Widget Favorite fails with INVALID URL on some stations.

Slow Loris 2 years ago • updated 2 years ago 9

Device: Minix X8H-Plus

Android: 4.4.2


I create a favourite widget for the home screen, but when I click on it, it says, "INVALID URL"

The same channel listed in the favourites INSIDE the XiiaLive application can be started/played without any problems/errors.

The odd thing is, it's not all stations/play lists for example:


http://stream.16bit.fm:8000/cafe_mp3_128 plays fine in XiiaLive or as a home screen favourite widget. However,

http://stream.16bit.fm:8000/wine_channel_192 says "INVALID URL" as a favourite widget, but plays fine if selected from the favourite list within XiiaLive

Hello! Apologies for any delay in our response. We have tried to access both radio station and it's working fine on our end. Can you kindly reproduce the issue on your end then directly trigger a bug report after. This would really help our developers on checking the root cause of the issue. Thank you!

I'm having the same issue on a Samsung Galaxy S6 running Android 6.0.1 and XiiaLive 3.3.2.0-30057. So far there are 2 stations where the Favorite widget gives the errors, but there are no similarities between them. One is a manually added station and the other was added from the directory. They both play fine from the favorites list in XiiaLive. Seems the URL in the widget might be getting malformed somehow. Will send a bug report also.

Sent a bug report under the email ID Zeke.

This happens with the above stations on all of my Android phones and 'TV Boxes'

So at least it's consistent across all my Android devices even if this is limited to a few station showing a problem.

This was not a problem in previous versions of Xiialive and it only started happening in the last month or so.

Previously when I created these favourite shortcuts they worked fine.

Could you be more specific. What is the nature of your question. (see original OP)

Re: Where is this happening on


Create an Android widget and select a favourite station from the list of already pre-selected and saved stations in your favourite list from Xiialive

This creates an Xiialive icon/widget on your home screen for the selected station.

Click on the icon and Xiialive starts to play with an icon in the status bar (If you have selected play in background) OR starts up Xiialive and displays the song playing if NOT playing in the background.


This happens in Android 5.1, Android 4.4.2 and Android 4.3 on all my Android devices when selecting the stations noted in the first post.


I could probably re-install an older version of Xiialive as this problem on started in the last month.

What device is this happening on?

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact - Android 5.1

Sony Xperia M (C1905 and C2005) - Android 4.3

Sony Xperia S - Android AOSP 6.0

Samsung Galaxy S4 - Android AOSP 7.0

Minix X8H-Plus - Android 4.4.2

Minix X7 — Android 4.4.2


This problem was only introduced in latest versions/updates. If I go back a few versions, none of these devices have a problem.


Check your change log and you can then reverse engineer the solution.


My thoughts have been confirmed.


The developer has knowingly/unknowingly 'engineered' this.


XiiaLive Pro Version 3.3.1.6 works fine and both stations listed in the first OP can be played from a home screen widget.

XiiaLive Pro Version 3.3.1.10-30054 Works too.


XiiaLive Pro Version 3.3.2.0 FAILS


I have done a complete uninstall of XiiaLive with cache and data deleted in my testing.
