Issue Reporting / Re: Simple Song Collector Error
« on: August 26, 2023, 02:19:07 pm »
Did you try to update the app from the pinned thread where I always post them?  Same thread where you got the original?  Google breaks the app fairly often and I post an update to the original link within a day or so.

This is the latest and should get you going.

If you already have the songs downloaded to the device, then you do not need an internet data connection.  Cell service at ball fields was always assumed to be limited so it is a design goal of the app to not require an internet connection during playback.

Ljteems:  the most recent update to the song collector should fix the issue you are seeing.  I created that update yesterday in response to the first report of the issue.  It is available in the original song collector thread,  under the new release post for song collector, and here just to be sure:

You would need to download the update from that link and then install that new version.  You can first uninstall the old version just to be sure when you update it is in fact the latest.

Is this in the Walkout Song app or the Song collector app?

I have made an attempt at that using the new catalyst mode in the m1/m2 macs, but the emulation of the iOS music player is very poor... you cannot play songs from the cloud, the player does not report the current playback time so the app can't stop the song on configured duration, the volume control doesn't work, etc.   I will keep an eye on the catalyst interface as new Mac versions are released to see if any of that gets fixed.  Until then it isn't really an option for me to support.

The wake-up speaker option was actually already released a week or so ago on the Android version of the app.  If you get the latest update, you should see the option in the audio section of the settings page of the app.  Please let us know if that option works for you.

Issue Reporting / Re: Music plays randomly

I have never heard a report of random music playing from the app in the 10 years the app has been released so you must have some pretty unique situation going there.  Not really sure what to suggest to figure out what is going on.  If the song title isn't showing in the top right of the app, then it really doesn't seem likely that the app is actually triggering that playback.  It seems more likely that some other app or maybe the Apple Music app is going rogue and playing things. 

Are the random songs actual songs you have added and configured in the app?  Are they songs in your library on the device?  What type of communication link do you use with the audio equipment?  Any chance someone else is taking control of that equipment?  Have you ever heard the oddity when not connected with external equipment?

I have an Android beta prepared that should address this issue.  The update has a new "Send external speaker wakeup" option on the settings.  If that is enabled, the app will check if the current audio route is through an external speaker.  If so, it will send a 1.5 second inaudible audio chunk to the speaker before playing announcements or songs to get the speaker ready to play.

Beta for this version 2.5.38 should start today 5/30/23 and anyone with the app installed can email to be added to the beta participant list.

The other major app uses two tap hacks to work around the issues with these devices.

The ION pathfinder is still in transit... FedEx seems to have lost track of it 😡.  Hopefully, they will figure out where it is and get it here early next week.  In the meantime, I had a thought on a possible workaround that might tell me how likely my solution would work.  I think you could download a white noise mp3 file (easy to find on Google), create a dummy player, assign it the white noise for a song, turn its announcement to none, and then tap that player briefly before tapping the real player.  That should allow you a simple way to wake the speaker if it's been long enough for it to go to sleep.

What model of bluetooth speaker are you using? 

I am working on a solution for some very poorly designed bluetooth speakers that go to sleep very quickly and require several seconds of actual audio signal to wake up.  For these specific speakers, an aux cord is not even a solution because the sleep and wakeup issue happens with aux or bluetooth.  Android actually does a pretty good job with bluetooth and the aux cord recommendation is not really applicable.  I am currently waiting on delivery of an ION pathfinder so I can test the solution.  Luckily, it seems there are thousands of these pieces of garbage speakers available in either open box or used condition because of how often they are returned.

It's a pretty tricky implementation because I have to send some audio signal to the speaker for the wakeup to occur, but it cannot be audible so the audience won't hear it, and it is only applicable for these poorly designed speakers so I have to make a toggle on or off in the settings.

Anytime this occurs with Apple music songs, I would recommend a force kill of the Apple music app as that is the software that is actually playing the music and reporting playback position to the Walkout Song App.

Can you do a share data from the settings page of the app and send to so I can see I can duplicate the issue here?
