Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-403) Media.seekTo on first play
Date Fri, 30 Mar 2012 16:02:30 GMT


Simon MacDonald commented on CB-403:

I looked into this issue a bit and it seems doable. The common JS code calls a native "create"
method when a new Media object is created. However, on Android there is no native implementation
of this command.

If you try and call seekTo on a Media object before play it will not work as the Media object
is not prepared on the native Android side. We'd have to change things around a bit so that
the constructor prepares the audio so that it is already in a state where it can accept play
or seek commands. 

The only problem is the "new Media()" command is synchronous in JavaScript so a subsequent
call to seek or play may invoke the native code when the player is in an invalid state.
