    API

    ember-stereo operates on sounds by providing its helpers an identifier. Usually this is just a URL string, but an identifier could also be an object with a url property (and maybe a mimeType property), an already loaded stereo Sound object, an array of any of the previous items, or even a promise that resolves to any of the previous. Whatever the case, you're covered.

    Service API

    stereo plays one sound at a time. Multiple sounds can be loaded and ready to go, but only one sound plays at a time. The currently playing sound is set to currentSound on the service, and most methods and properties on the service simply proxy to that sound.

    Methods
    • play(urlsOrPromise, options)

    play calls load with the same arguments, and then on success plays the sound, returning it to you.

    play can take one or more URLs, or a promise returning one or more URLs.

    If the audio URLs are not known at the time of a play event, give play the promise to resolve, otherwise your mobile users might have to click the play button twice (due to some restrictions on autoplaying audio).

    export default class StereoComponent extends Component {
      @service stereo
      ...
      @action
      play(id) {
        let urlPromise = this.store.findRecord('story', id).then(story => story.getProperties('aacUrl', 'hlsUrl'))
    
        this.stereo.play(urlPromise).then(({sound}) => {
          // sound object
    
        }).catch(error => {
    
        })
      }
    }

    If you already know the URLs, just pass them in.

    export default class StereoComponent extends Component {
      @service stereo
      ...
      @action
      play(urls) {
        this.stereo.play(urls).then(({sound}) => {
          // sound object
    
        }).catch(error => {
    
        })
      }
    }
    • playTask(urlsOrPromise, options) the ember concurrency task that play calls.

    • pause() Pauses the current sound

    • togglePause() Toggles the play state of the current sound

    • fastForward(duration) Moves the playhead of the current sound forwards by duration (in ms)

    • rewind(duration) Moves the playhead of the current sound backwards by duration (in ms)

    • load(urlsOrPromise, options) Tries each stereo connection with each url and returns the ready sound from the first combination that works. The sound is cached internally so on subsequent load requests with the same url the already prepared sound will be returned. Calling play on the returned sound will start playback immediately.

    • loadTask(urlsOrPromise, options) the ember concurrency task that load calls.

    • findSound(identifier) Returns a sound once it loads. This works reactively, so you can do something like:

    export default class StereoComponent extends Component {
      @service stereo
      ...
    
      get sound() {
        return this.stereo.findSound(this.args.identifier)
      }
    }
    Gettable/Settable Properties
    • volume (integer, 0-100)

    System volume. Bind a range element to this property for a simple volume control

    //component.js
    import { inject as service } from "@ember/service";
    export default Component.extend({
      stereo: service(),
    })
    
    //template.hbs
    {{input type="range" value=stereo.volume}}
    • position (integer, in ms)

    Here's a silly way to make a position control, too.

    //component.js
    export default Component.extend({
      stereo: service(),
    })
    
    //template.hbs
    {{input type="range" value=stereo.position min=0 max=stereo.duration step=1000}}
    Read Only Properties
    • isLoading (boolean)

    • isPlaying (boolean)

    • isStream (boolean)

    • isFastForwardable (boolean)

    • isRewindable (boolean)

    • duration (integer, in ms)

    • percentLoaded (integer 0-100, when available)

    • currentSound the currently loaded sound

    • duration (integer, in ms)

    • percentLoaded (integer, not always available)

    Events

    The stereo service and the sound objects are extended with Ember.Evented. You can subscribe to the following events in your application.

    Triggered on both the sound and relayed through the stereo service
    • audio-played ({ sound }) - the sound started playing
    • audio-paused ({ sound }) - the sound was paused
    • audio-ended ({ sound }) - the sound finished playing
    • audio-load-error ({ sound }) - loading sound failed
    • audio-ready ({ sound }) - the sound is ready to play
    • audio-will-rewind ({sound, currentPosition, newPosition}) - fired before rewinding a sound
    • audio-will-fast-forward ({sound, currentPosition, newPosition}) - fired before fast-forwarding a sound
    • audio-position-will-change ({sound, currentPosition, newPosition}) - fired before audio position change
    • audio-position-changed ({sound})
    • audio-blocked ({ sound }) - the sound was prevented from being played by the browser due to auto play restrictions
    Stereo service events
    • current-sound-changed ({sound, previousSound}) - triggered when the current sound changes. On initial play, previousSound will be undefined.
    • current-sound-interrupted ({sound, previousSound}) - triggered when a sound has been playing and a new one takes its place by being played, pausing the first one
    • new-load-request ({loadPromise, urlsOrPromise, options}) - triggered whenever .load or .play is called.
    • pre-load ({loadPromise, urlsOrPromise, options}) - triggered whenever .load or .play is called.

    Details

    Included audio connections

    1. NativeAudio - Uses the native <audio> element for playing and streaming audio
    2. HLS - Uses HLS.js for playing HLS streams on the desktop.
    3. Howler - Uses howler to play audio

    stereo will take a list of urls and find the first connection/url combo that works. For desktop browsers, we'll try each url on each connection in the order the urls were specified.

    For mobile browsers, we'll first try all the URLs on the NativeAudio using a technique to (hopefully) get around any autoplaying restrictions that sometimes require mobile users to click a play button twice.

    Testing

    If you need to test audio handling that involves ember-stereo in your app, you're gonna need this helper. It sets up and cleans up a few stereo-related items, but most importantly it stubs out the native browser audio and video elements replacing it with a FakeMediaElement that behaves sanely in the test environment.

    You can control how the sound behaves by providing a url in one of these formats:

    URL Formats

    URLs that will successfully load:

    • good/10000/test-url.mp3: an mp3 that is 10 seconds long
    • good/stream/the-current.aac: an aac audio stream, duration = Infinity, will behave like a stream does

    URLs that will fail

    • bad/codec-error/the-current.aac: an aac sound that will fail with 'codec-error'
    • bad/some%20custom%20string/the-current.aac: an aac sound that will fail with error message 'some custom string'

    Here's an example test, testing an example player, making sure that fast forward and rewind buttons are disabled.

    import { setupStereoTest } from 'ember-stereo/test-support/stereo-setup';
    
    module('Integration | Component | player', function (hooks) {
      setupStereoTest(hooks);
    
      test('it does not display rewind and ff buttons when stream', async function (assert) {
        let stereo = this.owner.lookup('service:stereo');
        await stereo.play('/good/stream/test.mp3', {
          metadata: {
            show,
            track,
          },
        });
        await render(hbs`<Player/>`);
    
        assert.dom('[data-test-element="fastforward-button"]').isDisabled();
        assert.dom('[data-test-element="rewind-button"]').isDisabled();
        assert.dom('[data-test-element="play-pause-button"]').exists();
      });
    });
