Cloud integration works fine, except that my MacBook Air 13" (2014) and Nexus 5 won't connect via AirPlay. They share the same wireless network. I am using OS X 10.10.4 and premium CloudPlayer version.

Hello,

What Airplay device emulator are you using on your MacBook Pro?

We generally test on actual Airplay devices like the Apple TV, Airport Express, and Airplay receivers like the Yamaha RX-V779.

Other users have reported success with Kodi and a few other emulators though.

Also, if you use a Bonjour/ZeroConf browser on your N5, do you see the emulator as an RAOP entry?

Gave it another try after the last update. It resolved some of the previous issues. However, sometimes it skips a few seconds with local songs on external card just like it was sometimes on an old turntable. Done on purpose for nostalgia?

Hi there - first post here, so please bear with.

I am trying to import music from my Galaxy S4 to my laptop, so I can put it on my old iPod Nano for holiday.

Playlists have been imported fine, but all 637 songs have had an error of "Cannot access file".

They are stored on my memory card on the phone.

I've got 5.0.1 on my phone

Any help would be great

Hello,

I'm sorry but starting with Android 4.4 (KitKat), Google changed it so that apps only able to access a specific sandboxed directory. Because of this change, we can not import items that are on the SD card. The QA/Dev team is currently investigating possible workarounds.

Here's a help page with more information on this change imposed by Google.

https://www.doubletwist.com/help/question/what-are-the-changes-to-sd-card-support-in-android-44-kitkat/

As a workaround, you can use Windows File Explorer to manually copy the files from the SD card to your PC so you can import them into iTunes for syncing to your iPod.

Thanks,
Henry

Im on a motog 1st generation. Just updated to lolipoop, I have now duplicate files and can't delete anything just adding. Whenever I tried to reset again everything. Tried to erase within windows, still not working, I can't see the files in explorer but doubletwist managed to have like a hidden backup? Because the songs I deleted are still there. This is pretty annoying, how can I fix it?

Yup! Solved! Whenever I tried to delete from the download folder path that was on my phone the file was hidden. I needed to download another app which actually works with lollipop for opening the download folder through that app just to find out that allt he files I supposedly deleted weren't delete! Thanks again for your super fast response! ;) I'm happy so happy since your player is far better than the Google one! Even in lock screen!

How can I select only one specific Dropbox's catalog (with my mp3)?
I don't want to scan my entire Dropbox because there are also audiobooks and other audio files (which I don't want to listen to in CloudPlayer).

Hi,
Cloudplayer is really great to use. Do you consider adding other file access methods like for example file transfer protocols (ftp,Sftp,...) or Owncloud support ?

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback, we appreciate it.

We're looking to extending support to other media sources. A QA/Dev ticket has been created to keep track of user requests so I'll add your vote for these sources to it.

Thanks,

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.

I need a refund to my Google play balance immediately as I purchased your premium upgrade for the airplay feature and nothing at all is different and there is no option to use any of my airplay devices. No settings have been added and there's no option to revert purchases either

Henry Kwan's profile photo
 
Hello,

Which upgrade did you purchase?

The AirSync app from the Play Store? The MagicPlay app from the Play Store? Or the doubleTwist Pro upgrade from within our app?

If you purchased the apps from the Play Store, you will need to make sure that the apps have been installed. You can then stream to your Airplay devices.

Here's a help page with more information streaming and some troubleshooting steps.

Switched computers and I'd like to sync my music library (or at least part of it) on my samsung phone. Doubletwist sync pops up perfectly when I plug in my phone but when I click 'Music' it does not allow me to click the check box for 'sync music'. It only allows me to click the checkbox for 'import new music and playlists'.
Anyone know what the problem might be? I tried re-installing DoubleTwist Sync on the desktop and resetting my library database on the phone.
Thanks!

Hello +Ryan Mahoney,

Here's a 3rd party help page with more information on how to switch back to a lower scaling setting.

http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/hands-windows-81-desktop-display-scaling

Once the "Sync music" checkbox has been enabled, you can switch back to the previous scaling setting.

Thanks,
Henry

I'm a little annoyed because I downloaded double twist then bought air sync to talk to my Mac when I should have just upgraded to Double Twist pro.  Now I have to pay twice to get the same set of features which does not seem fair.

Hello +Duncan Say,

Yes, gapless playback is planned. We're going to implement it first on CloudPlayer and once it's been fully tested there, we'll port it to ClassicPlayer.

Thanks,

Please allow option to show songs in playlist grouped by artist so it's easy to shuffle from a certain song then continue with random tracks.

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask if CloudPlayer saves in cache songs while I listen to them as Play Music does. And also, is there any way to get the same service on PC or I have to search all the three different clouds to find my music?

Thanks.

Hello,

You can cache files for offline listening by selecting the "Keep Offline" option on an item (album, playlist, etc.).

Currently CloudPlayer is only available as an Android app but we've gotten some requests for a PC version so it's something that we're considering for the future.

Thanks,
Henry

before even starting with syncing music from mac to nexus I've encountered already two critical problems with doubletwist (3.2.0): 

1) not all playlists have been imported from iTunes (11.4)
2) doubletwist is super slow and the wheel/ball keeps spinning for minutes whenever i click on a playlist or select a command in the menu bar

Thank you for your help.

Hello Florian,

Thanks for the update. I don't have any playlists that start with a "?" but I'll give that a try.

Perhaps the application log file will have more information on what might be causing these issues.

Please reset the database one more time but during the launching of our sync application, please hold down SHIFT and open the application. A new menu, Debug, should now appear next to the Help menu.

Verify the same problem is occurring. Then select "Send Log to doubleTwist..." from the Debug menu and please include your email and the G+ URL in the "Additional Information:" field.

I have a Galaxy S5 and would like to know how to turn off the high-volume warning that pops up whenever I try to turn it up over some sort of threshold. I found a "solution" if one is using the default android music player but that doesn't seem to work on my device (Android 5). Any suggestions?

I want to delete a song I am listening to from the cloud. Is there a fast way to do this? I noticed that the menu of the song inside the playlist is diffrent from the on inside albums. The one inside playlist doesn't give option to delete the song but to remove it from playlist. And the menu in the player doesn't has this option.
