I am trying to compile a list with music players which can play music by their order in their folder. Not by artist, album, genres and other. Just to play the music in a given folder one after another.
A quick search made me download tinyPlayer which does the job fine but the interface kind of lacks visual appeal. Any other apps for the purpose?
Generally music setup is good, much better than on the Blackberry. However, when I go into the album folder all the songs show up from that album as individual albums; on some of them when I click, it will show about 3 songs, others 1 etc. Also, showing 3 of the same song, not sure how that occurred but can probably fix that.
I'm very close to buying the desire from mobiles.co.uk (�110 handset) and Vodafone (600 mins, unlimited texts, 1gb internet, 24 months). I have a few questions which I would be incredibly grateful if you could help me with.
1.) - How do I put my iTunes music on to the Desire? 2.) - What is the PC Software like, and do they have or plan to have a iTunes version for Android any time soon? 3.) - Can you make folders on the Desire to put photos in? 4.) - Is 1GB enough, if I have 3G on but not using does this still eat up my allowance? 5.) - Can the Androids phones get viruses if you visit unsafe websites? 6.) - And with Vodafone does your monthly bill show the websites you have visited?
I've searched for a solution to this but everyone just says to buy another music player,which I really want to avoid having to do.I've installed a few games that put sound effects on the SD card.The music player adds these to the playlist so I'm getting random sounds effects mixed with my music.I cannot find a way to tell the music player to JUST USE THE MUSIC FOLDER.Is there something I am missing or an add-on for the stock player?
I have an evo and just found a problem/bug whatever you want to call it but I have like 5 games installed and they all have some kind of sound clips which are stored in a gameloft folder. In that folder there are over a thousand sound clips for the games that I have downloaded. I also have a music folder with about 150 songs in there. My problem is now when I start my music apps it pics up all the sounds from the game loft folder. Is there any way that I can have my music app only look for music in the Music folder.
Tried to find a relevant thread to post this at end of or perhaps that answers this and hopefully whoever knows where it is will just link to it and not be too unkind about my inability to find it.
I've never used any media player software to sort or tag my music ever. I have something like 10Gigs of fairly well encoded stuff and the collection grows over time, this time last year there was probably 8Gigs in the pile.
All my music is sorted by folders and in those folders they are usually named by track number, ie:
01. Astonomy Domine - Umma Gumma - Pink Floyd. etc. etc.
I can't seem to find the way to get this 'music' app in android to sort by folder first and the multitude of '01. next song, next album' in a row in my music list is starting to really get me down.
I don't want any nonsense to get album art for me or even to try to figure out what album this is (byte allowance on plans in AU sucks pretty hard, OK?) or what order these songs should be in.
Simple form of question: What is the name of an app that doesn't try to be clever about your music collection, just sorts and plays it by "(1) FileFolder->(2) FileName"?
Is this possible with this app that comes with Android and calls itself 'music' in the list?
Still learning my Hero, but having issues with my music which I can not seem to get fixed. The problem is when I open up the folder when it is connected to my laptop it will say that a certain album or song is in the music folder that I have set up. However, when I unplug the phone from my computer and open up the music, the songs can not be found?!? I've sorted by each individual song and even looked in the dreaded "unknown artist" and "unknown song" folders and can not find the songs anywhere, but they will show up in the media file once its connected to the computer. Its making me feel really stupid cause I know I have enough room in my phone still, so I must be doing something wrong for a few of my songs, but I have no idea what.
I created a MUSIC folder on my SD card for all my mp3s. However, the music player also picks up the voices from Sygic mobile maps which are on the root of the SD card. Can I get my Desire to ONLY look in the music folder I created and ignore everything else? Same thing happens with my photo folder.
So, I'm not a huge music buff but I decided to put some on my Evo to get the full effect and use of this phone. However, now that I've uploaded like 1000 songs I notice that there's alot of sound files from games I've downloaded and it is kinda irritating to finish a song and hear "your on the green!" (from that golf game) or "he's on your six" (from Hawx). I'm guessing this is a default folder that the games are saving sounds to but is there a way to fix this?
I've tried MortPlayer. Mortplayer really stutters and lags (a lot to the point I thought the program completely stopped) while browsing for folders; once inside the folder, the player is fine though. Also tried Meridian and the program took too long to load; it is also not responsive enough for my taste. Basically, I'm looking for an app that can play music by folder - that is as responsive and smooth as FolderPlay on Symbian S60, or the stock player on SE UIQ. Off topic: Really like the Galaxy S' gorgeous screen but also regret getting it at the same time. I guess I have too much expectation for it. I mean with its high end CPU and GPU, I expect it to be like super fluid but it takes longer to start up and to make a phone call than the 5800. Will hard resetting the phone and installing less apps help? I didn't really install that many apps, only about 9 pages filled.
I have a bunch of individual folders that I'd like to select, so I can add them to a playlist. Problem is, a lot of these folders contain Various Artist compilations, so I don't want to have to select each artist to program into a playlist.
If I could add the folders in question, that would be so much simpler.
I have a little over 20GB of music. I installed half on the players memory itself and the other half on an external micro sd card that has been inserted into the phone. Before transferring my music onto the phone and memory card, it was all under folders on my hard drived base MP3 player. I really like plug-and-play type MP3 players, non-Apple, and just simply had all my music in folders from A-Z and then the each different Band in a different sub-folder. I am not concerned with tags or album art. Since the phone comes with 16GB, I have to divide all my music half and half.
My questions are:
1. Is it possible to have all the music lumped into one like it was on my old MP3 player?
2. I cant seem to browse the music by folders. I want to have my music set up as 26 different folders from A-Z, then have the Bands seperated by folder WITHIN that folder
I tried downloading MortPlayer and Astro Player, but it doesnt seem to work right. Are there any settings on the phone to manage my music this way?
I'm looking for a music player that allows me to browse music folders and play directly from that view (with fwd, rev, etc). Basically, Rockbox (or similar) for Android. So far, all my app searches turned up empty.
I'm on 2.1 and looking for a good media player. I keep my music in folders (too many mixed albums and non-tagged music), and want a player that will allow me to play my music by folder. Every player seems to do the artist/genre/album/etc. thing, but not the folder thing.
I use voice recorder to record meetings and when I play music offline, I'm constantly pressing skip to get the stupid thing to play the music again (on shuffle).
lot of voice recordings in say "voice recorder folder" and all my music in the "music" folder but all the music players just pull .mp3 from the whole phone because I'll go from ACDC to, "today we will be discussing in today's meeting."
Making one big playlist of music.mp3 seems like a lousy work around which is all I can think of.
Is there a way to keep Google music on the phone from seeing non-music files, i.e. Doggcatcher podcasts? Tried adding a .nomedia file to the doggcatcher folder on the phone but that doesn't seem to work? I just dont want google music to dispaly the podcats files, or when you "shuffle" music, you get podcasts interjected.
I've been scowering the depths of Android music players trying to find an app that will simply let me browse SMB shares, sort according to ID3 track number tags, and play/queue music files.
The only app I could find that could come close is Xenoamp Beta, but it's buggy and often crashes when I point it at SMB shares with thousands of songs.
Otherwise I've come up with nothing.
Popular Music Players like Power Amp and Rocket Player etc, won't allow me to add SMB folders to their libraries. I've heard of solutions to mount smb shares into the "sd card", but such actions require root, which I don't want to do.
Popular Media Players like BSPlayer can browse SMB shares perfectly, but it won't parse ID3 tags and allow me to play according to track number.
Excellent File Managers like ESmanager will browse SMB shares with ease, but also won't recognize track number tags.
I bought my Galaxy S to replace my Rockboxed Cowon X5L. It has 30GB of storage, my Galaxy S has 48GB of storage. It's going to hold around 250 albums. I don't have single tracks, I just have albums, and typically I'll play an entire album rather than a single track. I've tried several music playing apps on Android and they're all awful. Not a single one of them is even halfway competent. I want to be able to go into a music player, and browse through folders and select music to play that way. I want to be able to go into a folder and start playing a track and for the music player to continue playing all the tracks in that folder and then stop. I want next/previous track to go to the next/previous track in the folder. The default music player is rotten, and does not work in this way at all. Any other music player I've seen seems to be built on top of the music player or just a reskin of it. They're all shite too. Has anyone created a music playing app that is fit for purpose? Has anyone seen one?
My Droid is randomly playing one of the songs in my music folder (always the same song). I have 2.0.1 loaded. Phone is from Verizon. In only plays thru the song once but I cannot figure out where it is coming from??
Did you ever have music files without tags ? (for example ripped from your CDs)Did you ever add some music in a "new music" folder in your memory card, without knowing exactly all the artist / albums?Do you know the "unknown artist" who sings the "Track 01", even if your file name is correct?
I have no idea what to do. To add music to my moment i usually take out the SD card put it in the adapter and and drag music into the music folder from my laptop once the SD card in in plugged in. The last time i did this, i put the SD card back into my phone after just adding music to it and my music library was empty. i plugged the SD card back into the computer and the music folder is missing. i tryed to add all the songs back into the phone but the computer tells me the SD card is too full. Ive checked the entire SD card to make sure i didn't just accidentally drag and drop the music folder somewhere else but theres been no luck. any suggestions?
I am transferring mp3/mp4 files to Music Folder on my android phone. but I always get this message "Your file will be copied, but you might not be able to play or view it on your device". I copied it but Google Play Music/ Winamp cant detect any files I copied. It only show files I downloaded from the net. My android version is 4.2.1.
Before i selected erase phone storage, i had the music folder on my pc when the s4 was plugged in, but after it disappeared along with everything else. Now all i have is 3 folders named .androidsecure, Lost Dir and whatsapp. What can i do to get my folders back?
