Poweramp should read KEYCODE_MEDIA inputs


Recommended Posts

On head units, the physical buttons won't work on Poweramp 3. 
The physical buttons work great on Poweramp 2 build 588. 
They won’t work on Poweramp 3 only.

The reason is because Poweramp 3 won't read KEYCODE_MEDIA inputs. 
It should read the following:




Once again, Poweramp 2 build 588 reads these inputs; Poweramp 3 doesn't . 


Please, support KEYCODE_MEDIA inputs again.

Thanks for the request. On Android, these keys are (should be) read by system, which reroutes them to MediaSession handler, which is, of course, implemented and works in Poweramp. I guess some head units don't follow that and some additional workarounds are required. I plan to get one of such headunits into my test lab - hopefully this will help with resolving issues like that, though, the head unit I plan to get (PX5 based Android 8 ) may have no issues with that.

Excellent, I have a px5 head unit with android 8 and the problem presents itself. It’s a known problem; it isn’t just me, as you can check here and here.


The problem is with steering wheel buttons. They work on Poweramp 2 588, and don’t work on Poweramp 3.


Thank you.
