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 ...

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.

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 ...

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...

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 ...

Try Twonky. Instantly stream media from your phone to devices on your home network! It can stream not only to you PC but to other DLNA capable device and not only music but photo and other stuff.

Try isyncr. They have a wifi add on also.

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 ...

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.

looking around looks like the best options would be: uloops reloop caustic nanoloop I havent tried any of these on my tablet yet however (advent vega). let me know what you find

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 ...

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

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 ...

There are various options. I actually use Windows Media Player. It actually does a pretty good job syncing, although I'm not fond of the interface in general. I use PowerAmp to play my music, but any player should work. This does require a cable however. AirSync syncs your playlist over the air. It sounds convenient but it costs $4.99, but since you ...

Try the latest Museek player. It has support for gapless playback. You need to enable it from within the ADVANCED settings in the app. There's also PowerAmp and Winamp which seemingly offer decent gapless playback quality.

Such as these? AudioScopeLT - Beautiful Lines Spectral Audio Analyzer Audio Visualizer

There's an App called "Just Playlists" that states the "none repeating shuffle" as one of its features: http://www.androidzoom.com/android_applications/media_and_video/just-playlists_byqz.html

Sorry, this is a bit of a half-answer - I haven't worked it right the way though yet - but I think you could do something like the following using the (amazing) Tasker app. ON 'Screen Off', IF current music track = "", SET Media Volume = 0 ON 'Screen On' set volume back to normal) By checking for a currently playing track, it won't mute whilst you are ...

I'd recommend installing mpd on the linux server and an mpd client on the android device. The squeezebox server software doesn't play audio directly so you would have to either install a player like SoftSqueeze or SqueezePlay on the server, or use another music application to play the mp3 stream. You didn't ask about it, but if you want to play music ...

I've used MortPlayer and it supports chapters, multiple bookmarks and remembers your place. As far as chapters go, it depends on how the audio book is setup, most mp3 audio books save each chapter as a different track and that works just fine. Also, it's free. While I haven't tried it, it's my understanding that Ambling Book Player Pro is the cats meow of ...

It's been reported as a known issue on code.google.com. There's a long list of 79 comments which seem to indicate that rooting and adding a program called "Autostarts" fixes the problem. This is obviously not something everyone is going to want to do... be careful if you go that route.

There does not appear to be a way, no. (Some information in this forum thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-audio-video/40610-zune-not-droid-friendly.html) Apparently, DRM'd wma files require a Zune device. Since Droid ≠ Zune, it's not going to work. Unless and until Microsoft decides they want to build a Zune App (à la the way Amazon has a Kindle ...

Are you sure your tags are correct, it sounds like they're not? Try looking at the files with something like MP3Tag or MediaMonkey they should show exactly which tags are in there and let you clear out any corrupted tags.

Not free, but you probably can use Taskerto do this. I use Pocket Casts to listen to podcasts, and have a Tasker profile set up: 3 Contexts: Shake left-right; app Pocket Cast running; Not Docked Car 2 Tasks: Notify (turn LED on, title "Sleep"); Wait 12 minutes, then Pause Simulate Media Button, then Notify Cancel title "Sleep" Net effect is that I can ...

Have you tried CloudAround yet? It's a music app that lets you listen to everything on your device as well as sync/stream from a few cloud storage providers. This includes offline music you saved from Amazon MP3. The app scans your device for all music files and gives you a handy list of everything available. Once you login with the various cloud ...

There are several different VLC remote apps available which will let you control audio/video playback on your PC when you are connected to the same network. It's probably not for the un-technical, but it does feel very cool controlling your "stereo" from the other end of your apartment. You will generally need to: Install VLC on your PC turn on the web ...

I would try out Google Music. It will be the most native with your device, and gets relatively close to syncing, in theory. The first thing you will have to do is go to the Google Music Homepage and download the Music Manager tool. Once downloaded, you tell the Music Manager where your music is on your computer, and it uploads it all to the cloud! This ...
