Case in point >> Shuffle Player looks alright, isn't bloated with unnecessary features, all seems to be fine.

Then I play 30-40 mins. of music and the shit drains my battery from 50% to 18%, consistently for the past 3-4 days. The fuck.

Google Play Music seems a bit less aggressive on my Nexus 5 shitty battery, but it's fucked up on so many levels, I don't even wanna go there.

So, /g/ which functional (as a bonus - beautiful?) Android music player doesn't annihilate your phone's battery?
>>
First off what codec are your audio files in?
Second try Poweramp. It uses its own playback engine so it might use less, seeing as Shuffle uses the built in music playing API.
>>
orpheus, maybe timber in the future.

Thanks, anon, but I can't shelve $ for apps right now.

>>51450785
Never heard of it before, just installed it and will test in the next few days. Thanks!
>>
Winamp. Also, if you're playing something cpu-intensive like flac then yeah that's ont unheard of.
>>
i use rocket to fall asleep, but it's about 40% overnight, so i use timer ti kill it after 60 minutes.
>>
>>51450845
Nah, it's 320kbps mp3s, nothing too heavy. I'm listening to a great deal of podcasts via Player FM and 45 mins of local files brings me ~4-5% down.

>>51450870
Oh, man, Rocket, that shit was cool but it fucked up my local library for some reason. Haven't tried it in more than a year, do you have any issues with it performance-wise?
>>
JetAudio

>>51450901
Take a look at Winamp then. It's gapless, no trouble at all. Also shoutcast with over 50000 channels.Very light on the cpu. Not on the playstore and discontinued, but it's pretty much perfect. Wireless sync, recently added playlist, good screen-estate for album art, yada yada.

I've never had trouble with n7 player, but then again I have a Oneplus One so maybe it's just because I never run out of battery
>>
>>51451350
Lucky bastard.

nice album there m8

We're treading /mu/ territory here, but Arjen is fucking amazing. I had my laptop stolen recently, and only just managed to find a good rutracker torrent with *everything* he has ever done. Finally feeling back home.

I love his overarching sci-fi theme, tho. :>

not shuttle's problem then.

Even on my old phone (1500 mAh battery) it only drained about 10% per hour when playing 320kbps mp3.
>>
>>51452304
Thanks, anon, I'll try and tweak it then.
>>
>>51450404
Shuttle player went to shit with material design updates.
Walkman it's decent, but since you can't get all the "Bonus" to work on non-sony phone it's nothing extraordinary.
BlackMusic Player EX (iirc the name) it's quite good, useful for amoled devices since it included themes and don't kill your battery on background.
>>
>not part of the walkman on Sony device masterrace
>>
Blackplayer is the best

Look at Shuffle's memory usage and background services, man..
>>
>>51450901
no issues except for the overnight battery drain. i use outside player killer bc it's too much hassle to use builtin one
>>
I'm on Rocket Player, it's decent

Are there any other good ones that support Opus?
>>
I haven't had any issues with shuttle+ using up lots of battery. I'm using an older version but can't imagine itd be that big of a difference.
>>
>>51450404
>Ayreon
good taste faget
