Whaaaat? That used to be my default audio player for local music 😠. I'm not going to upload my mp3 file collection to YouTube to be able to listen to them at work...

    Why do you have a mp3 collection? But Spotify is awesome dude, but no support for uploading music

    @rooter Most streaming services I tried so far offer a very poor collection of music I like to listen to. I'm not the mainstream music guy.

    @kraator well, you're not the first one missing this feature on this platform. Put on your devsocks and write an upload & play service. Implement Spotify Web into it and tadaaa :)

    @rooter Isn't there a local files option in the settings - granted @Kraator is using desktop client.

    🤔I'll check in the morning to confirm but I'm sure it's there.

    @C0D4 It was a few years ago at least

    @ScriptCoded honestly not sure, I haven't downloaded MP3s in a line time.

    Spotify covers enough for me, but I do miss the radio in Pandora.

    @C0D4 I just checked and couldn't find it so I doubt. Spotify is a bit minimal which makes it great.

    But, thanks to this research I found out I was not playing high quality so thanks a lot guys! 😁

    Can't you use like a UPNP server and VNC/MPV to keep all your movies and music streaming from the cloud to wherever you are?

    yah that sucks. spotify is awesome btw. and on a side note, they don't let you uninstall that shit now that is deprecated... that's quite bothersome

    It wouldn't be so bad if YouTube Music didn't suck and try to monetize every single thing you do.

    Save them to your phone and use a normal player?

    @justamuslimguy yh, my thought. Owncloud (or next loud) with webdav support. Mount the music on your pc like a drive. Or caddy with webdav -> caddy for life!

    Use plex, emby or jellyfish? Or even air sonic?

    @kraator Try TIDAL if you have good taste in music.

    @example-user if you have android you can side load deezer and enjoy beautiful music, but easier ;)

    @lopu its funny when someone calls a billion dollar company dumb. Yes its frustrating when they stop supporting an app you use but its business.

    @ScribeOfGoD Sorry, I’m not into random crashes and laggy interfaces. My phone is most important when I’m in a hurry.

    @hack what's frustrating is having to switch my YouTube account back from a brand account and lose all my comments and watched video knowledge because migrating your play music to YouTube music only works for non-brand accounts.... Now YouTube has no idea what videos I've watched, I get recommended hundreds of videos I've already seen, all the comments I ever made over the last ten years are gone. If google can't make that happen they're dumb, calling something dumb is an opinion, even if it is good business, doesn't mean it isn't dumb in the bigger picture of kindness and empathy and contributing to systemic diminishment of human potential

    I hope you are not surprised because it has been warned for a long long time

    There are hundreds if not thousands of alternative apps that can play local music files. Maybe choose one of those?

    It'll be easier to find a compatible media player than it will be to find a compatible spouse (OUCH!).

    @jespersh actually I was surprised, but if they really warned about the end of life of this app, they warned on channels I don't read. In my defense I'm not at all interested in Android development and I'm a pure user, so to speak.

    @electrineer @bols59 I'm aware that there are many alternatives, most of which are probably better than Google play music with regard to playing local music. Doesn't change the fact that the app still did what it was supposed to do and that I was surprised that it was discontinued.

    @stub sure I could, but should I?

    @rooter it is there in Spotify.

    - Click arrow next to name (top right) in desktop client
    - settings
    - local files (show local files)
    - add source (some local folder that doesn't contain DRM protected music)

    @C0D4 oh cool. I checked app only. I have a bunch of drives containing mp3 backups from a decade ago. Time for some serious `find -iname "*.mp3"` 😁 tnx

    @example-user except I've had the same phone for years and never had a problem, even still have the same battery that lasts all day. Note 9. But I've definitely seen family and friends return and even send iphones back 6 month into them. *bullet proof vest* lol

    @kraator it's a service. It's usual for services to shut down eventually

    @ScribeOfGoD note9 fanclub here as well. Did not expect I would use that pen so much. Especially for slicing screenshot and translate text from pictures

    @iiii what? It literally isn't, Facebook, Instagram, etc.. wtf services literally don't shut down
  • 0
    @lopu so? Since when few exceptions make a difference?

    @iiii ever seen the matrix? Caused the whole system to go down then saved it 😂

    @ScribeOfGoD not a valid argument
  • 0
    @iiii Neithers yours, that's the point

    @ScribeOfGoD that's false. There are much more services which were eventually shut down and much less of those that are still alive. It's statistically more probable for any given service to eventually cease operating.
