  1. I've seen that too. Where there is a valid ID3v1 tag (but empty) it can override an ID3v2 tag which has contents. Andre

    UI help

    And to return to the library list view from the player screen, just tap on the album artwork area. You will be shown the currently playing song in the middle of the list, and you can use the Back button to go back up the Album, Artist, etc levels. Andre

    Poweramp - Failed to play file! When jack 3.5 mm plug

    Didn't think so (it would always happen with same files otherwise) but I thought I'd check. Andre

    Poweramp - Failed to play file! When jack 3.5 mm plug

    Are the files that are being skipped regular MP3 files? Andre

    Detail Sound

    Poweramp often bypasses a lot of the Android audio options (including bolt-on stuff added by manufacturers) to give a cleaner and more direct audio path. You could try turning off Poweramp's DVC (Direct Volume Control) feature as that give Android some of the processing control back. Andre

    song info displaying incorrectly over bluetooth

    This seems to be a problem with the way some bluetooth devices read the provided info from incorrect fields, see: Andre

    Poweramp Build 820

    For some people it seem to be the Preload for Gapless Tracks that causes this issue, try setting that to zero too. Andre
  8. Your Google Drive links do not have public viewing permissions set so I can't see your examples. PA v2 did not handle Album Artist tags corrects (or indeed at all) and it would group items together into one album when it should not have done. We'd need to see examples to work out the issue here anyway. Andre

    Poweramp Build 820

    Not any more, the original option in v2 (Settings > Album Art > Prefer In-Folder Images) didn't seem to make it into v3. Andre

    Equalizer is being disabled at random

    If I set an EQ value, leave PA (or even reboot the device) and then tap back on the PA icon to start it again, the EQ is still set to the same values as before. Could be an Android 9 issue maybe (I'm using 6.0.1 on my main device). Andre (duplicate threads merged)

    Remove Visualizers Popup

    If you want to have Visualisations displayed, that panel is part of the control system for that feature and it will appear whenever the other controls are displayed. You either need to run the visualisation in Full Screen, or turn it off in order completely, in order to remove those controls. Andre

    Equalizer is being disabled at random

    The equaliser settings are only for Poweramp's output, they are not used by the Android system or any other apps. Andre
  13. PA v2 and v3 are completely different apps, with lots of features changed and improved in v3. The behaviour you describe is what I would have expected (i.e. if you play a playlist from an external launcher, the default action would be to play it in order). The fact that you are running v2 on your other device explains why it behaves differently. To remain in the currently chosen Shuffle mode , please launch the playlist from the library Playlists view.

    Missing tag info on newly-added tracks

    Also, it's worth trying launching one of the tracks from a File Explorer app and see what PA's Info/Tags display shows for the song that way. Andre

    Poweramp Build 810

    I'm pretty sure he was saying that he wants PA's data folders (for artwork cache etc) to be placed on the SD Card, rather than being internal device memory folders as currently happens. Andre
