    I thought that Internalz is not (yet) working on 2.1. Is this not true?

    You're correct. I thought you were running 1.4.5 since you were posting in the homebrew thread. I created a separate thread for the app catalog version. It's located in the Hedami developer forum (as a sticky thread).

    Hey Dan, this question is for the 1.4.5 beta app, but I assume it's the same for the 2.0 app as well. So, Up until now I've only had one playlist. I use it to filter which podcasts I want to listen to and order them in the way I want. I have this in iTunes and sync it via Salling Media Sync. It's worked great so far.

    Today I finally reached a point where it's going to be more useful to have multiple playlists, one per show. So I set it to sync 4 different playlists. They sync fine. The problem comes when I fave the different playlists so that I can access them quickly.

    It seems that when you fave something, it essentially becomes part of a master playlists of sorts. This makes sense for songs perhaps, but not for podcasts, at least not for me. For example, I have several different podcasts that I've made into playlists, and I might want to only listen to a bunch of one specific podcast one after the other. However, when I add the podcast in question as a fave, it simply adds it to all the other playlists there. IE I can't drill down to ONLY the tracks in that playlist so that I'm just seeing those and just playing through those tracks. Seems if I want to do it that way I need to go into the playlists section and THEN pick the one I want, so it adds an additional step. Am I missing something or is this just the functionality that only a very small percentage of people like myself would want?

    Secondly, I can't figure out how to remove items from my faves, watched a few videos to see if it was shown but didn't see it.

    Thanks!

    In the app catalog version, there's an option on the Preferences screen to treat each item in the Faves list as individual entities. If you set this option, tapping on an entry (like a playlist) will only load that entry.

    Just like in the Email app, you swipe the row from left to right to remove it. Also you can remove all entries in the Fave list by selecting the "Clear Faves List" option in the app menu. I don't remember if that option is available in the homebrew version, but it's definitely in the app catalog version.

    Ah, ok, thanks, that makes a lot of sense, now just to wait for 2.1 to come to my Pre 2! (don't have the time right now to fuss with putting 2.1 on my Sprint Pre - let alone doing the Frankenpre thing!)

    Too everyone who is running a Sprint Pre; the newest 2.1.0 Sprint meta-doctor script by Webos-Internals works flawlessly. (Currently it's still listed as a test script, but I'm sure that will change soon.) I've done it twice with 2 different profiles and it worked perfectly both times. The device reports that it's running 2.1.0 in the device info and on the Palm profile. This also gives you access to 2.0 specific apps, like Music Player Remix (in both the official feed and the web feed). The one small problem is that there is no support for the Amazon Mp3 App or the Sprint Nav app.

    Thanks for passing this info on. For those of you who use the new script and will be purchasing Music Player (Remix), I'd recommend doing it in the main app catalog (vs. the web feed). That way if you replace your phone or doctor, the app will automatically re-download when you restore your profile. With the web feed version, I'm pretty sure you'll have to manually download it again (although you wouldn't have to pay again).

    But if you don't care about that, either version will function in the same way. Other than their app ids, they're 100% identical.

    Is there anyway to just play music from a directory like /media/internals/music/jazz?

    if not, is there anyway to create a playlist file with a text editor?

    If the file(s) have properly written Genre Tag, then you can just select and play (however you want) that said genre. *This* is exactly what I use these music players for: repeating all tracks in a genre.

    That sounds like a good solution. How do i tag a directory full of songs like /media/internal/music/jazz and say give every file in that directory a "jazz" genre tag?

    I'll have to assume that you're using Windows, so, I don't really know. In Linux, it's a snap:

    Quote Originally Posted by bash
    for FILE in *.mp3 ; do id3tag -g8 "$FILE" ; done
    (genre "8" is "Jazz").

    A command line version can be easily done in Windows as well, but being that I don't *use* Windows (I only support it for money), I don't know any command line mp3 tagging apps. I'm sure stuff exists, and graphical ones too. This isn't exactly re-inventing the wheel.

    You can use an application like Media Monkey or MP3Tag to tag all the files in a particular folder.

    If you want to go down the playlist route, you can create M3U files in Windows Media Player, but you'll need to edit them in a text editor so the audio files are referenced by relative path instead of absolute path. So for instance, if you have an audio file called "song.mp3" in "/media/internals/music/jazz" and your M3U file resides in "/media/internal/music", it would be referenced in the M3U file as "./jazz/song.mp3".

    Personally though I'd use an application like Media Monkey or MP3Tag to properly tag all of your music (song, artist, album, genre, etc.) since most music apps rely on tag information to browse the music library.

    very good transition from 1.45 to 2.1, though I have a few questions. First is when the screen is locked, with the 3 bar play notifications it dosent seem to respond to taps while locked like it did on the 1.4.5 version? Also when I make a flylist some music files are doubled so when playing I sometimes have the same song playing twice, and I look in the flylist I made and it shows a few tracks I added on there twice back to back?

    Thanks,
    I think that i will go with the tagging route. I have all of my media on a linux (RHEL) box and would like to manage with a linux tool. any suggestions?

    So here's a dumb question. I'm looking for a way to access some of the mp3 tags/fields from within remix. Specifically I'd love to see the release date flag, since this is something that's sometimes relevant for me when listening to podcasts so I know if the one I'm listening to is "old news" or new enough to be of value. Any way I can do this?

    On Linux, I use kid3 (not "kid-3", "k-id3" ya know a KDE app), if I go a graphical route. (Does RH even have KDE available?) Most of my "work" in this area is scripted, so I don't use the GUI stuff too often, but, kid3 is a good one. You can do look ups with Amazon, Musicbrains, etc., as well.

    Please try again, because I just tried this and it works. This is using the app catalog version of the app which I assume you're using since you're on webOS 2.1.

    Do you have duplicate versions of the same song on your device? Because if you do, it will load all those songs when you start playing the flylist. This is due to the dynamic nature of flylists. Anything within a flylist is dynamic. So for instance, if you added an artist to the flylist with 10 songs on your device and later add 5 more songs from this artist, the flylist will automatically update. The same goes for duplicate songs.

    Technically I can't give details as to what's available via the media indexer since the 2.0 SDK is still under NDA. But I will say in a vague way that I would take advantage of as many tag attributes as was available.
