Android: Please improve current song buffering

user-removed

Hello,

I’m using Spotity (lastest version) for android 4.1 and set music as "extreme quality". It works well, even on 3G+.
However, the single song buffer works systematically bad on Wifi (sometimes on 3G too).
I’ve tested my wifi bandiwth and it’s quite stable (wifi /n speed). When playing any song, it stops all the time for just a second to buffer, then starts again, then after few seconds it stops…
I have to play the song, click pause for a few seconds, and then play again to avoid that = manual buffering…
A better crafted buffering system would be much appreciated; I will be keen to wait 10 seconds but the song to play with no interruptions, even in extreme quality.

 

Please take care I’m not thinking about the next song to be preloaded, but of the current one.

 

Thanks,

I've only experienced this when I've been in a weak reception area. If you get this a lot, there might be something else going on. Does reducing streaming quality improve things? Does it happen when you are listening offline?

 

There's an idea about buffering here - not exactly what you are asking for but close.

Hello,

I realize it comes from my smartphone. When bluetooth is streaming music, wifi speed drop drammatically because of interferences I suppose ;(
