    Playlist m3u detection broken since 823 update

    Do all of the 'missing' songs appear in Poweramp's main library views - e.g. All Songs, Folders, Albums. If not, then the problem could be in scanning permissions (check Settings > Library > Music Folders). No song can be shown in a Playlist in PA if that song is not present (scanned) in the main library database first. When you said you created M3U playlists within Poweramp, do you mean you first created them as internal playlists (which is the only way you can do it in PA) and then used the 'Export Poweramp Playlists' feature to create .M3U8 versions? What do the files actually look like if you open them in a text editor, do the paths and filenames match your device's file system correctly? Are there any unusual characters in any of the filenames or paths (international characters, etc)? If so, try renaming any .M3U files to .M3U8. Andre
  4. Indeed it has happened before after an update. Some playlists gone entirely, others wiped (almost) clean. This time no lists have gone but a series of entries in at least one particular list have. This is definitely recent since I often play from this list. I created the list within PA and added to it from within PA. All my lists are .M3U. In the course of the existence of this list I have copied it back and forth to my laptop. Either to make a backup or to restore it after another destruction by a PA update. Not sure if anything changes during this process, don't think it does. In any case, this time round the playlist is still there, only curtailed. Maybe there is something in the following: I also USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP). The reason for this, by the way, is the fact that Poweramp had never implemented HiRes for my Pioneer XDP-100R, though I have asked for it 3 years ago. Anyway, this player also has an issue with playlists on my DAP. It does not show them the regular way. I have to go to the root, tap on a list and watch a conversion/parsing process into something that can be read by the software. I cannot add to a playlist. This parsing has to happen every time. I noticed that one playlist has 250 songs in it in UAPP but only 69 in PA. More playlists have this discrepancy. Looking into it further I also noticed that UAPP does show songs from SD card 1 as well as SD card 2 while PA only displays songs from SD card 2 in the PA playlists with this difference in number of songs. Could that be something? Though it does not explain why one particular playlist has lost a series I have done a full rescan after the update. The cards have not left my player for a while.

    Great tip, thank you Andre. Cheers!

    Fine control over seek

    As I see it, this finer control is due to the rotary nature of the volume control : the perimeter of a circle grows with the distance from the center, so you have finer control if you move your finger away from the knob. With a linear control as the waveseek bar this won't work.

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    Super frustrated. I loved this app back on V2. Now it's beyond awful. Yes, I've uninstalled, restarted phone, reinstalled. CURRENT SPECS: Phone: Samsung Galaxy S9+ Android 9 App version: v3-Build-823-play (full version) Nothing custom other than 128gb micro sd that my music lives on. ISSUES: - High battery consumption. - Crashes (but claims it was killed) - Music ends up with no audio but is still playing DETAILS: Had Poweramp on last phone also, worked perfectly with S8+ and Android 8.0 - got a S9+, also Android 8.0 and things still great. Then v3 came out. I listen to music pretty much every moment I'm not at work. V3 starts crashing occasionally when left on overnight - after 10-16 hours since I start app when I clock out. And sometimes it's still playing but no audio. Media volume fine. Close and open, no audio. IF I PULL MEDIA BACK (REWIND) AUDIO STARTS AGAIN. Weird and annoying, but not worth effort to post here. Then Pie. Battery drained in less than 6 hours, even when app not in use. Google Play Services killing it. Flip out at Samsung. Safe mode has normal battery consumption. Leave safe mode, battery drained too fast again. Meanwhile app keeps crashing, and then complaining that Android is killing it and I need to enable permissions. They're already enabled, and phone is plugged into charger, and at 100%. BS. Half the time after it crashes and lies about being killed I have to start up twice because after the first time it gives killed error it crashes again immediately, and complains about being killed again. Still occasionally audio stops and I have to rewind to get it going. Sometimes I plug in headphones and it doesn't start. On lock screen, if app hasn't been running recently my phone tells me I have to set up a media player, but if it was running recently, app widget is available on lock screen. Now, both Google Play Services AND Poweramp are decimating my battery, and I'm getting complaints about Poweramp using too much cpu. More often than not when I wake up in the middle of the night there's no music. I paid for this app. Not a ton, but it wasn't free. No contact for support except here. Looks like many others have had trouble. Where is the fix at? Really frustrating. Very upset, and uninstalling. Hope this gets fixed so I can use it again.

    Fine control over seek

    I love the volume and other controls in equalizer/effects screens of Poweramp. Especially the fine control provided by moving finger farther away from center of volume knob as I'm "turning" it. Is there a skin or setting that can add this finer control to wave seek and static seek bars? That is, finer control over speed of seek the farther finger is away from bar?

    Go into the Artist view for Pantera, then tap on the three-dots icon and select "Image". You can then choose artwork. If nothing suitable is found and displayed, you can choose an image from your Gallery instead. It works in much the same way as selecting Track artwork. Andre

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    @PAfan unfortunately this is not reproducible on my Pixel 2 XL - Poweramp can plays 16+ hours non-stop (LTE module disabled + Wifi ON) on this device. So this should be something else or something else in combination with Poweramp, as Poweramp is perfectly capable of very long playback and the background playback / audio engine is on the same level optimization or better than v2. Though, of course stuff like hi-res (192khz/24bit) playback require 4x+ processing power (and on devices, not supporting Hi-Res on 3.5 output, like Pixels, it will take even more, as it should resample back to 48khz).

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    hmm, maybe it's related to notifications and how they adjust the volume, I'll try fiddling with those settings

    Aha! That would explain it. I was confusing artist image with album cover art. Duh. Thanks for sorting me out 🙄

    This is strange workaround that works for me (Xiaomi mi5): Set 'silent' mode on phone before entering headphones. With it I couldn't represent this bug, without it bug is represented with probability ~60-80% Maybe it will help someone else

    No new album art only on Artists tab

    Looks to me like there is no Artist image for Pantera at all (nothing showing in the grid view, and nothing in the Artist view). There is however Album Cover artwork for the album Cowboys from Hell. Andre

    No new album art only on Artists tab

    Thank you and I apologize, but I'm still confused. See the three pics in the zip file as an example of art not showing up in the Artists view but actually showing up when drilling in. This is from a Pantera CD rip on my PC, copied to my phone. No album art in my in-folder files. So PA found and applied the art everywhere expected except the one spot. Is this expected behavior? Just seems odd to me that the same one global image file would not be applied everywhere where it made sense (?) Thanks for your patience with what is hopefully not too dumb a question :) wvjTNO.zip

    Poweramp Build 823

    is it just me or we can't set Poweramp as default music player in google assistant anymore? I can play if I ask directly "play whatever in Poweramp", but I want to be able to just say "play whatever" and directly go to Poweramp, wich it should be possible to set up in google assistant's settings>music>music service, but Poweramp is not in the list
  18. The price should be US$3.99, or whatever your local equivalent currency converts to. Andre
  19. Yes , that´s a local popular way of payment (bank slip) Well I will give it a try , it is only 15 bucks anyway. Thanks
  20. Must be a regional thing with PayPro then, on my PC browser in the UK market I see three payment choices: Credit/Debit Card, PayPal, or QIWI (which I believe is a Russian payment system?). If it works for you though, great! Andre
  21. Intriguing that there is a link Buy @ powerampapp.com that redirects to Buy Now, Directly no Google Services required (Poweramp v3) US$ 3.99* Clicking on Buy Now it comes up a form to fill up the personal info and SELECT A PAYMENT METHOD drop down which gives me 3 options , one of them is a bank slip , basically a document with the value and a bar code to pay on the local bank to the local proxy to PayPro Global . I recognize that It seems to be a long shot. I asked friends if I could pay on someone's credit card , I would give to whoever agreed the money. But no one is willing to buy with credit card on the internet due to frauds. Another option would be to buy @ Play Store and pay with Google Play gift card, it happens I can´t find a 15 bucks card , I would be obliged to buy a 50 or 100 bucks. How it is so hard pay 15 (on my currency) bloody bucks ! pS: I´ve just received from PayPro Global <sales@payproglobal.com> Thank you for your recent purchase! Your order has been received and our team is currently processing it. Your order ID is: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx As you have chosen Bank Slip as your payment method, please allow up to 4 business days for this order to be fulfilled.

  22. Hello, I bought two of your skins already. And I like them. But I do miss one of the options that is present in the standard Poweramp skins. I'm referring to static seek bar with wave (static wavebar). Do you have that option implemented in any of your 4 skins? Thank you.

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    Pixel 2 XL (P2XL), Android 9. First, Poweramp (PA) music player is excellent. I've thoroughly enjoyed your top-tier player for over five years and it has been worth every penny. PA v3 is even better, with a modern audio engine, up-to-date look & feel. Except for one major problem: excessive battery usage. For me, this problem is a deal breaker as I often use the player on a daily basis for several hours (4-6 hours daily). I'm highly confident that the problem stems from v3. Unfortunately, I have not been able to determine the root cause. During my recent 10-day evaluation (5 days using v3 build 823 versus 5 days uninstalling v3 and reverting to v2.0.10, build 588), below is a summary of my results: In v3, the average daily battery consumption per hour ~20% according to my battery usage in my P2XL. In other words, after 4 hours of playing time, my phone battery level would be under 25%, even with my "battery saver" mode enabled. In addition, with v3, all suspected options potentially causing excessive battery consumption were turned off/disabled (e.g., scan/rescan, visualization, background, etc.) and my P2XL "battery saver" mode was turned on, plus my screen brightness was lowered to 50%. No Chromecast. Phone gets very warm under v3, not warm at all for v2. In contrast, v2, I simply used all of the Default settings, no battery saver and my brightness was set at 90%. The average battery consumption per hour about 5%. In other words, after 4+hour daily usage, my battery level was between 75-80%. Both results were consistent each day over the testing period, all else being equal. @maxmp, I recognized that you have not been able to re-produce this problem. However, it's clear to me that v3 is causing my battery drainage problem. I'd be more than willing to assist you in any way to resolve this major issue. I look forward to using PA v3 on a regular basis without it draining my battery excessively. Notwithstanding this issue, keep up the good work!
  24. As far as I know, it is not possible to pay by bank slip (whatever that is - is it like a cheque?). The only way to do it is by online payment, so card/PayPal/etc, sorry. Could you ask a friend with regular financial options to do it for you, and give them the money? Andre

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    I found something may be related to this in one usage scenario, but it's related to equalizer visualization UI not always paused (thus, it's not the case of high background battery usage). There are reports (AndroidX/chromecast/google services lib) for rare issue with chromecast detection - disabling Chromecast button in Poweramp Look and feel / Player UI should help with this.
  26. I want to buy the license directly that means PayPro Global involved. I have no credit card and intend to pay by means a bank slip. Sometime ago I asked here and as far as I can remember someone wrote that it may not work. I have no other option , just confirm whether you don´t advise to pay through PayPro. In case I buy directly what exactly you will send me , a key # to unlock ? (by means email ?)
