    Save as - queue

    One remembers just the current song name in each Playlist, the other remembers the last-played position within each song. Andre

    Fine control over seek

    The default (dynamic) seekbar allows seeking by a few seconds with small movements, but whole screen width can cover around 50% of a track. I thought it was a progressive scale the more you moved your finger, but you are right that it does seem to be a linear range. Andre

    Save as - queue

    While you are viewing any Playlist in the library screen, tap the three-dots icon and then List Options and you can set both Per-List and Per-Track position saving. This setting is individual to each library category view, so if you change it for Playlists it won't affect Album, Folder, etc views. Andre

    Volume returns back to 0 when on Bluetooth

    That person had issues with DVC/lowered gain levels on a Samsung 9.0 Pie device (which is covered in a number of threads, and is a Samsung ROM issue) and also the output device being misnamed. The mis-naming issue is a problem usually experienced when you are outputting using the experimental high-res audio feature (or possibly the increased step volume settings). Try turning both of those off (start with resetting Audio Output to defaults). They did not however experience the system volume level being set to zero when they start the app. A few other people have noted the zero-volume issue though, mostly described as happening when they try to adjust the volume and they find it jumps back to zero first. In your case, this is happening every time you start the app though, yes? It would be worth trying a clean start and see if the problem persists (uninstall the app and re-install, or clear data in Android app management. You might also try deleting the data folder /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/ too between installs). If you have any PA playlists that you need to keep, please export them first though. Andre

    Add in support for srt files.

    Technically .SRT is a captions/subtitles file, used for captioning video material, but you're right that it can also be used for audio-only files too. .LRC is more commonly used for song lyrics. Lyrics can also be embedded inside the ID3 tags of audio files (SYLT for synced text, USLT for simple longform text). Poweramp supports this form of lyric, but it cannot display the text dynamically in time with the music. Andre

    Fine control over seek

    The dynamic seekbar that was introduced as the default in Poweramp v3 was developed to operate in a similar fashion. Small movements scrub forward or back by short distances, and the wider the finger movement, the larger/faster the seek distance. The alternative (static seekbar, like the v2 bar) is a more simple linear control from end to end (fully to the left moves to the start of the track, fully to the right moves to the end, and proportionally anywhere in between). Not so much help for precise navigation in longer tracks of course. I have both bars enabled on the same screen (this is a skinnable feature, see the Skins subforum) Andre

    v3 build 823 - High Battery Consumption

    Yes, please, otherwise threads can get a bit muddled. The closing might (ironically) be caused by Android power-saving features being too aggressive. Andre
  8. I would certainly expect to see a corresponding UP event at the end of a button press. The app that I use for the exact same purpose (headset cable track changing) shows button DOWN and then UP. Andre
  9. Are there corresponding ACTION_UP ending events to match each ACTION_DOWN? Andre

    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

    No new album art only on Artists tab

    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

    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
  13. The price should be US$3.99, or whatever your local equivalent currency converts to. Andre
  14. 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
  15. 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
