So, I just started syncing to Android, and it's great...

Only question I have is, what players do you all use?

I'm looking for something that will read ratings, and then get ratings changes sync'd back to my MusicBee collection?

What players do you recommend?


THANKS!

I use GMMP.
Wifi transfer doesn't work for me, but I can get playcount and rating sync'd with no problem.

Two-way WiFi syncs with play counts and ratings can only be done with PowerAmp and GoneMad players.
If you search the 'portable devices' section of the forum (which is where I moved your question to) you'll find a good number of discussions.

Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.4 beta patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Thanks, I see support for syncing poweramp ratings, but I cannot get poweramp to read the ratings.  I guess sync only goes "Back" to music bee, but not "To" poweramp?  That's an odd situation.

Yes, I don't really do ratings on my phone, but I notice that PowerAmp does not recognize ratings set in Musicbee.  Don't know which tag it uses to set/read ratings. MB uses POPM.

How do you sync ratings and playcount without WiFi 2-way? I thought it's impossible?

My bad. I meant syncing from PC doesn't work for me, but reverse syncing does.
Wifi app does transfer the files from the PC to the device (Sony ZX500), but the device simply won't recognize them.
I have to do wired transfer to get the files into the device. I believe the issue is on the device's side.
