This feature is now available (as of March 2015). Any music files in supported formats (MP3, M4A and WMA) you add to your OneDrive Music folder can be streamed through Xbox Music on your phone, PC, Xbox or the web player.

Yes and no. Yes there are apps in the store (like Metro Scrobbler) that will scrobble your play history after the fact (or while it's running in the background), there is no live scrobbling solution for Windows Phone 8. Personally I think Microsoft should integrate scrobbling into the Music hub, but that's just me.
If you download a song through XBox Music (without actually buying it), the app requires a data connection to validate your license to play the song. This is commonly referred to as Digital Rights Management, or DRM for short.
If you buy the song or album, you can move the file to any other device to play it, and can play it on the phone without having a ...
As you said yourself, an Xbox Music Pass is tied to a Microsoft account, not to any specific device. You can have up to 4 devices (including WP7 phones) associated with your Pass. So as far as I can see, your wife should be able to just sign in with her MS account on the new Lumia and keep enjoying her Xbox Music Pass on both phones.
This problem only occurs if you delete the songs via Windows Explorer i.e via a PC.
If you want to delete a song in Windows phone delete the song from the Xbox music player as it will delete the artist and albums files and also remove the song from Music player list. You can also use Files app by Microsoft.
You can delete the 0 byte ...
Lumia Play To ( Nokia Play to ) is easy to use.
1. open the app and select the media type you want to stream
2. search for the media and open it
3. now the app shows you the network you are connected to and the available and supported devices. It should appear your XBox under "Stream to" , but you have to use the same network for both devices ( windowsphone ...
You can use "Nokia Play To" app to stream to almost all devices that supports DLNA. As far as I know, Xbox supports DLNA. but I don't know how to connect it to the phone. But here is link that shows how to connect Xbox through DLNA.

This appears to have been fixed in the latest Xbox Music update, as I'm no longer seeing the duplicate album. The linked article mentions "Unexpected playlist/playlist item duplications appearing" as one of the bugs fixed in the update.
I want to say that I had the same problem a few months back (however, I think the app has been updated a few times since then, and now I'm also using the 8.1 preview), but if I remember correctly, I fixed this by deleting the local copy of the album from my phone, restarted my phone, and then re-downloaded the album.
Based on the screenshot, it looks like you have a "Various Artists" type album (specifically, a film soundtrack), where each track has a different artist.
The information that the Music app shows you is taken from embedded metadata called ID3 tags. Specifically, tracks are grouped together based on a field called "Album artist". In your case I think that ...
The most recent XBox Music update/WP8.1 developer OS update (I think this one is equivalent to the 8.1 release going out to the general public), has fixed both the problem in 8.0, and the new problem (very long delays on the next/previous buttons with huge play lists) in the initial 8.1 developer preview build from a few months ago. It now loads almost ...
The only feature I know that allows you to restrict your data usage in the Xbox Music app itself is to launch the app and choose the "Settings" menu from the bottom of the screen and then toggling off "Connect to streaming music" option.
I assume the app would still use small amounts of data when you launch it to pull the new music offered in the music ...
Launch Xbox Music, tap the More (“…”) button in the tiny and almost invisible app bar at the bottom right of the screen, and then choose Settings from the app bar menu that appears. In the following screen, Ensure that the setting “Connect to streaming music” is set to On.
The Recently Played list will show songs, albums, artists, and playlists that no longer exist. If you try to play (from Recently Played) the song that you deleted, it will not be able to play it.
EDIT: The Music app has been updated to allow you to remove items from Recently Played.
Currently the only way to get rid of the player controls is using an app like "Stop the music" (I'm not the developer and there are several other ones doing the same).

I contacted MS Support, and after trying several things that didn't work (resetting my password, disconnecting from my MS account and reconnecting, turning off and on cloud sync etc) I finally resolved the issue with a hard reset of the phone.
If the music has rights protection, then you probably didn't purchase those songs. However, if you still have a Zune pass subscription, you can download it to the new phone. In the media player, click the "..." on the bottom right of the screen and search for the song(s), once the song is selected - in a few seconds a "Download" option shows up.

Have you used the windows phone 8 sync tool? This can sync music playlists, video, ringtones and other files to and from you Windows 8 phone. There is a wizard on that site if you do not know which version to install.
Had a Twitter discussion with @windowsphonesupport and @thurott and both told me that you have to pay for Cloud Synching on Windows Phone. I guess Microsoft has every right to charge for any service they want, but it seems a bit illogical that you can cloud play or free on Windows 8, but it costs a fee on Windows Phone. The only difference in the cellular ...
Xbox Music is a cloud-based music service, so you don't physically connect to a PC to sync music. If you have an Xbox Music Pass, which requires a monthly fee, then you can stream or download music on your phone. If you don't have a pass, you can still buy music from the Xbox Music Store.
If you use Windows 8 and have an Xbox Music Pass, you can manage your ...
