    Here's the lowdown

    * BlackBerry Q10 running
    * Device is encrypted
    * Amazon Music streams music fine but if I download music to device, and attempt to play it back, it skips and stutters badly
    * Tunein Radio Pro skips and stutters badly even when I increase the pre-buffer to a maximum of 30 seconds. I notice that you can't turn off the option to save playback to device, you can only decrease it to save a minimum of 5 minutes of saved playback - hence it is probably trying to save and read from the device

    Something tells me that the Android runtime doesn't like the fact that my device is encrypted, but I am sure not going to decrypt my device just to play music on it using Android apps.

    The funny thing is, in previous versions of TuneIn Pro the audio playback was just fine.

    Any ideas?

    And while playing a song, check your CPU panel in the Device Monitor...

    Does anybody know if it's possible to reset/restart the Android Runtime without having to reset/restart the whole phone?

    The lack of interest/response to this thread is a sad reflection of how few people use BlackBerry 10 ... and the even smaller number who use Android apps on it. I would laugh if it wasn't so sad.

    I have TuneIn pro but really don't use it much. I use the Bb10 TuneIn app and Nobex. I use Pandora and it works well on my Z30. I do use Amazon Prime music quite often and I do find that one to be slow and unresponsive at times.

    Car mode doesn't help for me.

    I've narrowed the cause of the issue down to the way the Runtime accesses protected storage on the phone. It's not related to the SD Card or encryption. For example I can stream music perfectly using Amazon Music with Prime, but as soon as I download any Prime music and try to play it back it skips and stutters like a MOFO. This doesn't apply to unprotected music on my SD Card that I can play back just fine.

    TuneIn also skips and stutters like a MOFO because it insists on saving playback on to protected storage on the device with no way to turn this off. Radio apps that only stream, and don't download any data to protected storage, run just fine.

    Conclusion, this is a problem with the way the Runtime handles protected storage (i.e. content that is protected by DRM and saved on the device).
