    As the topic says my music player will randomly start playing when using ss5.0. Is there a way to fix this? Has it happened to any one else?

    So it's just sitting on the desk and starts playing? I can understand if it does say if it's in your pocket - just toggle media controls off in tools if that is the case. However - if it's just sitting there and starts, that is different ...

    Yeah, I had the same problem.
    I swear I wasn't hitting the camera button, but my phone kept starting playing music (of course the most awkward type possible for the situation) in meetings, or other times when quiet is the norm.

    Since I turned off the media controls, it hasn't happened again.
    Though I wish I could still use the volume controls..

    All I can say is - in the code - the ONLY thing in my media controls that sends the play/pause intent is if it receives a camera button press - nothing else can trigger it.

    That being said - I will make a change so that the volume keys continue to work, even if media controls is turned off.

    Thanks! That would be great!

    (I am sure I must have been bumping the camera button when it happened, but certainly wasn't trying to)


    Was thinking I'd have to modify my belt clip to cover the camera button better.

    I have recently started having the same problem on my nonrooted stock droid x. I'll have my phone charging in the night sitting on the night stand when I wake up (left my earphones in the phone so I didn't hear it) music player is playing away. It will also start when doing other things like playing games.

    This is probably a related issue, but I've noticed a problem with pandora skipping or stuttering lately. The two issues started happening about the same time and I think the pandora program might be fighting for dominance over music player, which is causing the stuttering. The little "P" icon at the top of the screen is blinking really fast too. If I let it go, eventually pandora wins and continues playing properly.

    I have gone into manage applications and forced closed music player, but it will come back on after awhile. Some applications don't seem to want to fight with it and instead I'll get two audio feeds at the same time. My Dish network program is one of the pacifists. Another is "TuneInRadio."

    The only thing I can see that has changed recently that coincides with the problem was an update to pandora. Other than that, everything is the same as when everyone was getting along.

    I've been having the same issue since I upgraded to 5.0 - music intermittently starts when I go to unlock my phone. This happens regardless of whether my music control settings are on or off. I've just been dealing with it, but going to see if it's resolved for me in 5.01.

    So i figured out why its happening, at least for me. I have the media controls off but it still plays music when I press the screen on button and the camera at the same time which I must be doing by accident. Its pretty annoying, any one else have the same problem wanna try the screen on and camera button thing?

    Yea, its kinda funny walking into a meeting with the Stern Show playing in your pocketdancedroid


    Since we’re talking about music controls here, [ btw I think the music controls are the best mod for me hands down!] with the new circle lock screen, when you’re playing a mp3, the circle covers the album art. Is there a way to have the circle locker a little transparent when album art is showing?

    Ding ding ding! You got it totally right.

    I was trying to figure out how this was happening to me as well, but I was able to reproduce it by doing exactly that, holding the camera button and pressing the screen on button. It has to be a full camera press too, not just the half-press.

    And it's not the stock music player at fault, I delete it and use Doubletwist and it still happens.

    I knew there was some combination of buttons that was doing it. I usually pull out my phone with left hand using my index finger to hit the power button. My pinky must be holding down the camera button as I go. Even if the phone is on silent or vibrate - the music will play. I've gotten into the habit of turning the media volume all the way down when I'm done using an app with it.

    I can confirm it has nothing to do with the stock music app. I'm running PowerAmp and have never used (deleted) the stock app.

    I'm just waiting for the update to 5.01 that Chevy says will probably be out today, then I'm going to do a complete wipe and install without restore to see if this gets resolved.

    This does not happen to me in 5.1 - so the problem should be resolved. I re-did my controls code ...
