open terminal and type "flowplayer" (then enter)

What do you get?

brunkku's picture

First there are a couple of "normal" looking lines about getting locale "fi_FI" and about QWaylandEglClientBufferIntegration, but then comes the error:

[W] unknown 437 - file:///usr/share/flowplayer/qml/flowplayer.qml:437:5 Element is not creatable.

Mpris {          ^

Thanks for looking into this!!!

Actually, the new version 0.1-6 seems to launch just fine. Thanks!!!

After updating from 0.1-3 to 0.1-4 everything was ok until I added two albums. When I tried to update the collection all the music disappeared. Reinstalling the app and booting the phone did not help. Finally I removed 0.1-4 and installed 0.1-3. Now I can update the collection, but can not find new album covers - not even for the same bands I already have a couple of albums with cover pictures.

Just find a strange behaviour. When you go to tracks, choose your first song and then select "random", the 2nd song will always be the same and the 3rd too and so on... Juste like if playing "random" was in fact going into a predefined playlist... Any idea?

​Hello Cepi,

​thanks for your excellent work. After using whatsup I decided to install also your player. Just great. Just one question, how to get the internetradio feature also get to work with m3u url?

gri4994's picture

Why does it show only "Marina"?

mux's picture

Really awesome player; many thanks for keeping up the good work! ATM, only two things which could be  considered for a future release:

- Update Collection feature at the front page of Flow Player.

- Sort by Albums / Songs by Date modified or by folders.

Great player! Just one question though: Is a sort by folder feature planned? I'm in desperate need for that since there are large junks of untagged music in my library

alina's picture

Artists view was a must. Great! Still inverted landscape is missing. I need to add it to the QML file after every update.

Looks promising. I would like to try FlowPlayer but music on sdcard is not recognized. Please support files on sdcard. :)

Markkyboy's picture

All ofmy music is on my sdcard and is being read perfectly. My sdcard is formatted as fat.

inta's picture

Yeah, it was completely my fault. I missed the settings and was not aware, that I have to add folders. Maybe that should be mentioned at the albums view if no folders were added.

Viskari's picture

uninstall application , go to my profile, longpress cepiperez and choose refresh, install application again. worked for me. Btw nice work!

Markkyboy's picture

Thank you, Viskari, that worked a treat for me too! :)

a few are still not able to install or update to the latest version. An error about; Status dep.resolution failed. Nothing provides libmytaglib.so.1 needed by Flowplayer. 

How are we to get round this?


Ygorr's picture

Great application. Please add ability to remove file from music (mp3) file system through application.(for example: near "Edit metatags")

objectifnul's picture

What is supposed to provide "libmytaglib.so.1"? (without it, v0.1-2 couldn't be installed)

I bumped in to this issue - mp3 files in ~/Music/ folder is not getting listed by FlowPlayer. Please help .. TIA

Thanks , will do ..

Options to edit metadata and show lyrics are cool.

My music files have covers in their metadata; but the app doesn't show all of them, while Jolla Media app does.

Anyway, thanks a lot for porting this awsome app! Soon we will have a CepiPerez ecosystem on Jolla. ;)

CepiPerez's picture

Maybe that's because special chars. FlowPlayer uses same cache folder for album covers, but I need to find the way stock player manage some chars.

Mystery47's picture

Fantastic music player. Nicely showed tracks/albums. Again fabulous showing of talent...

feldbaum's picture

CepiPerez, you're a hero. Madness! This is 100% percent that what I'm waiting for 1 year. Runs without any error. The appearance is exactly what I expect.

Just update the database again, and it will be cleaned up. Strange, but it worked for me :)
