Question Media Player w/Playlist backup

Looking for a (mp3)media player that can backup the playlists that are created and then can be restored when you wipe and install a new ROM.

I have tried PowerAmp, the stock Music Player, and Double Twist, but with no luck. Maybe I'm missing something.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

you can use the software or winamp. Before wiping you can do a nandroid or use titanium backup with backup App+data.

I use Titanium, but after restoring with Titanium, the playlists are empty. Haven't tried Winamp.

Google Music. Backs up everything to the cloud that I am aware of. It should bring back all your playlists. I don't use them. But I do know that all my songs are immediately brought back to working order. So there.

And you can access it on any computer that you log into with you Google account.

Thanks > > > >

I recommend this over others, because of it's cloud syncing features. If you have a large data plan, you can stream music you don't want wanna keep on your phone.

Yes google music keeps your playlists.

You can try the miui music player too, as it has playlists that I believe stay.

Use Titanium Backup and Back up: [Playlists] Media Storage 2.x.x Next time just restore the same thing(data only) and the playlists are there

Simple as that.

Hope i helped

Doin it wrong, I use Doubletwist to sync my itunes playlists, it puts the playlists on your internal, then use Poweramp as my main player which finds the playlists files with no problem.

When I flash a new rom I just select the "reset doubletwist" option or "rescan" option in poweramp. These option get the playlists back every time. (also in Poweramp you can select the music folder that poweramp searches for)

Thank-you all for your suggestions.

I found out that if you use doubletwist on your phone with the desktop version (Didn't know there was a desktop version!), you can sync playlists from Windows Media Player to PC doubletwist which will then sync them to your phone.

I already had the playlists on WMP, so it turned out to be a simple solution!

Double Twist does come in handy, my biggest complaint on android is not having itunes...problem solved with doubletwist phone+desktop
