General :: Pressing Play / Pause Button On Headset Keeps Turning Phone On

Mar 26, 2014

Anyways, whenever i'm listening to music, and I press the play/pause button on my headset to control my music tracks, my phone turns on. This get's really annoying because every time my phone turns on, it stays on for a few seconds, and this really kills battery life. I've tried lurking around my phone's settings and even my launcher settings.

My phone is a rooted HTC Wildfire S running AOKP custom rom with Nova Launcher Prime. And if it makes any difference, I'm using the "Start" lock screen from the Play Store.

General :: Simulate Headset Unplugged Event To Pause Audio?

Oct 25, 2012

I own a GSM Galaxy Nexus and I picked up the official car dock yesterday, and I've noticed that it doesn't have an elegant method for pausing currently playing media when a disconnect is detected, like how when you unplug a headset and supported media apps will pause (e.g. Pandora or Google Music).

EDIT: Originally I was using Tasker's built-in media button functionality for pausing music, but that actually was triggering a global play/pause toggle which would toggle all apps at the same time, resulting in unwanted resumed playback from Pandora and Google Music. I managed to resolve the issue by using the Locale Headphone Button Plugin instead. With it I can issue a non-toggle pause event that only pauses tracks that are currently playing. There is absolutely no need to simulate a headset event.

Android :: Way To Pause Method In Progress To Wait For Button Be Pressed?

Oct 25, 2010

Basically I have created a blackjack game (first using just java) and it falls under an infinite while loop (this is so that the deck data is kept and everything works well. So first it deals the cards and then it needs to wait for either the hit button (which is displayed) or the stand button (which is displayed) to be clicked. I initially did this with a while loop that would keep checking if buttons were hit (basically when a button was hit, a static int would change and stuff would occur). However this just causes the droid to freeze up (thus far anyway) and also not refresh. So please someone tell me there is some way I can have my method pause until a button is pressed? I also need to know the proper way to use invalidate() so that my textviews, pictureviews and such can be updated as the methods change them.

Android :: Locked Up My Device?

Sep 11, 2009

I've been able to lock the screen twice with the current implementation of the app I'm writing (MediaDroid). It's very inconsistently (2 out of about 100 runs) and I'm not sure how to trigger it, so I'm assuming it's some sort of race condition or the number of threads I'm spawning.

The activity I'm working on loads a gallery of thumbnails from the sdcard. I believe I'm using most of the best practices described by Romain Guy from his Google I/O talk "Make your Android UI Fast and Efficient". I've implemented an image cache with SoftReferences wrapping my Bitmaps and created an Efficient Adapter for the gallery using the ViewHolder pattern.

What I am doing, which I question, is loading each image via a thread as it is retrieved from the ImageCache...I pass back a default image if the bitmap is null, then update the default image in the ImageViews with the Bitmap is loaded from the sdcard; I'm doing this by posting to a Handler in the Adapter from the thread that loads the image.

So as you can imagine a number of threads are created, about 25 at a time, as the user swipes through the image gallery. Once the user reaches the end of the gallery, the images are only reloaded if the garbage collector has collected them due to the SoftReference. I've been impressed by how well this worked....until the bug mysteriously started appearing. What has happened both times is, all the images in the gallery show the default images, then I get an ANR and with the force close or wait option, I hit force close and the ANR dialog shrinks (but doesn't go away) and the background goes black...then everything just's the logs where I believe things start to lock up.


If I press on the screen I get nothing on the device, but in the logs I get


And I have to power down the device.

So if the number of threads is the problem I'm thinking of loading all the bitmaps when the app is first initiated, probably using the AsyncTask class. A question I have though about this is that the docs say that you can only call execute() once...what's happens if some of my Bitmaps are garbage collected?? Do I then call individual threads to reload? I've looked through some of the Google apps, Shelves and Photostream, but they don't seem to be using Bitmaps wrapped in SoftReferences.

HTC Incredible : Play / Pause / Skip Buttons Gone From Lock Screen / Get Back?

Jun 10, 2010

In the past, when listening to music on my Incredible, if I locked the phone the music would continue to play just fine. If I wanted to pause/play/skip a song, all I had to do was hit the power button and above the "Slide to unlock" bar there was a music control bar.

Now, my music still plays, but those buttons are gone from the lock screen. This is a pain because in order to pause my music when someone comes to my desk at work I have to hit the power button, unlock the phone, slide down the notifications window, wait for the music app to load then hit pause.

Anyone know how to get these buttons back?

Motorola Droid :: Mapping Camera Button To Pause Music

Nov 9, 2009

The camera button just sits there useless until the camera is used. How about letting us map that to a function? Personally, I would like to be able to use it as a Pause/Play toggle. When I am out and about listening to music, I very often need to pause. Currently, this requires pulling out the phone, pressing the power button, swiping it open, and (if the music screen is up) pressing pause. That is WAY too long, and a simple hardware button would be perfect.

Media :: Create Play / Pause And Next Shortcut / Music Controls On Lock Screen?

Apr 7, 2010

I'm hoping for some pointers. I simply want two buttons.. nothing more, to allow me to control my music.I know, I know. "Why not just use the music widget?" Cause it's ugly (in my opinion).With Bettercut, I'm aware that you can create your own shortcut, but you have to have the source code or some sort of.androidaction.blah in order to create it. I'm just curious if I could use that or if there's something out there that's better.I don't need to know the artist or the song that's playing, I just, well, I miss the days of double clicking my home button and hitting next or stop with my iPhone. That's what it boils down to. So, if there's a way to get the music controls on the lock screen... well, that would even be better.Anyone have some suggestions? I have searched and searched for some sort of resolution, but it's been to no avail. Or, I could have just been searching for the wrong thing.

Android :: Getting Audio To Play Through Earpiece

Jan 22, 2010

I currently have code that reads a recording in from the devices mic using the AudioRecord class and then playing it back out using the AudioTrack class.My problem is that when I play it out it plays vis the speaker phone.I want it to play out via the ear piece on the device.Here is my code:public class LoopProg extends Activity {
boolean isRecording; //currently not used
AudioManager am;
int count = 0;
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
am = (AudioManager) getSystemService(Context.AUDIO_SERVICE);
while(count <= 1000000){
Record record = new Record();;
count ++;
Log.d("COUNT", "Count is : " + count);
public class Record extends Thread
{ static final int bufferSize = 200000;
final short[] buffer = new short[bufferSize];
short[] readBuffer = new short[bufferSize];
public void run() {
isRecording = true;
int buffersize = AudioRecord.getMinBufferSize(11025,
AudioRecord arec = new AudioRecord(MediaRecorder.AudioSource.MIC,
AudioTrack atrack = new AudioTrack(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC,
int ok = am.getRouting(AudioManager.ROUTE_EARPIECE);
Log.d("ROUTING", "getRouting = " + ok);
Log.d("SPEAKERPHONE", "Is speakerphone on? : " + am.isSpeakerphoneOn());
Log.d("SPEAKERPHONE", "Is speakerphone on? : " + am.isSpeakerphoneOn());
byte[] buffer = new byte[buffersize];
while(isRecording) {, 0, buffersize);
atrack.write(buffer, 0, buffer.length);
isRecording = false;
As you can see if the code I have tried using the AudioManager class and its methods including the deprecated setRouting method and nothing works, the setSpeatPoneOn method seems to have no effect at all, neither does the routing method.Has anyone got any ideas on how to get it to play via the earpiece instead of the spaker phone?

Android :: Play Raw Audio From C++ Side

Feb 22, 2010

I need to be able to stream audio from a custom file format on the C++ side of the Android system. I am working on porting a custom media player and need to be able to open a custom file and stream audio from it. This is important as I do not think porting the whole player to JAVA is feasible from a performance stand point and moving the audio buffers through the JNI interface I believe will be too slow to keep a decent frame rate. I can handle the video on the NDK side through OpenGL ES, but the Audio I have no idea how to make this happen.
