BT Remote / Volume up not working

Postby andreas » Sat Oct 07, 2023 5:09 pm

Hi,
first of all, thank you very much for the app!
I want to use wifibooth on the next weekend at an wedding with an Sony a6000 connected through Wifi.

Therefore I bought an BT remote which triggers volume up. But unfortunately it looks like "volume up" is not always triggering a photo. If I start the app only the first trigger does work. It makes no difference for the BT remote or the HW volume up button.

I am using version 4.13.0

What can I do?
Thanks!

Hi unfortunately in recent versions of iOS Apple disabled this feature so no apps can use it anymore

Oh maan, this can't be true :(
I guess there is no workaround or something?

None that I have found. Its always been against the Apple HIG - they really dont like it when you make a physical button do something other than exactly only the thing they want it to. And they locked it down in an ios update. Super annoying

Good news. I have released an update that fixes the BT Remote / volume up. You must be running iOS 17.2 or newer. Apple has released a new API that allows you to use the volume up like this, but they only released it in iOS 17.2.

Hi Tim,
First off all. Thank you for the great App.
I use an iPhone X to make the Photos. Connection ist stable and the Photos are quite good.
I also use a bluetooth Button to aktivate the photo.
But this method only works with the iPad-Cam.
The connected iPhone don't do anything.

Can you fix the Problem?
Thx from Germany

Hi Andreas
That's because I did not get a chance to update Sololink app yet. If I am updating that app again I will try to remember to add support for this too

Hi Tim,
Thx for answering. So i have to wait.
DSLR with bluetooth is possible?
And will USB-Webcams be useable in the future?

Thank you for helping me.
