Stream cache duration question
Andrew Networth 10 years ago • updated by Emochris 7 years ago • 6
I have XiiaLive Pro purely for the stream cache duration option that sets it to 60 mins. I use this option for my train journeys , however ive noticed that if i get a phone call or permanently lose internet it sometime wipes the stream cache thats been building up. its terribly frustrating. any ideas
The latest releases of XiiaLive v3.2.x has our brand new stream engine which now pauses playback while on a phone call. Also, the cached audio data will not be lost after a phone call. We carefully designed it so that even if a connection was lost during a phone call a reconnection would happen during or after a phone call. This should make the experience much nicer!

Thanks for your post and supporting XiiaLive! I completely understand the issue you are having. The problem is that sometimes during phone calls the data connection is cut off and the stream engine timeout and stops playback. The other issue is that we don't pause playback during a phone call we simply mute it.
All these issues are known and simply inconvenient. So we are already working on a new stream engine that resolves all these issues. We expect to have an initial beta release end of Nov or Mid Dec.
if streaming cache is like 5min, will it need to other (buffer/pre-buffer also increased to max.60sec)?
will streaming cache 5min guarantee that there will be no interrupt under 5min?
can you guide which settings should use if there is 2min network loss and I don't want any hangups
so what need to set that music playback continues between network loose and continues streaming right away connection was established.
I'm sorry, cannot quite understand terms:)
