Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-129) Phonegap breaks audio in Android
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 15:29:55 GMT


Egg Deng commented on CB-129:

Hi Joe,

I currently have this issue using Gingerbread (2.3.3) on a Samsung Galaxy
(GT-I9000). I'm afraid it's been six weeks since I last dealt with it so I
can't give you much in the way of details right now. It has previously been
reported by others, for example

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.0, 1.2.0
>         Environment: Android

>             Fix For: 1.6.0
> Using the Media object, it is possible to play one or more audio files no more than a
maximum of 7 times, at which point it becomes necessary to force quit the app to continue
to have audio. This is the old phonegap issue #208, which was supposed to be fixed in 1.1.0.
> It happens presumably because "there are a finite amount of OpenCore instances for media
playback" ( The documentation
recommends using media.release() to free resources, but this function is broken. Instead of
releasing the resource just used, it tries to release the next resource to be made available
and so, depending on where it is used, either breaks audio altogether or has no effect at
all. Once the limit is reached, the bug will also prevent any other applications from using
audio until the original application is terminated.
