    Dear community,

    I have a question about the Music Plaxer on the Zidoo UHD2000. I have edited and tagged my CD´s with mp3 tag. Now to the problem. If I now have my albums read in, some albums show wrong covers, which means covers from other CDs are taken. Is there a way to change it or is it a known bug. Are there alternatives? Please help.
    it's frustrating

    Thank you

    This is known. It works only correctly with embedded ID3v2 covers. Does not read folder/cover files but uses scraping results instead.
    I believe a full new Music Player is in the work. As Zidoo is moving into the Music Player market a lot of future development may be expected.
    The first to come is gapless playback.

    OK, thanks for that :)
    where can you find out if there is a new music player or when it will be released?

    When available you will find references here. Zidoo never mentions planned release dates to anybody just what they are working on.

    I understand that. But if Zidoo were good at saying what you are working on, I think many users would ask less what points to errors, or if there are discrepancies as here in the music player

    I hope the new Z series comes with this feature.

    :confused:

    The latest Z9X beta 6.0.19 firmware comes with music player v6.0.3. I've tried to extract it but I guess because the new models run Android 9 I couldn't get it to work on my Android 7.x based Z9S.

    The certification is different. :)

    No they don't. Gapless will be available on high end models only according Zidoo after asking them.
    If this is for HiFi models only then? The X20 used to be a High End model but without HiFi panel. Precisely that model has been withdrawn from marketing.

    then I'm curious when that comes for the UHD2000. Such an expensive device. I also hope if you will get a real cover ad. it's a bit ridiculous that it takes so long.

    So, as nearly all of my CDs have been ripped in flac format (which has no embedded IDs) I will not see any CD cover art in the Albums section of Music Player 6.0 (even though they do appear at the bottom of the screen when a track is being played)?
    Is that correct?
    Are Zidoo working on a better version?

    On the product page of the new Z9X is a picture of MP6 and it shows covers...

    I've just checked the MP5 on my Z9S and what should I say... the player don't even read all the infos from the tags.
    I've tested several albums. Artist and genre are missing.

    Update:
    I guess MP uses only the filename and not the tags. I don't use the artist in the filename. My folder structure looks like this:
    artist1
    album1
    01 - title.mp3
    02 - title.mp3
    album2
    01 - title.flac
    02 - title.flac
    artist2
    album1
    01 - title.mp3
    02 - title.mp3
    album2
    01 - title.flac
    02 - title.flac


    Without using the tags MP5 is pretty useless to me. I prefer Poweramp like on my mobile.

    I've just been playing with it and it does work :). I used "Album Art Downloader" to find and save the front cover of every album (from MusicBrainz) into the same folder as the tracks. When finished, do an UPDATE Music Player's source and they will be picked up. Perfect.

    HINT: Only download the FRONT cover of the albums, don't download the back cover.

    Latest: I now have album cover art showing on all of the albums :).

    Anyone know where the images of the artists are saved on the disk. A few are appearing but not all. Where are they being stored???

    UHD3000 HIFI 4K UHD

    1. it is written that the device shows 68 billion colors
    it converts color to 68 billion colors ?
    from 8 BIT/10BIT ?
    or shows 68 billion colors if there is a 12 BIT movie ?
    what converts the color to 12 BIT 68 billion colors ?..

    2. do you see YCbCr 4: 4: 4 color space? do you see a difference in movies between 4: 2: 0 ?

    3. how do you calibrate an image ?
