Android MediaPlayer.reset() is invoking onCompletion

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am having a problem with the following code. I have invoked setPrevNextListener on my MediaController and defined two onClickListeners for both Prev and Next. When I click the next button instead of going forward one track I go forward two tracks. This seems to be due to the fact that onCompletion is being called somehow. Does MediaPlayer.reset() invoke onCompletion? I have included logcat output and my code. Let me know if I’m doing something wrong. Thanks in advance.

Logcat:

How to&Answers:

I did a little digging through the android source and found that any unhandled errors cause MediaPlayer to call the onCompletion handler. In this case you appear to be calling getDuration in either the Idle, Initialized or Error states. Possible from inside the media controller. I’d suggest adding some Log.d() right before any places that call getDuration to see where the call causing the issue is.

Answer:

Add MediaPlayer.OnErrorLisener and return true from the overrided method

mediaPlayer.setOnErrorListener(new MediaPlayer.OnErrorListener() {
                    @Override
                    public boolean onError(MediaPlayer mp, int what, int extra) {
                        return true;
                    }
                });
