      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. Hallo, TL:DR; reverse sorting of albums when using reverse listing does not sort properly. I'm a big fan of listing/sorting albums based on the date the album was add to Poweramp. This works fine with these settings: The list is sorted without reverse, which means that newly added albums will be listed at the bottom. However, I would like to reverse this, so that the newly added albums are on top of the list. But this does not work. Here is what it looks like when the sorting is set to reverse: Bottom of list: Top of list: As you can see, it seems quite random as to how Poweramp sorts in reverse. I would expect it to just reverse the listing, but that does not happen. I think this bug is in v2 as well. P.s., want to dump this thread: Please respond to this request. This should be a simple fix, and it has been requested for 6 years now. Developer does not seem to have any answer to this very simple question.
  2. The Problem: Wenn Browsing for Artists in the Library while having more than a few compliation albums you have a high number of entries which is no fun to browse. We end up with something like 500 artists and i only have a few which have more than a few songs. Now i want to browse through them and see what artist i want to listen to today. The proposed solution: a) Provide an option under "Library">"Artists" that allows for artist filtering "4 or more songs". Either as selectable filter or as entry under Options/Settings>"Folders and Library">"Lists": "Only show Artists with more than xy Songs und Artists" either boolean on off or a field to set the amount that filters. Filtering artists with albums or only search for full albums is not going to help this problem. A Playlist that uses only songs from artists with xy songs is not helping as well since there is no nice way to browse the artists then when you have your library dominated by some genre and therefor the playlists consists half of artist ABC. If you know of an other workaround i'd be glad to apply it. So far i didn't get this set up satisfyingly. ANWAYS, great app and it was the first one i bought. No regrets. Thx for all the work that was put in the development.
  3. new device: Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, Android 7, pa alpha 703 1- in library, sorted for artists: albums with album artist (like VA, various artists,..) tagged so differing from track artist, there is title shown instead of artist 2-while playing title X and looking in library/orders for another track Y, choosing info/tags and than "album art" bottom left, album art of played title X is shown - instead of title Y. sorry, no native English, if I'm not understood I'll make screenshots... regards, mike BTW german translation often showing english
  4. I know that playing songs from Google Play Music, Spotify, Apple Music, etc... could be difficult (or even ilegal). But Google Play Music have a 50.000 size personal songs library where you can upload your "own" songs. It would be really great to can play that songs from Poweramp. I think Poweramp is the best player, but nowadays nobody have all its songs library downloaded in the smartphone (I don't have any), we use any of that streaming services and personally that option with GPlay Music could be the perfect combination to still use Poweramp every day.
  5. Been using Poweramp for some years now on a range of different devices, and it is still the most solid music player available on the play store. There is one feature that I miss however, and that is to reduce the size of the album covers in grid view to allow view more than four albums to be presented at the same time. I have a somewhat large music collection on my device, and even when I'm using genre filtering it is kinda tedious to browse through 50+ albums when only four are shown at once. Allowing to increase the grid size to six or something in the width, would make it much more comfortable to browse when you have a lot of albums. I make a quick illustration in paint using screenshots to visualize what four albums in a row would look like.
  6. Instant crash on library open LS990 Paranoid Android 6.0.1 latest version downloaded from website not Google play. GP version doesn't work either. Please help... logcat_and_device_info.zip
  7. Hi. I rip my large CD collection to play on my phone. I want to see my CD's from Artist, then Albums, then Songs, very standard usage. The problem is that when songs have different artists or co-artists like in a compilation, then the artists names are all over the place and not together in the album. That can be solved by using the Folders view instead of Library. But the bad effect is the artist list is bulky with an ugly empty folder icon for all. That's a quick and unambitious solution for a large app like Poweramp. I can't be the only one ripping CD's wanting to see the albums correctly without having to move Artist->Comment AlbumArtist->Artist. The right solution is an option to have the Library view list by "Album Artist" instead of "Artist". This is very easy to implement ... please! NB: Please explain why I feel alone in the world with this wish - no player I have tried have solved the issue properly, some can't even grasp the problem when asked. I'm sure you can §:o)
  8. When scanning my music folder *.aac files are not scanned and/or added into the library. In version 2 this works correctly. Playing those raw aac files directly (via file explorer) works fine, even album art is loading.

    Poweramp v3 (ALPHA-3 test builds 703 / 704) for standard (ARM-based) Android devices. Released: 16 April 2016 This is alpha version of upcoming major Poweramp release. Please make backup of your existing Poweramp app/settings/db before installation as you won't be able to rollback to Poweramp v2 without alpha uninstallation, causing settings to be lost. You can install it over your existing v2 installation (your purchase and settings will be carried over). At this time, only ARM processors are supported. We'll add Intel support for later beta builds. Min. supported Android: 4.1. Skins are disabled in alpha as UI is partially changed and there is no point in (re-)building skins now. Alpha-3: - added DVC support for Hi-Res Snapdragon 24-bit PCM variant (e.g. LG Gx/v10, HTC A9, etc.) - Hi-Res support for Sony Z3, Meizu 5 Pro, Lenovo Vibe X3 - Look and Feel / Status Bar/Notification / Notification Colors option to override non-standard ROM notification colors - mp3 vbr seeking improvements - 2 Hi-Res API variants (Sony Hi Res and Snapdragon 24-bit offload) for Sony Z5/P - option to always process/send album art (useful for smartwatches) - bt pause/resume polishing - scrobbling fixes, removed obsolete ScrobbleDroid support - album art downloading update - language selection fix - better current output device detection (wired headset vs bt) - other few small fixes
  10. Hi there! My second feature request, which I think would be very useful for people having multiple languages in their music library. Currently Poweramp ignores "the" and "a", if I recall correctly, when sorting the library. Well, that doesn't work for other languages so the final sorting can be confusing for people with more than one language in music titles, artists, etc. Moreover, people like me prefer to take ALL prefixes into account when sorting, I don't mind having all the "The" artists together because I find them faster that way. To make things worse, this ignoring of prefixes only happens when showing albums and artists, but not for songs, which makes sorting quite confusing and unpleasant to use. So, Max, could you please make the list of prefixes configurable and allow it to be empty (so no prefixes are ignored when sorting if the user wants it that way). Of course, if this can already be done in the settings, could somebody point me to the proper place? I can't find it! Thanks a lot!!
  11. Poweramp is my favorite mobile music player, but it lacks one thing that my favorite pc music player has. In foobar, I can sort my music anyway I want. For years, I've sorted my music by artist, with the songs underneath their name, like so: I may be the only person in the world who sorts their music library like this, but I'm already used to it. I also think that many other users will find the ability to change the way your library is viewed and layed out, will make the transition from their home music player, or another android one, to Poweramp much more comfortable. I've already tried finding other music players that allows for this level of customization, but there isn't any. Poweramp could be the first and only. I don't mind it being a pro feature.
  12. I bought Poweramp app and I have plenty of one music artists, which I never want to see when selecting an artist to play. More songs I have from a given artist, usually more I like him/her. To do that, I need to order artists by number of songs.
  13. i would love to have a miniplayer on the bottom of the app, so that when you are browsing through your music, you can play/pause/skip the song an read the title/artist/album. the miniplayer could be placed instead of the folders/library bar (which I even don't use). in my opinion the folders/library ooption could be moved to the 3-dot-menu. it would be so great to have such a minplayer.
  14. Доброго времени суток, Макс! Я заканчиваю создание скина на основе шаблона skin_classic и некоторые моменты оставляют вопросы, которые сам я решить не смог. Очень надеюсь на твою помощь! Первое. Когда начинал делать скин - я вообще плохо представлял - какое изображение куда встанет в теме...поэтому и не понял, что многих элементов интерфейса в папке res просто нет. Я говорю о изображениях: иконка альбома, повтор, перемешать, эквалайзер, тон\громкость(на главном экране), для эквалайзера всего одно изображение(matte_knob_thumb) О том, как кастомизировать список библиотеки я уж и не говорю... Второй момент. Цвета шрифтов. Я установил какие строки кода отвечают за изменение определенных элементов. Но проблема в том, что в основном - одна строка кода отвечает за несколько элементов интерфейса. Например: меняя цвет текста под полосой прокрутки(информация о битрейте и частоте) - меняется цвет текста в левом углу matte_eq_bg.9 Как настроить свой цвет под каждый из этих элементов(и не только этих.)? Что касается цвета цифр под полосой прокрутки (продолжительность трека и пройденное время) то их цвет я так и не смог изменить. Не нашел, где. Третий момент. Я тестирую тему телефоне с достаточно небольшим экраном(где-то 640х480, наверное так) и там все просто прекрасно выглядит, опуская вышеописанные элементы. Все было хорошо, пока я не протестировал тему на планшете.. Там все вовсе не так хорошо. Особенно расстраивает обрезанная кнопка воспроизведения. Я понимаю, что дело тут, видимо в том что для разных разрешений нужно делать отдельные элементы, и располагать в соответствующих папках drawable-***. НО. ведь примеры есть только в drawable-hdpi - в котором я собственно и работал. А для других разрешений? Хотелось бы узнать какая папка для каких именно разрешений предназначена. И собственно - примеры элементов интерфейса для каждой папки - как для drawable-hdpi. Вроде бы все пока... Больше пока не вспомнил. Падаю спать - весь день за скином.) Очень надеюсь и нуждаюсь в подробной помощи, Макс! И будет твоему плееру прекрасный скин!) Надо сказать на порядок качественнее, чем остальные пользовательские "скины"... выпущенные ранее.
  15. In the FAQ concerning external SD suppoprt, it says "At this moment, we don't have requests for allowing root to the music app, as Poweramp, but if we get more requests, we can add this." I'm here to formally request this. I have a wireless SD card mounted as a CIFS share mounted in a /mnt folder, since mounting it to /sdcard/[whatever] does funny things with the way mounting is implemented in Android, like only certain things can see it. Poweramp did see it for a bit, but unless I'm on a fresh reboot and everything, it doesn't. Root Explorer can see the contents, but any other app it just shows up as empty. Mounting to a global root folder like /mnt/externalsd works much better, as everything can (potentially) see it. I'd love to see the ability to browse root folders to add to the library in Poweramp. I'm almost desperate -- if there's any way to compensate for this, like a nice donation, I'm willing to do so for this feature, as no one else seems to have it. VLC is indexing my library right now but it's still in beta so it's not going to be great, I can already tell. Thanks for your work!
  16. Android 4.3 on Samsung Galaxy SIII and Poweramp 2.0.9 build 558-play (Full Version). Everytime I add music to my external Sd card (I switch the phone off, I add music from a PC and restart the phone) if I try to listen to a single Disc or a Playlist (even the "last added" playlist) it ignores me, plays the first song (the one i clicked on) and it goes on playing the whole library ignoring my choice (so instead of 1/12 on the low right corner i find 1/2644). This is frustrating. The only way to fix is to "DELETE DATA AND CACHE" in the Phone /Settings but in this case I lose all my rating, playlists and so on. It also happens on my wife's phone (same SIII, same Android Version and same Poweramp version). Some suggestion?
  17. I only recently discovered I can exclude / include list items in my library screen. So when I press Library I am given a choice of Artists, Albums, Genres, etc... And I've gone and pressed menu, then gone into List Options. It would be very cool if we could also re-order these items. That's my suggestion.
  18. I recently started getting issues with my Poweramp. I've had it for little over half a year and liked it quite a bit when I first got it and bought it right away. I've added new folders of music to my general music folder used for Poweramp and when I perform a rescan my library doesn't update and I have the same number of songs. I've tried changing the folder in which the songs are in and I've added and deleted and re-added the songs multiple times with no avail. Does anyone know a fix for this problem? Edit: Got it fixed. Just clear the app data in settings
  19. With disk and other storage space plentiful and cheap, I decided to switch to a lossless audio format for all of my future ripping and downloads, and picked FLAC. (You're welcome to knock my choice if you want, but that's not the reason for this note.) Background info: I'm ripping CDs on a Win 7 machine and uploading to a Samsung Galaxy S3 (for now; the point is to have a file format that I can keep around for years and be able to play on just about any machine, now and in future). The Galaxy S3 is the Poweramp machine that's giving me trouble. I'm running V2.0.9, build 534, in paid mode. I downloaded dBpoweramp to create the FLAC files, ripped a Vivaldi CD, and uploaded to the S3. Poweramp refused to recognize the album or tracks, even though it has no trouble recognizing MP3 albums and displaying them in its library as soon as I transfer them. However, when I located the files in a file browser on the S3 and clicked on a track, the file browser offered to let me open the track in Poweramp (and five other players, of course) so I did, and Poweramp played the track just fine. Also, when I clicked on the Poweramp menu and then on Info/Tags, Poweramp displayed full metadata including the album name that it refuses to bring into its library even after multiple scans and full rescans. After some experimenting around, I discovered that I could get Poweramp to bring my FLAC album into its library list by going to the Android application manager, deleting ALL of Poweramp's data, and re-building my library listing (not the audio files) from scratch. (No, Poweramp's re-scan did NOT work.) You might think that, with one FLAC album now in my library, I wouldn't have the same trouble bringing in another one, but No, a second album didn't incorporate into the library until I did the Android application-lobotomy trick again. So, I can now build and use a library of FLAC albums but only at the cost of re-setting all of my options by hand after every addition. Yucko. One last thing to note: I use the Windows file browser to drag-n-drop the album (directory) from the PC to the S3. When I transfer the MP3 album, it just goes, but when I transfer the FLAC album, it asks me if I want to convert all of the files since my phone won't play FLAC files. (Well, it wouldn't if I didn't have Poweramp, but the transfer facility is kind of dumb.) So I say No, Don't Convert and it (presumably) transfers all of the files intact. The Poweramp metadata display confirms that they're FLACs, but if the transfer facility is also doing something to set the album up for cataloguing, it would be happening for the MP3s but not for the FLACs. So - Have I discovered a bug, or did I overlook some simple setting that would let those FLAC albums slither into my library without getting hung up? Is anyone else out there using FLAC files with a Galaxy S3, with or without trouble? Suggestions appreciated. Thanks! -- Glimmersdad
  20. Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 OS: Android 4.3 Stock (rooted) Poweramp: 2.0.8 build 521 The Library button in the library/folder section does not work. Clicking the folder button works, showing the folders in the view specified but clicking the library button does nothing except go to the highest hierarchy in the folder (therefore showing all folders in the current view). The indicator is still on the folder.
  21. Latest full version of Poweramp doesn't respect .nomedia files. I am new to this program and I thought it would only add songs to the library. Instead, it added almost all media files on my sd,even media files from games. Stock and other music players only add songs. Am I missing something in the options?
  22. For explanation 4PDA forum: http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=194117&view=findpost&p=20920377 MaxMP and Poweramp users, what do you say? I think would be a handy feature.
  23. I would like to be able to play a subset of my library. Specifically, on the Library view, I'd like to be able to play all Recently Added tracks, and shuffle between them. Same for Top Rated. It would work with an extended press on "Recently added" in tha same way it does with Albums. TIA!
  24. Hi, I'm using Poweramp 2.0.7-build-515 Full Version on a HTC Desire Z ( Android 2.3.3 with HTC Sense 2.1 ). I have a number of tracks where the artist tag is "Artist X (featuring Artist Y)" on albums by Artist X In Poweramp library artist view this is shown as differing artists e.g. Artist X, 9 tracks Artist X (featuring Artist Y), 1 track The tracks are from the same album & the album artist for all tracks is "Artist X". I would like there to be a setting to choose whether you use Album Artist tag in preference to the Artist tag. Many Thanks
  25. When I scroll through my music and play a track, I'm really not interested in looking at the album art. No, I want to stay in the list I'm at and may be change track or whatever. Please just have an option of having the player in the bottom of the screen when looking in folders/library/playlists and just keeping the view unchanged when clicking a new track. Or have a small play button on every track for playing the track while keeping the list view. Thanks for the great sound /spejr
