    Does anyone know what happened to the 4x2 music widget (the one with cover art) for the stock player?

    Mine never had one, I suggest using PowerAmp.

    Better, album art downloader, 6-8 band equalizer, lots of widgets.

    I know HTC phones have nice default widgets, but on this samsung.. I've yet to see them.

    This isn't for the stock player, but if you use Winamp, it has a 4x2 and a 4x1 music widget.

    TouchWiz doesn't have a widget for their stock music player. But I've never used the stock music player so it never affected me. But it is baffling -- how did that get overlooked?

    Mixzing is another media player that has an eq and widgets. You have to pay for the lockscreen widget, but if you have Widgetlocker, it doesn't matter.

    Can't you resize widgets on the screen? Because I thought that feature was added into Touchwiz 4.0 for all the widgets or at the very least, the included widgets.

    No, just some of the widgets are re-sizable.

    I'm guessing they passed on the widget because of how the music player is incorporated into Touchwiz. The drop-down bar and lockscreen have the equivalent of the widget, and I actually like how they incorporated this. You can access it much easier without having to go to your homescreen where the widget is.

    Thanks for all the suggestions on alternative players but I'm thinking about giving Google Music Beta and their Cloud service a serious try. Sucks that they remove the widget from the 3.0.1 player.

    The widget can be resized but it doesnt add any additional information just stretches the widget.

    I use G Music Bata also . I do like how the stock player has sound and EQ settings build in. wish it would work on GMB player. Or GMB would incorporate an EQ into their player. I like having my SD card space free. this was thers no need to go out and get a 32gb card... YET... lol

    The 4x2 widget with cover art? I have a 4x1 widget but not the 4x2.

    Samsung just neglected it - figuring that we would select a different APP. Not sure if this is just the USA market but it is NOT good! Has anyone found a better selection than reverting to an original phone model?
