    So about few days ago I started getting this message in my Samsung S4 Mini music players. The only player that all my songs worked on was Neutron but I don't really like it :s
    I think it started because I renamed all my songs so they would be nicely organized.
    After that, some songs wont play.
    It even says that the time is 0:00

    PLEASE HELP!! 12576111_955479247862417_1943824393_n.jpg

    Just taking a wild guess but it sounds like when you were renaming those files you didn't retain the file type suffix (eg. SongName.mp3). Try renaming a couple of those songs you changed before so they have their .mp3 identifiers back (or .aac or .ogg or whatever file types you save your songs as) and see if your music player can play then again.

    How can I avoid this in the future? How to rename the songs without getting any errors etc

    Just be more careful when you're renaming files. Whenever you want to rename your audio files just edit the part to the left of the period and be sure to leave that file identifier part to the right as is -- a file named originally named 'FileName.mp3' would be 'Changed.mp3' after you edited it.

    Hi, sorry for bothering again :p
    I still haven't fixed my problem and it's really getting to my nerves..
    As you can see on the picture, I have 3 songs.
    I deleted all of my songs on my phone and tried to see where the problem is.
    The second songs called -------> 퍼펄즈(Purfles)- 나쁜짓(a Bad thing) MV works
    It was the original name which came after i converted it on
    http://www.youtube-mp3.org/
    After I renamed it, added the artist and the title, it didn't work :(
    It still shows as a MP3 file but it just doesn't work
    Everything is fine on my computer but not on my phone
    Also it desnt happen to all of my songs, only some of them.
    I really dont know what to do and since English isn't my first languaeg, it's harder for me to explain or find any answers.

    Perhaps contact that website and ask if renaming a ripped audio file causes known issues?

    We can't really help as converting YT content for offline use is against YouTube's T&C, as well as breaching the original owner's copyright.

    A lot of Youtube content is protected by patents so there are DRM restrictions. Some musical artists simply don't want their fan-base to be able to pirate their efforts for free. Some musicians just put their work up on Youtube so they get more exposure to the public so it sounds like you've got a mix of songs of falling into both categories. While there are ways to bypass DRM-protected songs that's something you need to look into yourself, this forum does not support illegally pirating songs.

    There are a number of online sources for freely downloadable content, along with pay-for services like Amazon, Apple iTunes, and Google Play.

    Some songs are rare, hard to find, or available only on vinyl or CDs. Sometimes it just comes down to buying the record or CD and ripping it yourself.
