Hi everyone! Having a problem with the app on my Samsung Note 3 phone 5.0 ...  I just updated "What's New" and now the app stops each time I try to load the app. I pulled the battery..didn't help! My other Samsung phone has no issue..any ideas? :coffee:

I solved the problem by moving the app to the external sd card...then I moved it back to device storage!!😃

That sounds like a handy little trick. Thx.

You are welcome Richard..Actually, my husband suggested I move the app to the sd card. I googled my problem and one solution was ro move the app. The screen goes black when I tap to go back to a publication, which is annoying..so I decided to try moving the app back to device..and it worked!!!😎

When playing the kingdom song lyrics video, it takes 6 to 10 secs before the lyrics appear on the video and we can start singing.

 

When is an appropriate time to start playing the video for the kingdom songs?

 

Is any convention adopted so that the soundbox brothers can start playing the song earlier to save a few seconds?

e.g. when chairman says "All rise and sing song..." then the lyrics video can be activated. This causes a problem if any further announcements are made by the chairman.

 

Or is the the usual practice to wait for a few seconds of silence before starting the lyrics video? (which means a longer wait for the audience)

In our Hall we start the song when the Brother who announces it is finished speaking - usually, when they step back from the mic. If there is any delay, it is not noticeable ... a "few seconds" (even 6 to 10) is NOT too long for the music with lyrics to begin.

 

This delay is highly influenced by the speed of the computer playing it.

We use KHAudio (we have MAC computer).  The song is cued up and waiting by the software, all I have to do is hit play.  The screen blanks and the visuals come up with the title screen of the song.  How long it takes after that is built into the video.  From "push Play" until the title shows is about 2-3 seconds, followed by a second or two for the title to fade out and the first line of lyrics to appear (and simultaneously the music audio).

I noticed a strange thing in the JW Library app this morning (iOS - iPhone):

 

When I clicked onto "media" then "audio", there are the usual folders for different types of songs, and then at the bottom is a gray folder called "Other".  

 

Inside, there are a few original songs that I had already downloaded in audio-only format.

 

Anyone else notice this?  Seems redundant to me, but perhaps it's a feature that will later be used to incorporate custom images/videos?

The folder has been there a while, but I’m sure the brothers are doing some work with the media, since many audio files have been updated this week, and some relegate to the Other folder.

What could be the reason for updating the audio files? Just categorizing them or re-recording them?
