I'm having a bit of trouble with getting CloudPlayer working well with my Dropbox. I have a lot of music on my Dropbox (some 30gb), so I'd expect the scan to take a while, but so far it's only adding content outside of my actual Music folder, and it's getting stuck even then (on 12/4846). Which leads into my second question...

Is there any way to set folders to ignore while scanning? I have a lot of things like production samples that I don't want to have included in the scan. Is this possible?

Thank you! I feel like I shouldn't be complaining because the unlock code was free, but I'd love to have this working still :)

That's amazing, thank you! Is the release tomorrow going to be in beta? Or is the large-library import in beta now, going stable tomorrow?

Are there any ways to expand the 4x4 widget to 5x5?  If not is it something that yall would consider adding in the future?

Downloaded and installed doubletwist (Galaxy S5), Purchased pro license in order to get Airplay (I want to stream music to my Apple TV and I want to access my library on NAS). 

Finally worked out how to play to Apple TV (play a track, bring up the window, click the cast icon). Not intuitive though, maybe I'll get used to it.

What I can't figure out is how to get to my NAS library ? I've enabled UPNP / DLNA.

Hello +Chris Johnson,

What operating system are you using? Windows 10?

Are you using USB or AirSync?

USB MTP syncing is only available on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

Here is a quick start guide to USB syncing.

http://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/quick-start-guide-to-doubletwist-sync-usb-syncing/

Here is a quick start guide to AirSync on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10.

http://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/quick-start-guide-to-doubletwist-sync-airsync-syncing-play-store/

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

Here are some quickstart guides to AirSync on XP/Vista and Mac.

Hi. In DT, when listening to podcasts, my cars steering wheel controls (fwd,back) cause DT to skip to next/previous show, instead of skipping fwd/backward within the same show. This is usually expected behavior for music, but for podcasts it's quite inconvenient. Would you consider re-mapping this? Or, perhaps making it a setting option for podcasts (and only for podcast - don't want that setting to affect music playback).

My backup podcast player (pocket casts) behaves as described/requested above, but i would prefer to use DT if it could just fix this behavior.

Thx!

AirPlayRecorder
Hi.
Is there someway to control file naming when using AirPlayRecorder? Right now it saves files as "Artist - Title". I would like it to save files as "Album Track - Title".

Doubletwist doesn't seen to support the SD card on my phone. What do I do so I can AirSync my music to my SD card?

Hello +Hundashter,

What device are you using? What version of Android?

Currently our ClassicPlayer app doesn't support the SD card on Android 6 Marshmallow devices when it's formatted as "Portable".

We'll be adding support in the next big update, when we port the playback engine (and other features) from CloudPlayer back to ClassicPlayer.

As a workaround, you can format the SD card as "Internal" if you don't need to swap out SD cards.

Here's a help page with more information.

Has anyone else had issues with windows 10? Upgraded from 8-10 installed double twist and the program will not load at all. Seems to be some kind of issue with upgrade from windows 8-10. Any solutions would be welcome

Hello +Rob Michie,

Did you send us the log file from your PC?

We've had a few reports of problems with Windows 10 upgrades. The upgraded PCs appear to be missing some needed SQL drivers, which is causing problems for our application. This problem doesn't happen with fresh installs of Windows 10 so it's not a Window 10 issue but a Windows 10 upgrade issue.

Thanks,
Henry

If song is playing while I delete the song, please make next song auto-play. This is similar to thumbs-downing a Pandora track.

Is this your only response to feedback for the "classic" player? Download the Cloud Player? If so I'll just shut up and not bother you anymore because the Cloud Player is an infinitely worse interface.

I'm having troubles with the doubletwist player on my Droid Turbo 2. On many of my songs when I touch to play them it goes to the now playing screen but doesn't play. It is just stuck at 0:00. All the songs are in mp3 format. I can go into the play music app, the default app that was on the phone, and the same songs that get stuck in DT play just fine. I used the Windows 7 DT to sync my itunes to the phone. Any ideas for a fix?

Hello +Nicholas Kosen,

Did you update the version of Android on your device?

As Monique mentioned, you can try CloudPlayer to see if the same problem occurs.

You can also try a library reset in ClassicPlayer.

Hello Twisters!

It's Internet Security Day so Google is celebrating by adding 2GB of storage to your Google Drive account if you complete their Security Checkup for your Google account.

To get the extra 2GB, just login and verify your security settings.

Been using Doubletwist/AirSync for many years. All of a sudden Doubletwist wont open on my PC (running W10). I tried uninstall/reinstall - did not work. Any ideas??

Hello +Charles Ferrara,

Did you recently upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8?

We've had some reports that in some cases, the Windows 10 upgrade isn't complete and leaves out some needed components. This is only for users who upgrade from Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10. A clean/fresh Windows 10 installation always includes the needed components.

If the Sync application was already running OK on your Windows 10 system but suddenly stopped working, please try a library reset.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/how-to-reset-the-database-in-doubletwist-sync/

If the library reset doesn't help, please send us a copy of the application log located here:

C:\Users\[YOUR_USERNAME]\Appdata\Local\doubletwist Corporation\doubleTwist Desktop\Log\

For a shortcut to the "doubleTwist Corporation" directory, please paste this into a File Explorer window (this will also work on systems that do not have the view hidden folders option enabled). Then navigate into "doubleTwist Desktop" and then into "Log".

%LOCALAPPDATA%\DOUBLE~1\

Hello +Denise Brooks,

Thanks for the new set of log files. This time there were some additional entries that provided more information.

02-10 12:17:09.420 24174 24202 E DtMediaProvider: importPlaylists failed to lookup mediaId for file: /storage/extSdCard/music/led zeppelin/physical graffiti (remastered)/06 kashmir.m4a

Those errors indicate some type of problem when our app tried to restore from .m3u playlist files.

What you may want to do is try a full reset of doubleTwist on your GS5 and PC. Then after the reset, perform another sync.

Using the app on a Sony Z5 doesn't let me change songs or skip when my phone is locked. Normally there is the option like when you drag the screen down but when locked the option is gone, unlike other apps? Is there a setting I've missed or is this not possible to do when my phone is locked?

Can doubletwist work with one plus two and mac?

Henry Kwan's profile photo
 
Hello +Shwe Yee Win,

Recent Android devices only have USB MTP mode, which the Mac does not recognize without additional software. In addition, doubleTwist was not designed for USB MTP as it expects USB Mass Storage (MSC) mode.

We are working on additional syncing solutions for the Mac but this will take some time.

In the meantime, you can use AirSync to sync with USB MTP only devices.

Here is a quick start guide to AirSync on the Mac:

Doubletwist sync can't find library which is located on Nas storage. I take it you guys take the .itl file and parse it but if we change that location from the itunes default location it make doubletwist sync useless. Allow people with more advance setup to select the library file.

Hello +Dustin Taggart,

Our application imports from iTunes using the XML file so as long as iTunes is configured to update the XML file, our application should import from iTunes correctly.
