  1. Android Auto Playback

    Bluetooth media features in current cars... well... suck. Android Auto is Google's and Android Open Handset Alliance's attempt to create the best experience for car infotainment systems without the features becoming a distraction to driving. With the advent of the Android Auto app on the Play Store yesterday, Google has released a documentation for audio playback: https://developer.android.com/training/auto/audio/index.html I think adding this to Poweramp would be a great addition. What do others think? I personally think the Android Auto (and Apple Carplay) are hugely underrated.
  2. Does anyone reading this use Poweramp with their LG G5, and specifically with the Hi-Fi Plus Module DAC? What are the best settings to get the most out of it? Also, and this might require it's own thread...? I love Poweramp's auto resume music playback feature which occurs when we plug into the phone's headphone jack. It's especially amazing if you use your phone in the car. ANYWAYS... This feature doesn't work IF you are using LG G5's Hi-Fi Plus module. Upon re-plugging into the module's headphone jack, the phone needs to activate the module, and a small message appears indicating such. It only takes a second or two and then the message vanishes. This seems to be stopping the auto resume feature of Poweramp from working. I'm very, mega, uber sad about this. Note the Hi-Fi icon in the notifications up the top too... Does anyone know a way around this issue of the auto resume not working? Maybe if there were an optional delay of a few seconds before auto resume kicks in...?
  3. Poweramp version and build number: 2.0.10-build-571-play (Full Version) Your device model: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N9005) Your Android version: 4.42 MyPowerampwill play the music automatically (even I pause it/didn't open it). When I watch the short video, for example, Instagram & Facebook, when I play the video with sound, Poweramp will start to play music automatically. But seems Youtube do not have this problem. It is very annoying, please fix it as soon as possible. *I have tried the function of "auto focus" tick/without tick, still not work.
  4. Hi there! First of all, congratulations for the great work you've done so far. I've test the free version and just 2 minutes after I was buying the full one because it was "love at first sight". I'm using Poweramp on my recently bought Android car stero (autoradio, or whatever you call it). It's one of these chinese units specific for VW cars, and it comes with Android 4.2.2 in a very nice working package (ebay seller, I won't say the name, stereo model ES9401). From my old WindowsCE-based navigation system I'm really missing the following functionality that perhaps you can bring into Poweramp in the future: 1) Recognize the built-in car-stereo buttons for jumping forward or backwards a song. My radio has these two buttons on the front and they work with the very limited built-in multimedia player, but they don't work with Poweramp. I know that this is not easy because it will depend on each of the units, but maybe you can add a kind of "search" algorithm that allows you to define the function for the built-in buttons of these chinese units. In other words, a menu where I can press one of the front-panel button, Poweramp detects this button, and then allows me to add a function to this button (which can be jumping forward a song, or fading the screen black, or opening the SD card folder, or whatever!) 2) Speaker foward-rear fader: this chinese units have a specific Android ROM that is limited in the amount of options in the "Settings" menu. For example, it has no "screensaver" option or the already mentioned "fade-to-black" screen to turn off the screen at night for example. However, it does have a menu for control of the audio outputs, with a simple 3-band equalizer and a "drag-the-ball" speaker balance and fader, to select to which one of the 4 speakers is the audio going, like in any normal auto-stereo. The problem is that this menu is almost hidden inside the Settings menu. I was wondering if you can include this option of speaker forward-rear fader inside Poweramp so that you can have this balance-fader option for multiple audio outputs. Ok, I hope I'm not asking too much... Thanks in advance! Diego
  5. I can understand the desire to have a music player resume playing a track I was listening to when it connects to BT. However, I do not understand why it would be desirable to have one's phone start a music player that was not open and start playing a random track from the phone's storage. This is what happens every time I get in my vehicle ('11 Toyota Tundra) with my HTC One. As soon as my phone connects to the truck's bluetooth, Poweramp starts up and starts playing an audio file of a recording I made of a training class. It was the same file every time, so 'random' in that I hadn't listened to or played that file in over a year. I deleted that file, and now it plays another training recording I had made. It seems Android OS is issuing a 'Play' command as soon as it detects a BT connection has been made and opens the default player and starts playing "something". To say this is maddening is an understatement. I get in and out of my truck maybe 10-15 times an evening due to my business, and every time, I hear this trainer's voice come on and have to kill the player. I've tried apps like Media Button Router and BT Connect & Stop, but while they sort of work some of the time and make this more tolerable, sometimes when they kill the player, I then can't play anything to my truck from any other app until I reboot my phone or re-start the vehicle to reset the BT connection. And then it happens again... My phone was doing this with the default 'Music' app, and when I saw that Poweramp had a setting to disable 'Resume on Bluetooth', I was hopeful. I was even more hopeful when Poweramp was the player that my phone started the next time I got in my truck. Unfortunately, however, disabling 'Resume on Bluetooth' doesn't seem to change anything. Now I just hear the same fellow's voice playing from Poweramp each time I get in my truck. I'm coming off of an HTC Rezound which did not do this (same vehicle). HELP!!! If you can solve this you are my hero and I'd pay much more than $5 for your registered version!!! I'm considering getting rid of my HTC One I just got if I can't figure this out, I can't tolerate how annoying this is! Thanks in advance! I posted this under 'Bugs' because it seems that setting was intended to prevent this from happening, but it doesn't. If it's something different, please move this post to Feature Request. Thanks! I'm happy to work with you directly and be your guinea pig if you want to test a fix. Phone: HTC One Android Version: 4.3 HTC Sense version: 5.0 Poweramp: 2.0.9-build-544-play
  6. Smart Playlists

    On my iPod, I use to have smart playlists I could build based on various different settings, so if I added a new metal song for example, it would automatically be added to my metal playlist. Or if I added a new song and rated it 5 stars, it would be added to my 5-star playlist. I used the rating system a lot I see PowerMP has a "Top Rated" playlist, but it seems to play anything I've rated. I accidentally rated some songs 5-star and didn't want them on my "Top Rated" playlist, so I just rated them 1-star. But the 1-star songs keep showing up. So two questions...can I totally erase the rating I give a song, and can I make "smart playlists" that will automatically add songs based on certain things, i.e, genre, rating, etc.? Thanks in advance for the help.
  7. One feature I think would be fantastic is to better support bluetooth devices such as car radios which already have an amplifier and equalizer. When paired with a bluetooth device which has a built-in amp, it would be great for Poweramp to output a flat non-preamped signal over bluetooth. This way, amp volume, bass boost and various equalizer settings can be controlled only by the external device. However, when not paired to a bluetooth device which has it's own amp and equalizer, the Poweramp equalizer and volume controls would be used. As always, when wired ear buds/headphones are used, Poweramp controls everything. If this is already an existing feature, my apologies but I've not been able to figure out how to do this. If anyone already know how to do this, please point me in the right direction.
