Bluetooth Autoplay in Car
Friday 23rd of July 2010
This is a growing problem with cars that have built-in media centers such as Ford Sync and Subaru Media Hub. This also happens with some bluetooth headphones. When the droid is connected using the headphone jack it works perfect. When the droid is connected using bluetooth, autoplay finds a random mp3 on your card and starts playing it automatically using the default music player. Even if it is not open. It also turns shuffle on. Beyond annoying. Please help. Thanks.
Autoplay on Bluetooth connect = fail!

I'm not sure if this is Liberty-specific or is standard on Droid X (I've not ran a standard ROM in so long that I wouldn't know). However, my problem is when I dock my phone in my car, I have it such that it automatically turns bluetooth on and pairs with my car's stereo. As soon as my phone pairs with my stereo, it attempts to start playing my music player. If I install a third-party app (like WinAmp), it'll start whatever my default is.How can I get this to either not autoplay any app or to consider Pandora as my default app to autoplay?This autoplay is dependent upon simply the Bluetooth pairing and has nothing to do with my Car Dock apps (I've tried 3 of them in case any would help me). I simply want to have my phone (running Liberty 1.5, no theme) to not autoplay anything when it pairs with my stereo.

Is there a way to have Rhapsody begin playing when it's opened (or a way to do it using Tasker)? I've set up Tasker to recognize when my phone (Droid RAZR Maxx) is connected to my car bluetooth and automatically open Rhapsody. I'd either like Rhapsody to then begin playing or have Tasker do it for me. Either would work. Thanks in advance for any help! I've been searching the Forum but didn't find anything...Thanks!Stu

HTC mp3 autoplay feature
Wednesday 14th of July 2010
Does anyone know how to disable the auto play feature in the HTC evo mp3 player. It auto plays as soon as Bluetooth connects or pairs with my car. It's freakin annoying and it drains battery power. Sent from my HTC EVO using Tapatalk

Bluetooth auto play when getting in my car. Help!
Friday 13th of December 2013
I have my N3 connected to my 2009 Ford Edge via bluetooth. It connects quickly every time. The phone has 911 assist almost immediately. The same can be said for media. Bluetooth connection to enable media playback always connects. I have two bluetooth media related issues that revolve around autostart of media player when I get in the car... 1. Default app to play media. No matter what I'm playing when I leave the car (it could be BeyondPod, Pandora, Play Music, etc.) the app that starts automatically playing when I get back into the car is ALWAYS BeyondPod, my podcast player. For some reason it has become the pseudo default media app when connected via bluetooth. If I was playing Pandora I know that when I get back in the car I'll have to go into my phone, stop BeyondPod and then to into Pandora and hit play. I would very much like it if there was a way, or a setting, that tells the autoplay feature to use the app that was playing when I left the car. I don't want a default player, just the player that was being used when I left the car. 2. When I get in the car sometimes it will st

How to turn Music Player off and on?
Wednesday 30th of April 2014
I am sure these are silly questions. Thanks in advance for the help. 1. How do I turn off Music app once it is on? I don't see it under settings on the phone or in the app? Once it is on, the only way I can stop it is via task manager? That cannot be right can it? 2. I have Bluetooth in my car. As soon as it sees my phone, it turns on the music app to play music. (Also, goes to lockscreen - see 3.) I do not want it do that? I thought it was the bluetooth autoplay feature in my car but I have turned that off and on multiple times to see if that was the problem and it keeps happening? 3. How do I keep music player off my lockscreen? Once I hit play, it goes to the lockscreen. I do want it to do this sometimes but I cannot find where to control it?
