  1. Poweramp saves artwork images as %Artist%.jpg into the internal storage folder /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/artist_art/. They would be matched with the %Artist% tags, not "%AlbumArtist% tags. Not sure what sort of rescan would be needed to pick any new or updated files though, or if it's done on-the-fly. Andre

    Batch tag editing

    Any proper MP3/ID3 style tag editor ought to work. I use TagScanner, but I've heard good things about MP3TAG too. Andre

    Failed to read/write settings file - Android Q

    I've not tried Android Q, but I know it does mess around (again) with storage configurations. Does that exact path descriptor exist on the device if you check in a file explorer? Andre

    Poweramp does not support DLNA casting. It does support Bluetooth audio and Chromecast output, if your TV offers either of those features? DLNA is on the longish-term to-do list. Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Why? It would allow you to view your Poweramp playlists and convert/save them, which is what you seem to be having problems doing in the native interface for some reason. Could you show us the files created by the example we mentioned before - i.e.create a sample 6-song internal playlist within PA and export it to M3U8, then add three new songs to that internal playlist and export it again, which you said corrupts the saved file. The two M3U8 files will be small text files, so you can just paste them into a message here, or attach them as files if you think the content is not being faithfully reproduced by the forum software. Then maybe Max can take a look at them for you. Andre

    LCARS Trek Skin for Poweramp V3

    The only thing it needs now is the correct iconic narrow block-caps font, based on Swiss 911 Ultra Compressed I seem to recall, but that might be a taller order I suspect. [Edit: Out of curiosity, I've just hunted through all my old archive folders to see if I can find the master files for the Official Star Trek Next Generation Poster Magazine which I edited, and mostly wrote the copy for, in the early 1990s. I used an LCARS look on some of the articles. However they must be on old backup CDs that are tucked away somewhere, I hope I haven't lost them] Andre

    In the songs list - i.e. the first view you see when you tap on the cover artwork in the player screen - there is only one three-dots icon, which is near the top/right of the list's header section. That is the icon you need to tap to access the List Options menu for things like per-track memory, sorting order, and view mode. List Options can be set independently for each category type by the way, which is presumably what happened to you. There are no 'per-song' three-dots icons though, just the ability to long-press on a song title in order to see its specific setting choices and/or to multi-select songs. Glad you sorted it anyway. And don't worry about the video, don't think it makes a big difference in the grand scheme of data storage. Andre

    Have you perhaps got per-track memory enabled in the List Options for that Category's songs level? (tap on the cover artwork, then use the three-dots icon to get to List Options) Andre

    LCARS Trek Skin for Poweramp V3

    Ah, eighties LCARS graphics as developed by Messrs Okuda and Probert. Still looks funky today. Andre

    Xiaomi mi Band 4 support.

    Perhaps @pwamps can offer some information about how it is working for them on the same device, or what you are doing differently? Andre

    You can download your purchased tracks or albums from Amazon, they will then be stored inside a local folder on your PC's hard drive. As far as I recall, the folder is not always very easy to find (not as simple as just looking in the the system's 'Music' folder) but once you've located it, copying the files out is easy. Sometimes you may find that music has been digitally copyright-protected so it only plays using appropriate 'DRM' (Digital Rights Management) software, but mostly they should be fine though. I've downloaded lots of my purchased MP3s from Amazon (for example the free digital copies that they provide when you buy a CD) and the files have been cleanly playable on anything, on any device. However if you are only using the free general streaming service in Amazon Prime (rather than buying specific tracks/albums individually) then you won't possess any physical audio files on your PC, as it just plays directly from Amazon's cloud, in which case you'd need to use Amazon's own app to hear them on your phone too.

    Skin Update Required

    What skins don't work? Obviously they will need to be v3 skins if you are using v3 of the app, or v2 skins for the v2 (legacy) version of the app. I assume you have v2 on an older device, given that you are posting in the v2 subforum. Skins are not developed by the Poweramp team though (apart from the selection of included ones) so any issues you need to take up with the third-party developer who wrote them. Andre
  13. The option in Settings > Library > Store/Restore is for saving the position of long TRACKS, not specifically for remembering playlist positions. Try going into the view for that Playlist (Library > Playlists > name-of-list) and then tap on the three-dots menu icon. You can enable or disable memory for 'List Position' and 'Per Track Progress' specifically for playlists only there. Andre

    Check that you have got Poweramp set to keep service running and use wakelock (in Settings > Misc) Andre
