What kind of music player do /g/ use for phones and other devices?
>>
for the car, I have an old Zune. I like tactile controls while driving

for my phone, I mostly use Google Play Music - not the subscription service, but the one where you upload your own mp3 collection to the google cloud for free
>>
op here I forgot to post my music player

>Phone
google play music but I kind of want to change it
>laptop
I just switched from itunes to foobar awhile ago
>>
spotify w/ premium because fuck it i don't have the time to manage disk drives full of pirated mp3s anymore. it's been 2 years since i've plugged my phone into a computer
>>
>>64286428
Same. Radio actually gives decent tips for new music
>>
>>64286315
Spotify on both PC and phone (cracked). I still have hundreds of GB of music in some old hard disk, but I exclusively stream nowadays.

Deezer but I'm getting pissed because it often stops playing when I'm driving. Like the connection drops for a second when changing antennas and the music stops and I have to manually reset it. And then when I do it goes back to the start instead of where it stopped at.

I'm only using it because it comes with my plan.

Retro music is the best looking player imo, but for functionality Poweramp seems to be the general consensus.

If I want to sample an album before I download it I use apple music. I tried Google play music but the app and UI was unbearable.

Currently, Spotify Free on the iphone, with pi-hole blocking all the ads.

I had a modded version of Spotify on Android which was good shit. Blocked everything in App, even when on data.

No, it isn't anon. Right now I am putting together a server with old socket 771 chips, ddr2 ram, and 4tb hard drives to store and stream my music across devices and with friends. The only way to fight back is to do it yourself anon. as long as there are those who do so /g/ will live on.

>supports Opus
They all support opus since android has supported it for a few versions now. The only reason they don't appear to is because the native media parser ignores the .opus file extension (although, Android 7 has supposedly fixed that problem already). I had to rename hundreds of tracks to .opus.ogg just for them to appear in vanilla music.
>>
>>64291815
>not using .ogg
>>
>>64290430
nobody gives a shit
>>
>>64291831
opus uses the ogg container natively. Xiph recommends the usage of .opus to distinguish them from vorbis in an ogg container. I only use .opus.ogg because of Android's retarded indexer
>>

Last I checked, google accounts don't need those. They only need your phone number and/or an alternative email account. I could be wrong and they changed the registration process to make those details mandatory.

Vanilla Music for my music collection.

Spotify for the playlists and finding out music, or albums I want to hear before downloading.

Newpipe/Itube for youtube music.

Apple Music for the same use as spotify, girlfriend got a free six months subscription from a campaign so I'm trying it out. Pretty nice.

>unironically using opus
>re-sampling all music to 48khz introducing artifacts

Opus was designed for VIOP and low bit-rate applications, using it for music is just stupid.
>>
>>64294302
Say what you want, I'll be over here enjoying my 96Kbps Opus transcodes
>>
>>64294742
Opus isn't transparent below 128kbs. So you're getting objectionally worse audio quality than AAC or a modern mp3 encode.
>>
>>64294801
Better quality than 96Kbps MP3 or AAC.
>>
Use Bluetooth with phone in the car. Google play music even though it's not great

On desktop it's either deadbeef in Linux or foobar is windows
>>
>>64294810
none of them are transparent below 128kbs so its not useful.

with lossy codecs you want the lowest bitrate thats transparent, opus was designed to do this with human voice, not music.


tldr you're using a voice codec for music and being a retard.
>>
>>64294914
>better quality than alternative formats
>not useful
Look man, I'm not a turbosperg. I just want my music. 96Kbps Opus is good enough and that's the bottom line.

>>64289616
If you're on Windows, Foobar has a great pattern based moving and renaming feature. If you describe what a pirated filename looks like for an album/folder, it can move around the files and rename them into whatever hierarchy you tell it to.
I have it set to Artist/Year - Album/TrackNo - TrackTitle.ext and it works really well.

Wish Spotify's interface wasn't so garbage.

Used to use Google Play when I was still back on Android, but my God it seems like Google completely forgot the shit even exists. It's a shame, because the radio stations are pretty good, and taking over Songify improved their "radio" playlists too, but Google clearly doesn't give a fuck about Google Play Music anymore, and became an even bigger clusterfuck with Youtube Music.

Now I just use Spotify and sometimes bounce between Spotify and Apple Music just for the proper offline and iOS integration.

Here's the quick rundown:
MPD is an open-source music server. It plays files, organizes playlists and maintains a music database.
Ncmpcpp is an MPD client and will provide you with an ncurses interface to interact with MPD. Lower volume, switch to shuffle, browse the database, etc.
Pretty simple stuff. Most of the time people have problems with the actual daemonization of MPD because it requires fiddling with privileges and user accounts.
For all practical purposes, on a single-user machine, you can set up and run MPD as your user (no need to fiddle with systemdick to run the daemon at boot). Just launch the mpd command and point it toward your .config (mpd ~/.config/mpd/mpd.conf).
Arch wiki has a pretty good tutorial on how to get up and running: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Music_Player_Daemon
Follow it step-by-step and don't stray from the tutorial unless you've conducted additional research and understand the configuration. Otherwise you'll end up with a mangled conf. Don't go copy and pasting shit from github and expect it to work.
MPD is really great, but it takes some getting used to. I use it to run a 24/7 radio station on my web server. Just puts my playlist in loop and we're good to go.
Hope this helps :)

>>64287641
They use "Fingerprinting" which is basically watermarks.

Phone I use BlackPlayer and desktop I use Clementine.
I have considered using google play music as it doesn't count towards my data so I could upload all my music but Google searching through it would probably have a field day with song titles.
