Last.fm picks up the intents apps like Pocket Casts and Google Music send to bluetooth devices, and hacks that into their scrobble implementation. I guess they figured Google were never going to support them explicitly so that was their only way in. To stop Pocket Casts from scrobbling you'd un-tick the Google Music option in last.fm. The fine people of ...

Couple options : Use the swap file feature of your RAM Manager. That'll give you more (up to 256MB more) memory to play with and might be enough to stave off the music player kill. Toss the RAM Manager and use something (Like MinFreeManager or manually edit the values in /sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/minfree1) that will let you manually specify ...

The problem might not be with your album art, but with your mp3 file. You can try replacing the current album art if any, using a software like Windows Media Player ("WMP") through your computer. All you have to do is to locate the mp3 from your WMP, right click on the current album art and paste a picture. (More info) Also you can make your stock music app ...

Looks like you will need a 3.5mm connector to iPod proprietary 40-pin converter. There are some available on eBay here: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/ipod-female-connector (note -- this link is temporary once the items are sold; if someone finds a permalink to a product page please edit my answer and add it).

Seems to be a common hardware problem on Samsung devices. Easiest solution is to just install the newest Dorimanx kernel for Samsung Galaxy SII. Works for me now. Source: This thread here.

Are your headphones defective or have a weak spot? You can try a couple of things, such as testing this on another Android device. It could potentially be the ROM and its ability to detect headphones properly while doing different things (Multi-tasking in a sort of sense). What you can do is go into Settings and turned Motion off. Sometimes it can sense ...

By default, the stock player has the player controls in Android. Play a song from your stock music player app (the one which was originally included in your mobile) and play a song. When you turn off the screen and get back to the lock screen, you must be able to see the player controls. You can also try Sony Walkman which offers a number of features ...

I've found the problem; I had just one track by this artist in another album, and it was tagged "The Chromatics". "Chromatics" and "The Chromatics" were probably (rightfully) considered as the same artist, but Android didn't pick the right one out of the two to display. I've edited this track's artist tag and now every track by this artist appears correctly ...

As I've mentioned in the comments already (and which harbichidian thankfully approved), this can be done using tasker: Condition: State → Docked Task: (put something here you want to be done when placing the device in dock, or substitute some dummy like "Variable Set: %DUMMY = 1") Exit Task: Media Control → Pause There might be several other approaches ...

A good keyword combination is already given by your question: a music player which should play folder-wise should be found using the keywords "folder play", "folder player", and similar combinations. In fact, there are even some players named exactly such, e.g. Music Folder Player, Folder Player, and many more.

One of the advantages of a physical SD card: unmounting and re-mounting it triggers the media scanner. But that's unlikely to be an option for you. 1 Depending on your Android version, there are different apps available on Google Play to help you out. The "version difference": starting with Kitkat, the old mechanism of triggering the media scanner does no ...

Yes: there are essentially three possibilities. Wired headphones often have extra controls inline (on the cable). You have to be careful when buying these: the way the controls signal to the phone is not standardized, so which one you need depends on who manufactured your phone. It's really easy to find "iPhone-compatible" ones, but you may have to search ...

I don't know about this app specifically, but I can answer based on the usual behaviour of music players. If music is playing when you leave the app the usual way, the app starts a foreground service to keep playing the music. This is a special kind of service: it shows an "Ongoing" notification and Android will not kill it to free memory, unless it's really ...

The most obvious explanation is that the file is incomplete: there's only a small fraction of the file there, or only the first section of the file is readable. Given that the symptoms you report in your other question point to SD card failure, that seems the most likely cause for this too. If this is a different SD card, it could be that the card itself ...

Farrel, the only way I've found to allow Google Music to scrobble to Last.fm but not Pocket Cast is to stream podcasts rather than downloading them — that seems to work. I realise that this is not always ideal. Don't forget you can delete tracks from your last.fm profile/library but I'm not sure if that is persistent. Again, not ideal.

Very unlikely. That's the MediaScanner's responsibility. For faster access it scans all directories on given events (e.g. SDCard mounted, boot_completed) and stores the results in a database, where most players pick it up from. So you can either use a tool like e.g. SDrescan to trigger the MediaPlayer's scan whenever you've manipulated files -- or find ...
