Lumia 1320 :: Cannot Play Music Through Bluetooth - Always Stutters And Skips
Sep 1, 2014
I was always very positive about the 1320, but now, after 2 months, the faults are starting to annoy me. This is the biggest problem: I can't play music through bluetooth. It always stutters and skips. Even if I put the phone next to the device. Even on other devices.
Love the phone and hopefully this is a basic operation I missed somewhere, but when I connect handsfree to my Bluetooth in the car, calls work great but when I play music it comes out the phone's speakers and not the car.
Similar when I plugged in the phone to a USB input on a boombox, the music plays from Zune over the phone's speakers.
I loved my Lumia 1020 but could not get music to play via Bluetooth in either of my cars no matter what I tried. It says it connects fine for phone and music and I can receive calls, I can hear and dictate texts, but when it comes to music the phone plays one song for 1 second and then continually loops trying to play the song but only ever makes it 1 second. In the Toyota, it also doesn't send any song information. I have unlinked bluetooth, relinked it, reset the phone, disconnected voice and left music, and had no luck.
My cars are a 2011 Tundra Platinum and 2013 Infiniti JX. I've also read some people had the same issue with Audi and Lexus.
Additionally, both of my cars have USB jacks to interface and play music through with the Navigation/sound system directly and that doesn't work either. The cars completely don't recognize it. Androids and iPhones all work flawlessly.
I honestly had become a big Lumia 1020/WP8 fan and love what Nokia offers in software. I actually really like the WP8 interface as well but not having Bluetooth connectivity to my vehicles (for both voice and music streaming) is a deal-breaker.
When playing streaming content using the XBox Music player the song will skip at about 10 seconds before the end of the song. The issue is only with streamed content (songs stored local on the device work fine)It does not appear to repro with the Nokia music playerKnown issue? Other than downloading the song is there a work around?
Since receiving 8.1 update,Two issues have appeared on my 1320,Bluetooth keeps dropping out when using it in my car for telephone calls,was perfect prior to this.Also when web browsing keeps taking to last main of a site I visited previously,I have to keep refreshing page or delete history.
I just downloaded all my music to the phone. A number of these files I've had for "years" and were actually copied from CD's when you could do that sort of thing. Some files just say "track #" on the phone rather then the name of the song. On my computer I have them shown as song title, but obviously the phone picked up something different. Can the title "track #" be changed to the "actual title" and, if so, how?
I have a 1320 that I got brand new back on Black Friday from Cricket. The problem is after it has been on for a while, the wireless and/or bluetooth or both shutoff. When I bring the status bar down, the wireless icon and/or the bluetooth icon will be cleared out and not active. If I try to turn it back on, nothing happens, the icons stay black. I reboot and usually that fixes it but not always. Sometimes I have to reboot it a couple of times.
Also my phone sometimes reboots when I'm using the GPS to track my bike rides when the phone is in my bag. I know that because when I get to the end of my ride and check the app, Cyclometer, it stays "it has been shut off, do you want to resume" or something to that effect and then I resume it and a portion of my ride is missing from when it apparently has rebooted. I also have had it reboot on me in the middle of something that doesn't happen often.
My phone is on 8.1 and has no more pending updates. this is eating up my data plan because I normally use wireless at home. I also can't use my bluetooth speaker while riding because if I connect my bluetooth speaker to my phone, the bluetooth will shut off after about 15-25 minutes of use. It first starts to become somewhat intermittent for couple of minutes then bluetooth shuts off altogether.
When you play music using bluetooth there is a lag or skipping in music. Like 1 sec. skipping in every 1-3 minutes or sometimes 30secs - up. I think the problem is the android lollipop. I used to connect my z5 in jbl xtreme. my huawei telpad running android kitkat has no problem in playing music using bluetooth. But my z5 and my wife's asus selfie running android lollilop there is a lag or skipping problem.
How to access your music collection from OneDrive with Xbox Music | Windows Central
However, I already had a folder called "music" in my OneDrive root folder (i.e. OneDriveMusic). When I open my Xbox Music app on my Icon, it doesn't see the folder and doesn't see the music that I already have there. So how do I get it to work. It's working fine on my SP3.
I checked my Xbox account and it shows I'm signed in.
I have synced my blackberry bold bluetooth with my honda and I can seamlessly accept/receive calls. I am yet to figure out on how to play music using my phone. When I play music on my phone, the sound comes from phone speakers and not from car stereo. I guess since its bluetooth connected, it should automatically play music through car stereo when I play it on my blackberry.
after updating my X10 to 2.3, the music player skips during playback very often, and it's becoming near unlisten-able. I did a repair and that didn't solve the problem, and it appears i'm not the only one with this issue after some internet searching. I highly doubt SE are going to release another update fixing this problem.

I would like to play my iPhone music to my computer using bluetooth, as I can in my car or to a bluetooth speaker... Is this possible? or, do I need to connect at cable from the phone to the computer. Bluetooth is how I would like to do this because I already have my home stereo connected to my computer using the cable connection.

The stock music app in my 1520 is not playing any music. I've tried adding and removing then adding again the mp3 files but the app just lists the songs down and nothing happens when i click on it. My phone simply goes back to the home screen.
i have iphone 4, iphone 4s and ipod and on all units some songs stop playing and skips to the next song. i have unchecked sync music and put it back on again and still the same result. I also set up a new library and no luck there either.
I am having problems with my Xoom wifi skipping while I am multitasking. I notice it most while browsing. This is no surprise as using the browser is cpu intensive, but I have noticed it other times as well. I thought it might be the default music player, but once they fixed the Pandora force close issue on the Xoom wifi I noticed the same problem with Pandora.
When I connect my phone to my cars Bluetooth it automatically starts playing music from Samsungs Music app. The issue is I have Google All Access so none of my music is in that app. Is there a way to have Google Music play by default when connected instead of Samsungs Music app? I checked to see if Samsungs app was set as a default but it wasn't and I can't find any auto play options, I also can't just disable the music app. Oddly enough sometimes it will open Google music and other times it will open Samsung Music even if the last time I was in the car I used Google Music.
MA 1.6.6. N16 Playing music works ok but the first time this happened it was after 1 hour. Then I get a popup dialog saying "You must set a fit song". The music then skips through the song and then skips songs continually.
This happens everytime I workout. Today it happened after 20 minutes Since I have never set a fit song I tried to set one. I had to turn off the music.
This only started happening after the last update to the one shown above.
