    Default Is there a way to prevent music from autostarting when connected to bluetooth?

    Every time I start my car, my Note 2 automatically connects to my car's bluetooth system and the Music Player apps automatically starts playing music. Is there any way to prevent it from playing music automatically?

    I know I can always go into my phone's Bluetooth Settings and uncheck "Media audio", but I prefer to keep this checked because I still would like to stream audio from other apps, like TuneIn Radio, Pandora, SlingPlayer, or the Navigation app. I usually listen to ESPN Sports Center or the local news through SlingPlayer, but I always have to stop the Music Player app first.

    I do have Tasker, but I can't seem to find a way to prevent Music Player from automatically playing.

    Any ideas?

    Do you have Motospeak installed on your phone?
    I voided my warranty.

    Nope, no Moto Speak.

    Try this : in Tasker set up a profile called "car connected" or something. Trigger it with State;net;bluetooth connected and put in the name of your car connection. Then make it run a task clicking media;music stop. That might work. I use my car connected profile to turn on Waze and Beyondpod when it connects.

    Yeah, that was first thing I tried and that didn't work. I also created a task to kill app, and that didn't work either.

    I have the same annoying issue. If I connect my Note 2 to my Camry's USB connector (simply to charge it), the damn thing always starts up music, interrupting Pandora (playing thru Entune). Drives me nuts. Only solution I've found for the car is never use the USB connector to charge.

    I found a setup in Tasker that finally resolved this annoying autostart problem.

    I created a task called "Stop Music" which does these four actions when it detects a Bluetooth connection with my car:

    1) Action 1 mutes the media volume. (Audio > Media Volume > Level 0)
    2) Action 2 is an 8 second wait time before doing Action 3 (Task > Wait > 8 seconds)
    3) Action 3 stops/closes the Music Player app. (Media > Media Control > Stop)
    4) Action 4 increases the media volume to max (Audio > Media Volume > Level 15)

    Couple of Notes:
    * I had to put in a wait time because without it, it would try to stop the Music Player app before it even loaded. So it would misfire the stop action and the Music Player would start playing.
    * I had to mute the media volume at the beginning because if I didn't do that, sometimes I'll hear the first second of the music before it shuts down, which is pretty annoying.

    I'm sure there's a simpler way to do this, but so far this setup is working great for me. Now I no longer have to worry about my Tupac music blasting in the car when I go out to lunch with my boss or the CEO of the company.

    I believe Power Amp has a setting that prevents this also.

    I'm having the same problem as the OP, and used the PowerAmp setting to turn off the auto-play on BT connect. So the next time I connected, the stock music player started up. It has no equivalent setting.

    Both my wife and I thought there's a system-wide setting to turn off this behavior, but we can't find it. Anyone else know where it is?

    Does using the Tasker process work for an S4?

    This is really strange I have never had this issue with my note 2 and I use it with bluetooth media streaming every day!

    Try Media Button Router on Google Play.
    This is best solution I have seen so far.

    That sorted it.... Any idea how to stop it saying "Play with what?" .

    Thanks, Ian.

    In the settings for Media Button Router check disable text to speech. I also unchecked all the programs and set timeout to "to fast". Works like a charm. Only problem is when a program with media gets updated by Google Play it automatically checks its box again so you will need to manually uncheck it after and update.

    Did you guys check inside your music program to see if any tracks were set in queue?
    I've been having the same issues with my HTC One, and since I have more than one song on there, I found it odd that it was always the same song it was playing.
    So I checked it, and sure enough.. It was on queue, but not anymore.. Problem Solved..

    I registered just to thank you for the awesome, app-less fix. I opened my music player and deleted the music that was queued. Now there's nothing to play once it connects!

    Cheers!
