Android :: Hiding Media Files From Music Player

Apr 27, 2009

I'm torn between which group to post this too, but since it is for an application I am working on, I guess I'll stick it here. So here we go. I have an application which downloads data onto the sdcard to be used by the application. Some of these files are sound or music files and the music player in android seems to parse these directories and add these files to the list. I'd like to somehow block or hide these files from the music player. Is there is a way to do this? I was thinking it may be possible to name my folder with a period at the beginning, since linux hides such files. I'm just not sure if that is going to hide it from the music player or if there is another way to handle this.

Media :: Music Player Can't Find All Files / Need Doesn't Use Native Index Of Files?

Apr 4, 2010

I have a Samsung Galaxy I7500 using android 1.5. I extended my phone with a 16GB microSD. I copied a big music collection (around 800 files) into a folder on this SD. Now the problem is that the music player can't find all the files.

I know that there are several threads about android not finding music. The answers are usually that the library hasn't yet been updated or that the ID3 tags are not correct.
I have checked both.

Btw. I can play the files using ASTRO.

In my opinion it seems as if android can't build up a library with too many entries. If I rename the files or put them into different folders, songs disappear and reappear quite randomly.

Do you have any solutions? Is there a music player which doesn't use the native music players index of files?

Media :: Synching Music Using Windows Media Player

Jun 16, 2010

After hours of hit and miss using programs like Double Twist etc. I found that the easiest way to sync music to the iHTC Music player is to use Windows Media Player and buy Album Art Grabber to load the album art. Once you have done the initial sync with WMP you can go back and load individual albums simply by dragging them to the sync area. Connect your phone to the PC and unmount the SD card Open WMP and click the sync tab. Click the drive that represents your SD card (mine was H You will be prompted to sync everything for either this session or all sessions. (I always click this session only). Works great and all I will need in the future!

Media :: Media Player On Hero Not Recognizing All Music

Dec 22, 2009

I've got a ton of music on my SD card in my phone, approx. 6.5GB worth on an 8GB card. The problem is, the music players in Android (I've used the default, RockOn and MixZing, though I want to stay with MixZing) only recognize about 80% of the music, in their libraries. The thing is, the music is there! If I browse to the folder and launch the file it will play, but there's no artist/title data, even though all the files are properly tagged (mp3s), plus, it opens in a weird verion of the default music player that will stop playing if it loses focus.

This has been a issue ever since I got this phone. It's a brand new SD card (my previous one, in addition to this problem, had major corruption issues; I originally thought it was the card but I guess that's not the case). Also, I've gone through two different ROMs (one when I first got the phone, and a second that I upgraded to about a month ago), so I don't think that's the issue. It seems to affect random folders (albums) at different times, whenever the library is refreshed, but I can't refresh the library manually (that I've found) to see if it's just not scanning those files, or if it's a more underlying issue. I'm stumped

Android :: Playing (M3U Files) With Media Player

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to play a playlist I get using the MediaStore provider. However, when I try playing a playlist nothing happens. Can a MediaPlayer play a playlist (m3u file) and do I need to set the first track to play? This is my test code in the onCreate() method:

Uri uri = MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI;
if(uri == null) { Log.e("Uri = null");
} String[] projection = new String[] { MediaStore.Audio.Playlists._ID,
MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.NAME, MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.DATA };
Cursor c = managedQuery(uri, projection, null, null, null);
if(c == null) { Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(),
R.string.alarm_tone_picker_error, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
return; } if(!c.moveToFirst()) { c.close();
Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), R.string.alarm_tone_picker_no_music,
Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show(); return; } c.moveToFirst(); try {
MediaPlayer player = new MediaPlayer(); player.setDataSource(c.getString(2));
player.start(); } catch(Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }
I have turned on every volume stream.

Media :: Music Manager And Music Player App

Aug 9, 2010

I've been using the standard media player on my Nexus one since I've gotten it, only loaded music once using simple copy and paste method on the folder level. Problem is I've gotten new music (alot) and I can no longer fit it all on my nexus one.

Before someone mentions it, I've tried using DoubleTwist and I'm not a fan, I've had issues with slow syncing, duplicates, and as a music manager I can't determine the total size of the media I want to sync, can't choose more than all or selected playlists, no artist selections, I can't edit the file tags within the application, and some music isn't removed when I try to remove it from my library (not move to trash)... Overall I'm very unsatisfied.

Needless to say I'm looking for something else to use, something that allows me to rate my music both on the desktop and on my nexus one...and that those ratings actually sync on... this will allow me to determine what I Listen to and thus only transfer that over to my N1.

Media :: Android Music Player Won't Show Downloaded Podcasts

Apr 20, 2010

On my HTC Legend, when I download podcasts using Listen, BeyondPod, or Dpod, the downloaded .mp3 files are not visible on the android music player widget. Nor are they visible on btunes, even if I enable the audio books/podcasts features on btunes and hard-set the sdfolder path to where the .mp3 files are stored. On the music widget, I do see an empty "podcasts" playlist, but if I tell it to update, I get a "force close" error. Any ideas?

HTC Desire :: Don't Put Audio Files In Media Player

Jul 23, 2010

I'm still trying to get to grips with the folder/filing system of the Desire's SD card. I have yet to put any of my own MP3's onto the phone but have put on a few short audio clips which I created at work. These were on the phone mainly so I could transport them home but I also occasionally play them from the phone. However I don't want them cropping up amongst music in the music player app/widget, but it seems no matter where I put them on the SD card they appear. The only exception is if I put them in media => ringtones which isn't ideal. Are there any other places where i can put them where they won't be found by the media player?

Media :: Speed Improvements To Stock Music Player On Android 2.2 - Froyo?

Jun 8, 2010

Since everyone says that 2.2 is a lot faster than 2.1, does that include the music player also?

I like the stock music player (although i have the incredible, so it is the sense music player), i like all the features it has (delete songs, playlists, full lock screen support, etc.

The only thing i don't like its that its way slow when going to the list (either artist, all songs, genre). I have over 2500 songs so i know this is the reason, but im just hoping that once we get the upgrade the speed will be more acceptable.

Other than that does anyone know of a third party app that has lockscreen art, and all the basic functionality of the stock music player but performs faster when viewing the list? I've tried all I could find, mixzing, doubletwist, museek, cubed, astro media player, vanilla music player, meridian, btunes, and some other ones I can't remember now but they all have something missing from the stock media player.

Media :: Displaying Different Language In Music Player

Apr 17, 2010

I'm thinking of getting an Incredible when they come out but I was just wondering about displaying languages in the music player. I have a Nokia E71 now and it can't display Korean or Japanese in the music player, all the words come up as boxes and I've been reading how the same occurs in Android 1.5. Is this problem fixed yet on 2.1?

I know it might not be a big deal for some but it really is a dealbreaker for me and will probably push me towards the iphone if it doesn't support the languages.
P.S. While we're on the language subject. Does Android support texting in Chinese? And if so, is it with the IME where you draw out the characters? Rarely text in Chinese but will be nice to have anyway.
