Folders API will not return folders that only contain another folders


Recommended Posts

Currently it appears folders API (either /folders or /folders/#/folders_and_files) only returns folders that contain music directly.


For example, for the following hierarchy:

  • A
    • B
      • C
        • [Music here]
      • D
        • [Music here]
    • E
      • [Music Here]


API will only return folders C, D and E, but not folders A or B.

I want to use API to retrieve full hierarchical structure of my music library. Is there another content URI I can try or is this just a limitation of the API? Could this be fixed?

This is with build 926. Thanks.

Additionally, even if I manage to get ID of such folder (for example from parent folder ID field), there does not appear to be a way to play it.


Attempting to play content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/folders/$folderId/folders_and_files where $folderId is the ID of such folder will not result in any playback (nothing happens when triggering this intent).
