Play / Pause / Skip Track Bluetooth Sony WF-1000XM4


I’ve purchased “Audirvana Origin” a week back and started exploring it. It’s UI is good and also feature rich. However it also has it’s own issues which are below.

1. With my " Sony WF-1000XM4 " touch controls ( When i touch the earphones ) like " Play / Pause / Skip Track " are not working. Not sure Why? it is a basic expectation. It is not pausing when i use them, instead some Youtube Video from my browser is played / paused while Audirvana doesn’t respond to them.

2. When i click on “Album Art” from Left Lower Bottom Corner " Audio Scan " window is opening up. But INDIA has too many languages and we hear songs from at least 4 to 5 languages and Albums prior to 1980’s mostly will not be having " Album Art ", in such case how to launch the " Audio Scan " screen on track without Album Art?

3. I am using " Mac OS Sonoma 14.2 " and often times it is hanging and kept giving a message about being online and offline, if i get the error next time, i will attach the screenshot here.

Please suggest. BTW, I am using " Audirvana Origin 2.5.7 "

Can you send us a copy of the “Debug Info” when you have this behavior? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>My account

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message

You need to click on this icon on the player:

And then click on the switch button at the top left of the window:

Hi @Antoine

Please find the attached Debug Report.

When I manually clicked “Play” Button on a track from “Audirvana” it is playing it and after a while, when i tap my Sony right earphone to “Play / Pause” the track, it is opening " Apple Music " app, instead of effecting the track that is being played from “Audirvana”.

That is very strange & frustrating.

Hi @Kenemi, I think it’s something linked to how MacOS works as on my end I have the same behavior whatever the device I use with Bluetooth. I will ask Damien for confirmation if we can do something about it or not.

If I’m not mistaken, there is a setting ‘mediakeys’, this must be enabled. When Audirvana is active, media keys control Audirvana. This has been a ‘challenge’ for a long time because it does not work well with all hardware. While all kinds of other software make this work. I created a script for my Hegel media keys that captures the commands and sends them to Audirvana. Then it does work.
