Stock player is the one I always come back to... works the best for me.
I finally settled on Mixzing.
Poweramp doesn't recognize the tags on some of my songs, while both the stock and Mixzing do. The controls are also very small and cluttered compared to those two.
The stock player was OK for me until i realized you can't delete something out of a playlist without deleting the file outright!
Mixzing got two more big pluses - the lock screen widget with swipe/tap control (don't have to aim for buttons when driving!) and it plays my videos seamlessly (improved the playback of a troublesome one, but i'll still probably redo it on the computer and reload it). The only thing i don't like about it is there's no time ticker on the widgets - bar or otherwise - and that looks like it should be easy to put on there.
I use the stock player, but that's an easier decision when my current ROM of choice (Myn's Warm 2.2 RLS5) offers some nice tweaking via DSP Manager. I also use a 3rd-party cover art downloaded for any cover art issues.
I tried Poweramp (and a couple others) but Poweramp major messed up my album art, and others were overly and unnecessarily complicated or busy.
That DSP Manager on Myn's just cause a lot of clipping and distortion for me.
music mod +1
Does it still have the blue hue to it? That's the killer for me. I need greyscaled widgets or else it will clash with the rest of my theme.
That's odd. It works very well for me. I just made subtle changes to the Equalizer and also enable Virtual Room and it works very well. Distortion only sometimes occurs when volume is at 100% but that is too loud anyway.
Oh, I see. Makes sense why you didn't like it.
The buttons seem to be white with a blue hue, but the rest of the 3X3 widget is transparent w/ exception to the album art and the buttons.
Making the widget background transparent or not is in settings.
Also, while I don't like the blue hue on the widget buttons it's not enough to make me quit the player for another. Ideally, making the hue a custom color will happen sometime
Stock Player with Music Mod. Simple yet great
IM BACK ON THE MOTHER ****ING LLAMA. never thought id be happy to use Winamp again ^_^
i switched because "Music" would never actually shut down and would drain my battery like hell. only way to get rid of it was to reset the phone
Anybody using PowerAmp that has had problems with the player's repeat for 1 artist? I had my phone connected in my car and was listening to a particular artist, but for whatever reason I couldn't fast forward to the next song or back track to previous songs, while it was on repeat for 1 artist.
Then, this morning, I had it on repeat all songs for 1 artist and it was switching to different artists. weird.
Took the words right out of my mouth. I user the Stock player when I'm driving in my car because of the lock screen controls, I use Music Mod for everything.
Still rocking PowerAMP and loving it. Audiogalaxy once in awhile but it's been skipping lately. BS.
I use the cube. The problem I have with the stock music player, Music Mod, and many of the other apps, is thier inability to sync album cover art. Some might not care about the album art, but it gets on my nerves listening to Metallica with Beyonce's album art. The Cube is the only app I have been able to find; that allows you to select and sync album art related to its corrosponding album.
PowerAMP never mixed up any album art for me. Once in awhile it won't show it, which is annoying, but it's very rare.
Ive tried pretty much every player in here except for ones I would have to pay for and have always had the same problem with all of them, a few of my favorite albums are live DJ sets with the songs chopped. theres no real breaks anywhere in the music but all of the players leave a split second gap. PowerAMP so far has been the shortest gapwise. Does anyone know of any truly seamless media players?
Ya, poweramp gave me some problems, so mixzing is what I landed on. It has problems, but for the most part I love it. I love the video player with it, the EQ is a nice addition, and the 2x2 app fits perfectly on my lock screen for easy access (I use widget locker). I also use audiogalaxy too though. If the music is on my SD card, then mixzing is definitely better, but audiogalaxy has all my music on it (it takes music from an internet source that collects music from your desktop)
i have been using mixzing but lately it seems like if i lock/unlock my phone the music will slightly pause.. has anyone else noticed this?
seems like the latest update of widget locker fixed this..whoohoo!
I use the stock HOWEVER...I'm not too happy with it. If you want to know why, you can find my thread about it or read below.
I am upset because mainly how it is kind of not friendly in the view of...I'll be searching through music, find an artist say "Mudvayne", click it, listen to it, go back to the Artists' page and be all the way at the top with the numbers and A's whereas being in the M's where I left off.
I have alot of music and am a music fan so my 16GB SD Card is about full of music...I've only got about 572MB left lol...
