Issue Reporting / Re: Voice Announcement not working right.
« on: September 21, 2018, 07:57:37 pm »
Yes, this was resolved in iOS 11, but I have not retested with iOS 12 yet.  I will try to retest that with iOS 12 in the next day or so and see how it works for me.  The fix for the problem did require some kludgy delays to work around oddities in the Apple music player and the system volume manipulation required to fade the walkout songs.  I would not be surprised at all if the new iOS requires tweeks of those delays.

Long term, if it was me, I would use a long aux cable to the bluetooth speaker or use purchased songs rather than Apple Music so my app can do the fading using the audio samples rather than the system volume.

It has to be this hard because the music industry wants to prevent you from sharing music at all costs and all music suppliers assume you will only use their music in their app...

Now, to help with your issue.  What are you using to download songs?

Enhancement Requests / Re: Add music from Amazon prime music

Google music does not yet provide any player api for any of their music services.  I have been watching for one. 

In theory, I could provide support for playback of any youtube url, but the app would then require continuous internet access for playback as it would break youtube terms of service to cache anything.  Would that still be of value with that condition?

Are you using Android or Apple and where are the songs you were hoping to use?

General Discussion / Re: Android announcer voice

Most people will just find a coach or parent with a good voice and have them record announcements for each player either within the app or with a third party voice recorder and then import the files.

There is also the possibility to have a professional do them... Casey Motter is the stadium announcer for the Atlanta Braves and he has a little side business making announcements for apps like this.  His contact info is on Facebook at AllstarIntros.  You just give him a call to negotiate a price, send him a screen shot of your team, and he will email back the announcements for you to import.  i think he charges around $4 per player.

Does this happen with all songs or just one in particular?

Is it Apple or Android?

What is the source of the music file?

That sounds like you are now using songs from An Apple Music subscription?  The player that Apple provides for those is quite buggy and inconsistent.  I implemented many workarounds to smooth out the bugs, but the things you mention still happen occasionally when you first start a session and if your device has any issues with marginal internet connectivity.  If those hiccups are unnacceptable, I would recommend returning to imported songs or just purchasing songs individually from iTunes.  With those types of songs, the app has direct access to the audio data and I can use a much better player that I designed.

I suspect Spotify support will be years away if ever.  Spotify just does not seem to care for third party apps.

On the settings page the two default duration settings only apply to the walkout song page and the between inning page.  On the other pages, the default duration is full length of the song.  Does that explain the duration issue you described?

Issue Reporting / Re: Is Napster compatible with this app?
« on: June 06, 2018, 07:12:10 am »
No, I'm afraid it is not...

Napster, like all the other subscription music services, encrypts and hides the song files on your device to prevent theft of songs you are basically renting.  Napster does have an interface for third party apps to integrate with for song playback without access to the files, but they will not allow integration with commercial apps like Walkout Song DJ without written approval.  I requested that approval back in February, but have heard nothing back at this point.  If they ever approve it, I will definitely do the work to integrate.  Perhaps you could let Napster know you would like to see that integration to see if that might stir them to respond to me.

I'm not sure what defaults you mean that are not set?   Have you tried just opening the file manager on the device, looking in the music files, tap on the trimmed file?  That should bring up the open with walkout songs option.   If it does not bring up that option and just opens the file in some other app, then you do have a preference set that you should be able to clear with the settings app like I described in my last response.

As for an add file to the imported announcement list...  I suppose I could add that in the future.  I will add that to the feature request list.

Since you are combining the song and announcement to one file, have you tried just adding your file as the players song rather than announcement?   Since Best mp3 editor adds the trimmed song to the Android music library, you should see the trimmed song in the Android music files.

I suspect what happened is that at some point you opened a music file with some other app and selected the 'always' button so it no longer presents a choice to open with Walkout Song DJ. 

You can test that by going to your settings app, choosing apps or application manager, then tap the three dots on the top right and select "reset app preferences"

The option to share the file should only be based on the file type and the app you are trying to share it with.   

What app are you using to share the file with?  Is it the same app as you used the first time?

If you can email the file that is not working to, I can try it here and see if there is anything prohibiting Android from recognizing it as an audio file.

Is this issue with the Android or iOS version?

When you say you can't import the rest... at what point in the process does it fail?
