How Do I Select Music Albums By Folder?

Discussion in 'Android Media' started by Son of Spam, Feb 10, 2010.

  1. 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.

    How can I do that?


  2. by not using the stock music app
  3. Thanks, mrqs. But that answer is too facile. I need solutions I can actually use.

  4. i thought it was pretty self-explanatory
    you can't do what you're asking with the stock music app, you're gonna have to use another one - search the market for an alternate music app that has this feature

    Award to most helpful posts of the day goes to mrqs...

    lol, anyway try mixzing lite, it allows you to select music folders.
  8. First of all, I should apologize to mrqs for my snarky response. I was just having a bad day. :eek:

    Yeah, I'm using MixZing myself. But it only allows you to choose the top-level folders (which, in my case is "Music"). Within that Music folder, I have subsequent sub-folders: "Classic Rock", "Blues" and "Garage Rock".

    Then even under those folders I have subsequent sub-folders of Various Artist Albums and Artist folders (yeah, pretty anal, I know).

    So, ultimately what I'd like to do is, let's say I just want to play my "Garage Rock" folder, I just want to select it and hit play.

    Whoever can help me with that gets a big wet kiss. ;):D:cool:

    ah i see, then check out either (or both to see which you prefer) music folder player and mortplayer. From memory i think they both let u select sub folders.
