Listen to music via dropbox

New member | Level 1

I placed my music in dropbox. If I want to listen directly using dropbox, I can listen only to one song at a time I had to select an other song in a folder to listen again. Is there a possibility to listen to more songs or a complete CD?

My dropbox was full. I deleted a big amount of files. Can I continue to use dropbox and to save  other files ?

Did you ever solve this issue?  With only playing one song at a time?

There is no solution for this in Dropbox because it's not a media player. Find a media player application that has Dropbox functionality built-in to it.

Which media player application do you recommend.  It seems there are lots of problems with the few I just reviewed.

Thanks, Jim

I can't offer a recommendation as I don't use Dropbox to play media.

I can only recommend one player, and I've tried most of them. It's Cloud Player by Double Twist (for Android). It has it flaws too, but it works and looks very nice. It's not free though, but it's a one time cost.

If anyone has a recommendation for a similar player on iOS, I'd be grateful. Most players I've tried are more or less crap.

Hi jan m.17,

Thank you for reaching out on Community!

The Dropbox app is not designed to be a fully-featured media player, so if you're playing items from a folder of audio files, it will not progress automatically to the next file.

This is a terrible response.

People, many, are using dropbox to listen to music. It's a far better solution that iTunes. This dismissive response shows a lack of fundamental marketing intelligence.

  • Your customers want playlists and have been asking for years.
  • They ARE using your app to listen to music. You can pretend or insist they are not, but they are.
    (My primary reason for getting a paid account was that my LARGE music files made me grow beyond the basic account size. Had I not used you for music and audio I'd still be a free user.)
  • There are other (bad) solutions on the web to create playlists for dropbox because you have refused to. http://www.online-playlist.com

Why not embrace your customer feedback and make ANY solution to handle this.

It could be as simple as allowing users to make a text file with a specific extension that listed the files names they want in a list.

Or if you are feeling fancy, add an option under the multiple file select menu that said: "Play all" and supported a swipe right and left while playing to skip forward and back.

My point is STOP TELLING PEOPLE THEY DON"T WANT WHAT THEY WANT and please LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.

Thanks,

Greg
