      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.

Autostart playing music when Poweramp is started

14 posts in this topic

Please make this small features for us.

Autostart playing music when Poweramp is started.

We need this when we start our car DVD with android.

Poweramp starts but not playing automatically.

(Will be perfect if set to autostart, but this not very important)

Please, develop this.

We bought Poweramp. (sergey04704@gmail.com)

Thank you.

Do any of the autostart playback options in the Headset menu help? Does the device link to the car audio system via bluetooth or by headset cable? Whichever, try setting that mode to "Resume on Connect" in Settings > Headset.

Thank you Andre, but

No. Headset is not connected. It works like with usual phone so this will not work ...

Developers, please, make this small feature.

So how does the sound get from Poweramp to your car speakers? Normally that would either be via cable (headset socket) or via Bluetooth, either of which can trigger playback start.

@sergey04704

Install application called Llama. Then create a task:

- when active application is Poweramp -> Player=Play

... and second task:

- when application Poweramp is closed or in background -> Player=Stop

Great idea, but it's not 100%, it will cause play/pause everytime Poweramp is open from the background... :-/ (also with only first Llama task enabled)

scenario how I'd like to have this feature...  (in mobile phone, but I have this app also in my Android Car audio unit like sergey04704)
start Poweramp
autoplay
back to OS, looking for something else (games, texting, emails...etc),  and Poweramp is still playing from the background
back to Poweramp
and here do not stop, do not pause... continue playing

So the autoplay feature would be really helpful and valuable!

Or how to do it with Llama?
There is play/pause task, not only play :-(
Maybe some workaround, like "don't play/pause when back from the background" ... I'm still playing with it, I've tried several options, but without a results.

Is there any other known option?

Just set Poweramp Settings > Audio > Audio Focus > Resume on Start. That will cause Poweramp to start playback as soon as the app in first loaded, and it won't stop until you tell it to (even if you are doing other things in other apps in the meantime).

To be fair, it's pretty well hidden, took me ages to spot it! :)

You are not the only one, I have been looking for it for hours, and haven't find it, either. ;)

I was about to write a post with the same request, myself ;)

Thanks @andrewilley, that is very useful for car navi.
