MediaIntentReceiver

public class MediaIntentReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver

A BroadcastReceiver for receiving media button actions from the status bar notification, the lock screen, and the cast dialog.

MediaIntentReceiver can be subclassed to handle custom actions by overriding onReceiveOtherAction(Context, String, Intent), or override the default behavior when handling pre-defined actions. In that case, set the name of the subclass when building CastMediaOptions by calling setMediaIntentReceiverClassName(String), and declare the subclass in your manifest.

 // MyMediaIntentReceiver.java
 public class MyMediaIntentReceiver extends MediaIntentReceiver {
     @Override
     protected void onReceiveOtherAction(Context context, String action, Intent) {
         // Handle custom actions of the media notification.
         ...
     }
 }
 
 // MyOptionsProvider.java
 public class MyOptionsProvider extends OptionsProvider {
     @Override
     public CastOptions getCastOptions(Context context) {
          ...
          CastMediaOptions mediaOptions = new CastMediaOptions.Builder()
                  .setMediaIntentReceiverClassName(MyMediaIntentReceiver.class.getName())
                  // Set other media options.
                  ...
                  .build();
          ...
     }
 }

Public Methods

public void onReceive (Context context, Intent intent)

Protected Methods

protected void onReceiveActionForward (Session currentSession, long forwardStepMs)

Called when ACTION_FORWARD is received. The default implementation forwards the current playing item by forwardStepMs if currentSession is a CastSession. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.
forwardStepMs Time to forward in milliseconds.

protected void onReceiveActionMediaButton (Session currentSession, Intent intent)

Called when ACTION_MEDIA_BUTTON is received. The default implementation toggles playback state if currentSession is a CastSession. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.
intent The Intent of this action.

protected void onReceiveActionRewind (Session currentSession, long rewindStepMs)

Called when ACTION_REWIND is received. The default implementation rewinds the current playing item by rewindStepMs if currentSession is a CastSession. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.
rewindStepMs Time to forward in milliseconds.

protected void onReceiveActionSkipNext (Session currentSession)

Called when ACTION_SKIP_NEXT is received. The default implementation plays the next item in the queue if currentSession is a CastSession and there is a next item. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.

protected void onReceiveActionSkipPrev (Session currentSession)

Called when ACTION_SKIP_PREV is received. The default implementation plays the previous item in the queue if currentSession is a CastSession and there is a previous item. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.

protected void onReceiveActionTogglePlayback (Session currentSession)

Called when ACTION_TOGGLE_PLAYBACK is received. The default implementation toggles playback state if currentSession is a CastSession. Subclasses can override this method to change the behavior or handle other type of Session. Subclasses should call through to super to let the SDK handle the action if currentSession is a CastSession

Parameters
currentSession The current Session.

protected void onReceiveOtherAction (String action, Intent intent)

This method was deprecated.
Overrides onReceiveOtherAction(Context, String, Intent) instead.

protected void onReceiveOtherAction (Context context, String action, Intent intent)

Called when other type of actions are received. The default implementation does nothing.

Parameters
context The Context in which the receiver is running.
