Re: repeated re-downloading on wifi sync LOG V3S78JCD6X

Has there been any editing of the files in MMA, including auto-lookup of Art or Lyrics? In that scenario I do expect this as MMA can't tag the files, so it relies on MMW to tag and re-sync so the files are up-to-date on your device. No I don't use those features, and for this sync no editing occurr...

songs re-downloading on wifi sync LOG FN4B162GU6

MMA Beta Version 1.3.4.048 Songs re-download upon wifi sync after playback in MMA. Several previous versions have had this issue and I've sent logs and commented on this here before. Does anyone else experience this? Why does it keep recurring? This is a really frustrating problem with basic functio...

Re: Full screen art display

Thanks, I suspected that but I can't see an obvious setting that might control it on the Galaxy S9... Any suggestions?

repeated re-downloading on wifi sync [#15635]

MMA 1.3.3.0843 keeps re-downloading songs that have already been synced to the device. I recently got a new Galaxy S9 phone and did an initial wifi sync with no data just to initialize. Then synced 1000's of songs with MMW with sd card directly in computer. When that was done I did an MMA wifi sync ...

Full screen art display

Album art used to display as the full screen (not just the widget) on the lock screen on my older phone (Galaxy S4). I just upgraded to Galaxy S9 and now the artwork only appears in the small widget and my normal lock screen image displays behind it. Does anyone know how to get back to the full scre...

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

Thanks again, that is all really helpful information. If you don't mind a couple more questions, when you say "analyze" are you referring to the playback setting in MMA? Also, can you give me an example of a few settings that would be considered "post processing"?

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

Hi, Lossy format means that whenever you re encode such format file (Convert included) quality of destination file is always little bit lower than original due the compression. Eg. Encoding FLAC -> MP3 -> FLAC will not give you same FLAC file but Degraded one. Same applies to MP3 300 -> MP3 300 if ...

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

That is an excellent breakdown, thanks! The greater compatibility of flac going forward as an archival format seems like one of the most convincing reasons. All the cd's I own are already ripped to flac so I'm thinking of future purchases when considering cd to flac vs mp3. Sometimes the cd's are ac...

Re: Copy or re-sync to new phone

I tried this a couple years ago when I had to get a new sd card and it didn't work for some reason so I guess I was curious if there were known steps to take. Sounds like it would still be an experiment though... If I were to try again, what do you think about the following steps: Install MMA on new...

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

OK, thanks this is helpful. So if I understand right, once you create the mp3, all the losses have already taken place and it is what it is no matter if you play it, tag it, move it, sync it, etc? I always keep the flac files in my library so I can convert to mp3 for mobile use and not have to worry...

Copy or re-sync to new phone

I'm going to be getting a new phone and plan to install MMA and store music on SD, same as with my current setup. Can I copy the music/playlist from my current card to the new one and have it recognized by MMA on the new device? Or do I need to re-sync/download everything to the new card? I'm hoping...

Re: When does an mp3 file "lose data"

Thanks for that info. How about in the scenario where I have an mp3 300 in MMW library and sync/convert to mp3 192 in MMA, is the original mp3 300 in the library degraded? Or if I change tags or album art, does that degrade files either in the library or MMA?

When does an mp3 file "lose data"

When I read that mp3's are "lossy", what does that really mean? I haven't really seen that described anywhere... Do they degrade slowly over time? Or when accessed/played? Or only when downsampled from a higher res file? One reason I want to understand is that I'm trying to decide if it's still wort...

Re: wifi sync not connecting debug log FNBN62RBHC

Thanks. I haven't changed any of those settings in months or longer and I've synced hundreds of times with no connection problems. It even worked last night after updating to the current beta version of MMA. Also for what its worth, I notice that MMA does allow me to scroll through the library using...
