Capacitor-plugin-playlist: no audio on Android

Q) I’ve got this plugin installed and building, but no sound when I try to load the hardcoded mp3 in the example below, any ideas?

  • Plugin:
  • AudioProvider is the example file from that repo.
  • My example player class:
import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { AudioProvider } from '../Services/AudioProvider';

  selector: 'app-player',
  templateUrl: '',
  styleUrls: [''],
export class PlayerPage implements OnInit {

  public isPlaying: boolean = false;
  public audioTrack: any;

    public _AudioProvider: AudioProvider
  ) {

  ngOnInit() {
    this.audioTrack = {
      isStream: true,
      assetUrl: "",
      artist: 'Whatever Artist',
      album: 'No Album',
      title: "Some title"

    this._AudioProvider.init().then(() => {

  play() {;
    this.isPlaying = this._AudioProvider.isPlaying;


Thank you!

No sound: Are there any errors in the console? Connect to device, check on both Chrome browser and the Android Studio logs. Debugging guide.

Android setup: registered plugin in Main Activity, etc?

Last advice, is to open issues on the plugin repo since the authors know it best. Looks like you’ve done that. :slight_smile:

Thanks @netkow - this is running on the device and there are no errors in the console.

What I do see is:

V/Capacitor/Plugin: To native (Capacitor plugin): callbackId: 55614574, pluginId: PlaylistPlugin, methodName: play
V/Capacitor: callback: 55614574, pluginId: PlaylistPlugin, methodName: play, methodData: {}
I/RmxAudioPlayer: play

Android setup is all good, yes.

Yes you’re correct re github issue opened, thank again.
