Songs Keep Repeating Themselves.


Recommended Posts

I have hundreds of songs on my smartphone divided into categories, like country music, pop music, gospel music.

 

Up until now, I would have it on shuffle playback, just sit back and listen, only now the songs just keep repeating, this

means I have to keep pressing the forward button after the end of each song, and that just keeps me going on to the next

one instead of shuffling different songs all the time.

 

Is there anything I can do to stop the songs repeating themselves?

Are you using the music playing app that came installed in the phone or a third party one?

 

Check the settings on the smartphones music player? Maybe there's been an app update that has reset or lost some settings? If it's third-party, try uninstall and reinstall?

 

If that doesn't work, maybe try another player app?

There are plenty of good MP3 Player apps, look in Play Store or that other place if you have one of those phones!

Nothing to do with the app, It is a music downloader I paid for. Anything I do to try and correct it, I would not want to risk losing any of my songs. Should I just install another music player?

VLC is the best in my opinion, on both phones & PCs, for music or movies.

After a bit of a search I settled on Musicolet.

Not sure what's up with the OP without a bit of detail? Phone? App? etc. Maybe it's a favorite thing selected? If it's a third-party app uninstall and reinstall it, and rescan your libraries. If it's embedded then noodle through the settings.

Two posts asking for help and you haven't even said the name of the program you are using to play the music!

 

Here's an idea, try changing the settings from repeat to shuffle?

You may find this funny, and I don't blame you, but I cannot find the name, it does not say anywhere. I even looked through all the icons on Google Play without success.

I have tried looking at the settings, and cannot find anything about repeat, I have clicked on shuffle and it has no effect.

Perhaps upload a screenshot; someone may recognise the UI.

A screenshot of what exactly? The icon is not the same as the one when I originally downloaded and paid for.

The original one was I think navy blue in colour, this one is bluey green with a double musical note with the word "music" under it.

A screenshot of the main "page" it opens to. For example, other users of the app are likely to recognise this image as being from Plex:

Screenshot of that could also help someone recognise it.

I don't think it would do any good, there is no feature to stop the repeating, although there is one for shuffle.

Those three vertical dots, upper RH corner are your friend...Help & Info

 

The three horizontal lines Upper LH corner might yield some detail and settings.

 

No clue waht the app is, but identifying is a first step to figuring out how to use it.

You sure the songs are downloaded to your device? Can you browse to the files? If so, just download, install, and use another player, since you can't even find out the name of this one.

 

On Android I prefer AIMP, well-designed for playing music files, not bloated. It also streams radio stations with no need for additional plugin.

try a reset.Most devices can only shuffle in the same order unfortunately.

The answer to your first two questions are yes. I have already downloaded, installed and am using another player, that is VLC, but I cannot find the shuffle. Also I have a few playlists set up, and it would take some time to set up new playlists, it would involve hundreds  of songs.

The device I have will shuffle in different orders. There is nothing in the settings that will

allow a reset.

Post the pictures already requested if you still haven't remembered the name of the app, or go to Settings, Apps then select the icon for the one you use.  There may be an "App details" or simiar choice under that which tells you more.
