    What's up dinc heads??!! (That's right, I coined that and take note!)

    So I have a problem. Ever since I have gotten the update to 2.2 this morning, the music player has sucked. A lot of my music says unknown artists and when listening to music, it randomly pauses for like a milisecond or should I say skips. It's really annoying.

    So I ask for any possible solutions or apps that are great media players.

    Cube ( the symbol is a superscripted 3 )

    It is an AWESOME media player. One downfall is that it pulls from everywhere so if you have ringtones outside of the ringtone folder, itll bring those in to. But in all honesty, you should keep those in the ringtone folder anyway.

    It has an amazing interface and TONS of plugins including a "Concert Search" for the artists you have in the player

    that name sounds really familiar and i'm pretty sure ive tried it. if i'm remembering correctly it is a very simple player. cube does everything mixzing does plus more cool stuff. its been the best one i've found and the smoothest.

    i've tried tunewiki and meridian and didnt like them either.

    I've noticed the same problem. I was fine with the stock music player before froyo. Is there not a fix for this?

    Do any of the alternate music players read music off the internal memory? I've got all my music on /emmc (gotta use it for something) and haven't found a player that will find them except for the stock player.

    Mixzing does, it had a descent widget, the free version is kind of annoying with its ads. plus it puts half of my artists in an unknown artist folder, so yea.!!

    Ever since the update, some of my music has no artists or unknown artist. I kinda figured out why. It's because the tracks that aren't mp3 have the problem. Anyone else notice this??

    I also confirm I have had many issues with my music. Playing music from the sd card results in hissing, skipping, and many other annoyances. Also streaming from pandora and last.fm , sometimes the song will just skip to another song, very weird. Is this a software problem?

    Same problem with the stock music player here.....skips, speeds up, skips....useless. I also am having a problem with the Sirius/XM app this morning (I updated to Froyo on Tuesday, it worked fine before that). The Sirius app keeps repeating the same thing over and over (about 1 minute of song, then repeats, stuck in loop). Weird.

    Hadn't noticed that, but that's interesting. I wonder if there is a way to fix it.

    I was having the same problem, replaying the same 25 ot 30 seconds over and over.

    I uninstalled the app and reinstalled and it seems to be working properly now...

    Why do I think many apps will have to be uninstalled and reinstalled to function properly. Should have done the clean wipe as suggested....

    edit- never mind, Sirius/XM app still does not work properly after uninstall/reinstall. Sirius/XM website says app update that works with 2.2 will be coming soon. shoot me. No ESPN radio at work as football season kicks off.

    I'm having the same issue with three different media players. All will play the song and skip and hiss in the middle. I've had the issue with Mixzing, bTunes and the stock player. My phone was basically broken by Froyo though so I chalked it up to that originally.

    Big problems with the stock music player for me. I use it with sporty pal when running, and it was unlistenable after running for about 20 minutes. Used to work great pre-froyo.

    Haven't tried any other music players.

    So glad you posted this because it was driving me crazy. Did the manual update with the zip last night and this morning I couldn't listen to my Hits 1. I uninstalled and reinstalled and, like you said, didn't help. Hope they do the update soon.

    The only other music players I use are MSpot and Pandora. MSpot has been fine since the update but I haven't opened Pandora yet.

    I have this happening only with audiobooks using the stock Music player and Meridan. But, Astro player is playing the audio books perfectly. :thinking:

    Actually.... most of my audiobooks (mp3 format) now have this problem even with Astro player. I tried moving and playing a couple of audiobook files from internal memory and still have the same problem with uneven play, skipping and popping... For me, mp3 music plays fine. I hope this is fixed.

    Anyone figure out a way to fix the music player issues? Stock music player and Mixzing are both broken now.

    No solution, but some music and audio books play fine while others skip, pop, speeds up etc. The problem audio files were loaded by syncing from Windows Media Player versus other files that were copied from my PC to the INC sd card seem to be okay.

    I'm having the same problem with the stock player as well as DoubleTwist. Skipping and I've also been having problems with cutting a song off before it's over and playing the next song. I'm eager to see if anyone has a solution to this problem.
