Description
Simple music control widget capable of hiding itself while there is no track playing. It is designed to be used with WidgetLocker Lockscreen, however it is possible to use it on your homescreen as well.

Why would I code something like this?
I have switched from Sense to CyanogenMod, and I just hated its lockscreen. So I installed WidgetLocker, and set it up so it looks and behaves like HTC Sense lockscreen. However, I missed some decent music control, because all the widgets made me start playback in my pocket when I did not wanted to. So I just coded my own widget able to hide itself when there is no active playback. Since there is a lot of users with various requests, I am working on support of more players all the time.

would it be possible to add support for music mod?
my phone has music mod instead of the stock music player, but it doesn't work with your widget.
i've actually been looking for a widget like this for a while.

Actually, I do have modded stock player (bundled with CyanogenMod), and one of my testers has Music MOD installed along with Sense player, and it works for both of us. Have you tried switching between auto-detection and Android player in widget settings? And most importantly - do you have 1.1 upgrade from Market?

got the latest version of the widget, tried all the widget's settings, even tried removing the pre-installed music-mod and re-installing it from market.
it still doesn't detect music-mod.

EDIT: problem seems to only occur with music-mod 1.8, perhaps because that one is designed to be installed next to the stock music player rather than replacing it.
got it working for now with a music-mod 1.7.5.2

EDIT2: just thought of 2 things that might make the widget even better:
1: let the user set the time-out in seconds using a text(number) entry box(if possible one with arrow buttons like the alarm clock and calendar apps), rather than a slide.
i find 1 minute to be too long, and immediate too quick.
2: allow the user to set an action when the widget is touched in it's hidden state, a few possible actions: do nothing(like it's now), launch music player, play/unpause music, reveal widget for a short time.

great idea, kudos!

I wish this were able to be implemented into other players, as I use PowerAMP.

But I love the idea, I always wanted a feature like this so I didn't have my PowerAMP music widget displayed on my lockscreen at all times.

Thanks for the great ideas! I will focus on following:
- Install Music Mod 1.8.0 and analyse what is going on there
- Hiding the widget on unlock the way HTC lockscreen does it
- Change the slider to shorter intervals
- Short reveal of the widget on touch

thanks, works great.
still keeping music-mod 1.7.5.2 though, because it acts more stock than 1.8.

i did notice the widget interferes with itself, but it's not that big of a problem.
when you use the widget on multiple screens(so either on 2 homescreen pages, or on your homescreen and on widgetlocker) pressing play/pause on one of the widgets doesn't trigger a hide/reveal on the other.
but i think fixing that would require an underlying service which would also mean redoing a lot of your work.

Yeah, unfortunately, the widget is not designed for more than one instance :-(. But sice it's designed specifically for WidgetLocker, I guess you can just use some full-featured widget (Pure Music, Music Mod, etc.) in your launcher, just as I do :).

Warning
It is not compatible with Samsung (I am working on it).

Why would I code something like this?
I missed some decent music control, because all the widgets made me start playback in my pocket when I did not wanted to. So I just coded my own widget able to hide itself when there is no active playback.

Hi, I have Samsung and widgetlocker (currently uninstalled because of previous battery life issues, but it's been a few months so I should test again), so I'm interested in this but obviously not able to help with feedback. I thank you for getting on the Samsung coding.

I do have two questions, what happened with the widgets with playback in your pocket and why? Was your phone/screen activating itself/turning on > your leg would touch the widget > suddenly have music playing? Am I understanding correct?

Second, and I think this is a dumb question, but I'll ask anyways. This will take up the space for the widget whether the widget is hidden or not, right? So, nothing could be underneath (probably a bad term) which will be in the foreground when the widget is hidden, right? I think that's maybe impossible, but definitely cool if possible, I'd have no problem with this going on top of something like power control when I have music on. Just a dumb thought.

Can't wait to try it out.

randomelements: Thanks. I actually thought about this for a while, but it took me some time to get my ass up and code it :).
munwaioblivious: There will be possibility to turn the background off. I did not even want it there, but it seemed to be a good way to support all possible wallpapers for the beginning. However, I am still clueless about the Samsung player.
alovell83: The problem was, that my phone kept waking itself up via buttons and when the display was up, it had no hard time to control the playback. So i was just pressing Play/Next in my pocket by my leg. To address your other question: it is not possible to cover one widget with another. The slots (4x1) are taken all the time, even while the widget is hidden.

Make it compatible with winamp and a bit darker background and it will fit perfect with minimalistic text widget:D:p

I was working on a minimalist look on my phone and couldn't find a proper widget for the music player. Stock widgets and Pure Music weren't enough.

So in the end, I had to wait 24h to find a solution. What took you so long ? :D


THANK YOU, this is perfect !:)

beyondpod

I use beyondpod for my podcasts.

Can your widget control beyondpod too? I would love that functionality...

    I am so nice guy! I actually did it today :). But it is just experimental feature for now.

    Changelog
    1.4:
    - Added battery saving mode that consumes almost zero energy (if you had any battery issues with Phantom, simply uninstall it and install again; it should disappear)
    - Added inverted theme with black buttons on white background
    - It is now possible to start music application by touching widget background (experimental feature, might not work correctly)
    - Bug fix: The background no longer disappears

    Was there ever a feature to let you change the font and font size of the 'artist - track'

    Would it be easy to implement?

    The only way I can change the font is changing the entire system fonts.

    It is planned, but don't know when I will actually do it :).
