Android :: Any Way To Add Songs To G1 Playlist From Windows Explorer?
Jan 10, 2010
I'm using the MixZing app for my music. It's otherwise not bad, but I find I have to manually (and individually!) enter songs to a Playlist from my G1. I'd rather do it via Windows Explorer with a right-click function, but I don't believe there is one. Is there any way I can add songs on my G1 to a playlist using Windows Explorer?
The playlist names can be found by a query on MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI and then look at the MediaStore.Audio.PlaylistsColumns.NAME column. There is a data column too, MediaStore.Audio.PlaylistsColumns._DATA, but it is returning null. The list of songs (MediaStore.Audio.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI/id) do not seem to show any playlist affiliation.
Does anyone know how to get playlist.com to play songs? I assume it's some sort of plugin I don't have but I dunno. There have been a few sites that Just had a large grey circle with an X in the middle.
Has anyone else made a playlist within the music player? Whenever I try to remove a song using "Remove from Playlist", it will remove it from the list until I reboot the phone. Which will then reappear in the list.
Never happened before but i flashed a new rom and of course the playlists that i had before were still there (no data wipe needed). i added some songs to the end of my gym playlist and alls fine. every day i need to re-add all the songs though. if i check around mid day, then some of the songs are disappearing and by the eve - the play list is back as it was when i flashed the rom. the songs themselves are still on my SD card though
I'm running a new galaxy s2 and am running into a major problem with the playlists I'm creating. After I create a new playlist and spend time putting songs in them they work for a while untill, usually overnight when I try and play them again the song stays at 0 seconds and will not play. I havent found any other forums addressing this problem and I'm going crazy trying to fix it especially since in my trouble shooting i cant seem to find one thing that makes it happen. Its not certain songs or certain playlist. The songs work fine untill for some reason they wont play anymore. My phone recongnizes them and the same song will play if I play it through the normal route (Atrists or albums) but when i play it from a playlist it wont play. Also i am running this music from an sd card and this is a new problem and it happens with all the music players i try. I was on winamp and then i moved to player pro because i thought the problem was with winamp but its happening with player pro to.
Nexus 7 2013 and Samsung Galaxy S4, both running ES File Explorer 126.96.36.199 Windows 7 x64 Pro (Hosting the files) ASUS RT-AC66U
The system works just fine after a fresh reboot of my PC. After a few hours, I get the "Login Fails" error (plain text or SMB). The only way to fix it is to reboot my PC. I believe its a Windows 7 setting that causing this. I searched all over the net for a fix and none of them worked. I tried:
Enabling Guest Account Changed Advanced Sharing Settings Set "Everyone" as read in the File Share Window Enabled Inbound/Outbound rules in the Advanced Windows Firewall Enabled sending unencrypted passwords to SMB via Local Security Policy
I can go into more detail of the fixes I tried if needed. What is an alternative to sharing files from a Windows 7 machine to Android devices? I feel like Ill never get ES File Explorer to work.
I can install and run HTC Sync on my laptop okay. I can even sync my Desire no problem. Trouble is, while I have HTC Sync on my laptop, Windows Explorer will not work. It shuts down and then tries unsuccessfully to restart. Doing a system restore to remove HTC Sync cures the problem. Anyone else having these problems? Any ideas how to fix it. I am running Windows 7 (32 bit).
Nexus 7 2012 when connected to Win 7 pc is not recognized in explorer so can't transfer files between the two except when N7 is in camera mode.
I've read countless posts saying to update usb drivers. I have the latest installed now from Google. I had so much trouble getting adb & fastboot to work that I'm leery about messing with my usb drivers.
I have a Desire and I'm trying to transfer MP3s and video across in Windows Explorer. However I can only seem to get around 100MB of files across then I get the error message:
Cannot read from the source file or disk
I'm using a 16Gb card that worked fine in my G1. Windows reports that there is over 14Gb free. I've tried formatting the card via the phone and using other software to transfer the files eg Doubletwist but I still get the same problems.
i have search the web/forum for a windows app that running on the PC you can see at least the apk icon, I have several apks on my PC but when I'm looking for an apk, is hard to remember the name or when trying a new apk is not enough just looking for the name, I may be more visual guy that if I see a nice icon I will try it jajajja.I just found this thread but look die..URL...
is there some application or dev that can easily do an apk viewer, just looking inside the APK folder on the /res/drawable/ the apk icon shows, but how to make it shows at the apk compressed file.
Coming from a Iphone to the X the music player is a little lacking. Often I will go into a certain artist and want to play all the songs by that artist, or thumb through all their songs to find a certain one. On the stock music player on the X this seems hard to do (maybe I'm missing something).
if I pull up the music by artist and select a certain artist then it shows me all their albums (The iphone has the option at this point to select all albums and see all the songs of that artist in alphabetical order). The X doesn't give a option to select all albums at this point. If I go to artists and long press on a certain artist I can select play and it will start playing all that artists songs, then I can hit pause and go into the list from that point to see all the songs but they seem to be in a random order making it hard to find a specific song.
I've tried a couple other players and haven't been able to find one that functions like the Iphone, makes it hard to quickly find one song.
i cant wait to get my Xperia upgraded to 2.1! i have one issue though. i only have access to a work PC with XP but no admin account (big corp, so no chance of getting it temporarily) or my housemates Mac. my girlfriend has a laptop but she wont be home until next weekend are there any non-windows/non-admin methods of upgrading?
I have had DC 2.08.1 installed for about 2 weeks with no issues. I decided to go ahead and partition the SD to utilized apps2SD as I was having memory issues. That process, while not smooth, went through okay and the SD card is working with the partition and apps2SD. However, ever since that was completed, my Windows 7 box no longer recognizes the phone either as a phone or as a drive. My Linux laptop recognizes the drive without issue.
Any suggestions on how I can reintroduce my phone to the Windows box, at least as a drive?
I was curious...does anyone know if there is a app out there that allows you to add a playlist of ringtones? Everytime you recieve a call it would be a random ring tone from the list. If you have specifically set a ring tone for a specific contact, then that one will play when they call you, but if no ring tone is set...then it would pick a random one from your playlist.
Is there a way to launch a playlist whith intent? I can retrieve the path of the m3u playlist with: Cursor cursor = context.getContentResolver().query (MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null); cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex (MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.DATA)); But, I can't launch this m3u file neither with Intent nor with MediaPlayer.
As of right now I am using the stock Music widget on the droid for my music. I made several playlists today but now would like to move some songs to another playlist and delete them from the original playlist. However there is no way to do this. The only option I found was to delete the song from the library all together! Any apps you all recommend that might be better to use for my music?
when i did, a playlist that has taken me the last two weeks to make disappeared. as luck would have it though it reappeared today for some reason. i would like to make a copy of it to save on my pc in case it decides to disappear again, but i can't seem to find the file. i made the playlist using the "Music" app that came with the phone. it's about 250 songs out of the 4.5 gigs i put on sd card.
I am looking for an Android Audio Player that is based on a "now playing" playlist, like Amarok, Winamp or WMP. In relation with that playlist, I want buttons to add a song as the next song, or to add the song to the end of the playlist. Like the Rockbox firmware does it. Is there any app out there that works like this? I don't need any advanced features like lyrics, covers, etc, I just want to listen to music. In case there's nothing around, I'll even consider developing my own. Who needs synched lyrics if there's not even an "add next" option?
I created a shortcut to a playlist (m3u) on my Home screen. When I clicked it, it asked if I wanted to use Meridian media player or the standard one. I prefer Meridian, so I selected that. It opened Meridian and showed the playlist file name, etc, but not the actual playlist. Is there any way to get this to work and actually play (or load) the playlist?
With my old phone, MyTouch, Android 1.6, I would export a playlist from iTunes as an .m3u file, and copy that playlist file over to /sdcard/music/playlists so that it would be on my phone. I manually copy all of the music from the playlists into /sdcard/music so that every song that is in said playlists is in the music directory. The music app would take awhile to update and read everything, but once I gave it some time to work, everything worked wonderfully. That was all I had to do.
With my new phone, Incredible, Android 2.2, when I do the same steps, it doesn't work. I open the music app, go to the playlist option, and it thinks and thinks and thinks. Then each playlist will appear, alphabetically, and then disappear, until there are no playlists at all.
I read some forums online and have tried multiple things, and apparently Android 2.2 reads the SD card looking for music, and when reading a playlist, if it can't find any of the songs in the list, it deletes the playlist. The playlist is not only deleted from the list in the music app, but is completely deleted from the SD card entirely.
Here is my concern... When this playlist is exported, it has the path from C: on my computer, because that is where the music is housed on the computer. Moving it to my phone has never been a problem previously because it ignored the C: path and just found the song, without worrying about the additional directory information. But the newer version of Android isn't doing the same thing, I think it's more picky?
Anywho, I need my playlists! I don't want to use MediaMonkey, and the m3u files have worked fine in the past - quick and easy, without having to use additional programs. I really, really, REALLY don't want to have to go through these playlist files and remove all of the path information because these are huge lists, but I guess I might have to. Do you have any other ideas on what I can do to make this work?
I've tried different directories for the playlists on the phone - but I don't think that's the problem because the phone can SEE the playlists, and then deletes them. I've tried creating a playlist on the phone so that I could see the format of it, but the playlist that I created can't be found on the phone. I don't know how the phone creates them, or where it houses them, as I tried to search for it and was unsuccessful.
