Media player controls - why not the android built in notification?

Post by *Whee »

Hi,
I was wondering if I could get the default Mediaplayer controls from Android (since Android 10?) in the notifications pane somehow?
The use case is that the built in one let's you control the output of the sound, or is this already a feature of the media player?
Is it clear what i mean or do you need a screenshot?

Best regards,
Whee
P.s. i really appreciate your work and use the app/program on 3 platforms. It's just great

When I created the player, there was no default player notification, so I created my own.
What do you mean with control the output of the sound? Can't you use the volume buttons of your phone for that?

You can really change the output (speaker, Bluetooth, headphone jack), not just the volume on the latest Android versions.

TC just picks up the current output device, does it not?
If you change the output, TC's media player just adapts to that, IME. The playing of the program material may need to be resumed, but TC is adaptive.
A screenshot would help if we haven't addressed the subject fully.

I'm not very happy with the default player interface. On some devices, I need to make the notification larger just to use the buttons.
