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

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 ...

According to the Supported Media Formats page Opus is supported natively since Android 5.0, but only in the Matroska (.mkv) container. The Xiph.org wiki and IETF draft state that the mime-type for Ogg Opus files is audio/ogg. To test I encoded a Flac file with opusenc and changed the extension to .ogg before transferring the file to the device, which made ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 (...

Of course, it's trivial to transfer the non-DRM music. There are lots of apps on Google Play that effectively sync iTunes with Android in an iTunes-iOS way. Personally, I really like iSyncr used together with Rocket Player. It can also be done manually via Android File Transfer. The problem, however, comes with the DRM music. I've been in exactly the same ...

In Dropbox, simply add MP3s to favorites and they become available in a stock Google Play Music application (Tested in Android ICS)

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.

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

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 ...

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 ...

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.

If You want to hear music on your bluetooth device Your bluetooth device pairs perfectly with your android phone. It works only with calls, media still plays on your device speakers. BTMono is a great tool that suits your requirement. It will allow you to simply turn ON media streaming and you are good to go. Remember that it is free and you need to ...

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 ...

In the description of PlayerPro in Google Play this was mentioned: STEREO WIDENING effect (virtualizer) and a quick search on Wikipedia about what Stereo Widening is: Stereo widening Widening of the stereo image can be achieved by manipulating the relationship of the center signal M and the side signal S: M = (L + R)/2; S = (L - R)/2. A ...

AIMP play opus on Android.....

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.

This app could do the trick: Bluetooth Music Player Free You need to install it on both Android devices and pair them. Then put the tablet in ListenMUSIC over Blueetooth mode and the the phone in shareMUSIC over Bluetooth mode.

That option is removed in Lollipop. If you want to use other equalizer, you have to disable default equalizer from Settings -> Applications-> All -> MusicFx -> Disable. When you opens the equalizer from music player, it will open a chooser by showing other equalizers in it.

The behavior is determined by Play Music, which gets notified when another app requests audio focus (as per the documentation). Unless there is an option in Play Music's settings to disable this behavior, or perhaps a mute function in the "problem" app, there's nothing you can do about it. It's also possible for other apps to pause by sending an ...

There are many ways you can get the audio out. Through wire: Head phone jack - you clearly said it can deliver only two channel audio. USB - You can use an OTG adapter and plug in a 5 channel USB sound card and get the 5 channel audio out. USB Type C may have this support native. Wireless: Bluetooth - if the A2DP profile is supported (will be supported ...

Try Mono Bluetooth Router. Its free version has more feautures than BTMono.

I heart Radio and TuneIn Radio are apps that let you stream FM radio stations. You select the sort of station you like and listen to the music they play. I personally use them for listening to talk radio, but same difference.

Depending which country you're in Last.fm and Spotify are good options for free, streaming music.
