Looking for a file browser with MP3 playlist AND smb support
I've recently purchased an Archos 35 Home Connect (2.2 Froyo).
It works fine, except for one single thing: I can't get acceptable access to my MP3 collection hosted on a Windows share.
The Archos has a music player with built-in UPnP client and SMB support. Both works quite bad (very slow for UPnP, slow and with weird authentication issues for SMB).
I tried some alternative solutions, which didn't work:
- ES Explorer, Astro, etc: can browse my Windows share, but I can only open one MP3 at a time. No playlist support...
- CIFS Manager: no root, no way....
- Other UPnP-like soft: Remote Potato, TonkyMedia, etc. Same problem that I got with built-in UPnP client, way too slow. Actually, I guess that my MP3 collection is too large (80.000 files) to be managed with UPnP on very low-end devices such the Archos 35.
Is there any file browser app, with SMB support such as ES Explorer, AND playlist support, so I could open an entire MP3 folder instead of just one single song?
