#AudioPlayerView

Awesome 

AudioPlayerView is an Android view that loads audio from an url and have basic playback tools.

It makes use of the Android MediaPlayer library.

Unfortunately this gif doesn’t play audio 🙂 check the sample app to hear it.

Update from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1

Change the package repository to jitpack as explained in next section.

Include

Include the Gradle dependency from jitpack

    allprojects {
repositories {
...
maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
}
}
dependencies {
...
compile 'com.github.HugoMatilla:AudioPlayerView:v1.0.1'
}

##Permissions

AudioPlayerView adds automatically the android.permission.INTERNET permission.

Use

Add the view to your xml.

    <com.hugomatilla.audioplayerview.AudioPlayerView
android:id="@+id/player"
...
/>

Use it in your Activity, Fragment or Custom View

    
String url = "url-to-your-mp3-file.mp3"
AudioPlayerView audioPlayerView = (AudioPlayerView) findViewById(R.id.player);
audioPlayerView.withUrl(url);

Callbacks

There are 3 callbacks:

onAudioPreparing: while the file is being downloaded. Use it if you want to show a progress dialog.

onAudioReady: when the file has finished to be downloaded and is about to start playing. You can use it to hide the progress dialog.

onAudioFinished: When the audio has finished playing and is stopped.

    
audioPlayerView.setOnAudioPlayerViewListener(new AudioPlayerView.OnAudioPlayerViewListener() {
@Override
public void onAudioPreparing() {
spinner.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
}
@Override
public void onAudioReady() {
spinner.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
}
@Override
public void onAudioFinished() {
}
});

UI

You can use icons or texts to show the current state of the view: loading, playing or stopped.

The AudioPlayerView extends TextView, so you can do all of the things you would do in a TextView with some considerations.

Icons

For the icons, AudioPlayerView uses icon fonts. When the audio is ready and playing it shows a stop icon, when is finished or it was never started it shows a play button and when is preparing it shows a spinner (spinning).

The spinner icon makes the whole textView spin, so if it has a background color and it is not a round shape you probably won’t get what you expected (the icon to spin) but you will see the whole rectagle spinning. In the sample application you can see how to do it.

Text

If you prefer to use text, add the texts to the xml file, and app:useIcons="false".

    <com.hugomatilla.audioplayerview.AudioPlayerView
...
app:loadingText="loading..."
app:playText="play"
app:stopText="stop"
app:useIcons="false"
/>

###Custom Icons

You can use your own icon fonts.

    <com.hugomatilla.audioplayerview.lib.AudioPlayerView
...
app:loadingText="@string/customLoadingIcon"
app:playText="@string/customPlayIcon"
app:stopText="@string/customStopIcon"
app:useIcons="true"
/>

You can create your own icon fonts with fontello.com

API

The only public method to manage the audio playback is toggleAudio()

It plays the audio if it is stopped or it was never started (previous load), and it stops the audio if it is playing.

Destroy

Dont forget to destroy the AudioPlayerView when you don’t need it anymore. The onDestroy() method of the activity is a good place to have it.

    @Override
protected void onDestroy() {
audioPlayerView.destroy();
super.onDestroy();
}
