stream once using the proxies (all the headers show up in the log), and then attempt to establish a direct connection to the streaming source (tcp://...), which fails.

Thanks for the post. You are correct. Setting a proxy via the system wide WiFi system should be good. In case of streaming OGG the app uses a different way to connect via native sockets and I'm not sure if that respects that proxy setting. I'll take a look to see...
