  1. Float32 sample

    Some time ago, a forum user posted a sort of user guide to the Poweramp settings but i am unable to find this post. Does anyone remember this? If so please post the link.p
  2. Playlists not always updating when changed

    The synching of songs to Poweramp works as pa detects this the same way android does. The net effect is that the database gets updated and this is reflected in the pa library. However, there is nothing to make your playlists update. I assume your playlists are m3u8 so will contain the full path as on your pc. How is this resolved when you copy these playlists to your device? What i think is happening, when you uninstall/reinstall pa the pa database is deleted. On install, it gets recreated and this time the playlists are rebuilt (pa finds the playlists) as everything is done from scratch. Rather than uninstall/reinstall pa, you could try my app to import your playlists into android and save them as m3u again. (Unfortunately, At the moment the pa api (programming interface) does not allow me to create the playlist in Poweramp itself)
  3. Poweramp is very good at finding playlists, tracks etc. first make sure that pa only scans where your music is. Settings, Folders and library, music folders. Only select relevant ones. Next delete all playlists again. Then reboot and see which ones return. If the unwanted ones return then there are m3u files within your music files. Alternatively, use eexplorer and search for .m3u. Remove the ones you do not want.
  4. The fact that your playlists show empty can be due to a few reasons. You may have unticked the locations where Poweramp searches so any tracks located on the device are then not found. Poweramp will rescan and update (remove tracks it can not find) its database. Any links on your playlists to those lost tracks are also removed. When you reinstate the locations to search, a rescan will restart and the database updated ( adding the new tracks) but they will be treated as new tracks and you are not able to get your old ( empty) playlist back. The same process happens when your device is updated to a later version of android where the sdcard is named differently. Effectively the same as removing your sdcard and reinserting a different one. Difficult to find out what you did but you should back up your playlists by exporting them as .m3u8 (m3u) playlists. Poweramp offers this option under Settings, Folders and Library, Export Poweramp playlists. I will not complicate things but in a worst case scenario, you can use my app to import these playlists. Your original playlist will be restored. Also, If you apply ratings to your music in Poweramp, ensure you use my app to back these up as Poweramp can not do this.
  5. Option to embed star rating to file (for WMP)?

    Andre, thank you for mentioning npm. The app can update your mp3/flac/mp4 tags using your Poweramp ratings as well as the reverse, update Poweramp tracks with ratings recorded on the tags of your tracks.
  6. Kabisi, Andre, your device needs to be rooted though does it not?
  7. Playlists shows 0 songs

    The fact that your playlists show empty can be due to a few reasons. You may have dismounted your sdcard and any tracks located on this card can then not be found. Both android and Poweramp will rescan and update (remove tracks it can not find) its databases. Any links on your playlists to those lost tracks are also removed. When you reinsert your sdcard, rescan will restart and the databases updated ( adding the new tracks) but they will be treated as new tracks and you are not able to get your old ( empty) playlist back. The same process happens when your device is updated to a later version of android where the sdcard is named differently. Effectively the same as removing your sdcard and reinserting a different one. Difficult to find out what you did but you should back up your playlists by exporting them as .m3u8 (m3u) playlists. Poweramp offers this option under Settings, Folders and Library, Export Poweramp playlists. I will not complicate things but in a worst case scenario, you can use my app to import these playlists. Your original playlist will be restored. Also, If you apply ratings to your music in Poweramp, ensure you use my app to back these up as Poweramp can not do this.
  8. Tidy up album view

    Poweramp simply presents what it finds on the mp3 tags. To display any album the way you want, edit the album tag of your mp3. There are several mp3 taggers such as audioscanner and audiotagger
  9. Create and Manage Playlists on PC?

    Apart from creating playlist for streaming music, you could create m3u playlists for music on your pc, as long as the same music exists on your android device. Although these m3u playlists would hold the incorrect path info (that of your pc), my app New Playlist Manager can import such a playlist. No need to worry about the pathname. To play them with Poweramp, import android playlist or as m3u playlists.
  10. Poweramp itself does not allow you to backup ratings and times played. However, my app New Playlist Manager allows you to export and re import ratings and times played. Unfortunately, you will have lost your ratings by switching as pa overwrites its database with a new one.
  11. ImprovementZ

    why the swearing? can you not make your point otherwise?
  12. Albums with same title confusion

    Is is a topic often discussed on this forum. Search the forum for album artist
  13. erase all my musics

    The uninstall of Poweramp or any other app for that matter will not and cannot erase your data. Something else caused that.
  14. Uninstalling and reinstalling both apk's may rectify your issue. Before you do make sure your Google account is listed on the device. (Settings. Accounts)
