      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. I've been developing a companion application for Poweramp using its developer API https://github.com/maxmpz/powerampapi Unfortunately I've been stuck with retrieving artwork through the API. I can successfully listen to the "PowerampAPI.ACTION_AA_CHANGED" broadcast and I can get the URI or the Bitmap from the given intent, this is working fine (I can display the artwork for the currently playing track), however I would like to get the album artwork for any track, not just the "currently playing" track. In my companion application I am listing the following: All Songs (files) Albums Artists Genres Playlists Queue Top rated (top_rated/files) Recently added (recently_added/files) I can successfully get the folder_id from the files and from there I can get the folders.thumb for the file location of the artwork, however this location doesn't seem to work for me. Is there an easier or simpler way of getting the album artwork?
  2. 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.
  3. Okay, SO since I jumped ship from the itunes world in 2009 etc.. I've been on Android Poweramp, however I'm finding there is a recent library artwork problem. I added a new album which has maybe 50+ tracks, and all the artwork in the whole library/albums view of the whole player, all albums have been replaced by this one album's artwork. It seems to persist after a re-boot, after a cache clear and re-download etc. its a long V/A various artists album. I have prefer IN folder artwork checked , and when I play a specified track it still has the correct artwork on the player screen + and on the android 'desktop' player widget which is A++ okay. However, it's a drag to not be able to visually 'LOOK' through the albums, especially driving, because it all looks like its the same, one album now. Definitely a bug and potentially easy fix, id hope? Anyone Experience the same ?
  4. It's pretty annoying that a lot of suggesteded artworks are in 16:9 format even though there actually are square images matching the tags. It would be great to have an option to force view only 1:1 found artworks. I think increasing/erasing the limit of the shown found images would be also very helpful.
  5. Hey, I just got this player and so far I'm loving it. The only thing I can see that it's missing is that when browsing the Library by Artist, no album artwork is displayed; just a generic icon. This seems a little odd, given how common this feature is in other media players, to the point where I'm wondering if this is a bug? If not could you consider adding this? Thanks for the great music player!
  6. EDIT: Solved! Thanks! Downloading the version above fixed it Greets I use Poweramp to play my flac collection and have manually added folder art for each album as "front.jpg" or "cover.jpg" placed in each folder. I don't use id3 tags because they never sort properly. I prefer to sort by folder path with a subfolder for each album. That's why I use Poweramp on Android and Foobar2000 on windows. Up until the most recent versions (I believe there were 2 updates) folder artwork has been broken. I recall it being since the update stating that *.pamp files were no longer used to cache folder art. After this update it broke completely. Cover artwork in the player still works fine without any issues, it's only when displaying folders. I've tried to change all the different album display settings, clear app cache, uninstall and reinstall, manually delete android\data\player folder but nothing works. I even tried to enable automatic downloading artwork but that didn't work either. I ended up with some albums correct but most duplicates of one album art for every folder. I think there is also another bug in the code with iterating loop where you retrieve album art. Could you please make it a priority to repair this feature? Is there any download where I can find the old apk version which used the *.pamp cache system? The *.pamp cache system wasn't perfect but atleast when it bogged up I was able to manually delete the pamp file to force a refresh. Now it won't work at all.

  7. I have a problem with the Artwork Auto Download. It seems to only search based on the artist and album's name. This works fine for albums, however, I have collections of Single Charts, where the album is named something like "German Top 100 Hits". Now I keep getting artwork images for the "German Top 100" for all singles in this charts album. Is there an option where the search can be modified to search upon the song's name and artist's name instead of the album's name?
  8. Anyone have a similar problem with this app on other XHDPI devices or other high-resolution screens? The embedded artwork is sharp and high quality but it appears blurry in the Now Playing screen in Poweramp. Please note that while I have the art currently magnified at 1.12x, it is similarly blurry at the original 1.00x setting. Here is a screenshot from my device (1920x1200 resolution) http://i.imgur.com/aKMXcDg.png Here is what the embedded album art in this file is (1080x1080 resolution) http://i.imgur.com/L2fnuCH.jpg edit: I would post the images directly but they are very large and it doesn't seem like this board software automatically resizes posted images into thumbnails. Is there any way to fix or alleviate this issue? Thanks!
  9. Hello, I just got a new phone and after getting it all set up and all the data transferred over, I launched Poweramp and found that my ratings and cover art are no more. My music folder is on an SD card, and I used Titanium Backup to backup Poweramp and its data. Here is where I think the problem is: the path to the SD card on my old phone differs from that of my new phone. /mnt/sdcard vs. /mnt/extSdCard. So after the first launch, Poweramp can't find the music folder and I then have to tap select folders and check the music folder. After this my music files are located and ratings and cover artwork are gone. What can I do to remedy this problem? I have rated my tracks and customized cover art for at least one year, I don't want to do this all over again. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Hi - I'm using this app on my Xoom and love it! I'm running 3.2 Honeycomb and keep the Poweramp app up to date. Ever since I started using the app, I noticed that the artwork gets messed up when I'm browsing the library. When I start browsing, the artwork appears OK. But as I browse more and more albums, I'll find artwork from previous screens in the albums being viewed. My library is made up of mp3 files with embedded artwork. Some albums have artwork, others don't. They are encoded with LAME. My library is on an SD card. Has anybody else seen this? Any solutions/work arounds? It's minor, but it would be nice to see this fixed. Thanks!
