The most elegant music app! Unfortunately none to update it.

olf's picture

The source code of FlowPlayer and FileCase for SailfishOS is available here (since April 2021):


So, if someone wants to continue its development, it is all there now!
(And CepiPerez has clearly stated in the past, that he does not have the time to proceed with developing and maintaining these apps.)

@CepiPerez the best music app I have ever used. You are a very good app developer who gave so much to this sailfish community. If only you could return to maintain/develop apps, it will be great. I am willing to donate for that. I hope more will do as well. Thanks for all your work.

@CepiPerez this app is so good to not update it. Is it gonna be possiblebthat someonebtake over it?

meesailorxa2's picture

Thank you. This is the best music app of all that I tested and used.

What a pity ! I find this app today, and I like it. Any hope ?

Radio does not work

This app is no longer supported.

Приложение хорошое, но не работает перемотка песен и эквалайзер вкючаеться при запуске, хотя в настройках он выключен приходиться включать и выключать его.

Great player! Small translation fix: "Cover no found" should be "cover not found".

Is there a way to mass-download images for all artists in the db? I find that the images are downloaded only when I first play a song from that artist (is this intended or a bug?).

Does this player support .cue metadata files? If not I suggest to add support for .cue files, it makes this player more great. ;)

Very good music player in native design. Problem: it does not play my .wma-files. Is there a special library, I have to install? (Fairphone2/SailfishOS

eisen's picture

radiostations on app screen would be nice, so you could open it directly from outside the app. greets

0.2-1 Couple Ideas/ Improvements:

1. long press artist tile to play or provide menu to play all artist songs.

2. Front menue (tiles of albums etc) should add tile or recently played accounting for wether it was a all album play, a play all songs of one artist play, or just having selected one song play and within that tile ability to shuffle those selections- randomely.

3. in artist tile view only say 5% of album covers schow, recommend to pick available and first artist associated album cover from the Albums DB pictures for that artist. So album pic yes, no- artist album = artist in artist list yes, no - select first image match assign to artist.

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

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 ....

Hi can you make a version for the jolla Tablet?
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
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!

tamhou's picture

seems not to work since last update.. i miss it, any ideas?


thanks in advance

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.

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.
