View Full Version : Froyo Bluetooth AVRCP Problem

07-16-2010, 12:43 AM
Froyo (FRF91) has changed the way AVRCP is handled by my bluetooth headset. Ambling no longer grabs control of AVRCP when it is playing. Pressing the Play/Pause, FF/RW will call the last application which successfully registered.

Are there any plans to address this and if so is there an ETA. I've noticed in other forums that this is a pretty common issue that media applications are having with Froyo.

Thanks for producing the best audiobook player available,

Thanks for letting us know about this issue.

We will investigate to see what the AVRCP change in Froyo was, and what changes we need to make to make in the player to work with Froyo.

We have released the Ambling BookPlayer v2.02 which supports the new Froyo audio focus system.

For users with Froyo devices the player will now pause the audiobook when another audio interruption is about to occur (such as Google Maps giving navigation instructions) and then when the audio interruption has finished it will resume playing the audiobook again.

The player will resume 2.5 seconds prior to the point where the audio interruption occurred so that you can pick up the story before it was interrupted.
