Android V4.4.2 not producing sound

  • Problem Description

    The version 4.4.2 (KitKat) Android does not play sound. And we believe that all versions prior to 5.0 do not produce sound.

    Description of Capx

    Simply plays a sound when the button is pressed.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Step 1 Touch the button to play the sound
    • Step 2
    • Step 3 etc.

    Observed Result

    I am testing a sound .m4a and .ogg, compatible with smart phone. We export the project with "Cordova", "4.0+ (Ice Cream Sandwich) Crosswalk" and we exported to "Universal VS2013 Windows Phone 8.1".

    Android compilation was done in cocoon.io.

    This project is a test for Anadroid phones in version 4.4.2 and 5.1.1. And in Windows Phone 8.1.

    On phones Windows Phone 8.1 and Android 5.1.1, the sound is played perfectly fine.

    But in the Android 4.4.2 phone the sound is played.

    We believe that all versions prior to 5.0 of Android the sound does't works.

    Expected Result

    Play the sound on phone platforms

  • You need to build with Crosswalk support for sound to work on Android 4.x. It's applied automatically on PhoneGap Build and the latest Intel XDK with the new project format, but otherwise I think you need to manually enable it. Closing as I'm assuming you've just built without Crosswalk.

  • Try Construct 3

  • I built it with Crosswalk in Construct 2 export but it did not function. What you mean? I dont understand...

  • Have you tried any other build services? I suspect this is a problem with cocoon.io, probably that it just built without Crosswalk, which would cause this exact problem. Nobody else has reported any trouble, so I think you should either report this to cocoon.io or try a different build system.
