Hi, great audio player. There's one very annoying thing: if you tap on the first song of an album, flowplayer plays the whole album, allright, but after the last track, the whole album gets repeated forever - why?? I cannot stop this, searched for all settings that probably have affect on this.. Is this a bug or how do you turn off album repeat?

I'm not able to recognize mp3 tracks in flowplayer under sailfish 2.0.2.48

I too have showstopper problems with memory usage by this app. Admittedly I have a large music collection, but I only have a handful of cover images, the rest is just music. When I run "update collection" it reaches about 95% and then is backgrounded by the OS due to excessive memory usage. I have no such problems with the Jolla media player. What exactly are you storing in memory? Can you take a look into this, as I suspect there is some serious inefficiency at play... Thanks.

Hi Cepi,

is there a chance that you might implement the handling of multiple streams / tracks in one file, as described here: https://together.jolla.com/question/80022/mediaplayer-support-multiple-t...

As far as i've found out, chained streams (sequential multiplexing, some details here: https://xiph.org/vorbis/doc/oggstream.html ) should be supported by gstreamer1.0 (according to https://wiki.xiph.org/OggOpusImplementation#GStreamer ), so it SHOULD be just a UI extension?

Even if not: thanks for the very cool player :)

Hi! Posted an issue on the (empty) github repo about opus support.

My problem with FlowPlayer

Version 0.1-9 , playing songs in playlist in shuffled mode on, first song ends, second one starts, then ends and then instead of taking third, time countdown bar goes grey and second song starts playing again. I can next it but it repeats second if i do not. This is not happening when I turn Gapless playback off. The grey timer stuff sometimes happens even when this is turned on, but then it is not repeating the song anymore, but goes to next as needed. Seems the Gapless playback has some issues.

All I got is a white screen... :s Trying other version ....

it will be great

Gulandval's picture

Nice app and grate job. Thanks.

Any possibility to add L/R balance control?

minitreintje's picture

Is it possible to add an extra option in the sorting settings?
I would be great if you can sort your tracks based on time when you add them (the new tracks appears then first)

Just getting a WSOD (White Screen Of Death) at startup with the latest version for Sailfish 2.0.1.7.
Reverting to last known working version.

Best Player I have ever seen for Sailfish!

Features like Equalizer, coverflow and search cover for album makes this player unique.

Also the Lyric search function I like very much.

Keep it up!

Many thanks for the latest improvements on this great player! However one thing, the memory footprint becomes more and more a problem for me, at least on my phone, where I currently keep around 150 Albums (25GB) all with covers enabled. Checking with Lighthouse, the memory usage for Flowplayer is somewhere between 17% and 49%! I barely can keep running the application in the background, the Phone/OS is simply swapping too much and is getting sluggish.

Hey,

First of all, thank you very much for this.

I recently got a new jolla and just installed flowplayer, all songs show undefined undefined as the name and the songs wont play. It used to work on my old phone.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

oscar's picture

I have the same issue. Did you solve it?

CepiPerez's picture

Can you send me the file /home/nemo/config/cepiperez/flowplayer.db to cepiperez@gmail.com?
It's just songs info, no private data inside

romu70's picture

Exact same problem for me. I'll send you the file.

Loading album covers and artist pictures works generally fine. I still have problems with a few less known bands. Album covers are not found at all. I understand and accept if it isn't possible to find pictures of some obscure bands and their albums, but the irritating thing happens when I play a song: the app starts to load ramdom pictures of unknown people or even animals for artist photos. If I delete them in home/nemo/.cache/flowplayer folder, the same stupid pictures appear again when I start to play a song. I have also tried to rename a picture of my own with the name of a deleted picture and put it in the home/nemo/.cache/flowplayer folder, but the app ignores it and loads something from web instead. It would be nice to have a possibity to manually add your own pictures and use them when the app can not find anything relevant.

CepiPerez's picture

Those images are from last.fm api, I can't do anything about this.
There's an option when you open an album (pull down menu) to find images using google. I'll try to add this for artists too.

boebbele's picture

If I deinstall Jolla-Media, then I see in Flowplayer only a white screen. If I install Jolla-Media again it works. But I dont need Jolla-Media.... Can you do anything?

CepiPerez's picture

I'm using jolla-mediaplayer libraries for bluetooth. This library is closed, so I can't make my own one, at least for now. I'll try removing it (since this is for sending metadata) and see what happens. Wait for next update

lunatix's picture

Nice update! French translations have been lost :(. And there is still this issue concerning the "random" thing.

Keep up the good work. Thanks!!

boebbele's picture

Great update!!! Thank you!

s_mario's picture

Thanks for this nice player. But i have one Problem.

From 60 albums only 13 covers are shown in album view. I´ve stored the coverart as jpg-files in the directory of the mp3-files and in the mp3-files. They are showing by the native media app.
Are there limitations to the cover pictures for example dimension or size?

And it would be nice if we had the opportunity to clear album cover again.

 

boebbele's picture

Great Musicplayer!!! But the landscape mode works for me only if I turn my phone on the left side. If I turn it clockwise the landscapee mode does not. Why?

brunkku's picture

The white screen problem is back with 0.1-7. It is really funny since it worked right after I upgraded, but now it's down again.

This time the error message is:

[W] unknown: 497 - file:///usr/share/flowplayer/qml/flowplayer.qml:497:5 BluetoothMediaPlayer is not a type BluetootMediaPlayer {         ^

CepiPerez's picture

Did you update Sailfish to 1.1.9.28? If not, then please go back to previous version

brunkku's picture

Yeah, that's the thing to do. Jolla store let me down... I was able to reinstall mediaplayer, but I can't update it to the most recent level. There's an update available (probably 1.1.9.28 related features) but it won't install. I went back to Flowplayer 0.1-6 but now all music is missing... Stupid me, I should have let the Mediaplayer rest in peace!

tamhou's picture

sadly i had the same problem after happily deleting the jolla media player. reinstalling it solved the issue, but since i did this flowplayer can't find most of my music. rescanning passes way to fast and does not solve any problem. also redirecting to the directories via settings couldn't help...

any ideas?

 

thanks in advance...

 

*EDIT: was a problem with rights on my sd card... problem solved. but it seems you shouldn't erase the mediaplayer off jolla...
