    When I try to play music on my N3, it will randomly skip to the next song for no reason. It doesn't do it all the time but about 60% of the time. Is this a fault of the stock music player or something else?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could be in shuffle mode. I havn't used the stock music player since it crapped out on me about 5 days into having my Note 3 so I honestly don't remember what the shuffle mode icon looks like or how to stop or initiate it. I've been using Power Amp Pro as my Music Player since then without any problems.

    I appreciate the response but I'm not in any mode as far as I know. The skipping will happen at various times into the song. Sometimes right after it starts and other times when the song is half over it will just skip to the next song in my library. Not sure why?

    If you didn't rip your tunes yourself it could be that the original author was having some issues with their system. I have run into free files online that were sloppily encoded. My personal files function flawlessly except when I've had scratches on my CDs. Now I rip them as soon as I get the CD avoiding that problem.

    I suspect I know what the issue might be. There is the "Air view" "air gesture" modes on the N3. One of them. not sure where. Will advance or skip a song in the stock music app if your hand waves across the sensor. Example. in my car I plug the n3 into the car speakers. I hit play on the stock music app for a specific song, but then as I move my hand away from the phone.. the sensor notices and skips it.

    here is a test. start a song in the stock music app and test if you semi-slowly move your hand across the face of the phone (note that you dont have to physically touch the phone for this to work.. hence the "air" component" and see if it skips. If it does.. consider if the skipping you experience occurs possibly when something passes across the face of the phone.

    If you enable Air gesture it will skip to the next song with a simple swipe of your hand/finger across the screen.

    Air view will allow you to do things without touching the screen.
