      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. Poweramp Powered by Tasker

  2. Using Intents/Tasker to play a specific artist

  3. Multiple Selection to Add to Playlists

    Why not use a dedicated playlist manager app such as New Playlist Manager. Not only does it allow you to create plalists in a variety of ways, it also integrates with Poweramp in that you can backup and restore your ratings as well as updating the Poweramp ratings tag on the track itself
  4. Custom sorting

    kennyh, if you mean "arists" as the criteria, you could use my app to create playlists. By selecting the Criteria option you can select from a number of tags, one of which is "artists". It will lists your artists and from here you can select one or more artists to create a new playlist. By exporting this playlist as .m3u format, you can make it available to Poweramp. In addition, you will be able to back up your Poweramp ratings.
  5. Sort folders by date added / created

    Just to confirm that there is no "path" data in the main tables. I suspect that indexes (or is it indices) are used to find the correct track
  6. Lyrics tag in vorbis comment

    Not sure if this helps but... There appear to be 2 lyrics tags for ogg vorbis. I have attached a link showing the different format fields side by side. I do not see the UNSYNCEDLYRICS tag though. However, it is possible to create your own custom tags with ogg vorbis. The information was taken from: http://www.jthink.net/jaudiotagger/tagmapping.html Perhaps Andre can shed light on whether all/most ogg vorbis tags are implemented in Poweramp?
  7. All user data disappeared

    when you state "backed everything up" do you mean your music or was your device rooted and you backed up the /data/data/com.providers.media folders ? If your interest is simply in preserving playlists, make sure you export them as m3u playlists. Poweramp has this functionality. You will find though that these m3u playlists will probably not work but not to worry, you can import them into android using my app. Once in android, Poweramp can import them.The import does not care where you place the tracks. It has the added benefit that you can also back up your Poweramp ratings or even write the ratings to the track itself.
  8. All user data disappeared

    This is a well known issue and has been discussed previously. When you move your sdcard to a new phone or reinstall your music to a different device, android rescans the media and repopulates its database. All internal playlists will not exist on the new device. It will use unique keys for each of the tracks etc. These keys are held on your android playlists. Any playlists saved on a different device will contain different keys. In addition, your sdcard may no longer be recognised as sdcard but is now called something totally different. Any exported playlists (as m3u or m3u8) will now hold an invalid path for each track. You can use a text editor to check this. How did you reimport your old playlists?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I just tested it on my tablet. Downloads and zip opens as expected. It is a windows application so will not run on android.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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??
  18. 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.
  19. Export Song Metadata

    For full details you can visit my website 😊😊
  20. Can't delete files from SD card

    I simply tried to explain why some apps can and others cant. 😊😊
  21. 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)
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. NPM can backup your pa "rating" and "times Played" and of course restore them. There is also an option to zero all pa ratings, write your pa ratings to the rating tag of the track itself OR update your pa ratings using the ratings tag of your tracks. Note that if you have an android version >= Marshmallow, AND your music is on an external sdcard, due to permission restrictions, the tag update will not work. Have a look here for more details: http://www.theo.klinkweb.nl/Poweramp.html
  25. Playlist Management

    Thank you Andre for mentioning my app. My next development will focus on offering sort options on a playlist. The intention is to offer a list of available tags to sort on. You can then save the new playlist.
