Bitch about the Music Player

Ok, it's hard to bitch about this thing, it has some really cool options, the landscape album select is awesome and hell, it can play FLAC FILES!!!

But there's just some things which I really do hope can be improved on in future firmwares:

1. Music Player will NOT read ANY FLAC Tags at all - this is incredibly annoying and should be implemented quickly - shouldn't be an issue.

2. Album Art not being downloaded automatically - this should be standard these days.

3. This wont matter for many of you, but I hate that the visualisation in only set to run at 5-10FPS or something - I know it would chew the battery, but I would just love to be able to have that thing running at 40-50FPS smoothly.

Anyone else got any grievances here? :angry:

"Not enough space in music database" means the app itself is unusable. I've removed it and replaced with Eliot Stocker's mucis mod, far better and more reliable.

1. Doesn't recognise my M3U files created by iSyncr

2. Doesn't work with scrobbling

3. Doesn't work with iSyncr playcount (which relies on a scrobble)

Have never used it since doesn't recognise M3U playlists.

Happily using Lithium Player (which can do a crossfade between tracks, hurrah!) + iSyncr (syncs with iTunes including playcount) + Last.fm (handles the scrobbling API calls and is also not a bad app)

lol... try pasting the album art's jpg file inside the folder of your album. Works perfectly.

Drawback: We have to paste jpg files for each and every album you have inside their respective folders on your phone. And also kinda stone-age!

It's pretty much the stock android music player, so I don't think the firmware updates (unless 2.2 or Samsung themselves introduces a better music player itself) will change too much soon. I've been using MixZing myself - does the album art thing though not sure about flac tags as I don't use use them myself - but i've been pretty happy with it.

I have just tested again, and I can DEFINITELY see cover art and read album title, artist, track number etc... so perhaps you should try again :angry:

I use Tag & Rename to do my tagging, I have found its by far the most powerful and fast software to do that.

Cheers,

Mark.

For me it is incredibly annoying, that it doesn't read m3u files. I still sync my SGS with iTunes (which I've grown to for 4 years), but I can't use my playlists.

I mean, m3u is a feature that mp3 players had since... dunno, forever?

Really unfortunate, as it is one of the more beautiful players.

I am now using mixzing, which does its job pretty well, I just don't like the UI design... has a bit of a Windows Media Player 6 feeling to it.

what are FLAC tags?

Interestingly enough, the music player won't recognize half the artists... what the heck is up with that?

ot: what the hell is scrobbling and why in gods name would I ever want to...scrobble something?

Agreed, I've never heard this term before.

It does, however, work as a brilliant innuendo. :(

Funny how different people are, I LOVE that I don't have to ever deal with itunes, EVER! I can't stand that software and love simply dragging and dropping an album to and from my device, to and from ANY computer WITHOUT itunes getting in the way and restricting you...but then I only listen to albums, not playlists.

Mark, thanks for the reply - I DO use Tag & Rename; easily the best tagging software I've ever used... I'll try upgrading to the latest version to see if that works...

iSyncr has since been updated so specifically support SGS and the Samsung Music Player does now see my playlists!! However I've haven't tested scrobble/playcount because I'm too happy with Lithium Player and its crossfade "party fader" mode on my playlists.
