XiiaLive Pro doesn't seem to regain audio driver after other apps

RgnKjnVA 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 3

Hi Jona, I'm running Android 4.2.2 on Verizon (grrr) Galaxy Nexus with XiiaLive Pro. I just noticed that I can play music on several music apps in succession but XiiaLive doesn't seem to re-establish the audio driver after other apps have been used. 


Here are my steps to reproduce (I have widgets set up for all 3 apps):

1) Stream music via XiiaLive. Works like a champ.

2) Press Stop on Xiia

3) Stream from Grooveshark app. Works like a champ.

4) Stop GS playback.

5) Try to stream from Xiia again. It looks like it's playing but no audio can be heard.

6) Stop Xiia.

7) Play music from Play Music app. Works like a champ

8) Stop PM

9) Attempt to stream from Xiia. No audio.

10) Stream from Grooveshark app. Works like a champ

11) Play music via Play Music app. Works like a champ

12) Stream from Grooveshark app. Works like a champ


If I Force Stop Xiia, it will work again but obviously not a reasonable solution. Let me know if you need logs or anything.

Thanks for the detailed feedback. I'll be investigating the issue... There seem to be some issue with the Android audio focus. By the way you can set to ignore audio focus under settings->sounds. That should fix the issue temporarily.

Same here, excact same scenario. Note 2 att

I neglected to mention this was occurring over Bluetooth to my car's stereo. However, this morning I was able to go between Grooveshark and Xiia without issue so I guess this is an intermittent issue.

Hey guys, if you can do the following test will allow me to confirm what is going on. Simply reproduce the issue were Xiia is streaming but no audio is heard. Then go to the task manager and kill the app Grooveshark or music app that took the audio focus. If the audio returns right away then we are having issues with those apps playing nice and releasing the audio focus.
