  1. From what Max was saying, I assume it's a new interface option that is being introduced within Android 10, so no it won't be on older versions of Android. I could be wrong though. Andre
  2. I just loaded up my ancient Galaxy S3 which still has PA v2 installed on it, and album art download doesn't seem to work via wifi on that either (it used to). All I can guess is that whatever API was being used to scan for images 4+ years ago is no longer available, and while @maxmp has updated all the code in v3 in the meantime to keep it compatible, v2 will no longer be able to access cover art via downloading (other than embedded artwork or images from your own gallery). If anyone else is still using v2 and artwork downloads are still working for you, could you post here? Andre
  3. Max has said it will be available from Android Q (sorry, Android 10). Andre
  4. I used to have a Note 3, but I really dislike the more recent Samsungs with those curved 'edge' displays. When my Note died on me I had to make a quick purchase, and chose the new Samsung A70. It's only a mid-range device, but has a huge 6.7" FHD+ SAMOLED screen, under-screen fingerprint reader, 3.5mm headphone socket (a must for me too), three cameras (OK quality, nothing spectacular though), good 128GB / 6GB memory, massive 4500mA battery with very fast 25W USB-C charging, two-SIM cards plus an SD Card slot. It does everything I need of it, except wireless charging really (but the charging is so fast and the battery so good I don't miss that). The only downside is there is very little development community. It is rootable now, but there has been no ROM development that I know of. However for £369 (UK list price) it's a bit of a bargain. Andre
  5. I think you already have, but perhaps mention it in the Bugs forum too. Andre
  6. It's just started happening to me after an Android Auto update, previously I was getting album art correctly on the car headunit without needing to see it on my phone lockscreen too (which I don't want). Andre
  7. As long as a reshuffle occurs (e.g. stop and start a new shuffled session) then any new songs should be shuffled along with everything else. I'm not sure whether the act of finding new songs and scanning them into the library forces a reshuffle or not though. Andre
  8. You can also set this feature per-category. View any playlist's contents and tap on the three-dots menu icon, then select List Options. You can choose to store/restore the 'List Position' (i.e. which song of a list was last playing) or 'Per Track Progress' (how far into every track you have so far listened). This can be set independently for each listening category - albums, artists, folders, playlists, etc. The other control discussed above is a global setting and affects EVERY track over a certain length, regardless of what music category you are using. Andre
  9. I rather assumed that we were already discussing exporting using UTF-8 encoding (so .M3U8 files), but that MusicBee was not adding the correct BOM when using that format. Could the OP clarify please? Andre
  10. Ah, OK, not sure what that is. I'll move this to the Bugs forum and there is a feature to do what you want, but we need to find out why it's not working for you. Andre
  11. The decoder will (I assumed) decode the originally compressed 16-bit MP3 source material to uncompressed 16-bit audio, then you can select if that should then be upscaled to 24-bit etc. I would have thought the results would be the same either way. But @maxmp could confirm that. Andre
  12. When you are playing music with a visualisation on, there is a little symbol top-right (next to the visualisation name) that cycles through the lock, shuffle, etc settings. Andre
  13. In Settings > Audio > Output, select the High-Res option and enable it for your chosen output device (e.g. Wired Headset/AUX). Then you can choose bitrate and frequencies (some devices only work with lock combinations, some you can change each value separately). Andre
  14. Are you listening using regular or high-res outout modes? Andre
  15. It is the adjustment control for the setting above, "Store/Restore Per Track Progress". If you have the above setting enabled, it means PA will remember the position that you had got to for longer tracks, so whenever you return to that track again PA will go back to wherever you left off listening. You probably only want this to happen on long tracks such as podcasts/audiobooks/etc though, hence the slider control to define what length of tracks PA should remember, versus shorter songs which you would want to start back at the beginning next time you decide to listen to it. Andre
  16. I seem to recall in v2 there was an option somewhere to allow for links which don't support full transfers on slower mobile browser connections, but I'm not 100% certain of that any more. Andre
  17. Hopefully Max could code around this problem now that it is known what Musicbee is doing. If you could upload one of your problem files for reference, I'm sure that would help. Andre
  18. If you add a whole album to the queue, the tracks should be added using the sorting order for the albums songs level. i.e. the order you see the songs listed if you view the contents of the album in the library drill-down. It does depend on which category mode you are viewing in when you do the Add to Queue though (e,g. Folders may have a different song sorting order set compared to Albums) Andre
  19. Try reducing the buffer sizes in the Settings . Audio > Output section, see if that helps. Andre
  20. The email address for support is poweramp.maxmpz@gmail.com, they will be able to reset the limit for you. Do you often update or change your ROM, as each time you do that counts as a new installation of the app - even if it's on the same device. Andre
  21. Are the files scanning into Poweramp's Library but not showing any tag info at all (so all you see when you play them is the filename), or are they not showing up in the library at all? Have you tried a Full Rescan in Settings > Library ? If the same files consistently cause this issue, can you upload a couple of samples so they can be checked? Have you tried correcting the tags in a program like TagScanner or MP3tag to see if that fixes the problem? Andre
  22. Android versions make no difference when it comes to shuffle settings, that all happens within PA. But glad you've sorted it anyway. Andre
  23. As I said, how large (Mb) are the images? You will also kill the cache pretty quickly with that kind of excessive size, even if it does work. Andre
  24. That's the great thing about having Standards - there are so many to choose from. Andre
  25. High-res via 3.5mm jack on Samsung S10 works fine. However Samsung do limit the available output combinations. I think 96k/24bit and 192k/32bit are the generally usable selections. Try resetting output modes to defaults first, then try adjusting. Andre
