I just bought this device, love it so far. When I use a Google Voice command like, "play Madonna", it defaults to Sound Picker and doesn't play any songs. I noticed Music app is not even listed as a choice. See pic.
Is there a way to have the stock Music app as one of the choices instead of Sound Picker?
The HTC Music player cannot find the songs that I downloaded from Google Play Music? I can't find them either using ES File Explorer although they always show up in the Google "Play Music" app. I've configured the songs that I downloaded from Google "Play Music" to download to the phone and they show as "Pinned" in the "Play Music" app. Lastly I confirmed that the music is on the phone by playing them with "Play Music" while the phone is is airplane mode. I want the default HTC music player to play these songs since that player is available from the lock screen and blink feed.
I have a serious problem involving my music files which I have transferred via USB to my Nexus 5. After a system update to Android 5.1, my local music files still exist on the device but DO NOT show up in any music player. I have tried to use Google Play Music (my default music player) as well as other music players from the Play Store. ALL indicate that I have zero song files on my device which I know is definitely NOT true. I used to be able to play them and view all albums in Google Play Music but now the music files are ONLY accessible via ES File Explorer.
Nexus 5, 32 GB Android 5.1 Google Play Music 5.8.1836R.1787745
I do not wish to have to play music manually through the file explorer, and I NEED at least Google Play Music working
With my S4, when I connected to bluetooth in my car and then switched to Media, it automatically started playing Google Play Music. Now with the S6, doing the same thing plays local "music" (ringtones) via the built in Samsung Music app. I can't find a way to change the default, and I can't disable the Music app. it's possible to make another music app the default, and if so how?
My situation is the base player was working fine for my needs. I had some music by the band "Kix". I added a song by a different band called "The Kix", and after uploading, all the "Kix" songs had been changed to "The Kix".
In trying to change the name of "Kix" back to the way it should be (no "The"), I have:
1) Copied all music from SD to Laptop. 2) Using Laptop, I went into the Properties of each song, updating and verifying all had the correct Title, Album Artist, Contributing Artist, and Genre. - including deleting the song from "The Kix" so there wouldn't be any confusion within the program. 3) Deleted the existing Music folder from the LG 4) After deleting the folder from the LG, I then copied the folder with updated information from my laptop back to the LG.
I expected that the new data would take, and that "Kix" would return, along with some other updates I had made. When I looked at the stock music player, I saw that most of the data changes (available through the Details option after a long press on the song) took, but for some reason "Kix" is still displaying as "The Kix".
I also noticed I couldn't use my old Playlist names, making me think that there are cookies/files (or the like) stored somewhere on the phone, and that data is still being accessed.
I then tried MediaMonkey, but that made things even worse when it imported the playlist and songs (duplicate songs, songs with wrong artist or album title, songs with lost data), and I'll be spending more time correcting their import errors than anything.
I recently bought an HTC One M9 and am generally pretty happy with it, except for the way it handles music files.
The stock music player displays downloaded amazon files with their full (tagged?) titles, e.g.
if I amend the title it the phone claims it can't find the track *at all*.
It also claims that it cannot find some downloaded tracks from amazon *at all*. Yesterday I renamed one track (it disappeared from the phone's half-arsed gaze), moved the 'correctly' (see above) named track from the SD card to the internal drive and back again. Stock music player (and Google music player) couldn't locate it. So I deleted all copies and redownloaded to the SD card. Still bugger all. However, it could find this version on the internal drive so ... go figure.
I suppose the main questions are:
1) Why can't the phone's stock music player find all my downloaded tracks when they're located on the SD card? It's frankly hit and miss.
2) Why do both music players pitch a fit when I try to rename 'ugly' titled songs?
So i transferred my whole music library to S6 and happily listened to it via the stock music player. Then much later when I had downloaded some new apps and edited settings, I returned to the music player to see that all my songs had vanished. I still have them on the memory and Poweramp can still find them, but not the stock music player?
I've had this phone for about a week now and being more comfortable with it I'm using more features and have an issue with the music app and widget. It wont play all my music. The app will play each song individually when manually selected but when on the song list is plays one to two songs after in order then jumps to the songs listed under "I" and repeats that segment (the songs that title starts with I) instead of staying in order, it has also done this with "M" once, have tried clearing cashe and data of the app with no change in result. Has anyone else had this problem (P.S. I'ma give up saying I wont by Motorola anymore, had the perfect chance to switch over when I signed the contract for 4G service and... bought Moto, just the brand me and my family have used as long as I can remember)
Any one found a way (w/o rooting) to disable the stock music player? I discovered PowerAmp a while back while using my D1. It was rooted so it was easy to disable those apps that I didn't want to ever start. Now, that I have upgraded to the Bionic, I can't play/pause or forward/back using the volume buttons nor my BT headset without it starting the stock player.
Has anyone had any issues with the music player skipping about 30 seconds into any songs? Not just once but a few times while using. I run 25 to 30 miles a week and the music player is really getting annoying! I've tried 4 different sets of headphones and it's definitely not the headphones themselves maybe something internal. Also on my second phone here. The first one started randomly resetting itself, also had skipping issues. This one only has the skipping issues so far.
Is anyone experiencing major lag in the stock gingerbread music player? Changing songs takes forever and it constantly force closes. It's been like this since the update.I do not want to use any third party music player apps.
I have a few Vietnamese song albums with album names, song names and singers are all in Vietnamese characters (unicode fonts). These albums have no problem showing it correct Vietnamese characters when played by Google Play Music app on my HTC M8 (running stock Android 6.0).
However, when I transferred these albums to my new Nexus 6P, names of the albums, songs and singers are not displayed correctly. Some, or all, characters are "replaced" by some strange characters (looks like Chinese, Koreans... characters). This causes one album now become a number of different albums (sharing the same album cover, but different names due to its album names are now spelled differently. Same problem happens if you sort by singers (one singer now becomes more than one). PS. English song albums are not affected by this.
The song title and artist does not display when streaming music from Nokia Music on my Windows Phone through my car stereos' bluetooth connection. It also does not allow me to skip songs using my car stereo.
The Zune music player on my Windows Phone has this functionality.
Music, podcasts, whenever I try to play anything in the music app, the timer stays at 0:00 when I press play. Any other part of the app acts like it's playing something, but it isn't. Other apps work (Video). It's just the one app, but It won't let me delete or reinstall it.
Before updating to the official ics, I uploaded my music to Dropbox. Yesterday, I downloaded it back onto the phone. Today, I tried to listen to music but music player said "does not support this type of file".
I used to download several podcasts directly to my iPhone 4S each morning through iTunes and play them using the iPhone music player later in the day. Last week I noticed the download icons in iTunes changed (software update maybe?). The podcasts still download in iTunes but they no longer appear in the music player app (the old episodes are still there in the podcast menu). I can still play the new podcasts in iTunes but it does not automatically go to the next file when one ends like the music player does. This is annoying when listening to multiple shorter files. Also, I am concerned iTunes will not play the episodes if it can't connect to the server. Tested this out in airplane mode and it would not even let me access the iTunes podcasts despite supposedly being "downloaded". My mobile reception is poor in the office and there are times accessing iTunes is very slow or impossible.There are also times when I listen to them while in the car on trips through areas with little or no mobile data service.
TL;DR: iTunes podcast downloads used to show up in iPhone music player. Now they don't.

Ovi Player on Windows does not start playing the samples. When I click on the "30 s sample" play button, the button turns into a revolving "doing something" indicator but the sample never starts to play. I have used this exact same computer before and sometimes it has started to play and sometimes is has not. I have never had problems playing the songs I have already purchased, they start playing immediately.
This is a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop with the latest Ovi Player on WLAN. I have tried rebooting the computer and the network router. I have also tried clearing the network browser cache and cookies. I have tried to play samples without Ovi Player just by connecting to [url]... using Firefox and IE, but playing the samples just does not start. I have also tried another computer, a desktop computer with Windows Vista with the latest Ovi Player with a wired connection to the same router, but playing the samples does not work there, either. The samples have worked sometimes on that computer, too. And also that computer plays the existing songs like a charm.
I have a problem with my galaxy s5. When I have it plugged into my car stereo using an aux cord every time I change songs it makes a "pop pop" sound like the speakers are cutting out. This only happens with my phone and no one elses.
I do have a few months old X6, which has worked quite fine so far. Now, surprisingly Music Player gives just "System Error" when trying to use it i.e. trying to play a song from the lists. I can play the songs direct from the X6 file manager, but not by the Music Player.
I've done all the normal stuff, e.g. installed firmware again, hard reset, etc. without any success. Seems to be that the library index, or related has been corrupted. Library updating does not work neither. Any ideas? Does anyone now where to find the library index (or related) file to be deleted? And furthermore to re-build the index again?
