View Full Version : No Launch with Play Button
09-20-2011, 08:47 PM
Previously when I pressed the play button on my headset the BookPlayer would start.
Now that doesn't happen.
I seem to remember that being an option in Preferences but it doesn't appear there now.
Was that function deleted in an "update"?

The handling of which application gets the Bluetooth buttons has been problematic on the Android. There is an nice API where applications ask for control of the buttons, but the problem is that the default music player grabs the buttons away on various events.
Prior to the last release we competed with the default media player by re-registering for control of the buttons every couple of seconds. We recently found some specific events where the default media player grabbed the buttons and put in some code to specifically grab them back when those events occurred, instead of asking for them every couple of seconds. It appears that there are still some other events where the default media player is also grabbing the buttons.
We are looking for a way to get the buttons back after the notification event, or we will go back to just asking for them every couple of seconds again in our next release.
