      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.

Tasker intent to select a playlist

7 posts in this topic

I asked elsewhere but think it may be in the wrong forum as no response.

Does anyone know how to select a playlist using a tasker intent? I can start and stop Poweramp, but not select a specific playlist.

hans

perhaps this gives you some ideas. It launches  Poweramp playlists

I do not use Tasker but posted the java code (in the link above) that does launch Pa and plays a playlist. Perhaps you get some clues from it.

Hi,

I've found a way to interrogate the current playlist in Poweramp V3 (through Tasker), and then if it needs changing send an intent (through Tasker) to change it. If anyone is still interested in how to do it let me know and I'll post the actions...

Regards

Rowan

I can get playlists to run, but it stays in the playlist. Do you know how to bring it back to the player view after the playlist is selected?

I'd like to come back to this topic...

I installed and registered Poweramp especially for being able to start it with a designated playlist and I want it to play from the beginning of the playlist.

Unfortunately, all the examples did not really help me. I checked the command reference in the java api, I tried to use these examples.

I have only one playlist which was created with Poweramp.

Regardless what combination of ending parameters in

content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists

I use with command 20, I get random results. Rarely it starts or resumes the playlist or it plays anything else.

I tried

/0
/1
/1/files
/1/files/0
/1/files/1

all without success. Which content parameter do I need to start a specific playlist created with Poweramp with the first title of the playlist?
