Simple to use music player for all those who prefer folder structure over tags. (You want your mix folder, not separated by artists, right?).

Home screen Widgets in separate download "MortPlayer Widgets"

Want to fix or add a translation? Go to

- Folder based navigation with simple folder change and auto progress to next folder
- Configurable main directory (e.g. all files below "/sdcard/music" or "/sdcard/audiobooks", individual for each player)
- Playlist support: Reads m3u, m3u8, pls, and asx; writes m3u and m3u8; allows adding files outside of main directory; easy access to playlists in main folder and subdirectories
- Ignores .nomedia (you set the directory, should be fine - right?)
- Reads ID3 tags itself (usually less buggy than Android's media library)
- Album art support: ID3 tags (jpg+png, types "other" and "front cover"), AlbumArt.jpg/png, cover.jpg/png, folder.jpg
- Plays all media types supported by core Android (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, M4A, 3GP, MIDI, Wave) and some device specific (WMA, FLAC), but only on devices which support them
- Easy folder/file selection by tapping cover resp. tag info
- Set the track order for each folder
- Flexible play, shuffle, and repeat modes (stop after track, repeat folder, shuffle files per folder, shuffle all files, ...)
- Supports headset buttons and OpenWatch
- Pause/continue on headset removal/plug and calls
- Sleep mode (stop playback, power off not allowed by Android system)
- Alarm clock
- Swipe gestures
- Selectable layouts (so far only default, car, and big cover) and themes
- Selectable backgrounds (theme color, own images, or wallpapers - even Live Wallpapers)
- Delete and send files
- Supports ScrobbleDroid and Simple Scrobbler (both interfaces also supported by many other scrobblers, like the official app)
- Supports equalizer, bass boost, and reverb on devices with Android 2.3
- and some more, just check the preferences...

Used permissions:
Phone state: Used to pause during a call. Otherwise it would only be muted by the system.
Wake lock: So the playback isn't stopped when you turn off the screen. Also for some optional features like disabling the auto screen off during playback.
Disable keyguard: In case you only want to use the app's lock screen. (And not return to the default one afterwards.)
Write/delete external storage: For some internal files in \.MortPlayer, e.g. cached folder covers from ID3 tags and track order lists.
Internet: Ads (AdMob)
Boot completed: To reschedule the alarm clock after boot.
Tasks: For "StopService" activity, to avoid the system returns to player afterwards

    Reminds me of old school WinAmp. Plays albums based on file structure

    Has many features and customization. And plays songs by folders.

    I've had this for a few years but since the recent update it stops and starts during songs and when you try to use the graphic equaliser it closes the app. What have you done to this app? Gonna have to find myself a new player.

    I have been using it for a very long time. I like all the features, especially the folder based play, timer, types of shuffle. But, I'm looking forward for some updates, better equalizer , to fix the glitches in updating the tags and the ability to automatically search for album art for EACH track. FYI, I have 12GB of songs in my phone :-D so it suits me well

    Fine for small libraries if you prefer to browser by file structures. Takes you straight to your music, unlike Google music with all its coy suggestions. If it added an overall library view with a by-file-structure option I would give it at least for stars.
