On an LG Nexus 5X running Lineage OS with microG.
I've timed it and after 6ish min of streaming a station playback will stop and the station must be selected again in the application to keep playing. I"m seeing this behavior while streaming KEXP and am currently trying with other stations.
Just experienced this with the stream WTUL. Stopped after 17 min. This eliminates the possibility of the error being isolated to one stream or consistent in the time it takes to stop.
Do you still have this problem? I use the app daily but I've never been able to reproduce this issue. It looks like Android 6 introduced a standby mode for battery optimization, this could be the reason why the app is stopped maybe?
I have experienced the same issue on my Samsung A3 2017 (SM-A320FL) running Android 8.0.0. While playing Radio Bayern 2 and also others the program tops the stream after about 5 / 6 minutes.
@matteRhorn I've tried to test the application on a tablet with Android 9 and I've noticed two things:
None of this happened with older version of Android (older than 8). I've only observed this behavior though, I haven't debugged it so I don't fully understand what's going on. Somehow after v8 they have introduced this automatic block for background processes but I don't know how to disable it in the application. The tablet has a specific option for this in the settings, but even if I flag it the app still will be stopped.
