Post by Pigeon14 »

What would be the command/extras for sending an intent for media monkey to start playing music or to play a certain song?

I believe those commands are only for the windows version?

That is what I was looking for. Thanks!

Now as for how to utilize it, I can get the sync to start by creating this intent in tasker:

Code: Select all

Send Intent [ 
 Action: com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_START_SYNCHRONIZATION
 Cat: None
 Mime Type: 
 Data:
 Extra: 
 Extra: 
 Package: 
 Class: 
 Target: Broadcast Receiver
]
But I cannot figure out how to use "com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON". Any tips? I'm likely using the extras wrong.

You have to put extra "KeyEvent" object as an instance of android.view.KeyEvent class,
what tasker app are you using? Are you able to add such an object?
The KeyEvent object must have to set action as KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN AND KeyCode according to what you want to do,
supported key codes:

KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HEADSETHOOK
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PLAY
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PAUSE
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_NEXT
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PREVIOUS
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_FAST_FORWARD
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_REWIND
KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_STOP

I figured out how to send an intent using java following the example on the wiki page. It works fine but if I change "android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON" to "com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON" it does not work anymore. I attached pictures of my tasker function.

If I delete function 4 it will pause/play the currently running media player including mediamonkey. If I delete function 4 nothing happens.

There was a regression and "com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON" does not work correctly (fixed in next build),
but a better way to achieve this goal in "Tasker" is via Action from Category "Media"/"Media Control" and you can specify command and app. Did you try it?

I did not try that but it would have saved me A LOT of time haha. Thanks for the info on the regression!
