      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.    

Standard Android Intent to play track - BUG?

3 posts in this topic

I think this is the right place to post this

I'm using the following code in my application:

Intent playMediaIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);


Uri data = Uri.parse("file://" + mediaURI);

playMediaIntent.setDataAndType(data, "audio/mp3");


When Poweramp is selected from the chooser, it starts to play the track for a split second and then pauses.

Is this a bug, or is there something else I haven't spotted?

Thanks in advance

What is the device/os version you reproduce this issue on? Also what is exactly Poweramp version?

Basically this is intent received by Poweramp when file is chosen in file managers and Poweramp starts it ok, though we've never tested the intent directly.
