Title: Mede8erIPRemote for Android
Post by: Skylinc on March 28, 2013, 08:39:26 pm
I'm starting to learn how to program for Android, and want to create an API Remote for Android. So... I want to know what is the lowest popular version of Android you guys are using so that I can try my best to make it compatible with that version.

I wouldn't look lower than V3, even if many still have V2.  If users can't upgrade it could be their hardware isn't up to V3/V4 performance, and that might be needed to  get it working as well as IOS.

I'll keep that in mind, but it's not like I'm creating a high-end game, so performance might not be too much of an issue. Besides, some of the nicer graphics could be disabled to allow older versions to reap the same benefit.

One of the things I know won't work in older versions (pre-HoneyComb) is swiping between screens, which is why my preference would be v3 and up. But I like challenges ;)

There you go  then....one version..two function libraries...and decide which to use based on the host.   You did say you like challenges. ;)

Out of interest what are you using for an IDE. I've toyed with the idea of looking at android but I'm still having fun playing with C#

Eclipse. Most tutorials seem to prefer Eclipse.

Not sure what API you are referring to... The MED500X2 does not support the new API that is supported in the MED1000X3D and MED600X3D models.

To keep it future proof and backwards compatible with some older tablets I would focus on Android API level 13 and higher.

I was also thinking about developing a Android remote app for a while now. I'm currently a intern at a company which also develops and maintains a Android app and I've made my own little app in the past to learn the basics. If you could use any help I would really like to help you into making some (maybe just small) features happen, as a project like this would most definitely boost my skills. :)

Based on current response I'm thinking of API Level 14. But I'll give it another week or so before I firmly decide.

I will keep this in mind. Thanks for the offer!!

Ive programming a lot of mc software. Witch includes several software packages. Started to read me into
Android some time ago. Dowloaded eclipse and soe. Tutorials. I think as of api 13 (currently te latest is api17)
Is an good option. However when you look at the used controls and graphics it doesnt has to be so
Complexe. But then again when soem features are available why dont use them.
As said before. An real chanlenge and respect. If  i can contribute in anyway let me know. Hope you decide soon hardly can wait. To use it (already). This is whu you want an mediaplayer as the med.

Did you already learn Android then as you said that was your first step?

As the X3 is the current developing platform for mede8er, net api is currently being developed on the X3 firmware. After it is avail on X3 net api might be ported to X2 when possible.

I know it's been about a third of a year since this thread was made, but I didn't want to make another one requesting the same thing.

I would love to have the knowledge to be able to make one myself, but sadly I cannot.

It is nice to see some interest, and it is definitely an android app I would love to have on my phone and/or nexus 7, if it's a paid app or not.

I have used this on and off for a while now:
http://www.mede8erforum.com/index.php/topic,4624.0.html

Though I have longed for an android app that is more, and when I first saw this:
http://www.mede8erforum.com/index.php/topic,10252.0.html

I went straight to purchase it so fast I didn't even realise it was for iphone/pad.

I have both a 400X2 (which this wouldn't work with obviously), but have recently (today) got a 600X3D.

I have tried a lot of media players, and the Mede8er is the one I always tend to keep, I just don't think as much of the others as I do this.

I hope something similar to the iphone/ipad is developed for android, it would be an instant purchase for me if mede8er or yourself manages to design one.
(Not sure if I'm allowed to say that, I'm simply showing my support of the app coming to light and of course my pride and joy of the mede8er)

Any update on this?

As soon as the Apple app was out, I was optimistic that Android will follow and bought the player. Turns out you should never buy a product based on anticipation (not mede8er fault). Should have just gone either with Dune or PCH.

Post by: est1980 on January 13, 2014, 09:02:06 pm
Gonna be honest im with mdp on this, expected some sort of android remote and feel like ive been led up the garden path for months now about one supposedly in the making

With the apple release there were constant updates and threads made about its progress and rough release dates, alot of ideas floating around

Ask about a android release and for months and months now theres been replies saying theres one in the making, 4-6 weeks away but it never comes and ive not seen one single bit of proof to show theres even a app in the making (unless you class a picture of a android device on facebook with a photohopped picture over the screen counts)

Enjoyed my mede8er, still do to an extent, but very tempted to jump ship and go for a different brand instead of waiting around for another x amount of months with nothing guerenteed

@mdp if you do a search for 'android' there is another thread with a lot of replies, not a lot worth reading though unfortunately
Title: Re: Mede8erIPRemote for Android
Post by: mdp on January 13, 2014, 11:06:51 pm
Yes, I have been to that thread. That app is a simple navigation app. We need app like the apple one with full blown jukebox. I need it because then i can use the mede8er for music without turning on projector. Beside, its easier for family members too.

Ever since this thread was up, asking about which version of android, I got my hopes up thinking the app is just around the corner. I guess its better to look elsewhere. :(

It exists for sure - you can believe me on my word.
I was in the opportunity to test several versions and it is working pretty well with my Samsung S4.

Currently the developer is working to optimize the graphical interface - which is always a pain on Android to let it scale properly on all the different screen resolutions there are.
On Apple IOS this is much easier.

Just a little patience - I expect we are pretty close to start with some closed beta round on it soon.

Dear Maasbommel!

You wrote this two months ago, but nothing happened ever since. Could you give us a little information about what is it the expected release date of this android app?

Thanks your answer in advance!

Its blatant bull [CENSORED] and i for one am getting very fed up of the lies

First time i asked about this was March last year and ive been fobbed off every since,

Mods on this forum are nothing but liars, they'll soon reply with ''beta will be released in 4-6 weeks'' again, but as yet theres not been one scrap of proof to prove anything is even being worked on, they posted a screenshot of a android phone with a picture photoshopped over the screen and that is the only proof they have

Mede8ers reputation is going down the [CENSORED]ter very quickly

At least have the decency to be honest with the people that buy you're products instead of lying to them you set of cunts

Said it before, anyone ever asks me for advice on a media player to buy and ill tell them 100% not to go with mede8er and ill tell anyone who wants to listen!

Someone's off his medication, it seems...? :D
If you're prioritizing being able to use an android phone as a remote, then go Tizzbird or any of the other sticks that supports android. It won't play your media files properly, nor will you have any support when the darn thing dies on you, but hey - as long as you can use your android phone as a remote...
Me for one is praising the stability that comes with my Mede8er's. Actually got my new 600X3D today and couldn't be happier with how it performs.
Peace

Been fobbed off for almost a year (27th of march), been told constantly its being worked on and will be released within weeks, its obviously lies, id rather just be told the truth, there is no app, not npw or not in the near future

And the abscense of an android app is the sole thing that would make you discourage anyone from getting a mede8er...?  ???
Let's just hope noone asks for your advice then ...  for their own sake ...

Post by: est1980 on March 13, 2014, 10:32:45 pm
No, id discourage people as the people that push this product are full of sh1te and dont know when to stop telling porkies, its a big deal when the people of mede8er lie and fob off members for almost a year

I guess you see that as acceptable, my argument here isnt about a android app, i gave up on that after the first few times the mods fobbed everybody off, i dont appreciate being lied to , especially over something so trivial, really dont see why they didnt tell the truth, although if they did that now after the whole they have dug id imagine there would be a lot of unhappy customers!

Sanji  don't fob anyone off. We keep  saying it's taking longer than  expected.   Neither do  they deal in vapourware..saying things exist that  don't.   So you havn't been lied to, yet you seem to  thinks it's ok to attack their reputation.

http://www.mede8erforum.com/index.php/topic,13884.0.html


I am  Sky TV user and do  I have an  android app from  that mega sized company?...No!  IPhone/Ipad users do  though.

I will be happy "if" I get one from Sky, but I'm not about to change subscription TV supplier on the basis of whether or not another service  has an android app.  Many of your so  called disapointed med users will  think the same way.
