Rocket Music Player and Rocket Player Premium Unlocker will use a very small amount of your mobile data to download album art and use other features that require a connection. However, it does not require a mobile connection to play your content.
Rocket Player works with all Android devices. It has been downloaded by our millions of customers, and used with every device. If you have a problem we also have a dedicated support staff to help answer questions!
Here's how to fix it: 1. Uninstall Rocket Player free 2. Open Rocket Player Premium Unlocker 3. This will prompt you to download Rocket Player Free - follow the prompt to the store to download the free version 4. Reinstall Rocket Player free from the prompt 5. Now that both version are from the same store, Rocket Player should be unlocked If you're using an Android 4.4 device and your music has been migrated to the package folder (Android/data/com.jrtstudio.AnotherMusicPlayer/) back up your music before you do this.
To make Rocket Music Player the default music player, we need to disable your stock music player (Google Play Music). Starting in Android 4.1 disabling applications is allowed. To do this go to: "Settings - Applications - Downloaded - Google Music - Uninstall Updates", then select "Disable". You can re-enable the stock application at any time. Here's Google's tutorial on this.
It could be that the application is installed to the SD card and not the internal memory. This will not allow the widget to be displayed. To resolve this select "Menu - Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - All - Rocket Music Player" then select move to internal. Then try attaching the widget again.
Large notifications are added in 4.1 and later devices. To view the large notification, place two fingers on the sides of the notification and drag down. This motion is also used to remove the notification by dragging up.
When Rocket Music Player's audio focus is lost, it will default to "pause". You can change this temp focus action by going to "Settings - Audio - Audio Focus - Temp Focus Action - Duck". Duck will allow Rocket Music Player to continue playing, but duck the new audio so that you hear the notification.
Album art can be embedded in the file, or located in the album art.jpg file that comes when syncing with iSyncr, or can be selected from the device using an album art downloader. Rocket Music Player currently selects the art that your device's media scanner selects. If your desired album art is not displayed, long press on the album art, select "Manage Art" and change the art. You can also prefer embedded art by selecting the "Prefer ID3 Artwork" option in "Settings - Album Art".
Rocket Music Player supports the standard Android Supported Media formats. Rocket Player Premium Unlocker also supports: ALAC (Apple Lossless) files, APE (ape), Musepack (mpc), Free Lossless Audio Codec (flac), True Audio (tta), Waveform Audio File (wav), WavePack (wv) and Windows Media Audio Non-Lossless (wma).
The decibels that are used are (+ or -) 12. Rocket Music Player has a limiter feature which restricts the decibels used. This way Rocket Music Player does not blow speakers nor allow distortion. You can turn off the limiter by going to "Settings - Audio Settings - Limiter".
You can enable replay gain by going Rocket Player's "Menu - Settings - Audio Settings - Replay Gain". Note that your music must have replay gain information, Rocket Music Player will not calculate the values. We recommend using Foobar2000 to calculate replay gain values of your songs using a PC.
If you'd like to view how many songs you have in Rocket Music Player, go to the "Songs" tab and select a song to play. Next, go to the "Playlists" tab and select the "Now Playing" playlist. This will display how many song you have in Rocket Music Player.
Rocket Music Player will sort numerically then alphabetically all tabs. However within these tabs, there is some additional sorting: Artists - sorts by album year. Albums - sorts by track number Playlists - sorts by playlist edit (User assigned) Folders - sorts alphabetically by folder Podcasts - sorts alphabetically in tab, then by release number (if included in title) else, alphabetically. Genres - sorts alphabetically by album (See also: Can I change the way Rocket Music Player sorts?
Going to Rocket Music Player's "Settings - Scanner Settings - Android Manages Playlists" in Rocket Music Player will allow you to use the Android media database that is accessed by other applications. WARNING: This will not be as stable as Rocket Player's playlists. If the media database on your device becomes corrupted, the playlists will be deleted.
Live lists are playlists that are created from rules that will change based on the rules created. Live lists are similar to smart playlists. Rocket Player comes with live lists built in to give you some examples of what they can do.
To create a bookmark in Rocket Music Player, the file must be listed in the Podcast tab, and identified as a podcast. To create the bookmark, pause your podcast in Rocket Music Player. The next time the podcast is played the player will pickup your bookmark from where we paused. (See: How to bookmark non-podcasts)
Shuffle in Rocket Music Player means, randomize. e.g. Do not play a specific song/selection. When you select in Rocket Music Player, it means that you're playing a specific song/selection. The "shuffle" feature is turned off. Shuffle can be toggled on/off from the "Now Playing" screen.
Rocket Music Player works with Bluetooth and single button headphones. When using single button headphones, use the following as a guide: 1 button press - Pause/Play 2 button presses - Previous/ Start of song 3 button presses - Next song You can enable the "Two Clicks Next" option in the "Headset/Bluetooth" settings to change 2 button presses to be next song. You can also enable "Support Volume Controls" in the same setting to support volume up/down with your headset. Note: this setting will disable other headset controls.
We've tested everything on our end as best we can, but with so many different devices the configuration is too difficult for everyone's use case. Try the following to see how this works for you.
Go to "Menu - Settings - Bluetooth/Headset" in Rocket Player
Tick "Obey headset commands", as well as "High priority mode"
Also, select "Begin play on Bluetooth connect".
Go to "settings - sound - audio focus - ignore other apps" is turned off.
Turn on your last.fm Scrobbler setting in "Settings - Sound - Scrobbler".
Restart the device
Take your device and allow it Bluetooth connect with Rocket Player - do not open Rocket Player, just turn on your device, turn on your Bluetooth receiver.
If this doesn't resolve the AVRCP issue, please refer to our video on Bluetooth/headset settings and toggle these on/off. Additionally, toggling gapless playback on/off as well as changing the lockscreen (settings - operation - lockscreen) has been known to help. If you're using an Android 5.0 device, please try to turn off 5.0 Android wear support in "Settings - Operations".
