Default Lockscreen Music Widget

Hi guys, I hope some can help me resolve my problem. My unit is C6903, Android 4.4.2 .757. Whenever I play a music the music widget on lockscreen is not appearing and also I cannot add additional lockscreen widgets. Again these happen when I am playing a song. Whenever I'm not, I can add widgets on lockscreen. Thiese only started again when I updated to .757 FW but on .168 it's working. Enable widget option is ticked, already tried clearing the cache of the Walkamn Music Widget and Lockscreen on the settings but to no avail. Any response guys would be very much appreciated.

Screenshot for your reference. Take not that the I'm playing a song (the Walkman icon on the notification area).

I tried the Walkman app and noticed a bug as well, the cover doesn't always change when I skip to the next song..
Looks like Walkman has some bugs with this firmware, but it's not a problem for me since I use poweramp, maybe you should give it a try, in my opinion it's much better than Walkman

I prefer the Walkman app Jiyeo hehehe but I appreciate your reply and suggestion. And since we're talking abt the Walkman app, the Facebook Music Like's also gone. Already tried forced closing it but to no avail. Hope they will release the updaye for the Walkman after the Movies.

Anyone found a solution for this? I have the same problem since the .757 update, and both Walkman and Google Play Music are affected. Considering to root my phone to fix the problem (hopefully NUT's rom have this sortet out).

Are you using SmartKey app? I remember when I was using it I had the same problems with lockscreen widget... it wasn't appearing and I could't swipe clock widget as well.

I do not use the Smart key app, but I have tried to install and uninstall it. Didn't do anything. I can swipe the lockscreen widget (had to enable it in settings after the last update), but still no music widget.

The problem is also present with Netflix...

Found the problem! I had an app similar to Smart key (Headset control center https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...de.degausslabs ).

It does the same thing as Smart key, and when I uninstalled it everything works fine!
