      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.

Poweramp thinks filename numbers are album numbers

5 posts in this topic

Hi, 

Let this be quick, i tried everything, every option, the list shows filenames, which is cool, so does the player ui, but then. The widget, and when I search for album cover myself, it doesn't include the numbers in the song name.

For example : 3000 Miles will show up as miles - artist name

And 2am- artist will show as am-artist

 

And, I don't how the Id3 tags, I even make sure they are deleted, cause I find them annoying.

I see the same thing in both the folders/filenames list, and also in the Player UI, using the latest alpha release, so it does seem to be intended functionality for some reason. Perhaps this might be because a lot of filename-only tracks tend to have a track number at the start, which you wouldn't normally want displayed in the Title field? However I can see the problem with song titles that actually start with a number. For now, I would suggest renaming any files where this happens and you don't want it to with an extra character at the start (e.g. "~2000 Miles - The Pretenders")

The Poweramp database has a table with a field "name without number" which holds the track name with the number stripped off. I assume therefore that this behaviour is intended.

I know that there is a settling for displaying filenames as titles of songs. But I want to use titles from tags normally. Only when the tag is empty I'd like to see the file name, but the whole file name and not without numbers at the beginning as it is now. I have some files without tags which are named as "number - NameOfAlbum" which is totally OK for me till the player deliberately cuts the number of song at the beginning of its name.

Is there in the program such a setting for displaying the whole file name only when the title in the tag is empty, otherwise use the tag name?

No, it's not currently possible to override the name display logic (which is there to remove track numbers from titles, but I agree it can backfire in certain circumstances).
