Motorola Motocast :: Sync Music To Atrix 2 Device?
Dec 12, 2011
I've been having a lot of trouble getting this done, and it's quite frustrating. I want to stream music from my computer to my Atrix phone so I can listen to my computer music library anywhere. That's all. All Motocast USB lets me do is sync my music to the SD card, which I DON'T want to do.
Connecting with motocast? Because I can't at all. Won't synch, freezes at the loading screen. On win7 64bit pro. I've been trying for 2 days. Just about to switch to an iPhone 4s. I have motocast setup and can't synch at all...
Motocast app was preloaded on new razr. I manually loaded motocast software on desktop and laptop. Motocast working great for getting pictures to and from desktop & laptop. I called tech suppoirt for email problem and was told to update my device to the latest OS. I did this and after rebooting device, there was no motocast app/logo and no USB selection window. I now can not download pics and can only upload files from my desktop and laptop.
I have it set up on my PC where I have 3 folders shared. I have a Movies folder, I have a TV Shows folder, and I have a Mixsets folder. I like to listen to DJ mixsets that can be rather large, anywhere from 50MB to 150MB in size. I can access my movies/tv shows off my PC at home just fine when I'm on a wireless network. I just go into Gallery>MotoCast and there i have my TV shows in one folder and Movies in another folder. The folder I named Dj Mixsets does not show up in either Gallery or Music app.That's fine cause when I go to the Files app, I can see all three folders on my PC. From there, I can still access my TV Shows and Movies just fine. But when I try to listen to any of the mixsets, it says Cannot connect to network, please try again. This is weird cause the Droid shows my home PC as "Online". Is it because the music files are really large that it won't play? MotoCast can play larger size video files no problem.
I was wondering, what type of music player is on Atrix2? Is it considered a Basic Player? Does it support any "Advanced" features, Does it Support the same various types as Original Atrix (Support of various MP3, MP4 Itunes ect) and can anyone suggest or recommend a good "Advanced Player" App as well.
When I long press a song in my music library, window open with these 4 options :Play, Add to playlist, Set as ringtone, Delete.My question is that How should I transfer any song to another device which is connected to my phone through blue tooth.I tried a lot but did not find any option to trnsfer song through blue tooth to another device.
I've been trying to sync phone to get music from Itunes. Tried Double twist... when connected my computer says there was a problem and it had to close. Send report...blah blah blah. Okay... so this didn't work. I down loaded tunesync..looks like a great app... somehow I cannot not get it to sync my playlists or music whether using wifi or usb connection. Says it's searching for connection.
MTP USB Device Failed and i have no axses to my phone at all threw my computer i have even uninstalled and reinstalled no go i even tried the older motocast it wont even work now someone please help how do i fix it? ever since the update i have this issue now and i cant fix it no matter what i do. now i cant even putmy music on my phone or pictures nothing.
While setting up my motocast i dropped a letter in my email(username) on the device so now it does not match the login on my PC. This is causing me to be unable to sync motocast. How do I change my login on my device?
So its like this; I reboot PC; play Video games for a few hours and just as I'm about to go to bed I launch Motocast (on computer)
I then turn off my monitor of my computer and head to bed with my cell phone in hand.
I then use my WIFI and access Motocast and stream Videos. Its a .wmv format; it plays but then freezes up, plays then freezes up; I usually can deal with it. But after selecting a different video to play I get an error message saying "requires flash to play video" then a few other videos wont play. Then when I quit Motocast on my cell phone and go back in, it says that my Computer is offline
I was really glad that Motorola had finally released a sync utility for mac! My phone hasn't been able to do this since I bought it. Anyway. I have downloaded and installed the latest version of MotoCast App and installed 'Motorola PIM Sync' on my Milestone device (as per instructed on the website.) I've activated the app on my phone 'Contact Sync App is now Active' message appeared.
I've done everything correctly right? MotoCast USB opens up, and displays the 'Please wait while MotoCast USB loads content from your phone'. I can leave it there for up to half an hour and no progress is indicated. It is really important that I can sync my phone.
My music directory wont load, but my other folders will. I do have alot of music that I have iTunes keep organized, but when I first installed Motocast it worked fine, and it hasnt since the new update.
My home service is very good (Verizon FiOS with 35Mbps up and 35Mbps down, verified speeds with speedtest.net). The area where I live has 4G coverage, and my phone shows a 4G connection is established. I don't see any bandwidth throttling via the Verizon router at home, so the Motocast client on my PC should have full access to the available bandwidth.Is it possible to improve the streaming speed, or is this just an overloaded radio tower in my area and I'm out of luck?
For some reason I can only view my computer files through the Files app not the Music or Gallery app. It's a hassle to have to go folder to folder to listen to music. if any can tell me how to view them through the Music app. Im using a Droid Razr. Yes the little icon at the top has my home computer checkmarked. Yes my home computer is labled "Online" and yes I'm using WiFi/4G.
Trying to get moto cast to work I can see pictures, videos and music...It will not play music files just starts like it would then get the constant blue circle that just goes around and around and song never comes on.
Have a new RAZR bought in Israel 1 month ago.Loaded basic audio files to My Music.Had to delete them all. Now the My Music folder shows the files there yet grayed out and none of them usable.I can only think to delete my music app and reload it to clear out the ghosted files . (if delete / reload is even possible)I am able to load other files and play them though.The internal memory was formatted and the SD card also yet no change.Tried to find the files yet do not know where they may be cached / records of the old files held.Also, Is remove and reinstall My music app straight forward such as delete and reload it?
MotoCast Wireless needs an option to only use music files from "my_music/folder/path/" or, alternatively, only use music files from my iTunes library.As it stands, MotoCast Wireless settings ask nebulously for the paths to, "[any and all] folders containing media and documents you want to be remotely accessible."Because some programs keep files that are technically "media" type files in the documents path, my MotoCast Library online shows up with a pantload of "songs" by "unknown artist".My meticulously maintained music library has ZERO tracks by "unknown artist". Ditto for "unknown album". Same for "songs" with no name or no genre. MotoCast is, without asking me, including all sorts of sound effect and video clip and other mish-mash of media riff raff that it has tumbled upon in my document folders..It's nice that you want MotoCast to be an all'round helpful product, but the document functions need to be separated from the music and the pictures, and each of those should be separated from the documents.
When I try to sync media from the device I get a the following warning " In order to perform the sync process in MotoCast USB you must first stop the sync process in Windows Media Player." I'm using Win7 Ultimate and have no devices set to sync to WMP 12, when I try to stop the processes in taskmgr they just immediately turn right back on.
Droid Razr; using MotoCast Wireless. XP computer is on all the time, no trouble connecting. Music, photos and documents all present and available all the time.But my iTunes playlists are not. Major bummer. MotoCast playback quality is far superior to G-music, but I really need my playlists!Itunes data folders are all in the normal places. The MotoCast docs clearly say that iTunes playlists are usable and in one place says expressly, "Note: Currently MotoCast Wireless supports playlists from iTunes only."
I have a motorola Atrix 4G running Android 2.3.4 and I recently wiped all the music off my phone and synced it with my google music. I have all my music set to availible offline, so it is all stored locally on my phone, but the HDMI entertainment app doesn't detect any music, nor does the motoblur music app. I don't really care about the motoblur music app but how can I get my music recognized by the HDMI entertainment system app (is app the right word for the HDMI entertainment interface?), or is there a new app I can get that will recognize the music synced by google music?
I just finished the ICS soak for Bionic... and I still cannot log in to motocast due to a popup yelling at me that i have an unsupported device. Even though the ICS update ADDED the app to my phone and let me uninstall zumocast...Im really frustrated cause when i read the update notes say it was adding motocast to my phone i removed zumo from my laptop and instantly removed zumo before trying motocast.
I thought it would be a good idea to sync my music via the Blackberry desktop program. however since i have done this my torch does not like it when i want to make a playlist from the music on my media card. I want my device to unsync, which i have tried to do many times via the desktop program and even tried to select "forget this device"
I want my torch to forget my "home" music and not at all have the option to sync music via wifi or anything! I used to be able to easily make playlist from music on my SD media card but now it won't let me...
After updating to ics motocast wants to install on my pc and does not give me an option to say no and not have it show again, like the vista start screen. I decided to install motocast and just ignore it but when I rebooted it started my browser with a video for backup assistant after looking thru msconfig and regedit I believe this program to be malware like microsoft security 2012 or many other softwares that use extortion to sell their product. I am not questioning the validity of the backup software but rather the way it like motocast doesn't give me an option. When I called Verizon they said it was a Motorola problem so can someone please tell me how to get this MALWARE from loading! I did get the browser to stop loading after removing all of motocast via add/remove.
