On my SF Unplayer not work. Installing its ok, but when i tap on the play button, then in a moment player stop :/

Can You add sorting music?


Thak You!

PureTryOut's picture

Sadly I can not install this (using the Warehouse app on the Jolla Phone with Sailfish installed). Once pressing install, an error message pops up saying:


Transaction /1194_cbadebc

Status: repo-not-available

Extra details:

File './mw/armv7hl/libaudioresource-1.0.4-1.3.1armv7hl.rpm' not found on medium 'https://releases.jolla.com/releases/'


How can I fix this?

dfstorm's picture

Same here "libaudioresource-qt-so.2 :s

Bhavasagar's picture

Please try this .

sudo zypper in libresource-devel
sb2 -t SailfishOS-armv7hl -m sdk-install -R zypper in libaudioresource-devel
seike's picture

Same here, would like to test unplayer bot not able to install it :(

mika77's picture

Hi, will you send your app to Jolla Harbour ? It's a very nice music player :P

lispy's picture

Just saw the new Directory feature. Now, unplayer is perfect!!! Thanks for this great app. Best player I user in years on many platforms. It simply nails what I want from a musicplayer on my phone...

subeditor's picture

Yeah, that's what I missed a lot.

TMavica's picture

seem the headphone button not working with this player

equeim's picture

Will be fixed in the next version.

wickedsp1d3r's picture

Another request for Last.fm support, although I know it isn't on your list.

Viskari's picture

to be able to play files by directory would be great!

romu70's picture


Thanks for the app. I won't because, as many other players, it uses the Tracker database which doesn't work well enough. My message is more a question: would it be so difficult to make a version which gets the metadata and covers from the file system, and not from Tracker?



equeim's picture

I will not write custom filesystem scanner and database storage like in Flowplayer, because Tracker does it very well (and because it will take a lot of time). However Tracker database may be a problem if your music files don't contain metadata (e.g. about artist, album). Maybe I will add a feature to play files by directory in future.
Also I plan to add a feature to set custom cover image for album.

romu70's picture

I guess Tracker works well with MP3 which I don't use. With AAC, Tracker doesn't work at all. And FlowPlayer is same, it uses Tracker.


Thanks for your quick answer.

equeim's picture

Just tried: AAC encoded files in M4A container works without any issues (except for Tracker doesn't save cover image in ~/.cache/media-art). I'm using latest SailfishOS release (

romu70's picture

Yes of course, fortunately, you can play AAC files on SFOS. But you can't show any cover because Tracker doesn't support this feature. The only ways in that case is to show the covers you get online or on the local file system.

Hello.  This fails to install - it's looking for ./mw/armv7hl/libaudioresource-qt-2.0.0-1.1.6.armv7hl.rpm

Any ideas on how to resolve that?

lkdhf's picture

In terminal, try this


ssu re

version --dup


and then try installing this application again.

wheelybird's picture

Hi.  I'm afraid that doesn't work. :(

equeim's picture

What version of Sailfish OS do you use? Post output of "pkcon search name audioresource"

alemandaris's picture

Hi, I wanted to try your player but I got the same error message. The whole message is:

I have verison and here is wanted output from my device:

Actually why is it using gstreamer 0.10 instead of 1.0?

equeim's picture

Full Gstreamer 1.0 support was added to Sailfish OS only in 1.1.9 version, so I build app with 0.10. Also because of this issue (high CPU usage with Gstreamer 1.0).

lkdhf's picture

Thanks, hopefully the bug will be solved soon.

gri4994's picture

Very nice!

If there will be equalizer, lyrics, tag editing and last.fm support, it will be the best player for Sailfish!

Also I would add a little gradient on background of icon


equeim's picture


>> lyrics
>> last.fm
I don't plan to add these features.

>> equalizer
>> tag editing
Maybe in future versions.

velox's picture

Looks very nice, I also like the playlists plus simplicity.
I have added support for unplayer in slumber (sleep timer) just now so they'd work well together. Check it out if you like to and keep up the good work!

edit: One request, though: A long-press menu on Albums as a shortcut for enqueuing and adding to Playlist like on the Songs would be brilliant.

lkdhf's picture

Many, many thanks for this, it's exactly the kind of media player I've been waiting for, with a queue/playlist feature that works very similar to Rockbox. As far as I'm concerned this is already the best media player available for Sailfish.
