Hey, yes I did it. I use Poweramp, does it depends on the music app?

Thank u for this useful mod.
In my opinion, it'd be nice to add an option, which is not directly related to media control, but surely concerns the extended usability of the hardware buttons: the possibility of controlling the pointer in the text fields with volume buttons just, like they were keyboard arrows (left/right or right/left, depending on i.e. user choice / hardware buttons placement / current screen rotation... ).
Similiar mod has been included in Xblast Tools (btw it is the only Xblast mod which I really use, would be great if I can finally uninstall whole Xblast)...
That one makes writing much lot easier, believe me, as you do not have to aim with your finger at 1mm gap between letters if you find out that you made a mistake, which - at least for me - is the one of the most annoying issues of touch screens (and on-screen keyboard apps...) in general.
I find it a good idea, as the mods related to a greater utilization of hardware buttons would be aggregated in one xposed module, then.

Would be glad if you at least consider above idea ;]

Thx for a great job.

I currently have two media players (BeyondPod for podcasts, Poweramp for music) and I can't control the BeyondPod music player with this module.
Could you please make that module 'remember' which player I used the last time or/and set which player can be controlled with your app?
That would really make the app even more awesome and useful because I currently listen to a lot of podcast and would like to control it with your app.
Keep the great work on!

I'm afraid that's not possible, as this mod is only sending the media signals and it's up to the phone how to handle them.

Yeah, I really don't have a <4.0 phone, but this time I've thoroughly compared the APIs and it seems I've underestimated the differences. Next version will surely work, but it's gonna take a while.

then request from me :

• ability to use call/uncall from headset (maybe already work but only read news from Portal)
• ability to manage sound when headset is enable (like when music start, sound start @ 20%)
• ability to use TTS to know who call you, like read name is available
• ability to bypass longress on HTC and 4.x android rom (google now )

And if you can do that, i will be happy to make you a prez and icon app... deal or not ??

I don't really get what you meant by "sound start @ 20%", but about the rest... this mod is supposed to control the media only. Sorry.

This may come in handy when phone is in our pocket. heheh

Anyways, Thanks for this one.

Yeah, it's totally going to be added. But, as I see in the Android API, headsets have only one button?

Headsets can have multiple buttons? It that headset USB or what?

Well, those buttons were requested for phones that didn't have a camera key. The keys are working ONLY when they are physical (as the title suggests). As for the home key, my phone don't have a physical home key, so I'll need to investigate more thoroughly to find the cause.

Framework installed, module activated in framework and restarted twice. Don't work

It seems that it does depend on the way the app handles the media signals. If it doesn't at all, then it won't work.

Maybe I could start another mod for handling physical buttons for other purposes, yes, but this mod is supposed to be media control only. Sorry.

Will it be possible to add pressing both volume up and down to simulate play/pause? I have an HTC one so no keys at all. Thanks

If I disable the headset controls for Poweramp BeyondPod starts and works great with your mod.
But of course I use my headset controls for Poweramp =/.
Well at least I have found an workaround for this problem.

I'm going to add the power button instead as a possible button.

So, when the music starts the volume is set to a specified level? I think I can do that.

Dear "XspeedPL" unfortunately we are limited to 8 thanks per day only otherwise i would have kept thanking you for the every post, that you've put with changelog, of your module.

Today i had decided to look for a headphone with forward and rewind button you just saved me a lot of headache. You have saved millions of music lovers lives. Also, every other free app available on play store, has been tried by me, for the same but all have failed. Hope this one works on my rooted Samsung Galaxy Pocket 5300, Gingerbread 2.3.6

Thanks
