m3u file default application

Anonymous 8 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 2

I'm not sue where the source of this problem is, but when I open an M3U file (via Astro) and tell Android to always open M3U files with Xiialive (lite), it works fine until I restart my phone. After booting, the default M3U association is taken away from XiiaLive and I once again have to tell Android what program to use when opening that type of file. Do you know what could be causing this problem? It's very frustrating, since I use Tasker to open an streaming M3U in XiiaLive as an alarm clock. but it never turns on if it's stuck on the screen asking what program to open it with.

Some Android OS's have issues with remembering associations.  In this case I believe its an issue with your device.

Was there any insight on this?  I'm the original poster and I continue to have the same problem, but now even worse.  The M3U association seems to get reset at random -- I can't tell what's causing it.  I haven't noticed it with any other intents.  At this point I wish there was some way to semi-permanently set my default M3U association.  Help me, please!
Can you let me know what Phone you have and what version of Android is running?  I definitely what to resolve that issue.
