Walkout Song DJ music sources for Android users
« on: February 05, 2021, 08:01:26 am »
I wrote a very simple open source Android app to gather walkout songs from YouTube called 'Simple Song Collector'
You can download it from here:

https://github.com/UpAllNite-Software/simple-song-collector/releases/download/1.0.12/ssc-1.0.12.apk
(may need to long tap and select download link on newer Android devices)

You may need to change your Android settings when prompted to allow sideload installation from your browser and override safety warnings, but there are no ads, tracking, or malware included so it is safe to do so.

Just enter title and artist in the search, pick the best match, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs DJ will be able to see and use them in the 'My Music' selector.  If you need to browse for the song files, they will be in the "Downloads/SimpleSongFinder" folder of your Android file manager.  The Simple Song Finder also provides a choice of music or video search from the three dot button in the upper right.  Some songs seem to only be available in the video category.

Some other Android options include the free online video converter at amoyshare.com   https://www.amoyshare.com/video-to-mp3

Put in the song title and artist in their search bar and their web site will locate the youtube video for it and let you download as an mp3 music file. You can either download on a pc/laptop or directly on your Android.   They do limit you to 10 per day, but that works reasonably well in a couple days to get all you need for the app.

A little more expensive would be buying the songs individually from Amazon, download on a pc and copy to your device with usb cable.  You can also use the Amazon music app to purchase and download on your Android. They charge like 1.19 per song.

A little less expensive would be buying the songs individually from mp3million.com , m.mp3va.com or similar discount mp3 sites.  They charge around .10 per song and the files can be directly downloaded on your Android.

New update for the simple song extractor

https://github.com/UpAllNite-Software/simple-song-collector/releases/download/beta-1.0.6/ssc-beta-1.0.6.apk

Works around a recent problem where youtube changed the query result format so nothing was returned from music queries.

Getting an error right before our boys big game.  Error message returns says, "Could not get any stream.  See error variables to get further details."  This is occurring whether I try to play the song/video or try to download it.

Greatly improves download speed by using multiple simultaneous chunk download to work around server throttling

Is there a way to download songs from Amazon music to use with this app?

Unfortunately, Amazon does not provide any method for third party applications to access Amazon music subscription songs.  If you purchase songs individually from the Amazon website, you can download those on a pc or laptop and then transfer to your device using a usb or google drive.

Work around issue noticed 8/24/22 where the download icon would just spin and never download the file.  Likely related to another Youtube api change.

Simple song collector isn't appearing on the play store.  I deleted the version that wasn't working off of my phone now all I get a download option for is the apk file.  please help!

The song collector is not on the play store and never was.  The apk file is how you install it.  Download that with a browser and then install it.  Is there some part of that process that doesn't work for you?
