      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  3. I don't know how to word this out so bare with me. I think some of my music are still playing after it's finish time mark, for example, one song is time 3:48, but it carries on for another 10-20 when it actually finishes. I've tried other music apps in the meantime and the music just finishes on the correct allocated to of the song which I actually want it to do. I don't know if it's on my end or Poweramp's, I just wanna know what it is. I'll use the other music app for now until there's another update for Poweramp or something. Thanks in advance Current build: alpha-build-703-uni (Full Version)

  5. Hey. I have a problem with art images. Hope someone here can enlighten me. If I long-press while playing a song I download album art just fine. However these same images don't appear in the album list no matter what I've tried. Got quite a bunch. Any clues would be appreciated.
  6. If you want my additional input for moving Poweramp many steps forward and what I'd really love to have (and what I just cannot plead enough that you add feature-wise), here it is: Tagging is a love / hate thing for me in this and previous versions. Album art is nice to have, but I'd rather it be deprecated and left in code graveyard if it is going to continue to be so limited as to how it can be changed....for instance, I rarely use my SYSTEM MEMORY the store ANYTHING media related. So I wish to add or change album art....ummm, if it's not in my main device storage (root/sdcard/....or storage/emulated/0/...) it's NOT possible. I see that Poweramp struggled with the new storage access permissions for external microSD that were imposed by Google with KITKAT...but I thought the issue had been resolved....then as of last night I couldn't "see" any other storage in my device...no external microsd .....definitely no USB-OTG access. Then there's the issue of my keeping MASSIVE amounts of my music library (lossless .FLAC mostly) stored on my media server at home and it is synced to my Dropbox giving me access to it anywhere, anytime, as long as there is a data connection. But I have to juggle moving or "staging" bunches of audio files to my 256GB EXTERNAL micro sd rather than wipe out system storage, and then I cannot play from there using Poweramp. I can sorta get around it by marking as "make available offline" within Dropbox certain audio files I want available to me....but this isn't a REAL SOLUTION or viable workaround b/c that only downloads the content to the device storage under 'Android/data/DropboxapknameI cannotrecall/etc etc etc' ....which can then be added to the list of folders Poweramp should read and/or scan for audio files & *bam* they can be played. But again, I DO NOT, DO NOT DO NOT want all my audio in device storage so I need Poweramp to handle cloud storage access and to tackle the storage access permission thing once and for all to really make my audio experience AWESOME & HASSLE FREE. Google Music....oh please PLEASE hear my plea...I'm begging: Give me the ability to use the Poweramp AUDIO ENGINE and WORLD CLASS DSP, LIMITER AND EQ, etc when I'm wishing to access my GOOGLE MUSIC..... I detest how lifeless and underwhelming my music sounds when played (direct or streamed) via GOOGLE MUSIC in-GUI crap Player that takes my joy in life and suffocates it slowly and makes my ears and heart begin to ache for Poweramp.....oh I can't tell you how many times a song I have on device AND in G drive starts playing through Google Music and my immediate reaction is to reach over and check my car's SYNC Audio settings...then no.....wait, it's gotta be a wrong preset or DVC LIMIT turned off in Poweramp--so I grab my phone out of habit and double tap.. .....expecting to see Poweramp GUI on screen..... I drop an F bomb and stomp the floorboard, then either toss my phone in the cup holder or passenger seat in total disgust BECAUSE GOOGLE MUSIC GUI is up and I'm immediately and painfully aware of the f*ck¡Ng problem.....THE SONG ISN'T PLAYING THROUGH Poweramp! **DAMNIT** or, I REALLY wanna hear the song the way it's SUPPOSED TO SOUND and I have to quit Google Music, open Poweramp and pull up the song .....and PLAY.......mmmmm. I gotta have a fix... I admit I've become totally and completely smitten and enamored with Poweramp....I'm addicted, I'm dependent and I suck at using why other player. I suck at giving up my favorite audio quality, my optimized DSP settings for different car audio systems, as well as the perfect presets I've painstakingly tweaked to perfection for play through my home stereo, desktop PC and 3 different types of headphones I use based on my environment or planned activity. That's where I'm at with Poweramp beta testing.... If I jumped the gun and posted to WRONG THREAD ...you may admonish etc...but it seemed to fit here so I gave it a go. "alpha-build-703-play" ^^Where are we going from here ^^
  7. This is basically a cut and paste from my RATING / REVIEW of Poweramp in Playstore (towards the end)....but I realized after posting that you (the developer) aren't likely to read or respond to comments posted to the BETA version of Poweramp given that it required subscribing to be a tester to access it within Playstore, and there weren't other comments posted at the time. I have been a beta tester for Microsoft, Techsmith, Symantec, Zone Labs (now CA), Cakewalk and many Android apps, including Dropbox, MX player Pro, KeePass2, and have been actively supporting development & testing on ROMs, framework/libs, codecs, rooting & flashing etc, via XDA, TWRP, and the now defunct Cyanogenmod over the course of the last 19ish yrs. So.....I *should* have thought about it with my BETA TESTING cap on and realized my BEST resource and hope for reaching you and receiving feedback is......THE FORUM! DUH. (we all have those occasional moments we're not proud of....🙄) Today, when I checked Playstore for last date that any Poweramp update was released in the BETA channel, I admit I initially got very annoyed seeing last update was 2016. Insult to injury....my review STILL had no Dev reply! Grrrrr. 🤔I thought damnit....I'm not beta testing for a dev who seems to have just ceased updating for a year and half! Tossed my phone on the bed in disgust and walked off. Ahem. 😏 Then....an hour later it hits....WTF?! I'm such a dumbass for cussing & muttering about the Dev quitting on is just when Poweramp was TRULY shaping up to be EPIC & untouchable among Android audio players, but I NEVER THOUGHT, JUST GO TO THE FORUM BRENDON!v [voice in head] um....hello....that's how you've typically done this shit for how long now??? *** the truly embarrassing moment came when I tried registering for the forum & suddenly realized, I HAVE a Poweramp Forum entry in Keepass2 and there it was: my USER ID AND PASSWORD ...setup 8/18/2016. Wow, REALLY? ***😯 First off : THANK YOU for not giving up on further development of Poweramp and for building what is truly the most stable, user-friendly, feature-rich, visually pleasing and exquisite sounding audio player for Android. Period. I've used it so many years now that I don't have any other audio player on any of my phones....even the stock players are just disabled (crystallized) upon completion of rooting, flashing & optimizing of ROM on a new device....next Titanium Backup Pro, Poweramp, MX player Pro, SD MAID PRO and app forth. Second: without further commentary, here's my review from Playstore and I hope it opens further discussion from you and forum members! Thanks again. *** With 30 years combined experience in the pro audio industry & highly specialized, hydro acoustically intensive field of Naval Sonar before that, I have a deep appreciation for audiophile quality hardware and the latest technological advances in software based digital audio processing. I am as impressed today as a beta (alpha) tester as I was nearly 8 yrs ago upon discovering the very first public release of Poweramp for Android. Your level of dedication and the obvious hard work invested in Poweramp development is evident throughout and it remains superior in every way to other AOSP audio players I've tried since 2009 (back in HTC G1 days). I am devoted to Poweramp and my daily personal audio enjoyment....whether over BT audio to SYNC in my car, or over top notch, wired, in-ear monitors using the amazing DACs on my HTC 10, I am never disappointed. Is a parametric EQ ever in the works by chance?? I'd like far greater tonal control and ability to shape the response curves and overall sound field for various listening environments, i.e., my car vs playback over surround home theater, or for overcoming particularly pronounced & unwanted bumps or cuts in certain frequencies on a couple of different pairs of headphones (wired & BT). I like the graphic EQ but find it to be ineffective at providing the fine tuning I desire, primarily due to the limited number of bands. I especially wish there were a greater number of divisions among bands covering the upper mid to high frequency range. Even if you were only to develop a graphic EQ with 4-6 more bands to provide more granular control, I'd consider that a HUGE WIN and would appreciate the effort. I know I'm not the first person to be frustrated by the limits imposed by having only 1, 2, 4, 8 & finally 16kHz bands at the upper end of the spectrum.

  10. Your approach to get the thumbfile reference is ok. but all you have at this point is the filename. The next step would be to read the .jpg bitsream // First decode with inJustDecodeBounds=true to check dimensions final BitmapFactory.Options options = new BitmapFactory.Options(); options.inJustDecodeBounds = true; BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picture, options); // Calculate inSampleSize options.inSampleSize = calculateInSampleSize(options, reqWidth, reqHeight); // Decode bitmap with inSampleSize set options.inJustDecodeBounds = false; return BitmapFactory.decodeFile(picture, options); } public static int calculateInSampleSize( BitmapFactory.Options options, int reqWidth, int reqHeight) { // Raw height and width of image final int height = options.outHeight; final int width = options.outWidth; int inSampleSize = 1; if (height > reqHeight || width > reqWidth) { final int halfHeight = height / 2; final int halfWidth = width / 2; // Calculate the largest inSampleSize value that is a power of 2 and keeps both // height and width larger than the requested height and width. while ((halfHeight / inSampleSize) >= reqHeight && (halfWidth / inSampleSize) >= reqWidth) { inSampleSize *= 2; } } return inSampleSize; } Look on Stackoverflow as there are plenty of examples.. The way I do it is to get the equivalent android albumid and retrieve it using the Mediastore, then get its url album_id = c.getLong(c.getColumnIndex(MediaStore.Audio.Albums._ID)); @Override public Bitmap loadItem(Long id) { Uri sArtworkUri = Uri.parse("content://media/external/audio/albumart"); Uri imageUri = Uri.withAppendedPath(sArtworkUri, String.valueOf(id)); Resources res = mContext.getResources(); int width = res.getDimensionPixelSize(R.dimen.image_width); int height = res.getDimensionPixelSize(R.dimen.image_height); Bitmap bitmap = null; try { bitmap = decodeSampledBitmapFromResource(imageUri, width, height); } catch (Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); } if (bitmap != null) { mMemCache.put(id, bitmap); }else { /* Uri path = Uri.parse("android.resource://com.newflyingdutchman.newplaylistmanager/" + R.drawable.playlist); bitmap = decodeSampledBitmapFromResource(path, width, height); mMemCache.put(id, bitmap); */ } return bitmap; } However, Poweramp may get its thumb from other locations too, eg the embedded albumart on the mp3 itself. To quote Andre "Poweramp uses internal device storage for caching downloaded album art," but I found nothing using the Poweramp api relating to albumart. Code snippets from smoothie by Lucas Rocha
  11. Excited on this, since the stock music player from my xperia is just annoying in the way it handled the album art, where it only shows the first album art of the song for all songs of the same album title even I have different embedded art on those songs. That's why I returned to Poweramp because it gave me what I want for my songs' album art. By the way, I just want to have a clarification if its really supported by Poweramp: the DSEE HX and ClearAudio+ in the settings of my phone, because when I turned on the Music FX and hold it, the settings for these came out. I would like to know if the sound will be better 'cause I like the sound on my stock player(its just the album art that I don't like) so I believe these features are really implemented in the v3 alpha.
  12. Hi friends I have a question can i use Poweramp with bluestacks on pc?? if i do this my lisance will ban?? plz help
  13. I would also like to add a request for this, I have found the Ulefone phones to be excellent, and along with Poweramp, so far my cheap and cghheerful Vienna has seen off all comers:) Adding support for the hardware DAC would be superb. Might be worth contacting Ulefone as they position themselves in the audiophile market as much as anywhere.
  14. So when aprox? Any terms/deadlines? Can I contribute somehow with doing some remote work related to new beta? Any routine... nope? By the way can you name more specific - where the google altered what exactly in Nougat ? Where exactly is the main source of obstacle?
  15. Looked in AIMP and other desktop players, that support queue. After queue finished now we have 2 options: stop and back to last list. Add 3-rd option - continue play next file from last file in queue. Examples: There is Folder1 with songs Song11, Song12, Song13 and Folder2 with songs Song21, Song22, Song23. Now playing Song12 and i add to queue Song22. Variants: 1. When Song22 ends players stops (present in PA). 2. When Song22 ends player goes to play Song13 (present in PA). 3. When Song22 end player goes to play Song23 (feature request).
  16. Hi, Really like your work so far, Max. So great additions to PAmp.
  17. Hallo, TL:DR; reverse sorting of albums when using reverse listing does not sort properly. I'm a big fan of listing/sorting albums based on the date the album was add to Poweramp. This works fine with these settings: The list is sorted without reverse, which means that newly added albums will be listed at the bottom. However, I would like to reverse this, so that the newly added albums are on top of the list. But this does not work. Here is what it looks like when the sorting is set to reverse: Bottom of list: Top of list: As you can see, it seems quite random as to how Poweramp sorts in reverse. I would expect it to just reverse the listing, but that does not happen. I think this bug is in v2 as well. P.s., want to dump this thread: Please respond to this request. This should be a simple fix, and it has been requested for 6 years now. Developer does not seem to have any answer to this very simple question.
  18. From last informations in this year, planning on November but it's approximately.
  19. The latest stable release from Google Play is build 588 (or 589 for Intel devices). The latest 'alpha-test' version is 704, mainly to try out the new audio engine but it works pretty well as a daily-use build too. The next release will be a beta-test (i.e. close to completion, with a completely new user-interface) but there is no date for that yet. Andre
  20. If your phone/ROM (or launcher) is not displaying it, I can't suggest any way to change that I'm afraid. Andre
  21. last.fm

    Correct, it does not work correctly on the alpha-test versions. Turn it off, or revert back to the release build. Most people seem to find that turning it off completely in PA and enabling it in the Last.FM app gives better results, but personally I'd suggest just disabling it. Andre
  22. I think it will be in beta because in september Max worked with new notification's styles on Oreo.

  24. Though I could do it, I like the current launcher. Thanks for the suggestion though,
  25. @andrewilley, Yes you are right about that. But I see only 4 items. Moreover, I understand one more thing is that, the four things are widget and one missing thing in Redmi is the shorcut. Do you have any idea how to add that please? Thank you,
  26. Hi. Last.fm scrobbling is totally unstable on both official last.fm app and simple last.fm. Sometime it scrobbles but most of times it doesn't work. Some times after force stopping Poweramp it works for a while (during 1 or 2 songs). Phone : OnePlus 3T ROM : official OOS 4.5.0 p.s : I face this problem since months ago.
  27. I hope to see a faded notification panel for Poweramp like in stock music players in oreo.
