    Samsung music was the best I've ever had and now I have to use third-party once because I hate Google play and I don't have a Samsung anymore

    Hey Tek I know this is an old video but I have a questions about this player. I am trying to use it on an Atoto A6 Car media player with a USB drive. But there is no option to scan on the USB drive only SD card. If I use the explorer I can launch the audio file within Blackplayer but only that one song. Any idea or is it only limited to SD cards since it was designed for phones? Thanks

    It is so great that this is the only app I've paid for. Even if the free version is sufficient.

    Just switched over from ios to Android, and all the music players seemed reeeeally ugly and looked very cheap, and the google music app is just disgusting. Blackplayer seems like a very nice app with a great UI and everything i want. And the automatic album artwork is super neat. Thanks a lot for the vid

    Its funny you specifically mention Poweramp at the beginning. I just ran into problems recently with my phone (Galaxy S8) telling me that poweramp is using an obscene amount of data. Then yesterday, I downloaded the recent security update for Android, and poweramp would automatically shut off when the phone was locked, so I couldnt listen to music when it was locked. I found out that keeping the phone on not letting it lock would keep the player running, but the phone would get noticeably warmer. This was the free version on Poweramp, and buying the Pro version, for whatever reason has fixed it, however, im not sure how I feel about the Pro version.

    I feel my first question is answered with this video (If Blackplayer is highly recommended), so 2nd, is the problem listed above a problem with Poweramp, or some underlying problem ive only now discovered?

    I just got the Razer phone 2 and I need to move my music onto it and set up a music player. Would somebody who knows about this stuff advise whether it works better to copy over the music library (on a Windows laptop - I have one copy in iTunes and another copy in Sony's Media Go) via a USB cable and then install the player, or install the player first, for better results? In case it matters I've got my music library organized by genre, so that's the thing I care about preserving most. Thanks guys!

    Poweramp is the best music app equaliser.
    But it's UI is way too much complicated.
    So i shifted to other app.
    BlackEx seems nice.

    Went to install this for my mom today, only to find they decided to remove the free version for w/e reason. (This video was one of the only things I found even talking about the app, can't find any explanation anywhere). I've had the free one for a while & it's not even in my app library anymore (despite being currently installed) - which means I probably can't re-install it in the future (/install it on a future device). I didn't need any of the pay features of the EX version...looks like I'm going to find another free music player...shame.

    My old phone came with 2 music apps: google play and some purple one. I used the purple one
    My "new" phone (phoenix 4) has only google play
    no balance settings
    no speed controls
    not even a rewind or ff, just skip to the beginning or next track. it's awful. I didn't even mind not having gapless playback so much because I just edited songs together into one
    this should be a vast improvement

    This may be a stupid question but . . . I have 427GB of music - stored on a 512GB SD card (very well organized with correct metadata - by my personal preference of organization) and trying to find a player that will simply play said music without having to import or export or upload or download . . . Simply insert SD card, turn on the device, select "player", search music via artist, select album and then select song - basically iTunes for Android - Does Blackplayer play from SD card without having to upload songs into library and then having to download (album by album by album) for offline playback? Is there a way to customize so that artist "cover" or picture is the first album? I am using an Android OS phone with up to 2TB of SD card storage - making the phone solely just a mp3 player but uploading and downloading 427GB of music on Google's Play Music app is like herding cats! Any thoughts? I've tried Sony Walkmans but they don't store metadata and don't work well with large libraries - Hiby R3 and R6 both horrific UI and a Sony Xperia that could handle 512GB SD cards but Sony's music player was not customizable and difficult to navigate . . . At a loss here! HELP!

    Woa, glad to see another BlackPlayer user! You know, i've been using this player since like 2 years, and been wondering why of all the things, this player can't change the playlist's cover image? I've asked the dev, and they say it's on the tray button while opening the playlist but when i try it nothing's there. Anybody knows the solution?

      @Ordial my comment is that it doesn't ship with one..... downloading one is the issue, it should have a default one preinstalled

    and the feature we are all looking for a new music player for, blackplayer notifies you of duplicate tracks before adding to your playlist so you can choose to add the duplicate or not.
