MediaMonkey for Android Development Documentation

This page contains information for developers who wish to interface with MediaMonkey for Android.


Intents

MMA has a broadcast receiver to listen for intents from external apps/remote devices.

Intents must have Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON or com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON action and external data Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT.
Note that Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON is a common action which is also received by other players and it's therefore important which player receives it as first. Alternatively, the com.ventismedia.android.mediamonkey.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON action is received only by MMA, and it's usage is the same as for Intent.ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON (Implemented since 1.1.3.0468).


MMA will respond on these 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:


Examples of use:

Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setAction("android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON");
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_DOWN, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE));

getActivity().sendOrderedBroadcast(intent, null);

intent = new Intent();
intent.setAction("android.intent.action.MEDIA_BUTTON");
intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_KEY_EVENT, new KeyEvent(KeyEvent.ACTION_UP, KeyEvent.KEYCODE_MEDIA_PLAY_PAUSE));

getActivity().sendOrderedBroadcast(intent, null);

Attention: Broadcast should be ordered.
