Hi all.

I'm using the Doubletwist podcast player on Android, and I can't figure out how to change the play order. 

I'm listening to a serialized podcast (Revolutions podcast), and when an episode finishes, rather than skip to the next episode, it goes backwards to the previous episode. To skip to the next episode, I have to then click the back/reverse button, which makes no sense.

Is it possible to have the DT podcast player auto-play in order from older to newer, rather than going the opposite direction?

Hi Henry,

I was listening in the podcast itself, not Play All Unlisted. But I'll give it a shot again and see if I screwed something up.

So you're saying that if I'm in the podcast, and I change the sort order to "Oldest first", then when I listen to an episode, it should auto-advance to the next unplayed episode, i.e. if I listen to a January 1st episode, then it should auto advance to January 7th, and then January 14th, and so on?

Thanks,

Marc

Hello, I used to use doubletwist to sync my music from my old laptop (a lenovo thinkpad) to my samsung g5. Recently bought a new laptop (another lenovo thinkpad), transferred my music from my old laptop to my new one, and now I cannot seem to sync music from my new laptop to my samsung g5 using doubletwist. A red boarder appears around the app when I open it on my desktop. What does this red boarder mean? Also, does this have anything to do with the fact that my old laptop ran on windows 7 and my new one runs on windows 10? Thanks!

Hello +Johnny Kohlbeck,

Thank you for the screenshots.

The first two appear appear to be from either a SD Card reader or some other USB device on the system. The third screen shot (the one labeled SM-G900V) appear to be the correct device.

Are you unable to click on the checkbox next to "Sync music"? If yes, are you using a very high resolution display with Windows scaling set to 200%?

There is currently a bug where the "Sync music" box is not selectable when scaling is set to 200%. Please trying switching to 125% or 100% scaling to select the "Sync music" option. Then you can switching back to 200% scaling so the screen elements are more readable.

Here's a 3rd party help page on how to change scaling in Windows.

http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/28310-dpi-scaling-size-change-displays-windows-8-1-a.html

The other issue that I noticed in the screenshot is that no playlists were imported from iTunes. Do you have any playlists in iTunes? If you do but our application isn't importing information about them, this could be due to a bug with iTunes 12.2.

Our application imports information from iTunes using the XML file and iTunes 12.2 has a bug where it doesn't update the XML file properly.

There is 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.

Thanks,
Henry

In iTunes i used playlist folders help organise my music, for e.g i have a "60's Music" folder with several playlists underneath, and a "70's Music" folder - again with playlists under. Can doubletwist retain the folder structure with sub-playlists - or will it flatten out all playlist to 1 level?

Thanks!

Hello +Steve Boorman,

At this time, iTunes playlist folders aren't supported. It's been requested a few times by users so it's something that we're looking into for the future roadmap.

Thanks,

Hello DoubleTwist,
I've got a problem when trying to sync to my PC (more info below). I can connect alright, but My music gets seen as other, so nearly all my music is already on my phone (SD card) but DT sees it as "other" so it coopies all 3373 tracks again, which takes for ever as you can immagine. This problem persists if I use AirSync, USB (MTP) or USB (MTP) with USB Debugging on!

Phone used: Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Operating System (phone): Android 5.0.1
Operating System of PC: Windows 10
DT Version: 2.6.2
Original Samsung Micro SD-Card and USB 2.0 Cable used.

Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Hi thanks for your reply! Yes I am indeed. What seems to have fixed the issue is just to sync it anyway but once I've got more music on my iTunes again and that problem still occurs I'll give your solution a try, thank you!

OK, problem solved. It turns out that Windows 10 wanted to download the drivers for the Samsung. Once I did that, DoubleTwist now works fine.

Hello +Marlon Gomes,

Yes, it should work if the "Storage:" switch is set to "Internal" and all of the songs are located on the internal storage of the Android device.

Thanks,

Did you know you can record radio streams from iTunes with doubleTwist AirPlay Recorder? It's easy and with minimal setup you'll be able to record your favorite radio stations from iTunes. It's like a digital tape recorder :)

If you haven't tried it yet, download it now for your Mac or PC.

Hi, I've just downloaded doubleTwist to both my pc (Windows 8.1) & Galaxy S5 and. following the doubleTwist manual, have synched over 1200 songs to my S5.  I can see the files on my device via Explorer, in the "doubleTwist\Files\Music" folder in MPEG4 format, but doubleTwist on my phone can't find them - or at least doesn't display them.  Have I missed a step or something, that allows doubleTwist to access these files?

Cheers and thanx in advance

Hello +Peter McCoy,

Thanks for the additional information.

Does our CloudPlayer app or Google Play Music see the files? Both of our apps (and Google Play Music) use the Android Media Scan service to help populate the library database so the same problem should exist on all three apps if the AMS is at fault.

One thing to check is if you have a ".nomedia" file in the Android folder on the SD card. If you do, that will prevent proper scanning of the folder. If it's there, please delete the ".nomedia" file. Then clearing the AMS and rescanning using SD Scanner should work properly.

Thanks,
Henry

Hello +Daniel Hawk,

Are you using iTunes 12.2? As Monique mentioned, iTunes 12.2 has some changes where they are not updating the XML file as often.

If toggling the "Share iTunes Library XML with other applications" option does not work, it may be that there are multiple copies of the iTunes XML file on your system.

Where is your iTunes library located? Is it in the standard Music folder location?

If not, our application may be importing information from the XML file in the default location instead of the actual location.

You can try this.

1. Please quit iTunes and the doubleTwist Sync application.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/guide-to-doubletwist-sync/#F

2. Search for all iTunes XML files on your system. The filename should be:

 iTunes Music Library.xml

or

iTunes Library.xml

3. Please rename or remove all copies found.

* NOTE: Do not touch the "iTunes Library.itl" file as this is the actual iTunes library database. *

4. After renaming/removing the XML file, please launch iTunes. Go into the Preferences -> Advanced section. Make sure that "Share iTunes Library XML with other applications" 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.

5. A new "iTunes Music Library.xml" file should now be created.

6. Launch the doubleTwist Sync application and all of your iTunes playlists should now be seen correctly.

Thanks,
Henry

I'm sorry but we don't currently support syncing from the iPad to Android as our sync applications are only for the PC and Mac.

I just installed DT and it seems to be working ok but it wont sync to my SD card.  It will only sync with phone built in memory.  In the DT app on my phone i chose it to use the SD card but the desktop software only finds the phone memory.

I have android phone and win 10.

Is there a fix for this?

Hello,

What device are you using? What version of Android?

Are you using USB or AirSync?

Try toggling the "Storage:" switch from SD card back to internal and then back to the SD card.

If this doesn't work, please try a full reset of doubleTwist on your device.

I recently upgraded to windows 10 and my doubletwist sync stopped working. All that happens when I click on the doubletwist icon is that my computer busy circle pops up next to my mouse pointer and then nothing. Tried to reinstall doubletwist sync, but still getting the same problem. The application is also not starting with windows. Please help.

Hello +Paul Kuhn and +Duncan Batty,

A few users have reported issues after upgrading to Windows 10. The problem appears to be that the upgrade was incomplete so some .NET package wasn't not properly upgrade. Since our app relies on .NET to function, this causes our app to crash.

You can verify if your PC is suffering from the same issue by looking at 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\

The log file is a text file so you can open using any text editor.

For PCs with this problem, you should see a log entry like this:

FATAL  : 08/10/2015 21:46:25: Crash
Thread Name:             Main Thread
Is Background Thread:    False
Thread Priority:         Normal
Thread Id:               1
Exception Type:          NHibernate.HibernateException
Exception Message:       Could not create the driver from NHibernate.Driver.SQLite20Driver.
Exception Source:        NHibernate

The QA/Dev team is investigating possible ways to fix this issue. One user reported that a full reset helped. If you would like to try this, here are the steps.

1. Uninstall the doubleTwist Sync application.

2. Delete the doubleTwist folder in your user directory.

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

3. Reboot PC.

4. Reinstall.

I'm using DoubleTwist on my S5 and Windows 8.  Here is my problem.  My iTunes library contains songs that are on two different hard drives.  DoubleTwist sync only seems to bring up the ones that are on the internal hard drive.  Is there any way to get it to detect all of my songs?

Also, is there a good way to sync audiobooks from iTunes? I brought one in but the tracks are all out of order even though they're numbered logically, so I'm having to make a playlist for each disc.

Thanks all.

Hello,

Our Sync application imports from iTunes using the XML file so as long as the songs are in the XML file, they should be indexed and available for syncing.

What version of iTunes are you using? The latest version of iTunes (12.2) has some changes where they are not updating the XML file as often.

There is now a new setting in iTunes Preferences, in the Advanced section, called "Share iTunes Library XML with other applications". If you experience any problems in the future, 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.

As for audio books, how are the tracked named/numbered? Our app should sort appropriately if all of the metadata information (track #, disc #, track name, etc.) is correct.

Thanks,
Henry
