Hi I have a problem with TV channels (m3u). When I want to see TV channel on the car screen it is working, but after few seconds it is skipping to teh next channel and then after anotehr few seconds it skipps to the next channel. Any solution for that? There is the same problem when tried to watch channels directly on my phone

It works scrolling one to one. When you have long list the problem is to return at begin. shoud use left, right, down or up of Rotary for move as Android auto do (Spotify for example). Of course YouTube not works
I can add page up/down buttons on top (in the tool bar). Is it possible to move frocus from the list to the tool bar buttons without scrolling to the first item in the list?

    There are two version of the player:

    1. The first one has support for Android Auto as a media service. This version is available on Google Play - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.aap.fermata
    2. The second one provides the same functionality, but can be launched as an Android Auto application, i.e. with its own interface:



    To install this version, you may either use the Android Auto Apps Downloader (recommended) or, for manual installation, follow the instructions below:

    Installing from PC (adb utility is required):
    • Install adb - https://www.xda-developers.com/install-adb-windows-macos-linux/
    • Connect device to USB
    • Open console and run the following commands:
    • adb push fermata-XXX-auto-universal-armXX.apk /data/local/tmp/fermata.apk
    • adb shell pm install -i "com.android.vending" -r /data/local/tmp/fermata.apk
    • adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/fermata.apk
    Installing from Android (ROOT is required):
    • Install an appropriate universal apk (arm or arm64).
    • Download and install AIO Tweaker - https://github.com/shmykelsa/AA-Tweaker/tags .
    • Start the tweaker, open the apps list, select Fermata Auto in the list, return to the main screen and press the PATCH button. Reboot the device.
    Before connecting to Android Auto:
    • Install the fermata-auto-control apk. This application is only required if you need support for steering wheel media buttons.
    • Start the player, grant permissions and add folders.
    New in 1.7.0 Beta https://github.com/AndreyPavlenko/Fermata/releases/tag/v1.7.0b :
    Youtube web view.
    Basic web browser with support for bookmarks and full screen.
    Gestures support by video and control panel view:
    - Vertical scroll - volume up/down
    - Horizontal scroll:
    1 finger - emulates rw/ff button click (skip 5 seconds by default)
    2 fingers - long click on rw/ff button (skip 20 seconds)
    3 fingers - long click prev/next button (skip 5%)
    Swipe left/right - play prev/next track
    Swipe up/down - play prev/next folder
    Double click - play/pause
    Unfortunately, for both situations (checked or not) netflix gives only sound no picture 😔
    I'll update webkit in the next version. Perhaps, it will help.
    Please update the app to work on AA6.5
    In the new beta version https://github.com/AndreyPavlenko/Fermata/releases/tag/1.6.0 I've implemented support for network folders. Currently only SFTP is supported. In further versions I'm planning to implement support for SMB/Cifs, Google drive and WebDav.
