      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. Back again with a question. Although you cannot insert tracks into a new playlist with the current api, I seem to remember someone managed to update the sort. However I cannot get it to work: public void updatePositionOnPowerampPlaylist(Context context, String id, String playlist_id, int to) { Uri uri = PowerampAPI.ROOT_URI.buildUpon() .appendEncodedPath("playlists") .appendEncodedPath(playlist_id) .appendEncodedPath("files") .build(); ContentResolver resolver = context.getContentResolver(); ContentValues values = new ContentValues(); values.put("sort", to); String where = "_id =?"; String selectionArgs[]={id}; resolver.update(uri, values, where,selectionArgs); } produces a query similar to : UPDATE folder_playlist_entries SET sort=99 WHERE folder_playlist_entries.playlist_id=4 AND _id =1; which works fine using RazorSql on the Poweramp database located on a Pc. I guess updates do not work but if someone has managed to do this I would be interested to learn. Hopefully the new Api release has fixed the inserts, deletes and updates.
  2. I am trying to update the Poweramp Playlist from an android playlist. I have the Poweramp database structure Poweramp content:// uris to select from managed to complete the first step which is to add the new android playlist name into the Poweramp playlist table. the actual file name of the track verified that the Poweramp unlock license is installed as it seems that this is what unlocks the dataprovider for Poweramp I need to obtain: the track_number by querying the folder_files tableupdate: 2/8/13. removed most of this post as it was irrelevant. Question is valid though and I think I now have my answer
  3. Clever_man, it works nicely. One small bug, the stop/start icon does not change. it just shows as stopped, even when playing.
  4. Clever_man, just noticed the link for Google Drive in the first post.
  5. @clever_man Link for apk does appear to link to adverts and porn. Can we have a simple and straightforward download link
  6. This is a frequent post. Please note Andre's reply http://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/11025-license-verification/?do=findComment&comment=45090
  7. Click the icon shaped like a croissant which brings up a navigation drawer from the right. now tap the icon under "visualisation". Keep tapping until you see " disabled". It toggles from normal to full screen to disabled
  8. timed playlist backup is a little nonsensical imho. A setting to automatically export to .m3u8 when a. a playlist is created and b. a change occurs on the playlist, does make sense.
  9. @wasatchbl1You do not quite understand how this works. With Marshmallow Google decided to prevent users writing to their sdcards which "broke" most apps. Even now there are apps that do not work properly. They introduced a new framework but even this changed with each subsequent release. This time (Oreo) they decided to substantially change they wsy notifications work. Again developers have to figure out how the new methods work and amend their apps. This takes time and Poweramp will adjust the code but it takes time. No need to get frustrated or angry at Poweramp. As Andre says, Google is the culprit, time and time again. Google own android and simply introduce whatever they feel is necessary leaving developers to catch up.
  10. It would be better if Poweramp reduced its target api by one so oreo users would not be able to run or download it. Deliver the new release first rather than trying to catch up with android releases. On the other hand, depriving users who have oreo of Poweramp is not fair either so I guess the developer cannot win and has to receive comments as posted above.
  11. Some users use exported playlists to upload to music sites. My app has the ability to export Poweramp playlists as delimited text containing just the track details (no path detail).
  12. Poweramp playlists are held in its own database so you will not find them as distinct files. If you do want actual playlist files so you can back them up, you can export them. Settings, Folders and Library, Export Poweramp playlists. When you do this, it tells you where you can find them.
  13. I guess you need to buy it to continue to use it.
  14. Yes, simply click the icon which looks like a croissant, then when you ger the next screen, again click the top icon under the word Visualization, clicking again will toggle from normal to full screen to disabled.
  15. There is a roundabout way to get powrramp on the pc. Developers use Android Studio which allows you to create avd's ( android virtual device) it is essentially an emulation of a device. (A bit like virtual machines such as vmware). You can install pa and its license on it and it will be the same as running it on a real device. I use this to test my app on several different configurations. Both Android Studio and adb ( android debug bridge ) are free,
  16. I assume you are talking about a playlist file with .m3u or .m3u8 extension? If so then any decent file manager can a.find it and b. delete it. Also make sure that in Poweramp you set it to scan only those folders where your music is otherwise it will find anything and anywhere. Settings. Folders and Library, Music Folders. Just tick the relevant ones.
  17. The selection of more than one track is possible but is slightly counter intuitive. First select the function from the menu, eg add, delete, and then simply tick all the tracks one by one. Once done, you can add, delete all. On the sorting, i am not sure in Poweramp. However, i have added a number of sorting options for playlists in my app new playlist manager. Although this app manages android playlists, it has lots of functionality and integration with Poweramp
  18. Google are doing their best to eliminate sdcards so that users will buy their high end devices. So in good tradition, for Oreo they have once again changed things. I encountered tbis problem whilst developing my app but managed to find a solution so that it behaves the same as marshmallow +. For more details stackoverflow
  19. Notifications have changed in Oreo so it will require further coding from Max.
  20. What about the setting in Poweramp, Folders/Library Scanner, switching these off should stop a rescan should it not?
  21. did you manager to restore/rebuild your playlists?
  22. with the current Poweramp API it is not possible. Hopefully with the new version, the API will be updated to allow writing to the Poweramp database.
  23. nkigot, your bycicle is now ready
  24. It may not resolve your issue but I thought I try and provide some background. Under the excuse of "increased security" and providing the user with more control, Google have introduced (from API19) something called Storage Access Framework (SAF) which developers now must use to be able to write to the external sdcard. Instead of opening a normal File object you now need to create a Document using a DocumentProvider. This provider uses what is known as the Picker, the bland User Interface that appears when permissions are required. To ensure all your files (now known as Documents) are writeable, you need to set permissions (the clicking of Select in the Picker) at the highest level relating to your music. It is probably easier to grant permissions for the whole sdcard so anything on it should become writeable. Each app needs to set its own permissions. I find this Picker a little confusing as it may not necessarily present you with the sdcard. Always use the option menu, at the top right (3 dots) to show sdcard. Then select the sdcard on the from the left navigation drawer. Navigate to the top level and click Select.
  25. There is nothing in the powetamp Database to do with favorite songs, ratings is the only indicator. Sorry if you are limping on one foot but your desire for a bycicle was not made clear
