Two BlueTooth issues

Thomas Makro 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 6 years ago 2

Hi, I have issues with bluetooth, when using Xiaa live on my Samsung Galaxy S3, connected to my car radio with BlueTooth.


On the car radio, when I switch from BT to FM-radio, the car radio sends a BT command to the phone, to stop playing. However, when I switch back to BT, I get various behaviour. Sometimes XiaaLive resumes playing, other times XiaaLive resumes playing without sound (the time counts and data is constantly received), and other times the default MP3 player starts playing.


Any ideas would be appreciated.

I would recommend you turn ON Media control settings option under App Control.  This will make XiiaLive the default handler for all playback events and should override the Android music app from trying to play anything.  With that I would recommend not to use the Bluetooth options to auto start and stop playback since your car stereo seems to be sending play and stop commands automatically.


Please make sure the car stereo is sending a stop command and not pause when you switch away from BT. This you can confirm by looking at the XiiaLive player.

Hi, I've done as you suggested.


I can confirm that I've successfully made Xiaa the default player. This has prevented playback start from the default Android music player, when switching the car radio back to BT.


I have still issues with lack of sound through BT. In the next days I will experiment some more with this issue. The car radio seems to send BT "pause", not stop, as this is what the radio shows in the display. However, when the radio says "pause", Xiaa stops playing.


I will keep you updated.

Hey sorry took sooo long for a reply.  The actual audio routing to BT device is not handled by us. That is something that Android does on its own.  About the BT pause causing Xiia to stop it is something we have done on purpose. The reason is that with regular local file playback pause is enough to stop all player activities. However, with live streaming pausing would only cause playback to be paused but Xiia would continue downloading the live stream.
