I am working on a simple game with a background music (an OGG file) which works great on Windows and worked well on android devices too until some day it just stopped playing the background music (other sounds still working ok)
I tried to look at the logcat but I can't point to the problem.. here's the log:

What I'm doing is loading a StreamPlayer instance and an instance of my music resource
Then playing it after my (autoload) script done loading
as shown here:

extends Node

... other stuff here ...

var music_player =
var music = ResourceLoader.load("res://assets/mfx/main_loop.ogg")

... other stuff here ...

func _ready():
    ... other stuff here ...

... other stuff here ...

func play_music():

Am I doing something wrong?

I also tried to create a singleton AutoLoad StreamPlayer based scene to play my bg music exactly as shown here:
Same results. on Windows runs perfect. Android WON'T play any music!
I also tried changing the audio channels with Auditor but it's matter not..
Changing to another audio file doesn't matter too.

Another edit:
It seems that every export cause loosing background music even when exporting to Windows
The only way it works is when I test it on Windows

The problem occurs when exporting. it didn't export "by dependency" like it was intended and I had to include the ogg\wav file in the export (resources page when exporting)
The whole time it was exported without those files so the background music file was missing therefore there's nothing to play.. I wish there were a feature warning you when there's a file necessary not being exported.

To be honest yes you're right...Yet i moved my music to the res// folder and everything started working perfectly the problem for me was the music were all placed in sub folder
(a folder in a folder)
