XiiaLive Beta v3.0.0.04/05

A new beta update is out! The following are just a few highlights for this update.
This update took a little longer since there was a big issue with the streaming cache. We had a nasty memory leak in java that would cause the media service to crash after a some time streaming. Back then we where relying heavily on devices having external storage. This didn't allow some devices to stream and was somewhat slow and a little heavy on the battery.
After a lot of tests and different ideas was able to come up with a solid "beta state" caching system that should be fast, reliable and efficient on any device with or without external storage. The new cache now smartly chooses the best setup according to the devices available resources.
The UI was cleaned up getting ready for official release. Main changes where a new design for the home screen in landscape. Also, the player got a few touch-ups. Mainly landscape player getting a cleaner redesigned look.
We where able to localize the beta with 3 completed languages; Dutch, Russian and Portuguese. Also, partially translated languages; French, Spanish, German, Finnish, Hungarian, Italian, Serbian and Estonian. If you spot a missing translation or wrong translation please let us know! Also, if you don't see your language help us translate it!
A new add URL wizard has been added. It allows you to easily add a new URLs to your favorites. This new wizard support HTTP Auth and also fetches and caches playlists.

In this new beta, I get no sound on a Samsung Galaxy S running ICS 4.0.4 from CM9. Sound works in other apps.
Also it seems like you disabled the public broadcast of the com.vblast.xiialive.intent.action.MEDIA_DETAILS_UPDATE intent. Do you plan to reenable it at some point ?
I've fixed my API issue due to the Intent category that changed from "beta" to "com.vblast.xiialive.intent.category.BETA_VERSION". Thanks very much for the Java file.
I'm the author of BubbleUPnP, an app that streams audio/video/images to UPnP/DLNA renderer devices such as TVs, XBMC, WDTV Live, Windows Media Player, Hifi devices, etc.
I use the API to play the shoutcast streams to those devices. Playback is initiated in XiiaLive. BubbleUPnP catches the intent and initiates playback to the the target device and stops local playback on XiiaLive. The app has an integrated shoutcast proxy for those devices not able to play shoutcast streams but able to play regular http mp3/aac streams.
If you want to try it, install BubbleUPnP from the Market and use non-beta Xiialive with it after looking at instructions in the app, in Settings > About/Help > Tips > Interacting with other apps (there's a section on XiiaLive). You will need a target UPnP device to play to.
Thanks for this API, it is very useful to extend both apps.
Oh, what device and ROM are you using?
This version fixed the playback issue on Dell Streak 7. The playback is now even better and more stable compared to XiiaLive 2.X versions.
I also extracted the apk and installed it on Samsung Galaxy Fit and HTC Wildfire (phones that are not supported for now) and it works flawless. Good job. It gets better and better.
The only thing I noticed is that on all the devices I mentioned above, when using Android stream engine, the player reports the samplerate at hlaf of the stream's value, but that doesn't affect the playback or the quality of the sound.
Anyway, keep up the good work.
Hey sorry for not sending you the newer apk as I told you before on another post... :( It's awesome things are working better! Yes, there was a "little nasty" bug on the AAC side of things, but I'm excited that that was it and fixed your issue! The new cache is super fast and efficient compared to previous versions of Xiia. I really hope it improves CPU usage a bit.
:( The current release v3.0.0.05 is what he is talking about... Unfortunately your issue seems to be with a bad Android media framework on the custom ROM. Have you gotten any response from the ROM devs?
I posted te bug this morning (CET) so I have no answer now. I'll keep you informed when I hear something. http://bugs.andromadus.com/issues/82
FYI: The latest JellyBean build for the HTC Vision solved this issue. Both the beta and stable versions work nice with AAC+ streams :)
Awesome! Thanks for the update! :)
