      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. It is hoped this will be ready for final beta-testing by the end of the May. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. My app New Playlist Manager has a "smart playlists" feature which allows you to sort in any way you like using the mp3 tags. It also allows you to backup and restore your pa ratings.
  2. I do not know tasker but in java code I launch a Poweramp playlist in New Playlist Manager as follows: Intent intent = new Intent(MediaStore.INTENT_ACTION_MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH); intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_MEDIA_FOCUS, "vnd.android.cursor.item/playlist"); intent.putExtra(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.ENTRY_CONTENT_TYPE, "vnd.android.cursor.item/playlist"); intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_MEDIA_TITLE, "playlist"); intent.putExtra(SearchManager.QUERY, playlist); if (intent.resolveActivity(getActivity().getPackageManager()) != null) { startActivity(intent);} where intent.putExtra(SearchManager.QUERY, playlist); where playlist has the actual playlistname Perhaps this helps.
  3. I just tested it on my tablet. Downloads and zip opens as expected. It is a windows application so will not run on android.
  4. One easy method to check if your sdcard is corrupt is to use a little utility from Heisse Publishing. It will show whether the sdcard is recoverable or not https://www.heise.de/download/product/h2testw-50539 The link is in German but simply download it and try. I used and used the results with my corrupted Sandisk sdcard to get a brand new one. Sandisk have a 10 year guarantee. I have also added the zip Heisse_h2testw_1.4.zip
  5. My apologies, you need to use a usb adapter for sdcards. Google own and develop android so they can do what they like. They say it is for security reasons. Did you try snd use a file explorer on your device as Andre suggested? EsExplorer is a good one
  6. As Andre explained, Google have locked the sdcard down. Sometimes the "grant access" works but i believe its success depends on the manufacturer. You could remove the card from your device and access it using a pc. Connect it using usb. You will have full read,write permissions T
  7. Rating sync between devices

    Visit http://www.theo.klinkweb.nl/Poweramp.html For a detailed step by step guide ps, if you want to preserve your playlists, make sure you export them as m3u(8) playlists. Even of you do not place your music in the same location on your new device, you can use npm to import these playlists. It will recreate them for android which you then import into Poweramp. A bit long winded but you would needto do this only once.
  8. You only need one unlocker. Simply update your Poweramp app and it will recognise that you have a paid version. Du brauchst nur eine unlocker. Dass ist einmalig, download eine neue Poweramp app und alles sollte klappen.
  9. Can't delete files from SD card

    I will test this out as it would be a good solution. IMO Google just want to get rid of the external sdcards. God knows why??
  10. tjennings, your idea is interesting but I cannot see how your example could ever work. First of all, renaming the song and copying it back to your device would effectively mean a totally new track and there would be no way to identify the original song on your device using the information of the new track. By copying it back you would recreate a new song id and I guess you would have to delete the original. However, the idea of identifying playlists a particular track may be on, is of useful and I may try and implement this in my app.
  11. Export Song Metadata

  12. Can't delete files from SD card

    I simply tried to explain why some apps can and others cant. 😊😊
  13. Can't delete files from SD card

    MoZzZgG, I have been trying to understand why some apps can write to the external sdcard and others (like my New Playlist Manager) can not when dealing with android 6and above. Google have locked the external sdcard in terms of write permissions, for "security" reasons. However, I have found there is such as thing as Storage Access Framework which does allow writing For reference: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/providers/document-provider.html So, unless you implement this framework and use its methods, you are stuck. I suspect this framework only apples to api 21 or above so any apps using a lower api can not use it. (I have to find out exactly if this is true though)
  14. Genre changes not saving to file

    On a pc, use a neat little utility called FileTagSleuth, This is able to read ID2 and Id1 tags. This should clearly show the values of "genre". Alternatively, on android there are many mp3 taggers which would also help. I use audiotagger to check/update tags. Experiment with pa and check with one of these tag utilities to see if the value(s) have changed.
  15. API Update

    Andre, next time you communicate with Max, can you ask if he will also release an updated API with the next alpha release As you probably are aware, I am particularly interested in the ability to insert records into the folders_playlist_entries table. Thanls
