Latest upgrade a step backwards 🙁

Update: Thank you for your response and for the latest upgrade which seems to have solved the second problem I identified where it wasn’t possible to scroll backwards through tracks in a playlist when in repeat mode. The first problem still remains though. There is no longer a way to set videos to repeat - either in the video tab or the playlist tab. If I make a playlist that includes both an audio file and a video file then I am able to select a repeat option. But when there are video files only, there is no option to set the file(s) to repeat.

Prior to the latest update it was possible to set video playback to repeat a file. This option seems to have disappeared with the new version. Please bring this feature back. Also, since the update when the repeat option is set for a group of audio files, it is no longer possible to scroll backwards through the list of tracks to an earlier track, only forwards to a future track. This is very frustrating. Prior to the latest update I would have rated this app 5 stars. Now I am unable to use it for some of the functions it was previously very useful for 🙁

Developer Response ,

Thanks a lot for your detailed feedback. The repeat button for video should be more visible in today's update and we will further optimize that in future updates. I'll check your report on previous tracks not showing on repeat - this is not how it is supposed to be.

Thanks for this

I uninstalled apple’s music app, it’s great to have this, thanks to the volunteers

There are a couple of pretty critical issues. Firstly, a way for the app to recognise files stored locally? Although I suspect apple is to blame for this. Even so, logging in to cloud service (onedrive in my case), there’s no easy way to create play lists other than downloading each song one at a time. I have hundreds! (Still like to buy and own my music 😁). Secondly, music folders only displays 48 songs! (Starting at S). It does seem to scroll through the rest when you scramble and skip to the next song though

Thanks

Playlist bug

This app is now visible in apple car play. Now, there is issue with ‘playlist’. It does not show all songs in ‘playlist’ of this app. It shows the very first song of the playlist and the rest just disappear. Result is: since only one song can be played from playlist, no automatic play sequence of rest songs happens. Before this app was optimised to “apple car play”, we could play sequence of songs of ‘playlist’ seamlessly and perfectly via ‘apple car play’ even the app itself was not showing as an app in ‘apple car play’ in my VW Tiguan. So, please fix this ‘playlist’ issue.
