From my experience CD players and Mp3 players start the same track over again if you hit back once, you have to hit back twice to go back a track. Again i don't really care either way, was just so use to having to hit back twice it messed me up a little bit until i figure out what was going on. 

 

The TV apps do this type of thing.  If you are more than about 10 seconds into the track and hit back, it returns to the beginning of that track, otherwise, it goes to the previous one - the net effect being that two backs take you to the previous track if you are into the current one. 

 

I took this logic from the aforementioned old box behavior.

The beta app didn't fix this Bluetooth audio issue for me (using Honor 5C phone).

As mentioned by others works fine in browser or Kodi with Emby addon for me also, It doesn't make a difference either if I download a track and play it offline from the Android app.

Any other suggestions to help fix this?

 

There is no log in the app for today's date though I've been testing this out, unless the beta app stores logs in a different location to the usual?

 

Thanks

Not sure what you're referring to but if you're referring to a delay then no that is something we haven't looked at adding yet.

No not a delay issue, the app for me just can't play music over Bluetooth without it totally falling apart.
It starts just fine, then gets slow and stuttery until it can't play anymore.

As I say this behaviour only happens when using the app, either streaming music from the server or playing offline downloaded files.

I can play video files using the app and send the audio to a bluetooth device just fine oddly.

I've tried 3 different Bluetooth audio devices with exactly the same result.

Thanks, in case it matters the phone is on Android 6.

To be honest Luke I have a feeling it's something peculiar about my phone or else many others here would be reporting it, the result is extreme.

The problem is my phone is a Honor 5 which uses a (horrible) Huawei skinned version of Android, I run it with Nova launcher to mitigate that but of course that's only a cosmetic solution and the Huawei EMUI system is still running.

 

Unless you're unlucky enough to have a Huawei phone this is something you may have trouble replicating.!

I can replicate the problem too, and in my case it's definitely a problem with the phone. I use a Vernee Apollo Lite and the playback is as described.

With any other Android device I was able to test there's no problem with bluetooth audio.

Comparing the specs between our two phones I can't really see any common denominator other than Bluetooth 4.1, which can't be anything significant I would have thought.

 

Good to know I'm not alone though.

I can report that the beta fixed the choppy playback for me :) 

It also fixed an unrelated issue where the playback stopped after every track (only happened on certain albums)

Android 6.0 on an LGMS631 

Server 3.3.0

 

the only thing that is a problem now:

I can't seem to jump to a spot in the track by tapping the progress bar. Not a big deal for music playback, but if you have an 8hr audiobook and have to find your spot this is not going to be fun.

Thanks for the feedback. We'll take a look at the progress bar.

When this happens, what kind of music files are you playing?

any playback of mp3 files ... I checked it on music as well as audiobooks(library doesn't show up in the beta app). I created a playlist and behaviour is the same.

For me it's also mp3 files. And the result is the same regardless of whether the file is synced or streamed.

Hmmm... Is that Android? I'm on 2.9.90, so maybe you are on Android TV?
