      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 and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

  1. If it's specific to that one device I would contact Sony to ask them if they know why this is happening. Andre
  2. I've been told you should get a reply within a couple of business days, but anecdotally I've noticed some users report longer waits than that. I don't have any access to those systems I'm afraid so I can do anything from here. Andre
  3. The simplest way would be to take the SD card out of your old phone and put it in your new one. Otherwise, copying via a USB cable to a computer and then back onto your new phone (also via USB cable) would be the next easiest option. A couple of things to consider: 1) The new device may use a different name for its SD Card location. Poweramp should still find it, but it would be worth going in to Settings > Folders and Library > MusicFolders once you have installed PA, and untick any locations that you don't want scanned, and just tick only the music folder located on your SD Card. 2) Such a change in directory naming can cause problems with playlists as they could now be referring to files in non-existent folders. Poweramp should be able to work this out, but if not you may need to edit the files to reflect the new directory path format (M3U or M3U8 files are just plain text list of paths/filenames, and are really simple to edit if you need to). 3) If needed, remember to export/backup your PA Settings and any internally-created playlists from your old device and then re-import the settings on the new one. The Playlist files can just be copied over (see 1 and 2 above). Things like ratings and most-played counts will not be transferred, and nor will downloaded album art. You may find that forum user TheoKlink's "New Playlist Manager" app might help if you have a lot of internal playlists, ratings, etc that you want to retain between devices. Andre
  4. You should still be able to play your files, just not outputting them at their full resolution as yet, just boring old CD quality for now. Andre
  5. Then please could you report this to poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com. Make sure to mention you have read the FAQ and all the details of your system that you've covered here. Andre
  6. I'm guessing memory corruption or a memory leak in one of your apps maybe? Glad it's OK now anyway. Andre
  7. Try rolling the Play Store app back to factory installed version and deleting its data and see if that helps. Is this an official Nougat build or a third-party ROM? Andre
  8. Read first post: Requests for ETAs are pointless, and will not make it happen any quicker! Andre
  9. The HTC One supports high-res audio in a variety of its incarnations, but that config file you uploaded does not include anything beyond 48,000Hz. I can't find anything online that says the E9+ versions provides high-res either, but it's a feature that rarely seems to get a mention in reviews or even spec sheets anyway. Andre
  10. That config file doesn't mention high-res audio anywhere, what makes you think your device supports it? Andre
  11. Maybe it's a memory thing then, does it still happen with only two apps trying to multitask? It's not something that seems to affects other users anyway, so it'd be hard to replicate. Is your device on stock ROM or modified? Andre
  12. If nothing that has been suggested so far has worked, please email poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com again (with details of what has been done so far) as user-account specific issues cannot easily be resolved in the forums. You do need to allow 24-48 hours with good internet connection for the licence check to verify, but it sounds like it is not even connecting with Google properly. Andre
  13. Yes, as I said, playlists are not written back to physical storage when they are modified, only the local internal database copy is updated. If your playlist was created internally in the first place, reinstalling Poweramp (on a new device for example) will completely wipe it, along with any other local app data. To save internal playlists, you can export them to .M3U8 files from the Settings page (and backup other settings too), or forum user TheoKlink has written an app called New Playlist Manager (available from the Play Store) which does that and a whole lot more. If the playlist was file-based in the first place, reloading it will revert to the .M3U[8] file on physical storage and any internal-memory changes will be lost. Andre
  14. Ah, if you start using another app that requires media audio output (YouTube, etc) then PA will indeed stop playing - it has to in fact. Apps that don't request media audio should not affect it though (and notifications should not stop it either, unless you have selected that as an option of course). Andre
  15. As it says in the thread title, please read the first post: Andre
