Capriccio for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch - Page 2

post #16 of 46

OK, I went for FLAC player, is easier than Capriccio, still that stupid iTunes interface, also some problems with tagging. I have J.River on the PC at home, various players on an iMac. Some albums got in with no problem, others were split apart, unlabeled, etc. I think it worked better when dragged into the window than when I used the "add" button, not sure. My files consist of a tremendous number of FLAC live concert file, the tagging of them is not consistent, generally consists of the file name, with a word document in some folders with more information. Not sure of the best way to do this, probably should try fixing tags on music I want to drag into FLAC player before I add them to the player's music. I am jailbroken, have some file managers, I'd think there must be a way utilizing these to add files/folders as well, but not knowledgeable enough to know how.

I went for flacplayer and have found it better and more organising too. A bit of a problem at first with it not putting files into folders, despite my neat tagging. Now seems fine, as I'm not doing confusing things like dragging in several albums by same artist at once! But maybe I'm being too kind to it - I'll try harsher tests later.

Best way to load music in your Capriccio is by using Filezilla FTP. 
I suppose that problem of upload (mentioned above) caused by lack of limitation of simultaneous FTP connections in Filezilla, though Capriccio server doesn't support more than one stream simultaneously, Filezilla try to copy all files at a same time. 
This can be solved by avoiding "Quickconnect" and adding Capriccio server via File->Site Manager in Filezilla. On "Transfer settings" tab of Capriccio server, simply put maximum number of connections = 1 and this solves problem. 
You can transfer anything, with directories, text/lyric and album graphics without any issues.

and Filezila doesn't support any http transfers. You should silmply put FTP IP (provided by Capriccio when you turn on WiFi transfer) and use port 21.

I've been using Capriccio for about 6-7 months now. Amazing sound quality, as you said. The new update, Version 2 is a great deal more polished, as far as aesthetic appeal goes. But i hate how the developer screwed with the intrinsically selectable frequencies on the 10-band EQ. It's all touch based; no more hold to input. For that reason, i've stayed with v1.3.5 on my iPod. Stabler too. V.2 has had immense problems with crashing...but even so, it's worth the frequent glitch....

 

And no ones' seemed to mention the ability to download EQ settings from other users??? Friggin awesome.

 

BY THE WAY...if anyone at Head-Fi still uses capriccio and owns a pair of S4 klipsch headphones, check out the EQ i made specifically for those 'phones. H!Fi =[Fully Evolved]=    Author: Audiophile......and I would love some feedback. :)

 

I've tested the EQ on a number of speaker setups and it's honestly produced a cleaner, more balanced sound than all the preset EQ's. I uploaded it over a month ago and it's still the top downloaded in the "Weekly Popular" list too, so it should be easy to find. Just make sure to keep/set sharing language to English, as each language has it's own index.

On version 2, you can input precise values for anything by tapping the name. So, say, if you want to adjust the Frequency, tap the word "Frequency", and a new dialog box will pop up for you to manually put in the precise value.

I think version 2 does a lot better at handling my iTunes library. It no longer crashes, and scanning on my iPhone 5 takes just a blink. It's awesome!

I have had my first Apple portable - Iphone5

 

I can't figure out how to put FLAC files on there when the Itunes on my PC won't bring in flac files to the library.

 

do I HAVE to use Itunes, ?? I really hate it.

You have to use iTunes if you want to add anything from your computer to your iPhone.

 

And if you have either FLAC player or Capriccio, you can add FLAC files following these steps:

 

1) Choose your phone in iTunes

2) Choose the "Applications" tab

3) Scroll down

4) Choose the application (either FLAC player or Capriccio)

5) Drag your FLAC files to the right hand window next to your application's name.

 

Capriccio is more versatile because it supports an equalizer and includes some good DSP effects. FLAC player has a more minimalist interface and is generally more straight-forward, but less versatile because you don't have that much control over your sound other than plugging your headphone in and listen.

Can anyone provide any guidance on how to transfer flac files into folders within Capriccio?

 

I managed to move a few albums worth of songs into my "Capriccio file system" using Bill P's methods, but all of the songs are simply sitting in the root folder.  Capriccio allows you to create subfolders through the app, but for the life of me, I can't seem to drag, cut/paste or otherwise transfer the songs into the folders I made.

I got it, go into the editing screen (icon shows a pencil) tick the songs you want to move , then click on the scissors icon, (btw all the icons are stupidly small and make this more difficult than it should be).
Then click on the media icon top left so you are leaving the editing screen, then open the folder you want , then click on the editing icon again , then click on the paste icon ( the one that shows a clipboard) and it should move the file.
