Freeware MP3 player for your Java Phone

Note: Version 1.0.2 is the last version for Java Phones. You can also contact nouse [at] web.de to inquire about unofficial mods of this software.

If you still have a Java phone - this software is great for you (see download link below), and you can join hundreds of thousands who now can listen music on their phone. Unfortunately, FolderPlayer MAY NOT work on your particular phone, due to manufacturer's lack standards compliance and attempts to lock (cell phone operator's) customers.
It is hard to develop a software without knowing whether it will work on some model or not.

I highly encourage everybody to switch to new generation of Android phones, and if you enjoyed J2ME version of Folder Player, you're welcome to become a user of new generation of the player. Folder Player for Android

  • Lighweight and Fast
  • Plays music in selected (sub)folders recursively
  • Plays thousands of files
  • Supports custom fonts for mp3 tags
Today, with high capacity MicroSDHC cards, it is entirely possible to carry your complete music collection in your cell phone.
Unfortunately, some devices have poor built-in software, which doesn't allow you to listen to all songs you have, solving your carrier's problems (like attaching you to their services) instead of solving yours - enjoy your music library.

Download Folder Player 1.0.2 (December 2009)


Generic Version:

JAD: http://folderplayer.com/j2me/get/FolderPlayer.jad
JAR: http://folderplayer.com/j2me/get/FolderPlayer.jar

for cyrillic mp3 tags support

JAD: http://folderplayer.com/j2me/get/cyr/FolderPlayer.jad
JAR: http://folderplayer.com/j2me/get/cyr/FolderPlayer.jar

IMPORTANT: In order for the player to work, you need to grant access permissions to you phone's multimedia and file system. Unfortunately, different cellular carriers impose different limitation to unsigned applications. You may need to tweak your phone AND you need to set appropriate permissions for Folder Player, otherwise player wont work or you sight will be abused by annoying popups asking for such permissions.

Other problems:

Support for playlists, mp4?
Need this? Let me know.

If your phone displays underscores instead of extended ASCII letters in file names:
Unfortunately, this means that your phone requires your file names to be in unicode format. In this case I suggest to rename your files using english letters or use UTF8 for file names.
