  1. Playlist File Location

    I would like to know the location of playlist files. Elsewhere I found the suggestion thaty they are located at: data/data/com.maxmpz.audioplayer/databases/folders.db However searching at this location gives two directories - cache and files. Cache is empty Files goes down to music - which is also empty. Any advice or suggestions welcome Thanks.
  2. Hi, Just bought Poweramp from Google Playstore. It is an amazing app! I do not know if this is already in the settings but I am unable to find it. I want all the songs that have already been played in a playlist to change color. This is helpful when you switch between playlists. All that is needed is if the play-head crosses from the end of 1 song to the next one in a playlist the previous song title changes color. This is already implemented in Queue! All the songs that have been played change color to dark grey. Is there some setting I need to switch-on to make this feature work in Playlist as well? (I have read on the forum that the last played song in a playlist is not remembered if you play some other song. So this simple sensible workaround is not available). I hope the above feature actually exists for playlist since it has already been implemented for Queue else it makes Poweramp much less useful for me. Thank you.
  3. Find Missing Playlist files

    Sorry, if this has been posted before but I find that from time to time I need to reorganise my songs/folders. In doing so, any playlists that contained any of these songs will report it as missing even though it's still there just in a different location. It'd be handy if when a missing song is flagged in a playlist it would give you the option to search for the song or offer to automatically scan for missing songs if they haven't been manually deleted. And also, if a song does exist in a playlist and you delete it, maybe a warning or notification that the song belongs to a particular playlist and won't be available (obviously) if deleted with an option to also remove from the playlist/playlists it belongs to on deletion. Just helps to keep tings tidy Many thanks Oh, and just one other thing, maybe an option to export songs along with a playlist. Sometimes I want a particular playlist of songs on my laptop or tablet for when I travel and it's be really useful if I could export that playlist with the songs it contains so I can drag them onto my other device
  4. When I switched back and forth between those versions, I lost all the Most Played playlist, that's annoying. Is there any way to backup all of them? Thanks in advance,! and Happy New Year!
  5. Recently added list limit

    Is there anyway for me to limit number of songs in recently added list? for example the default is 200 songs but I want 50. Also I use MusicBee to import songs, how do I sync playlist with it? thanks,
  6. Scroll playlist

    When scrolling through a playlist with more songs on your device, you can scroll in alphabetical order, but some with the narrow limits it is impossible to click on the scroll line! You can make it a little more?
  7. "play next" feature

    I can best explain this by an example. You hear all your music in shuffle Mode but as the next song you want to hear your favorite one so you choose it to "play next" and then it will play after the current song ends (for example you are at song 35/500 and then you do this and your favorite song will play at 36/500). I really liked this feature in the google Play music app but since i only use Poweramp i would be glad if this would be added. With this you can also play the song you want as the next one without restarting the whole shuffle playlist ^^
  8. Que and playlists

    Hello. Is there some way to delete the whole que or do you have to delete each individual track? How do you play a playlist only? I selected the playlist I wanted but it keeps going back to the whole track list. Thanks!!!
  9. Hi, I am on 2.0.10 build 588-play Full Version. and on 3.0 beta! I accidently created a playlist of nearly 100.000 titles. I can not delete this list. When I push the "x" button PA waits a few seconds and goes then to the main screen. The Playlist is still there. No big deal, but still a bug. I could help myself if someone would tell me where and in what format PA stores playlists. Seems to be a mystery. I created a playlist and then looked for the name in my explorer, without success. My device is rooted.
  10. Is it possible to pin the last created playlist to the top so that we don't need to scroll the whole list when creating a new list. it's quite long winded when adding new songs and the list is low down on the alphabet.
  11. I have noticed that since 703 update, the shuffle playlist feature only rotates about 100 songs out of the 2000+ I have. The algorithm either appears to be corrupted or has a very limited spectrum. I have tried: Rebooting the device Reshuffling the order Deleting/recreating playlist Other media players do not display this issue with the same playlists (played songs I had almost completely forgot about because of Poweramps's "shunning"). Was not able to resolve the issue. Anyone else experience this issue? Trying to determine if my issue is isolated to my device. My device: Verizon LG G4, Android 6.0
  12. Hi It would be great to supply a mode for one-touch playlist management from the play-screen. Consider the following scenario: I have just purchased a new album. I set the straight playback and start driving my car while listening to the music.While I listen I like/dislike tracks. At this moment I can only react with stars which does not help me much. I do not really need the album cover at this moment. I would rather like to have a pair of huge buttons: up (like) and down (dislike). The result I would expect is an explicit playlist made of the tracks I "liked". One-touch is a mandatory. That way I would be building a playlist across my library via different modes i.e. straight, shuffle etc and have an opportunity to have a "liked" playlist always at hand when I am not in the mood for experiments. Regards, Eugene.
  13. This isn't a feature vital to the listening experience, but it would be a great quality of life thing. For me, anyway. When I had a Galaxy S3 a few years back, the stock music player on the phone had this feature: You could assign an image to a playlist, in much the same way albums have album art. That way, when you scroll down your list of playlists, you'd see your custom icons next to the playlist names instead of just some generic placeholder icon. For example, I used a picture with a bunch of laser beams on it for an EDM playlist, and a picture of young Clint Eastwood for a playlist of "old west" songs. It was just a customization feature I loved, just like being able to set your own album art or choose your phone's wallpaper. So when I eventually moved on to a newer Galaxy, I was super disappointed to discover that Samsung have dropped this feature from the newer versions of their stock player. I've scoured the Play Store and tried dozens of other players since then, and the pickings are slim. None of the well-designed players like Poweramp have this feature, and the two (2!!!) standalone players I found that DO have the feature are really awful, buggy, slow and ugly, not to mention absolutely riddled with obnoxious ads. Apple Music and Spotify also have feature, but Apple requires you to pay a subscription just to use the app and Spotify doesn't even detect locally stored music, you have to add it to your Spotify collection first (plus, you can't edit playlist images on the mobile app, only on their desktop software! Ridiculous!) Anyway, that's the end of my rant. I think it's a great yet simple personalization feature and the fact that it's not more common blows my mind. Seeing as Poweramp is already such a powerful player, I think this feature would make a good addition to it.
  14. When setting up my phone I had an existing music collection with playlists in m3u format on a memory card. Poweramp recognized them nicely and worked fine with them. Now I have added a new track by copying it from dropbox to the collection's folder on the memory card. I located that track in Poweramp's folder-view, long-pressed it, selected "add to playlist" and chose an existing playlist. After that the playlist had only one track, the one I had added. I retried that with a different playlist, same effect. Good that I still had the original m3u file somewhere else, so that I could copy it over. Something's terribly wrong here.
  15. That's a fairly simple thing I guess . A display of the total length of a playlist/queue on the list would be great. That would be very useful when making playlists for running or workout. For instance I do 45 minute sessions of running and it would be great to know if I have enough tracks for that period of time. Cheers
  16. Playlist List Options

    I m a fan since many years now. When using Poweramp on a tablet and view the playlists it is a shame how much space is empty. It would be better to be able to chance it to a pattern view (2collumn or 3collumn) via list options like it is already there in the folder section. It would be espacially helpfull while using it in the car because the scrolling through the lists is very distractring. Thanks for considering it!
  17. When I try to add a song or songs to a playlist that hasn't been loaded, Poweramp would delete the current playlist content to add only the new ones. I have only tried it with File-based Playlists. You should add a feature to load the playlist prior adding new songs.
  18. Hi, before explain my issue: 1) Sorry if someone had already posted this, but I wasn't able to find it in this forum 2) I am using the Alpha version but the issue happens also with the stable one. What I noticed is that Poweramp doesn't bring in all the songs avaiable in a playlist. In my example, I have a playllist of #359 tracks, but Poweramp sees only #325 (see pics). few considerations: - I made a rescan and a full rescan - Other players (ie JetAudio) can read the whole playlist Model: Samsung Galaxy S6 OS: Android 6.0.1 Poweramp: alpha-build-703-play (full version) Thanks, CL
  19. Create a Playlist

    OK ... pretend I'm in 3rd grade. How do I create a new playlist .... and then assign songs/MP3s I have to that playlist?
  20. Marshmallow 6.13.661.9 Htc one m8 Newest PA release since April 3 Ever since marshmallow upgrade, all playlists created previously in PA licensed, show up with zero songs. Songs still in same locations on SD, reselected folders, rescanned, imported, still zero songs. New playlists create fine, album playlists not created in PA from old folders still read and play fine. Please help so I don't have to rebuild all my old playlists.
  21. I have the following code which works for Google Play Music but partly for Poweramp public void playSelectedPlaylist(String playlistname) { Intent intent = new Intent( MediaStore.INTENT_ACTION_MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH); intent.putExtra(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.ENTRY_CONTENT_TYPE, "android.intent.extra.playlist" ); intent.putExtra(SearchManager.QUERY, playlistname); intent.putExtra(MediaStore.EXTRA_MEDIA_FOCUS, "vnd.android.cursor.item/playlist"); if (intent.resolveActivity(getPackageManager()) != null) { startActivity(intent); }else{ doToast("Sorry, no app was found to service this request", context); } } The intent is INTENT_ACTION_MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH and it finds all those apps that have this in their manifest.xml file. So far so good as Poweramp shows up. Selecting Poweramp from the choices does present the user with the appropriate playlist. When clicking this and select "Play" nothing happens other than Poweramp asking me if I want to play filtered or play all. Selecting either has not effect as nothing happens The intent.putExtra(SearchManager.QUERY, playlistname) is as follows: [ResolveInfo{410e93c8 com.maxmpz.audioplayer.PlayListActivity p=0 o=0 m=0x108000}] Poweramp has the following actions for PlayListActivity - ACTION_SHOW_CURRENT - ACTION_SHOW_LIST - SEARCH - MEDIA_SEARCH - CREATE_SHORTCUT The PlayerUIActivity has - VIEW - MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH Looking at this I assume that Poweramp reacts as a potential app to handle the activity but when it then has to deal with a playlist, there is no action to process it. Is my assumption correct? If so, will this functionality be added to the next release? Google Play Music does play the playlist without any problems. Anyone with suggestions, thoughts I can try out?
  22. Android updated wiped my playlists

    Poweramp Version: 2.0.10-build-588-play (Full Version) Sony Xperia Z3 Android version: Upgrading to Android 6.0.1 (dont know exact previous version) All my music is located on an SC card Upon using Poweramp for the first time after the Android update (a day or so later maybe) I discovered that: My scan or "watch" directories had been reset My playlists now show "0 songs" (and are 0 bytes in size). I foun this topic and while not all the variables are the same, it leads me to believe a similar thing has happened to me, as the playlist itself would be on internal storage, whereas my music would be on my SD card, which would suggest if the watch folders reset for whatever reason, the songs "wouldn't be there" so to speak, and so delete them from the list. I realise all hope is lost for my playlists, I'm just making you aware of the issue so you can prevent it from happening again (if indeed it is the app that decides to remove the item from the playlist).Capt. Hindsight has already given me a talking to about backing up Stig.
  23. Live playlists from Rocket Player

    Hi. I love Poweramp and currently is the best player for me, but it lack just one thing that the previous player I used has: live playlists. In Rocket Player I could make playlists setting up some conditions, for example: In this way, the player will add all the 5-stars musics from Metallica, Epica and Pentakill and dubstep musics. Only the "RATING IS 5" is marked as required rule. It's like if the music have 5 stars, then if the music contains "Metallica", or "Epica", or "Pentakill" as artist or "Dubstep" as genre, add to the list. If I delete or modify something, the player updates the list. So I can make one playlist for 5-stars dubsteps, other for 5-stars heavy metal, and another for 5-stars mixed musics, without the need to add manually music per music. If this idea is implemented, would be great adding "folder" as condition too (my dubsteps musics don't have the genre tag, but all are in a specific folder). Rocket Player: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrtstudio.AnotherMusicPlayer Thank you for the attention.
  24. update playlist

    G'day, I've been using android since the first samsung galaxy came out and Poweramp is the only app that i have ever felt worthy of paying for, if it costs money i won't use it but Poweramp is just too good not to have full access to and now it is the only one that i have ever decided to comment on, it's a realy good app, congrats on that but i have two devices, my phone and a tablet and i use only Poweramp on both of them, i had several hundred songs on my phone when i got my tablet so i installed Poweramp and transferred all my songs to my tab, now almost two years later i have considerable my songs on my phone then my tab and as times goes by the diff gets bigger and the only way to update my tab would be to download them one by one and thats just more hassle than its worth. it would be really nice to see a playlist update feature where i can click on it while my seperate devices are sitting next to or near each other and then the Poweramp apps on devices will link up and the one i use to initate the link will then go through the playlist of the other and find out what songs it has that the other one doesn't have then begin transferring and update the playlist of the lessor Poweramp, that way no matter what device is used to download songs on it will then become a very simple way to keep everything updated. If you could look into the possibility of that and let me know then that would be great. p.s. being able to play music videos would be great too, i have a heap of them too and the music plays but it would be nice to see the videos without having to use another app. p.p.s a Poweramp for laptops would be awesome so that we can then use Poweramp no matter what device we are on. Cheers. Sorry about the long post btw
  25. Dual (or more) play memories

    I use Poweramp a lot - it is my favorite player - thanks. Sometimes I listen to Audio books - which by their nature are long. So I set Poweramp off playing the many tracks from a folder (or playlist). However sometimes I want a break and to listen to some music. What I would like to have is two (or more) play memories which I can switch between = one for remembering where I am in my Audio book and one for my music. I would then like to be able to switch between them so that when I switch back to the Audio book play memory, I resume where I last left off. The same for when I switch to the music play memory. The memory is really just a memory of where I am in a play sequence (progress through a folder or playlist). So is there a way to do this already (which I have not found) or could this be added as a feature? Regards Tony.
