Android :: Play 2 Sounds At Once With Different Applications?

Jun 3, 2010

Is it possible to play audio via an app like slacker.com or pandora.com or your personal audio files and simultaneously play another audio track over the top of it with a second app? My question is whether the sound hardware gets locked by the first app that accesses the audio hardware or whether a second app can access the hardware simultaneously, too.

Motorola Droid :: Notification Sounds Not Always Play

Feb 1, 2010

When I get a gtalk or text I hear the notification sound and it vibrates just fine. When I open gtalk and answer the text, then I put the phone down for a second and I don't hear any more notifications. This drives me nuts because then I pick it up and I see the person replied a long time ago.

On my old blackberry curve. Every time I get a message it would make a sound. With the droid, if you are in gtalk. It wont make a sound so other then checking the phone or looking at the notification light. I don't know a message came in.

Android :: Media Player Sluggish To Play Sounds

Mar 31, 2009

I have an Activity that plays a brief OGG "pop" sound effect when bubbles pop. To keep it fast and to ensure I can play several pops, I create four MediaPlayer instances. I synchronize access to a pool of instances, so I can play up to four pops at once. Once a sound completes, I call seekTo(0) and return the MediaPlayer instance to my pool.

Here is a rough sketch of the code:
// when the activity resumes... for (int i=0; i<4; i++) {
MediaPlayer mp = MediaPlayer.create(context, R.raw.pop);
mp.setOnCompletionListener(this);
mp.setVolume(1f, 1f); players.add(mp); // put into a pool of available players }

Android :: How To Play Synthesized Sounds? (Native Code)

Oct 9, 2010

I wrote an iPhone app some time ago that creates sound programatically. It uses an AudioQueue to generate sound. With the AudioQueue, I can register for a callback whenever the system needs sound, and respond by filling a buffer with raw audio data. The buffers are small, so the sound can respond to user inputs with reasonably low latency.

I'd like to do a similar app on Android, but I'm not sure how. The MediaPlayer and SoundPool classes seems to be for playing canned media from files, which is not what I need. The JetPlayer appears to be some sort of MIDI playback engine. Is there an equivalent to AudioQueue in the Android Java API? Do I have to use native code to accomplish what I want?

Android : Way To Play Notification Sounds In A Loop Manually?

Feb 15, 2010

I am fiddling around with a dialog that pops up and displays an alarm information. (I know, it has been documented that in Android it's "better" style to use notifications instead, but just like the alarm clock I want it to display a dialog on top of whatever you do to really get the users immediate attention - as the user expects this behavior I don't think it's bad style!) Now - the only easy way I found is using the RingtoneManager.getRingtone() function to get a Ringtone object for the type "alarm". Well, I can play that sound now using Ringtone.play() - but it plays the sound only once and I cannot figure out how to let it play endlessly until the user reacts, e.g. by touching the dialog anywhere or dismissing it using Cancel button provided. Does anyone know how this can be accomplished easily?

HTC Eris :: External Speaker Play Sounds While Headphones Plugged In

Apr 6, 2010

The Eternal Speaker plays forever. I never noticed it before today, but my Eris is definitely not disabling music playback through the eternal speaker when I plug headphones (or an adapter, or anything) into the headphone jack. Sound still comes through the earbuds or headphones nice and crisp, just the speaker is ALSO playing the same sound, at the same volume.

This sort of defeats the purpose of one of the main reasons I use headphones- to mute sound for everyone but me. I tried different music players, different headphones, made sure the phone knew they were non-mic headphones, everything. I can't find a setting to tell the speaker to disable when headphones are in- isn't it supposed to be automatic?

Android :: Subscription Play Music Anytime Applications?

Jan 5, 2010

I currently have a Napster To-Go subscription that I use with my Creative Zen, and on my PC at work. But now that I have the Droid, I would much rather stream music to the phone. I currently use Pandora (One) and I like it but I would really like to listen to full albums and make my own playlists; basically listen to whatever I want. I heard that Napster had an App but decided to not to release it, and I will be canceling my subscription as soon as an alternative is found that I can use on the Droid (I never really liked the Napster app anyway). Are there any Subscription Play-anything/Anytime apps?

The following I have looked at:
Napster - No App Release Planned
Rhapsody - Supposed to launch in 2009, Delayed?
Spotify - Supposed to launch in 2010 in US.
Have I missed any alternatives?

Sprint HTC Hero :: MP4 Won't Play Though Picture Folder But Play When I Click On Directly

Nov 17, 2010

I just received an MP4 video that plays really well on my Hero. But it is not visible in the photo gallery of my phone. It's grayed out. When I go into my SD card with a file manager and click on it the movie will play perfectly but it won't play though the photo gallery manager.My real issue is that I have to go into a file manager to find the file and play it instead of using a widget to call up a program that will play it. There is obviously something in the phone that can handle the MP4 format and I just need to know what program to use.

Motorola Droid :: Handle Voice Commands Such As Play Music - Party Shuffle - Play (Artist)

Feb 5, 2010

I was just wondering if the Droid can handle voice commands such as "Play Music", "Party Shuffle", "Play (Artist)", "Play (Song)", "Play (Album)", "Open Email", "Play (Video)", etc, etc; or if there are plans for this in the future firmware? I personally could make use of this, especially "Play (Artist)". I tried to make it play a song and it called my grandma ):

Also, can anyone tell me the difference between voice search and voice dialer? It seems like when I use voice dialer, I say "Call Home" and a list of options pops up of who to call (one choice being Home) (When I wish it would have just automatically called Home), but if I use voice search it automatically does call Home.

Motorola Droid X :: Music Player - Play Songs In Alphabetical Order - Play All Songs By Artist

Jul 31, 2010

Coming from a Iphone to the X the music player is a little lacking. Often I will go into a certain artist and want to play all the songs by that artist, or thumb through all their songs to find a certain one. On the stock music player on the X this seems hard to do (maybe I'm missing something).

if I pull up the music by artist and select a certain artist then it shows me all their albums (The iphone has the option at this point to select all albums and see all the songs of that artist in alphabetical order). The X doesn't give a option to select all albums at this point. If I go to artists and long press on a certain artist I can select play and it will start playing all that artists songs, then I can hit pause and go into the list from that point to see all the songs but they seem to be in a random order making it hard to find a specific song.

I've tried a couple other players and haven't been able to find one that functions like the Iphone, makes it hard to quickly find one song.

I wanted to know if you could turn off every single sound on the inc. My previous phone, enV touch, still played some sound when u press clear to activate voice commands, even in vibration mode. (the voice that says, "please say a command. Beep") Anyways I don't want to accidentally press something or get a notification that makes a sound. All I want to know is if there's any hidden features that could play unwanted sound, even if the phone is in vibrate. I go to school and my phone will get taken away if a teacher hears it so this is important.

HTC EVO 4G : Speaker Ear Sounds Really Static

Jul 8, 2010

All of a sudden my speaker (the one you put to your ear) sounds really static-y. Not signal static, it's very clear that it's the speaker itself or at least something around it vibrating. It kind of sounds a speaker that has been damaged (ripped, or got wet or something even though it has not been wet).

Anyway, I plan on taking it into the sprint store today and having them check it out. Anyone one else with this problem?

I went to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications, and I started going through the list and pushing the "Clear Cache" button. I pushed in on "Settings" and then the screen cleared and went back to my home screen, where the background was some random picture I've never seen before. It didn't recognize my memory card for me to change the picture, so I had to take it out and put it back in. Now, all of my notification sounds are this random song, and when I go to change the notification sound (for gmail or text messages), there are only the ones I have created in the options list; all of the original sounds that were on the phone before are completely gone!
