Just discovered F-Droid and I’m enjoying it, but of course, there are some difficulties and because of these difficulties I cannot go 100% F-Droid.
When I discovered there was no VLC on F-Droid, I thought maybe the other music players available could replace it, but I was wrong though.
One of the first problems I noticed was that almost all of these apps listed here en cannot scan and find my music collection on my SD card, even when I manually directed the app to my music folder, I couldn’t add music to the app.
The only app that did work with my music was Music Player , however I ran into a big issue with it. I tend to play music when I go to sleep, I would hook up my phone to external speakers, set the app to shuffle tracks and I’d listen to music til I fall asleep, but the problem is the app doesn’t go to the next track when the screen is locked, it only goes to the next track when I unlock the screen.
I discovered Yalp Store and installed VLC. Problem solved.
