What I've done in the past (and appears to have worked here, too): Go to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications Clear the data/cache for the Media Storage app (it's a system service/app) Unmount and remount your SD card via some means. Re-launching a music app after doing this will force it to rebuild the database, which can take a little bit ...

They're stored in your music.db file - mine is /data/data/com.google.android.music/databases; I'm not sure if this is exactly the same across all devices but I'd guess it probably is. They live in a combination of the LISTS and LISTITEMS tables, which are defined as such: sqlite> .schema lists .schema lists CREATE TABLE LISTS(Id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY ...

Download the app called Rescan Media from the market, run it then go back to your Music player. The music that you downloaded from dropbox should now show up. There are other ways to force this media sync (unmount / remount SD should do it) but this app makes it just the press of a button.

I did some googling and stumbled across this post on androidforums.com which has some suggestions: There are several apps which appear to provide this functionality. BTmono is the only free one I found that isn't limited to a certain length of time. It requires Android 2.2+. There are several other similar apps that you can also see at that link. This ...

VLC for Android is reported to support opus format. (src)

You can try Button Remapper, but I am not 100% sure if your device is supported. if its not, you could contact the dev and see if he can add support, he recently added support for the Galaxy S devices. Edit Actually, from looking at that thread, it may be supported already. I see there are "media" actions that can be changed...

Generally, audio apps use the media channel, which will be played over Bluetooth if your Bluetooth device supports that A2DP profile. Check the specs on your headset to see if it supports A2DP -- if it does, please edit your question to include additional information on the music app you use and the make and model of your headset.

OK, I'll answer my own question on this one because I just came across MortPlayer. It does EXACTLY what I want: it will load M3U files or just play all files in a directory.

This is a feature of CyanogenMod. Pressing and briefly holding one of the volume buttons when the screen is off will cause the music player to skip forward (volume up) or backward (volume down). The intention is that this allows you to skip tracks and whatnot without having to unlock the device. If you find it annoying then you can disable it completely in ...

This has basically been answered in the comments above but I'll wrap it all up into an answer: No, you can't play songs that have Apple's Fairplay DRM protection on your Android phone without removing the DRM protection (which technically violates Apple's toc). As Edarerathis pointed out, Songbird doesn't actually support Fairplay DRM'd media, Quicktime ...

Ah, cripes. I don't know what on Earth put this .nomedia file on the root of my SD card. Problem fixed.

Try isyncr. They have a wifi add on also.

I am practically certain that the soundwire app will do what you want it to do (if I have it the right way around).

If you can skip the part with the "standard music player", there would be some solutions involving DLNA/uPnP. This would require an uPnP compatible device at your speakers end (e.g. a fitting programm on your PC), and a streaming app on the devices. Some devices have such a streaming app pre-installed, so you can share directly from your device. If not, you ...

There is a program that does this for the iPhone call shairport4w. It basically uses the air play feature of the iPhone to play all audio through a wifi router to a pc running this software. Edit: Ok so download Airstream. Then go to the PC you want to play from, and download Shairport4w. You'll need the bonjour service from apple installed for this to ...

This same thing has happened to me and I've only had my s6 Edge a little over a week. I went through each file in my files and device storage and deleted ".nomedia" files. All of my pictures are now back in the gallery.

You could always put the phone in "silent" mode. That'll silence everything but media.

You could install XBMC on the linux box then use the XBMC Remote app on your Android device to control the media playing through XBMC.

Generally, Galaxy devices have AllShare app which is DLNA certified software. If your device doesn't have AllShare, install Skifta. Now, all you need is a DLNA certified media streaming server on PC. Fortunately, Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP has this capability. So, you don't need extra software. Make sure your music collection is in WMP library....

I will answer your question in the meaning "How can I control both volume and track skip on my Android device from my headphones?". This might not be supported by the system itself, but the Playstore holds a number of solutions available. Depending on your headset and Android device, one of them might work better than the other: JAYS Headset Control ...

I've found GoneMAD Music Player and Neutron Music Player support playback of Opus. Update: If gapless playback is an important feature to you try XMMS2 or Rockbox.Both are still in the development stages as far as Android is concerned but they are both worthy of a mention. XMMS2 is a music player server, so you will also need to download a controller to use ...

Sure. Just turn off audio notifications. That won't have any effect on the media volume. This will, of course, turn off the phone ringer, which you may not want.

Updated answer: Check if you have a hidden file named .nomedia (double check also for uppercase name) on device memory (storage folder) and delete. Go to Settings > Apps -> ALL -< Media Storage. Select Clear data + Clear defaults. Disable the App. Reboot the device. Now enable again Settings > Apps -> ALL -< Media Storage. Wait a couple of minutes (...
