    THANKS! This did the trick. I never would have thought notifications that pop up on a phone that is in Android Auto mode would even exist. But they do, and it causes BP to pause/start cycle constantly.

    Tonight, I discovered the settings that are discussed in this thread, namely 'Pause on Headset Disconnect' and 'Pause on Notification'
    When I turned off 'Pause on Headset Disconnect' my constant (and what I thought was random) pauses when using a Bluetooth headset stopped.

    For reference:
    Under Menu > Settings > Player Settings > Automatic Pause or Resume > Pause on Headset Disconnect was checked, set to Yes, and I unchecked it.

    In my case, I think an unrelated Bluetooth device, not my headset, was constantly polling (connecting and disconnecting).

    I wish I had found this thread first, instead of just now, after I discovered these settings myself. :-/

    This one hits me every day. I plug into AA, hit play.. and like clockwork, about 30-60 seconds later it pauses playback. I unpause it, and go on.
    Very frustrating...

    I asked some android devs for some ideas, and one of them noted that BP is not discriminating between disconnecting the *active* audio device, and disconnecting an unrelated audio device.
    So, apparently as part of the AA setup sequence, or Waze, or Google Maps, or whatever... it connects and disconnects some audio devices (which are not active), and BP is incorrectly pausing.

    It explains why the trick in #12 works to fix it... but then disconnecting the *active* device no longer works.

    Seems like there should be an easy fix for this one.

    This seems to be an Android setting that is putting the app to sleep when the device screen is not active. You will need to change your device settings to allow BP to stay awake.

    Settings>device care>battery>beyond pod> then turn off "put app to sleep"**

    Now, the above only seems to fix the issue if you are listening directly on the device but it doesn't seem to fix the issue when listening through bluetooth, so developers are collecting information to find a fix for that specific situation. If this relates to you, please send your logs for development to take a look at your data:

    To send log files, go to BP Settings>> Menu Overflow (3 dot icon in the top right corner) >> View Logs >> Choose the logs "Android" and "BeyondPod" (these steps will need to be taken for each log separately) >> Menu overflow >> Email.

    Please make sure to include a brief description of your issue with each log so development knows what report to match your logs to.

    I'm using 4.2.41 (not beta) on Samsung S10e and for me the pausing has gotten worse in the last few weeks in particular. It happens when playing through bluetooth headphones, speaker and Android Auto but not when playing through the phone's own speaker. I always download episodes, I have pause on notification setting turned off and have added BP to Apps that won't be put to sleep in power management settings.

    I see this all the time now. It appears to happen when going in and out of wifi. I don't get why Beyondpod has so many problems with simple things like this. I want Beyondpod to pause on headset disconnect, so that is not something I want to turn off. Actually, it doesn't always seem to pause when I turn off my headphones even though that is set. Why are there so many crazy things like this that happen?

    Another problem I have is that if I pause Beyondpod with my headphones for longer than a couple of minutes, I can't unpause it. WTF is up with that? Google Music doesn't do that. It makes no sense. I guess I'll start another thread about that. I really want to go with another podcast app, but I am lazy about learning how to set another one up to to work like I want it to. But there are so many bugs and annoying UI problems with Beyond pod that I have to deal with!

    And it also keeps locking up on me randomly. This started recently. I have to disable it. Then restart it, where it shows a white blank screen. Eventually Android says it isn't responding and asks if I want to wait or stop it. I stop it and then restart it and it works. What is going on?
