      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/early June. See forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. Another data point for Max maybe. Went to work yesterday with no tags appearing on my stereo via PA. Track finished part way through. During the day I played about with an app called TuneIn Radio whilst nowhere near my car (which was turned off and locked in the car park). Left work, started PA again at the place I'd left off that morning and noticed mp3 tags appearing on my stereo. 'Oh, it's decided to work today' I thought. Then I noticed that the tags were from the TuneIn Radioapp that I'd played with (and exited) a couple of hours previously. Got home and started another mp3 player app, played one of the songs that had just been playing via PA and lo and behold the correct mp3 tags appeared on my stereo. So, not sure what's happening from a SW viewpoint but it's not ROM related and it's not car stereo related (in my case), it just seems to be PA.
  2. Maybe an additional data point for Max to work on, or maybe not ..... got to work yesterday after BT was working OK for once. i.e. the track title/artist was scrolling on my car head set as it should. At work I hardly use my phone so when I left the same track was at the same position to play again. However, when it finished and a new track came on the old BT data was still on the headunit suggesting the new one hadn't been downloaded. This works fine with other players as I mention above. Over to Max .....
  3. Probably mentioned before that I also have the BT problem with my car headunit. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and I can't seem to be able to narrow it down to anything in particular. However, recently did some more experiments. 1) the Samsung music player (got a Galaxy S7 with more or less stock 7.0.x ROM) works fine. 2) a Galaxy S4 running a version of Android 6.x (CM) runs fine with the stock music player. 3) a Windows 10 phone works fine as well. Now, I can't remember why I was testing these other phones out but I noticed that after using them then PA (version 3 SW) on my S7 also started to work fine. For a while. I'm wondering if it could be some BT initialisation issue with PA? Just thought I'd throw out a theory ......
  4. Hmmm. In those intervening 'years' you could have tagged your mp3s correctly and not had the problem. As has been said, PA is doing what it should do with the incomplete tags in your mp3 files.
  5. My situation is sort of similar. I have a Kenwood KMM-BT302 stereo in my car and a Galaxy S7 phone with 6.0.1 (though now a custom ROM). Latest firmware on the stereo and the alpha version of PA. The mp3 tags do get transferred and displayed by the stereo but not reliably. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't, I haven't figured out any common reason why yet. Though from reading many forums about the issue with BT between phones and stereos it would seem that it is the stereo at fault in many cases. Anything I/we can to to help debug this? Dave
  6. Que? On Android 7.1? Which is only out officially on a couple of Google phones?
  7. Just to check here. The repeated songs aren't actually from different albums are they? I eman, the same song from the original album, the Greatest Hits and a compilation that also contains that song, for example? I've also thought I've heard the same song in a short period of time but it was actually one of the above examples.
  8. Those that are having problems, how is your card formatted? I have mine formatted as fat32 (on the PC - for cards over 32GB search for 'fat32format' and if you're not a fan of the command line, 'guiformat') and that seems to get over a whole lot of problems that some people have with SD Cards in Android 6.x. One thing I found vaguely interesting was that when I formatted my sdcard (for some reason I did this recently - can't remember why ....) the mount point changed from the above '215F-1B08' to another string, though obviously the same format. Seems this 'string' only changes when formatted - maybe this is why some can't find their card? Dave
  9. I know the OP is using a stock ROM but Marshmallow (Android 6.x) does seem to have a load of BT issues. At least from the custom ROM side of things. Have you checked out forums for your phone (particularly xda) to see if there are any known issues? Dave
  10. Weird. A few days after I posted this I started to get the audio visualisation instead of a blank screen where the album art used to be. No other changes were made ..... Anyway, I saw the thread regarding turning off visualisation and the album art is back. It's not obvious though .......
  11. OK. So I finally downloaded V3 to test and found an album art issue. I use 'in folder' album art, all named 'cover.jpg', with a separate folder per album and nothing in the mp3 tags regarding the art. The current V2 Poweramp has no problems whatsoever with this. I have flashed many ROMs over the time I've had my Galaxy S4, from various CyanogenMod ROMs to AOSP to stock (ish ...) Touchwiz ROMs. None have had any problems at all and I rarely even have to tweak PA settings after a restore using Titanium Backup, except to point to my 'music' folder on my SDCard with Android 6 ROMs occasionally. Currently on an AOSP-based Android 6.0.1 ROM. Basically, if PA is full screen with album art showing it's fine whilst on 'pause'. As soon as I hit 'play' the art disappears and only returns when I hit 'pause' again. I have PA set to 'pause' the music when a headset is disconnected. This works and also causes the album art to be displayed again, as above. However, I also have the PA large widget on one of my screens (4x5 is it?) and this always displays album art, whether the song is on 'pause' or 'play. Anyone else seen this? Ta Dave
  12. On my Galaxy S4 running an AOSP 6.0.1 ROM my sdcard, as reported via Poweramp, is at /storage/215F-1B08 It's been the same with all 6.x ROMs I've tried (from memory). And reading various internet forum threads the sdcard under 6.x is always in this format IF it's being used as an external device. i.e. as 'Document storage' in Marshmallow parlance. People seeing it differently haven't formatted their sdcard as internal storage have they?
  13. Sure it's Poweramp? There have been many reports of lag generally after the Android 6 update on many ROMs/phones. Have you an official LG version of 6 or a custom ROM? Persoanlly I run a custom 6.0.1 on my Galaxy S4 and have no lag.
  14. Nope, not in the minority. If the phone supports more than 32GB it means it supports the sdxc standard. They go from 32GB to 2TB. Obviously we don't have 2TB cards yet so what happens is the manufacturers support the largest "available" at launch. With the S4 it was 64GB. At the moment you'll find most say 128GB. So, the phone will support more than 64 .... Back to formatting ... I use XP Pro and by default it won't format fat32 on more than 32GB. But look for 'fat32format.exe' on the interwebs plus 'guiformat' (same web site? I forget) and you're away. Seems phones and sdcard formatting can be an issue but formatting as fat32 seems to sure a few problems , even a few on early(ish) versions of marshmallow. Dave
