Replay gain doesn't work on music app (Rocket Player)

Post by MRDA » Sat Oct 09, 2021 3:21 pm

I use Rocket Player to play music on my phone, but lately, I've noticed the replay gain function doesn't work with the tags from the EZ Audio Converter, though certain other players, which I'm not as keen on overall, process the tags effortlessly. After corresponding with the makers of Rocket Player, I've been told that the problem won't be addressed on their end due to lack of resources and insufficient request.

Do you use the same tags as Foobar, which the Rocket staff seem to swear by? If not, what's your source, and would you be able to make it amenable with Rocket's replay gain function? I'd rather not have to go through my folder to retag the RG on my tracks/albums if I can help it, especially not for paid programs/apps.

I use standard ReplayGain tags (of course). What audio format do you use ?

I use M4A. Is there some sort of problem with that combination?

No there is not. Standard ReplayGain tags are used.

I re-encoded and retagged my AAC library from FLAC with Foobar and added playlists of files to my phone. From what I can discern, the new files work with the ReplayGain on Oto and GoneMad players, though still not with Rocket.

By contrast, none of the files encoded and tagged with EZ worked with any Android player's RG.
