  • Targeted Music Search

    a seriously helpful feature would be the ability to search specific locations only for music, the sd card for example. i have a vocabulary trainer in internal memory with over 8,000 small audio files, very annoying to have these included in a list of tracks!


    • Two way rating sync please!



      • Feature Request

        Feature Request:

        I am missing a sleep-timer function!

        Also, it would be nice to be able to edit the ID3-Tags of Songs and Albums.
        I have pruchased the Album Washer, but all Tags are either imported automatically or not even found.
        So I have no possibilty to change a songs name to my desire, if the Album Washer doesn't find the data I want.


        • play from network folders

          My music (40 Gb) is on network HD. Please make it possible to play these files without sync.


          • Playback speed

            Is there any plugin for that would allow changing playback speed to 1.10, 1.20, 1.30 times etc without changing the pitch?


            • UPnP/DLNA control functionality

              Here's my feature request:

              I've got a collection of 19.000+ Songs and I want to be able to control my Digital Media Renderer via Winamp (see DLNA on wikipedia). That includes handling of a playlist for the whole collection (all other tested UPnP apps didn't handle that very good).


              • Skins. Ideally, desktop skins that fit a certain set of criteria (ie: compact size, etc).


                • easier playlist maker

                  Hi all i really love winamp for android but adding songs to a playlist is a pain you should be able to use a check box or something for editing playlists like on the amazon cloud player really nice playlist adder, thanks


                  • 1) Make WiFi sync actually work. I got it to work once, but ever since then it flakes in and out, never connecting long enough to accomplish anything.
                    2) When playing an album, the songs should be played by track number, not alphabetically.


                    • Please add album year to the lists, or the option to enable it. I like to choose an artist and select an album by what year it came out.

                      From what I've seen, no other music apps have this feature either. Would be nice if Winamp was the first.


                      • Does Winamp (free or pro, or whatever) do FTP streaming? If not, would you consider adding this feature?


                        • FLAC doesn't work with .Cue
                          I will be visiting India this year to get a hair transplant in Mumbai.


                          • I wish the Android version supported avs plugins and shout cast TV or whatever winamp for PC played.


                            • it's unlikely you'll see AVS (or something like it) or SCTV supported as sadly you cannot expect like for like with the desktop when it comes to the android version. plus visualisers would kill the battery more so than already happens and SCTV requires codec support which pretty much isn't available natively on any platform (which means software decoding, lots more CPU usage and then the battery being used up even faster).

                              • First: LOVE Winamp. It's been my player for, like 15 years. Great job. Looking forward to seeing the Android version get better and better.

                                I filled out the survey, but I'll drop my suggestions here too, so everyone can marvel at them. =)

                                Four features:
                                1) Customizable keyboard shortcuts
                                2) Swipe-sensitive lock screen player
                                3) Toggle to keep playlist on screen after song selection (instead of switch to album art)
                                4) Queued songs take priority over Random.

                                In depth:
                                1)Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
                                Use case is specifically driving: I want to mount the device, press play, and never touch it again (in accordance to laws in Ontario). I want to then mount a mini Bluetooth keyboard to the steering wheel. Then with a single keystroke (by touch type, not taking eyes off road), control Winamp like I would a computer. Next, back, stop are the most important.

                                Note: customizable for sure, not just media keys. All mini keyboards I see require FN+key to access the media buttons, and a two-button press isn't conducive to safe driving.

                                2) Better lock-screen controls
                                This is more of "at the gym". Phone is on treadmill, in lock mode. It's nearly impossible to hit the tiny next button. Would like "swipe to switch tracks, double tap to stop" anywhere on the screen. (Well, except for the unlock button, I suppose). It would be amazing if this would work while the screen's off, but I don't know if that's even technically possible.

                                3) Play from playlist toggle option.
                                Whenever I have the song list up, I tap a song. The song list vanishes, and the stupid cover art comes up. I don't care about the cover art, I just was to keep seeing the playlist. Maybe I mistapped and played the wrong song. Maybe I want to tap around and listen to the start of a few songs. Maybe I want to browse the list while the current song plays. I really have absolutely no use case for the album art screen.

                                4) Queue like on desktop that takes priority over Random.
                                The #1 killer feature for me on Winamp desktop is the queue. I love to play on Random, but when I want a specific song, I find it and hit Q. My desired song plays next, then goes back to random. Would LOVE this feature on Winamp.
