just wondering what the "algorithm" is for random playback... is it totally reset after playback is paused/stopped or is there a guarantee that every song in the list will be played at least once?

Random number gen, played tracks get put in a list so they dont get repeated, that list gets reset when the music service is shut down

Posted a new beta. Its just bug fixes, but i MIGHT have resolved some of the random crashes that happen on occasion during track changes. I plan on doing one more minor update before beginning work on the next major update (which is most likely going to take a long time).

GMMP has been around for 5 years now and a large portion of the codebase was written back in the android 1.x - 2.x days when the android apis were not very mature and there was no compatibility library. I've done my best to update the code as new versions of android, but alas moving forward is going to be quite difficult with the current codebase / design. Fortunately gmmp's audioengine and data layer are pretty solid so they dont need much rework. So what I would like to do is do a large refactor / cleanup of most of gmmp's backend code (like intent receivers) and more importantly start working on a new UI from scratch. GMMP's current UI is really just a reskinned version of the original UI i wrote years ago and jamming more new features into that just isnt going to work very well. A new UI will allow me to design something that works well for all of GMMP's existing features and can work for a lot of the future planned features. Plus with the support library i should be able to make something that looks much better.

I dont plan on removing the existing UI.. just making something new alongside it. I know some people love the holo style UI so i would not want to take that away from them.

2.0.27 Beta (04/27/2016)
-Fixed writing disc no tag in m4a files
-Long artist names in the playlist view will now only show on a single line
-Minor improvement in the responsiveness of handling remote/media control commands
-Added code to prevent playback from auto resuming immediately after auto pausing from a disconnect
-Fixed some crashes related to destroying activities
-Fixed some crashes in the audioengine when changing tracks
-Fixed other various crashes
-Added Slovak and Hungarian translations
-Updated other translations

Thanks for the development/roadmap information :)

I was going to post a request for a widget that showed a 1 line of next track nane (in addition to all the current widget info/buttons) or even a larger widget with a scrollable queue.

However, I expect all feature requests will be put on hold with the refactor coming up.

I'd really appreciate it if you could consider such a widget in your rewrite/ UI redesign :).

I intend to use an app like 'Overlays' to overlay the GMMP widget on top of my SatNav app, so I have all the functionality I need onscreen at once :)

I do this (the widget trick) with the current GMMP widget, but it obv. doesn't have next track or a queue.

As always..big fan of GMMP Kyle!

Since upgrading to the Android 6 beta on my Oneplus 2, GMMP is skipping certain tracks. I thought it might be an OS problem, but another player had no problems with the same tracks.
I tried deleting and rescanning the database, to no avail. Any ideas?

They most likely do not use the opensl decoder libraries, but instead the stock mediaplayer. Totally different apis

I have set the option that the music should be paused when the headset is removed (all three check boxes: wired, Bluetooth and dock). It seems that this option is not reliable. Sometimes music stops correctly but sometimes it continues to play on the phone's speaker when I plug out the cable of my wired headset or when I power off my car radio to which the phone is connected via Bluetooth.

+John Welch might be multiple diff messages triggered at the same time thats causing 2 rapid play pauses. I can look into putting a delay before responding to a second play pause to prevent it from handling both

Everyone should be happy to know that I have finally started working on giving sdcard write/edit/delete access to Lollipop+ devices. It's planned for the next beta update

I randomly have the problem that the pop-up characters in the interpret list do not match the displayed part of the list. Sometimes only digits are shown and sometimes the wrong characters. I enclosed some screenshots. In the first two screenshots only the digits 1 to 11 were shown when scrolling from the first to the last interpret. In the other screenshots the shown characters are not in sync with the list. If I close and reopen gmmp it's OK again.

Changing sort order does recreate the indexer that picks the letters on the side

Wow so google+ decided to hang as i was making a pretty big post. I dont feel like writing all that again.. so i'll keep it short.

New beta, has new feature called album filtering that lets you filter out albums based on num of songs in an album and album length. It will filter the top level album view, and album shuffle/play random album

-Fixed bug where gmmp would be unable to pick a random album
-Tweaked scrobbler intents to play nicer with FloatingLyrics
-Added album filtering. Prefs -> Library -> Album Library -> Album Filtering. You can filter the album view and albums picked for album shuffle based on number of tracks and length of album
-Added more improvements to the scanner to prevent duplicates

-Fixed bug where widget would be invisible if no song was selected in now playing

The Notification/Invert Colors setting doesn't seem to be working on my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7 w/6.0.1.  The text inverts, but the background does not.  I end up with an empty white notification.  If I turn on album art, I can see it okay in the notification, but no text.

Spotify has a black background and it looks great on the lockscreen... Wish GMMP could look a bit different from usual white notification background...

When it will fix the black font on the dark notification bar, and the light font on a light??? Shell EMUI from Huawei, Lenovo Vibe, MIUI from Xiaomi, Samsung's TouchWiz. Very long time please. In other players all is displayed correctly. And again please do not come up with reasons and excuses, and to add support of tags in win1265-cyrillic that are not in Unicode! Beta 25, and advance this plan no.

-Added ability to save to sdcard on 5.0+ devices
-Updated translations
-Fixed fast scroll location on holo themes in android 5.0+

Disappointed to see so little progress made since the last time I used the app, frankly. Still no way to ignore prefixes in album view? Again: disappointing.

+George Vermeulen - You can have progress with the feature you wish by simply fixing the album names in your tags, make them the way you like by using a tag editor.

Looks like the scanner only looks for cover art in song 1 of an album?
You can clearly see song 3 having cover art.
