Play button on the lockscreen does not seem to work. It pauses just fine but after that I have to go back to the app to get it play again. I'm on Intex Aqua Fish. Otherwise a very nice app.

great app! verry useful. would it be possible to bump up the volume level to 200 like vlc on pc has? linux distributions often have trouble with low volume where you need to go well over 100 for the sound to be ok
