Title: [Android] Timeshift / Buffer for Streaming Webradio in Aimp
Post by: cesarius on December 10, 2018, 15:51:27
Hello,

I am using AIMP since some weeks in my Car (Nexus 7 Tablet) and it is working fantastic as Mediapp for playing flac-songs and streaming webradio.

For Webradio I was using xiialive android app in the past. The only thing in AIMP which is missing, is the ability to timeshift the webstream so to fast backward if you wanna hear some minutes/secs of the past stram again. In the Xiialive App, it was possible to configure the amount of time which is saved temporarely for the stream. For Example the last 20min are constantly saved which can be played again. This Buffer is cleared as soon as one switch the Radio station.

Another suggestion for Webradio is a fixed logo that one can associate to each radio station.

Thanks for this nice App.
Cheers,
Cesar

I don't use the Android version, but in the PC version there has "always" been the option to set such a buffer for Internet Radio recording, set by MB instead of time, in Prefs/Player/Internet Radio/Internet Radio Capture/Buffer size for background recording.  You can't back-cue while the stream is playing, but hitting the record button will start the recording at the point the current song began in the buffer.  If you already knew that, my apologies.

As far being able to assign a viz window display image for a radio stream entry, I agree that this would be a nice feature and have seen it suggested/requested before.

You've a good memory :) : https://www.aimp.ru/forum/index.php?topic=57713.0

I hope that both features including OTG-Support will be added some day to this great media player.
