    Still no way to disable fade-in

    Moved to the legacy forum. There will be no further development of Poweramp v2, however please feel free to provide more test results in the v3 bugs forum if you are finding it there too. Andre
  2. All of those options are already available (widget-style shortcut to launch a playlist, and you choose and start a playlist from within the app too) Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Your original post described that when exporting playlists, any newly added files were not added to the exported M3U8 file: You later said you could no longer reproduce this problem. Is this problem still happening when you create a new internal playlist and try to export it, or not? And if it's different, what is the new problem? I will be able to look into this further when I return from vacation at the end of the month so please do not expect any detailed responses from me until then, although Max may be able to help in the meantime.

    Error exporting playlists

    Hello... Hello... Hello... (some forums ban users for continually bumping threads, but luckily not this one) And please see (and reply to) what I posted before - which is, if you can no longer reproduce the problem that you originally described, can we assume your issue can now be considered solved?

    "Stop after current" with Timer

    What you are asking for is a Play One Song feature, which is something that a number of people have asked to be added to the Repeat modes in the past. Andre

    Poweramp Build 840-841

    Personally I feel that each new Android release gets closer and closer to the Apple philosophy or "we will tell you how it now works, and you will like it" (SD Card access keeps getting worse and more restrictive too). Which was precisely the reason I went with Android rather than iPhones in the first place. Andre

    5.1/7.1 channel surround sound support

    A bit puzzled here, how are you planning to listen to 7.1 speakers on a phone? Or do you mean mixed down to stereo for listening via the headset, which I believe is already possible for AC3 encoded files, etc. Andre

    automatic track gain system

    At least for the moment, Poweramp's chosen volume leveling method is ReplayGain, which as you say does require the tracks to be tagged correctly in the first place. RG doesn't mess around with the dynamic range of the music as much as on-the-fly normalization does. Andre

    Just thought I should mention that I'm on vacation at the moment, so won't be able to respond to posts as normal. I'll drop by every few days via the laptop, but will deal with most stuff when I return. Andre

    Thumbs up rating in Android Auto

    Might be an idea to make the extended buttons user-selectable. For example I'd really like next/prev list. Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Then if you cannot reproduce the original problem by creating a new internal playlist and exporting it, then adding some songs and exporting it again, can we assume the original issue is now resolved? Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Changing the filename of an already-exported M3U8 file will have no effect at all on the internal playlist that still exists within Poweramp. Once exported, the file is a completely separate entity, think of it a 'snapshot' of the playlist as it existed at the moment when you backed it up. You can of course re-scan any M3U8 file(s) back into Poweramp by leaving the file(s) in a location that PA is permitted to scan for music, but that would not be a good idea as you'll end up seeing two copies of every playlist (the original internal one, and also the file-based backup copy). To avoid this happening, make sure that the location where Poweramp creates its backups (usually /Playlists/ in internal storage) is NOT ticked within the scannable folders list in Settings > Library > Music Folders. I have my 'real' folder for manually create M3U Playlist files on my SD Card, in a scannable location along with the rest of my music files. Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Before this thread started going off on confusing tangents, you described your problem as follows: 1) You create a playlist within Poweramp (i.e. an internal playlist) and then use the 'Export' feature to make a backup copy of it as an .M3U8 file on your device's storage. You said this worked OK. 2) You then added a few extra songs to the same internal playlist, but when you later tried to Export it again (to make a new/updated .M3U8 backup file) not all of the new songs were saved correctly to the new .M3U8 file. That is what I am trying to help diagnose for you, not re-loading or editing existing .M3U files. So please could you do steps 1 and 2 above, giving each .M3U8 file a different name, and post the contents of the first file and the second file so we can see what is going on. Screenshots of how the playlist looked in the Library view before you did each Export would be handy too. Andre

    Imbeded covers

    Same here. Anything batch oriented, or involving pretty much any typing at all, is not a task for a tiny touch-screen. Andre

    Imbeded covers

    Poweramp's downloaded cover art JPEG files can be found on your device's storage in /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/album_art . Each image file is named to match the music file that it refers to. You can find artist images in a similar artist_art folder too. Andre

    Error exporting playlists

    Well at the very least do what I asked but with a bigger internal list? Use completely different names for each exported file (maybe rename the internal list each time?) and show the results of the initial 'good' export of an internal playlist, and then the second (with a new filename) export after you have adding a few songs.

    Imbeded covers

    I use Exact Audio Copy, but there may well be better ones out there for metadata sniffing (I use it as it creates very accurate rips). Andre

    Poweramp not working...

    If you provide any information, someone might be able to help you. Just saying "this is a complete joke" doesn't really allow anyone to assist. Andre

    Play only searched songs

    Are you using the latest version of Poweramp (build 840) ? Andre

    Song Name opacity option

    You may find some third-party skins offer what you want. Andre

    Poweramp unlock version Limit

    No idea, what Poweramp version, where did you buy the licnece, what phone/Android version, etc. Andre

    OpenSL ES hi res output+dvc

    Most device's internal manufacturer-installed processing tools (such as equaliser) will not be used for high-res output methods. DVC will normally be enabled by default if the device/OS support it. You could try setting all output modes to default settings in Settings > Audio > Output. Andre

    Imbeded covers

    Yes, that was what I understood your question to mean, however this is not currently available in Poweramp, and as I said in my first reply the developer is rather reluctant to implement it for the reasons given above. I think there are other programs that can do this sort of thing though (my main CD ripping program searches the net for suitable images and offers to embed them as part of the MP3 creation process). Andre
  24. Poweramp does not work like that. It is a Library-based player and thus needs to scan all of your music (including embedded title/artist/album/genre tag data, cover art, etc) into its database in advance to allow the whole collection to be handled and displayed in a variety of ways, with different sorting and playback orders, repeat modes, etc. It is not designed or intended to handle regularly changing music sources, large networked or remote data sources, streaming audio, etc. If you just want to play one individual single track, as long as it can be read in your Android device's file system then you can do so by launching that file into PA using a file explorer app. However PA won't associate it with anything else, and won't know what to do after it finishes (it will revert back to the All Songs music list from its database).

    Add "been played" option to shuffling

    If you have Repeat enabled, a reshuffle will occur when all of the songs in the current sequence have been played. i.e. each repeat session will have a newly randomised order. To avoid the possibility you might hear that final song again immediately (I assume, anyway) the final song of the old order will be treated as track '1' of the new shuffle order, and playback will continue at position '2' in the shuffle sequence.
