All I want to do is simply control background music in my app through a service so I am able to start it and stop it from any activity.

I have everything set up perfectly when I tell the service to Toast when it is started and destroyed but as soon as I put the media playin in there instead It starts fine and starts playing the music but as soon as a click a button to stop the service I get an error and a force close.

PLEASE someone help me see what I am doing wrong.. I am pretty new to android developing I'm guessing it's going to be something easy.

Here is my code:


import android.app.Service;
import android.content.Intent;
import
android.media.MediaPlayer;
import
android.os.IBinder;
import
android.widget.Toast;

public
class MyService extends Service {

private MediaPlayer player;

@Override

public IBinder onBind(Intent intent) {
returnnull;
}

@Override

publicvoid onCreate() {
super.onCreate();
Toast.makeText(this, "Service Started", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
MediaPlayer player = MediaPlayer.create(MyService.this, R.raw.oceanwavestest);
player.start();
player.setLooping(true);

}

@Override

publicvoid onDestroy() {
super.onDestroy();
player.stop();
Toast.makeText(this, "Service Stopped", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
}
}
