Also when you pair it make sure Multimedia Controls are added. After Froyo i re-paired my device and it gave me phone only controls. I unpaired, deleted and re-paired. Works just fine now.
Nope. Nothing works. Tried unpair/re-pair. Unpaired, deleted all media players before re-pairing. Even tried hard reset and swapping out to a new headset. It says it is connecting to phone and media. Just can't get it to work.

Everything was great when I first got the Evo. Then one by one, the media players just stopped working. doubletwist was the last one to quit maybe 5 weeks ago. Was hoping it would get better with 2.2, but no change at all. There's another thread here somewhere with others who have had the same problem.

Volume works fine. Pause mutes the audio but the track still continues to play silently. Track forward & back buttons do not work at all.

Check out Mortplayer. It bookmarks everything.

I tried it out a while back and didn't much care for it, but it might be good for just playing audiobooks or Stern, things that require bookmarks, so I might install it for that.

Anyone know how to set the default player that responds to headset controls? When I use mine, it fires up the stock player instead of controlling the app that's playing the current file.

Nope. But if you use WidgetLocker , you can stick the MM widget, or any other widget for that matter, on the lock screen. It's a $1.99 solution to that problem, so it may not be worth it to you, but I like having the custom unlock slider and widgets on the lock screen.

I only use MortPlayer for audio books. I use Meridian for music.

I'm not sure how to control which app responds to the headset at any given time, but if I set Meridian to use headset controls, it will take over the headset exclusively. I noticed with MixZing that if you paused it and then used another audio app, it ceded headset control to that app. Meridian always responds to the controls, so I can just plug in the headset and press the button to pick up where I left off regardless of whether I used an audio app in between. I essentially don't need a lockscreen widget for Meridian because I can just plug and play without touching the phone. Of course, you need a headset with controls to accomplish this -- a pair of old earbuds are too dumb to do anything but pipe music.

based off this thread i grabbed Music Mod and noticed something very annoying

when i 'shuffle all', it grabs EVERY music file on my phone. Even the 2-second gameloft sound effects. I can't find a way to limit it to just my Music folder. If I can get that fixed, I'm cool with it.

Also, if you move it to the SD card, you lose widgets and have to reinstall. Annoying. AppAware does this too.

From what I've read, Widgets don't work if you move any app to the SD card. But you don't have to reinstall. Just go into the app manager in settings and move it back to the phone and then reboot.

There are a lot of music players (Meridian included) that allow you to choose which folders to include and which ones to exclude. But this is the workaround if yours doesn't.

Sorry, I edited out the link to the fix because the implementation is way more complicated than necessary.

All you have to do is use Astro or EStrongs browser and create a subfolder named .nomedia in the folder you want excluded. There is no need to push a text file into the folder.

Grooveshark !!! Im super surprised no ones mentioned it. At least for my likings, you can bookmark and/or like songs, add them to a playlist and/or DOWNLOAD them for offline playing. You can search an artist, then go through either a list of songs by them (or pick a certain title in the search) or you can go through playlists. Pick a playlist from someone, and generally I find its all that artists best songs. Then you can tag away for download. Or play them on the spot.

My question is - do any other music players have this option? Granted the phone is never "offline", you can "play all" in your offline, shuffle, rewind, go forward backward through album covers to pick songs/albums. You can also download an entire album at a time for offline play! Thanks

this seems to work but only when i made the .nomedia folder in the main directory of gameloft...putting it in the 'sounds' subfolders didnt seem to take

That's good to know. I didn't realize it had to be in the main directory. Like I said, I never actually had to use it.

I'm still using the BT headphones because wearing wired headphones on the NYC subway is asking for trouble. I guess I'm getting used to pulling the phone out of my pocket to pause and switch tracks, but I really wish I could get it working properly!!!

I've been using the stock app until today when I downloaded Music Mod. Like it so far. Only problem is I now have a lot of "unknown artists" that I didn't have in the stock app. Shows the album art and all other info, just not the artist's name. I've sent an e-mail off to the dev on this. Hope it can be fixed.

I need help with Music Mod. It does not detect music from /emmc/MP3. This is a default music location that is detected by the Stock Music app. Seems Music Mod is only detecting music from my SD card MP3 folder. Whats the deal? Help me. Is there any location on internal storage that will be detected by Music Mod?

Overall, Music Mod rocks...but if I cannot fix above issue....its a deal breaker. I have limited space on my SD card....and lots of space on internal storage. I put music in internal storage.

How do you have more internal storage than SD card storage?

There's only 1GB of internal storage on the EVO and majority of that is taken up by pre-installed apps and Sprint stuff. From there, I think there was only something like 300+mb of space to save data.

Do you have a different phone than the EVO?

Oh, okay. That makes sense now...hahaha.

Maybe try creating a "music" folder on your internal storage and transferring the files in there, rather than having them in the default folder.

doubletwist with it's new update is the best music player! If you use itunes as your main music player than this is a must have since it now syncs quicker and more accurately from itunes.

Which version are you using? Does the stock app do this?

I'm not having this problem with the latest version of Music Mod. I'm on v1.8.

I am using 1.8 version as well, and yes the stock version does it too. I have a folder that has my books in it that are in .mp3 format. I don't see a setting in either app to choose just a Music folder.

This app does exactly what I would be telling you to do manually...easier this way. It use the ".nomedia" trick. It places this kinda dummy file in whatever folder you want media players not to see....

Maybe try creating a "music" folder on your internal storage and transferring the files in there, rather than having them in the default folder.
Astro and ES File Explorer would not let me create a folder on internal storage. I guess I need root to do that. BUT.....I could create folders when I plugged phone into my computer and did it from my computer.

Creating a "music" folder on internal storage did NOT work. Thanks for suggestion though.

Music Mod really needs a Custom folder select feature.....wow. Everyone please email/contact the developer and beg. I already did

Well i don't know what happened but now my audio books don't show in the songs title area. This is good, just what i wanted. Now what would make this a GREAT app, is when the phone goes to sleep and you awake it you have the player menu there to fast foward, pause, rewind, ect. like the stock player. Instead you have to swipe to unlock first, then if you have the home screen you have to again swipe down choose the music app then do whatever you want.

I think the stock player is the only one that can get its hooks into the lock screen. For any other player widget, you'll need something like Widget Locker to control it from the lock screen (I really should get a piece of this guy's profit!).

i've got mspot, got all my playlists and stuff synced from itunes and the quality is fine for me. I dont use it much and haven't tried using another player. I use it so little, pretty much only when my ipod battery is dead.

Stock. It works alright if you pair it with a file manager (AndroZip, Astro, and the like). I'd like for HTC to extend the file/folder management to the Music Player widget in future updates, because file management is inadequate on the stock music player.

Until I see a 5-star music player in the Market, I will continue to use the stock player...

Does it have to be the app that's currently in the active on the screen, or can you navigate to another app and still have the player appear on the lock screen?

With "3", it does not have to be active on the screen. The only draw back is sometimes it loads the normal lock screen, then flashes over to the "3" lockscreen. Try it out, it is a neat player.

Most of them have their own "lock screens" which are pretty ugly Sense player is the only one integrated into the Sense lock screen. bTunes has a "lock screen" player as well.

Music by mspot is my favorite. It has a good bit of features and the UI is way better than most of the ones in this thread. If you are looking for more obscure features then stick with something else, but if you want a solid music player that looks really nice then try it. It's free I think.
