    Errors and warnings fix

    Lot of the errors happens if you upgrade to flutter 3.0

    1. There could be errors about the IconButton

      Widget btnLoop() {
        return IconButton(
            icon:   ImageIcon(
              size: 15,
              color: Colors.black,
            ), onPressed: () {  },

    In the above code we added the onPressed event.

    2. Make the following change from

    this.widget.advancedPlayer!.setPlaybackRate(playbackRate: 0.5);



    playbackRate is not defined in setPlaybackRate() new version of the plugin and flutter upgrade. So we need to remove it.

    3.  Change setUrl() to the below code

        change setUrl to setSourceUrl

    4. Change onPlayerCompletion to onPlayerComplete

     this.widget.advancedPlayer!.onPlayerComplete.listen((event) {

    Show time on Slider

    If you get error during the slider part, make sure your code is like below

      Widget slider() {
        return Slider(
            activeColor: Colors.red,
            inactiveColor: Colors.grey,
            value: _position.inSeconds.toDouble(),
            min: 0.0,
            max: _duration.inSeconds.toDouble(),
            onChanged: (double value) {
              setState(() {
                value = value;
      void changeToSecond(int second){
        Duration newDuration = Duration(seconds: second);

    Make sure that, you are calling the slider() method inside build method().

      Widget build(BuildContext context) {
          children: [

    Code for app_colors.dart

    import 'dart:ui';
    final Color background = Color(0xFFfafafc);
    final Color sliverBackground = Color(0xFFfafafc);
    final Color menu1Color=Color(0xFFf9d263);
    final Color menu2Color= Color(0xFFf2603d);
    final Color menu3Color= Color(0xFF04abe6);
    final Color tabVarViewColor=Color(0xFFfdfdfd);
    final Color starColor=Color(0xFFfdc746);
    final Color subTitleText=Color(0xFFc5c4ca);
    final Color loveColor=Color(0xFF00ace6);
    final Color audioBluishBackground=Color(0xFfdee7fa);
    final Color audioBlueBackground= Color(0xFF04abe7);
    final Color audioGreyBackground=Color(0xFFf2f2f2);

    Keep playing the music player
