im using DT on my HTC M8. QUESTION: when i sync my playlists, the songs dont sync to my phone in the 'date added' order as it appears in my itunes playlist, which is newest to oldest. DT syncs the songs in the list oldest to newest, even though i manually changed the date added sorting in the DT desktop app playlist panels before syncing.

can anyone help me have the songs in my playlist appear from newest to oldest?? many thanks!!

Hello +Martin Cooper,

Are you using a Mac?

Which playlist are you syncing? Our application imports from iTunes using the XML file so as long as the XML file gets updated, all changes to a playlist made in iTunes should be properly imported.

One thing to note, however, is that the "Recently Added" smart playlist in our application is different from the "Recently Added" smart playlist in iTunes. So you may want to create a new "Added within Last 2 Weeks" smart playlist in iTunes with a different name if you want to use iTunes' recently added list instead.

Thanks,
Henry

Hi, 
Am using DoubleTwist on Android and Windows 10 desktop app with Windows Media Player. I've created some playlists on Media Player about 25, I see 4 of them in DoubleTwist desktop app all of which show only 2 or 4 songs when I hover over them but they all contain much more.
If I try to synch directly from Media Player the tracks are copied across but no playlists show.
Is Double Twist simply not compatible with Windows 10?

Hello,

Thanks for the report.

A few users have reported problems with Windows Media Player so it's possible that certain configurations of WMP are not full compatible. The QA/Dev team is currently investigating.

Most of our users are on iTunes so the bulk of our testing and validation are done with iTunes instead of WMP.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'll add your report to the QA/Dev ticket that's been opened for this issue.

Thanks,
Henry

Hi Henry,  do you have any feedback regarding when the update to fix the slow playback speed will be released.  I am running double twist on three devices now (S5, Tab3 and Z3 compact) all with the same problem when streaming to my NAD Viso 1 AP.   Regards.

Hello,

Thanks for the report.

This issue is caused by files that do not use the CD-standard 44.1kHz sampling rate.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/how-do-i-stream-to-apple-tv-2nd-or-3rd-generation-other-airplay-devices-from-my-android-device/#notes

A ticket has been opened for the QA/Dev team so they will investigate possible workarounds.

Thanks,
Henry

Hello +Katie Vaughn,

We got your log files from your Android device but unfortunately, all of the sync information is contained on your PC.

Please try a full reset of doubleTwist on your PC and Android device.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/how-to-fully-reset-doubletwist-on-android-and-pc/

Then after the reset, please try syncing that one playlist to your Android device again. If you are still seeing sync errors, please send us a debug package from your PC immediately after encountering the errors.

You can do this by holding down SHIFT while right-clicking on the doubleTwist icon in the System Tray and selecting "Send log files…".

Here's a short help page on how to send the debug package.

http://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/doubletwist-sync-debug-mode/#E

Please include "(Case 93147)" in the "Additional Information" section for reference. 

Thanks,
Henry

Hi. I've been using doubleTwist for years. It's a great product. But it's desktop applications have always had serious flaws. Some of this is obviously not doubleTwist's fault---it's inherent in the process of importing from iTunes xml files etc.. But as a user the experience is really quite painful. Especially on OS X. Constantly waiting for the application to load, waiting through crashes and rebuilding libraries is not pleasant.

While, importing music from iTunes is never going to be perfect, other companies like iSyncr have done well to streamline the process. They've even solved the problem of Mac-Android USB synching! For years, the loss of mass storage mode has meant everything had to be done either through Android Transfer or through WiFi. For a while, AirSync was great because it sidestepped the issue. But as no improvements have been made to the very buggy OS X desktop app---this has become even more of a bother.

Finally, I rarely see unqualified good reviews of doubleTwist in the media. And no one promotes it on Reddit. I'd hate for doubleTwist to get totally sidelined. I'm happy you have introduced the Cloud player and I'll try it, but you really need to scrap your Mac desktop application.

Thanks!  I look forward to playing around with it. But to be clear, my issue isn't with AirSync---it's the Mac client. The OS X desktop application hurts your business.
 
That being said, I'm happy with doubleTwist as a music player.

Hello +Ryan Smith,

As Monique mentioned, our app expects 44.1kHz sampling so if you are trying to stream something that is trying to save bandwidth by using a non-standard sampling rate (podcast episodes commonly use 22kHz), it can result in slow playing audio.

I thought I'd take a look at cloud player as I have doubleTwist and I installed it on my Moto G phone but it doesn't seem to see all the tracks on my albums.  The library is stored on a SD card and doubleTwist has no problem seeing them all.  I've tried the SD Scanner but I'm not sure I am doing it right as I can't work out the right path name.  Any help would be appreciated.  If Cloud Player works I may feel that this is the better upgrade route than doubleTwist pro.

Thanks

Hi there,

I have my itunes library and music folder stored on a separate hard drive, but Doubletwist seems to look for the default windows 7 location, even though iTunes knows that my music is stored somewhere else. Is there a way around this? The problem means that Double twist can't see any of my music.

Thanks for the help.

Hello,

We import information from iTunes using the XML file.

Please make sure that you do not have multiple iTunes XML files on your system as doubleTwist will use the iTunes XML file found at the default location. Multiple copies of the iTunes XML can cause problems.

If you are using iTunes 12.2, there is also now a new setting in iTunes Preferences, in the Advanced section, called "Share iTunes Library XML with other applications". Make sure that this is enabled. If it is enabled, try toggling it from on to off and then back to on to force the XML file to be created/updated.

Here is a step by step sync guide. The initial section has information on how to remove/rename iTunes XML files and reset the doubleTwist library database to force a new import. You should get a "Launching iTunes" dialog during the process. If you do not, that would mean that the incorrect XML file is still being used.

Hello!  Potential noob here with what could be a very stupid question.  I have moved to the UK from the US and don't want to lose my US itunes library.  Rather than getting an iphone here and switching countries(which would cause me to lose all my video and book content, and possibly music), or starting a new itunes account(same lack of content),  I am thinking of getting an android phone and using doubletwist to get my itunes library.    If I have a phone that is downloading UK apps, yet have a US itunes library, will that cause problems?

Hello,

As far as I am ware, there's no difference between US and UK versions of iTunes. Both will work equally well.

USB MTP syncing is only available on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Here is a quick start guide to USB syncing.

Here is a quick start guide to AirSync on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

If you are using Windows XP/Vista or a Mac, you will need to use AirSync.

Hi, is there anyway to modify the player's code to force the network connection to a wifi speaker to use DLNA instead of AirPlay.  I have several devices that can use both but some files won't play through AirPlay and when they come up in a playlist it freezes doubleTwist and resets the connection on the wifi speaker then doubleTwist shows the song playing but nothing comes out of the speaker.  When the wifi speaker shows the device connected via DLNA (DMC/DMR) doubleTwist plays everything including these problematic files.  I can find no common factor in the effected files that accounts for this problem - the encoding varies as does the format.  I've even tried converting them to different types (mp3, mp4, AAC...) and changing the encoder (iTunes, LAME) and nothing works.  I have had some success in re-importing from the CD into iTunes but I don't have the  CD's for much of my library.  Any thoughts?  Thank you.

Hello,

Thanks for the report. I'll ask the QA/Dev team to investigate.

At this time, there is no way to force DLNA over Airplay in our app as we haven't seen this issue before.

The next time that this occurs during Airplay, please send us logs from your device.

1. When this problem occurs, please immediately go into doubleTwist Settings.
2. Scroll down to select "Send Log Files" and tap "Continue".
3. Let us know that you've sending logs because of this G+ discussion in the description text and tap "Send Logs" to email the logs to us.

Thanks,
Henry

Paid for doubleTwist last night to move 13.7 gb (2718) songs from my itunes to my android. Set it on sync last night and woke up this morning expecting to have 2718 songs on my phone, annoyingly doubletwist refuses to sync about 800 songs onto my phone I've tried syncing all day but it refuses to work. The last 4 or so gb of music just refuses to sync I've tried it about ten times today.

Hello +Daniel Adejumo,

Thanks for the information.

Did you see any errors during the sync process?

Did you have transcoding disabled for your G3?

http://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/quickstart-for-mac-and-airsync/#disable

Please run the doubleTwist computer app in debug mode before syncing again. To do this, please hold down SHIFT and open the application. A new menu, Debug, should now appear next to the Help menu.

Perform another sync and if you still get the same sync problems, please select "Send Log to doubleTwist..." from the Debug menu and please include your email and this G+ URL in the "Additional Information:" field.

Hi! I recently updated to both Windows 10 and DoubleTwist Sync and my phone is no longer recognized by the desktop app. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times and nothing has helped. Is there a way to go back to the classic syncer to get this to work until this is resolved?

Hello,

You can sort the files by name. Each device should have a .sqlite3 file along with a few .xml file that has information on the sync plan and the sync results.

The modification dates should tell you which ones were last updated. You can remove any of the older profiles or if you want, just move them into temp folder. Then attach your device and see how many windows appear.

Thanks,
Henry

Hello +David Gamble,

Thanks for the report. As Monique mentioned, the Sonos isn't even suppose to appear in the streaming menu so this might be an Android bug. I'll ask the QA/Dev team to investigate further.

Which model of the HTC do you have? The M7? The M8?

What version of Android are you using? 5.1?

Which Sonos model are you using?

Just to double check, you don't have the "AllCast" app installed on your HTC One?

Thanks,
Henry

Hello +honyo ka,

Thanks for the information. I'll update the QA/Dev ticket.

From my testing, it appears that the issue may be what character set is defined in the ID3 tags. On my system, if the character set is set to Shift_JIS or windows-31j, iTunes and Mp3tag can display the foreign characters correctly so CloudPlayer will also display them correctly. But if the character set is to set to EUC-JP, iTunes and Mp3tag is not able to display the correct characters and CloudPlayer isn't able to either.

Thanks,
Henry
