Music skips, hiccups, stutters

Audio skipping is a complex issue, it can be generated by many factors:

- SD card issues (try to play same file in stock player, if it happens there as well - that's it). Can happen also if many songs/images/movies recently uploaded to the phone (stock system scanner one some devices is slow and takes a lot of SD card bandwidth)

- Bluetooth issues. This usually affects any player on the device. Try to Unpair, then Pair BT device again

- HTC Sense 4.0+Beats ROMs produces skips. Try to disable beats for Stellio

- additional 3rd party audio effects. Try to temporarily disable additional audio effects and check if it helps

- some cpu hungry apps (free app like OSMonitor can show total and per process cpu consumption and find offending app/service)

- some broken formats (if skipping happens for the same songs, always, and doesn't happen for others)

You can increase audio buffer in order to prevent stuttering via Settings => Audio => Audio buffer size

CPU/battery consumption

When Stellio plays some file, total cpu usage will be the same or lower comparing to total cpu utilization, when standard Android player plays the same file.
All the work done by Stellio happens in the single process, while standard player and players play sound in system codec process (MediaServer), not in player process itself.

You can enable power-saving mode via Settings => Power-saving
