Can I change the media volume? and how? I used this so far:
The right method to use would be setStreamVolume on your
AudioManager. It could looks like this
AudioManager audioManager = (AudioManager)getSystemService(Context.AUDIO_SERVICE); audioManager.setStreamVolume(AudioManager.STREAM_MUSIC, [int value], [if desired a flag]);
An example use of the flag is to get the beep when setting the volume so the user can hear the outcome. The flag for that would be
You could use
AudioManager.FLAG_SHOW_UI if you don't want to play a sound but display a toast with the current value. The use has to get a feedback tho. Doesn't matter if it is audible or visual.
To get the maximal valid value for the given stream you just call
getStreamMaxVolume() on the
AudioManager and get an integer back which represents ... well the maximal valid value for the volume.
