Hello,

While watching video on MX player and when i try to increase/decrease volume, brightness and seeking forward backward with one finger slide, it is not happening directly. In version 1.7.19 it happens directly. Post that version, i need 2 taps of finger to do the above actions. With the 1st tap, you will get that seekbar and then you need to tap 2nd and slide for those actions. This is very annoying and I REPEAT THIS PROBLEM IS NOT THERE IN VERSION 1.17.19.

I tried the below troubleshooting steps on the latest version and no luck in still using version 1.7.19 because it's free of that problem:

1. Restarted phone
2. Checked all MX player settings
3. Installed MX player codec (ARMV7)
4. Force stopped and cleared cache and data
5. Uninstalled and reinstalled the app.
6. Tried few older versions as well.

Disable System audio panel from Settings 》Audio. It won't appear again.

Hi, is there also a way to disable the message, when you increase the volume above 10, when headset is plugged in? Every morning and evening I have to increase volume to 13, and have to deal with this message. Message would make more sense once you exceed the default max of 15.

It's android's internal alert. I think it can't be disabled in the current version. But, I am not sure that whether it's possible to disable it permanently or not.

Is there any workarounds?

No, there is no workaround because this message is not from application process but from Android audio system service. And Google did not make any way to remove it because this is violation to EU regulation.

Answer: Blame Google. See this: https://groups.google.com/d/topic/mx...GAo/discussion
Quote of answer from original Google Groups thread:

This is an Android system "feature". Google added it to comply with EU laws. The EU requires companies to warn of "excessive volume on headphones" to protect your hearing.

If you go into MX Player Settings -> Audio -> Enable System Volume Panel, this will bring up the Android system volume panel whenever you change volume. This will bring up that volume warning at 50% that you see in other apps, so that you can clear it.

The reason this doesn't show in MX Player normally is because MX Player doesn't use the Android system volume panel by default. MX uses its own volume panel, the much cleaner, smaller one that we are used to seeing.

The warning shows up on Google Play Music because that app uses the system volume. If you are on headphones with any other app that uses the Android system volume panel, you would see the same warning.

Note that you'll have to manually acknowledge that warning every time you restart the device, as the phone system does not "remember" that you cleared it when the device restarts.
