      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      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, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.

  1. Sounds like you simply need to create playlists. No point overloading the ui if the functionality is already available imoh
  2. Simply go to Settings, Folders and Library, Music Folders. Here you only select folders you want Poweramp to scan.
  3. When you export your playlists in Poweramp it uses the playlist name with a .m3u8 extension. It also tells you where they will be saved.
  4. Good thinking Batman, this approach would resolve the issue Pauser is having. I will send him an older version compatible with pre android 5
  5. Forum members,if you are interested, adb ( android debug bridge) can be installed on your pc as a standalone program. Once installed, plug in your device via usb, usb debugging enabled, and you will see the stacktrace of everything on your device. In addition, you can actually move around on the device as su using the windows cmd adb shell which takes you onto the device. From here you can use familiar unix commands duch as ls -al etc
  6. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.flyingdutchman.newplaylistmanagerhttp://www.theo.klinkweb.nl/ there is a free version too
  7. Be aware that at the moment the Poweramp api does NOT allow inserting into a Poweramp playlist. My app can create the(empty) playlist, reorder any pa playlist, delete tracks from any pa playlist and delete the pa playlist itself but INSERT is not yet available. Max has promised this in the next release.
  8. To answer your earlier post, Given the null error when Poweramp executes a query I do not think this is permission related. Second post, you will often find error logs like this but they are non fatal and have no direct impact. Why dont you try my app and see how your android playlists are displayed there?
  9. Best to email me as this is after all a Poweramp forum 😊
  10. in sql database table name is audio_meta but to access in code: I have highlighted the one private final String track_id = MediaStore.Audio.Media._ID; private final String track_no = MediaStore.Audio.Media.TRACK; private final String track_name = MediaStore.Audio.Media.TITLE; private final String artist = MediaStore.Audio.Media.ARTIST; private final String artist_id = MediaStore.Audio.Media.ARTIST_ID; private final String duration = MediaStore.Audio.Media.DURATION; private final String album = MediaStore.Audio.Media.ALBUM; private final String composer = MediaStore.Audio.Media.COMPOSER; private final String year = MediaStore.Audio.Media.YEAR; private final String path = MediaStore.Audio.Media.DATA; private final String date_added = MediaStore.Audio.Media.DATE_ADDED; private final Uri uri = MediaStore.Audio.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI;
  11. No, i am not mistaken. I regularly excute sql queries on my pc in both datbases to test things out for my app so am very familiar of their structures and content.
  12. Looks like it is down to some error on your tracks. I assume Poweramp reads each track on the android playlist and finds its equivalent in the database. I suspect it takes the trackname to identify a track so i would check if there are any strange tracknames (eg with apostrophy for example). You could clear data on both Poweramp and android and reboot. This would rebuild both databases. The android database holds the full filepath for a track so i suspect this is where Poweramp starts. Powerwmp handles it differently in its database, it holds the track only but knows in which folder to find it.
  13. Please post some of the relevant stacktrace ps. is this a custom rom? and lastly, I suggest you clear Poweramp data and reboot your device so the pa database can be rebuilt. make sure to backup playlists etc.
  14. If your device is rooted, you may be able to use Logcat. It can record output so you may be able to see what happens in the background.
  15. It may be that rooting has changed permissions on file systems, you would think that rooting would improve access rather than restrict.
