audio_picker

A Flutter plugin for Android and iOS to pick local Audio files. This supports choosing Audio files from the Music App in iOS, and from the File Explorer in Android.

Introduction

This plugin opens a picker to get the absolute path of Audio files from your phone. If you ever wanted to play songs in your app, or upload audio files to your server, this plugin helps you get the absolute path of the audio file that you select.

Android

Add the following line in your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>

iOS

Add the following line in your Info.plist

<key>NSAppleMusicUsageDescription</key>
<string>Explain why your app uses music</string>

In the case of iOS, it exports the audio file that you choose from the Music App.

Usage

var path = await AudioPicker.pickAudio();

That's it ! You now have the absolute path of the audio file that you selected.

Note : In the case of iOS, since we are retrieving the file from the Music App, the export operation may take a few seconds to complete. Hence it's advisable to show a loading indicator to the user while the await call executes. Also note that DRM protected files won't return a path, and instead will return null as the path.

Upcoming features -

  • Retrieve metadata of the audio file (Name, Duration, etc)
  • Multiselect audio files
  • Filter based on file extension

Pull Requests and feature requests are welcome !
