    Improper handling of Opus files and their tags?

    Other people have reported a few issues with some files tagged by Mp3Tag. Could you perhaps try re-tagging one of the problem files with something like TagScanner to see if that makes a difference? (Just remove the artwork, save file, and then re-load and put the artwork back). Or upload a couple of the problem files and I'll have a look? Andre

    Bluetooth enhancement

    See the options in Settings > Headset/Bluetooth > Audio Focus. Note that if you are using high-res output then volume ducking may not be possible, you would need to have the music pause during other audio output and resume afterwards. Andre
  3. Set 'Repeat' mode (the second icon to the right under the album art) to 'Advance List'. Then, when the last song in a folder has played, PA will automatically move on to the next one. If you want to manually change folders, enable 'Pro Buttons' in Settings > Look and Feel > Skins to get the <<<, <<, >> and >>> buttons back. Andre

    Poweramp Build 820

    Are these internal (embedded within files) cover artwork images? A Full Rescan often helps in such cases, and/or clearing the album-art cache, but if you've done a clear-data and uninstall/reinstall then that should force the same thing. Andre

    Remove some icons

    I do tend to agree with that, Visualisation has too many spread out controls - some on the player screen and some in the Settings > Visualisations menu. It would make more sense if everything was contained in one place (including the Full-screen/Fade/Disable option being in the Visualisations menu) and thus less cluttering of the player interface. In the same way that all the other interface Look-and-Feel elements are in menus, not on the main player screen. Adding a toggle control to the player interface ought to be optional, so people who never use visualisations don't have to see it. Also, I feel Visualisations should probably be turned off by default when you first install v3 (we got a fair few comments on this subject from people upgrading from v2). Andre

    Numbers totals everywhere please. when enabled.

    In list views you can see a content count for each Album/Folder/etc displayed in the list, but I agree more info (including number of items and total running time) would be handy in the info box at the top of each song list. This would be especially useful for Albums, Folders and Playlists/Queue song displays. Andre

    Playlist files are randomly emptied

    Have you seen this happen with playlists where you have not done any editing or manipulation of the list? I've had it happen to me too, but as you only tend to notice after the issue has occurred (maybe days or weeks later) it's hard to tie down a cause. Andre

    Song order lost in playlists

    Are you talking about the Playlist category view? And when you start dragging a track from the bottom of the list to somewhere in the middle, other track ordering gets changed too? Perhaps a video of this happening with a smallish list that can be seen on one screen? Andre

    Track Names Missing

    Those are just local links to your personal Dropbox webpage, won't work for anyone not signed into your account. You need a public share link. You seem to be using the website rather than a local Dropbox app on your PC, so in that case just click the Share button that you'll see when you hover over the filename on the webpage, and then Copy Link.

    Track Names Missing

    Right-click on a file in your Dropbox and select 'Copy Dropbox Link', and paste that into a message here. That's on a regular PC anyway, might be different if you use a Mac or other device. Andre

    Shuffle Drawing From All Folders

    Yes, Search will do that. It needs to, as it could be playing material from anywhere. Andre

    Remove some icons

    When you view the controls with visualisation enabled, you will see the controls for the visualisation too. Andre
  14. Only by using a third-party app designed for that purpose. PA does not support it natively. Andre

    Appears On

    It would need to be optional, as I'm sure there would turn out to be some bizarre cases where you wouldn't want that phrase to cause a split. Andre

    All songs last several seconds cut off

    I just tried this with all crossfade settings set at default (I used the reset button at the bottom of the settings page), and Repeat and Shuffle modes off, which worked normally. I then changed just the Preload slider to 5000ms and the problem manifested itself. I managed to repeat the problem in both Folders and Albums modes, but it only happened the first time I played the final track of an album; if I then scrubbed back a bit and tried again, it then played to the end. @maxmp , it looks like this is a repeatable bug so it should be easier to find now.

    Shuffle Drawing From All Folders

    First, choose the folder you want to play from and tap on the first song you want to hear to start playback. Then (if this is not already set) tap on the Shuffle icon on the Player screen (right-hand side, under the cover artwork) to cycle through the various options. The first one is 'Shuffle All Songs', which would appear to be what you have currently got enabled. The one you want is 'Shuffle Just Songs'. That will shuffle the songs in the current folder only, and only then move on to the next folder in order and shuffle all of its songs, and so on. If you want to stop after the current folder has finished, set the Repeat icon (to the left of the Shuffle icon) to 'Repeat Off' rather than 'Advance List'. Andre

    Problem with Album Arts (Big Library)

    Photos aren't going to be of much help. As @blaubär and I have already said, there is something a bit strange about the sample file you uploaded. PA is not the only program that doesn't recognise the encoding. Andre

    How to turn off resampling?

    Poweramp v3 requires Android 5 or above, so unfortunately there's not much that can be done if you have a KitKat device. You might want to try build 709 from last year, which was the last alpha-test build to support limited high-res features but was still compatible with KitKat. There is no support for it of course, but it might still work for you. Andre

    Poweramp Build 820

    Sorry, still no clearer. You seem to be saying something about audio no sounding right during vocals? Have you tried different output options (such as high-resolution) in Settings > Audio > Output. You could also try turning the DVC mode off, and also adjusting the equaliser to see if that improves the sound for you. Andre

    Crossfade ui

    Unfortunately, for most people, crossfade is an option that they rarely (if ever) even look at, let alone alter, so it really does not belong in the day-to-day controls on the main Player screen. Andre

    PA is designed and intended to ignore .nomedia flags, so they can still be used if you want to tell the Android system scanner to ignore your Poweramp music library (thus avoiding double-scanned content). Instead, Poweramp uses its own internal music folders list (in Settings > Library > Music Folders) which allows you to specify exactly which folders it should (and should not) scan. If you de-select a subfolder, the parent will be marked as deselected too (correctly, as the upper folder is no longer being used in its entirety) but you can manually select as many (or few) of the subfolders and you wish.

    Reading order

    If your files are not tagged (so you can't sort by Album and then Track Number) just use Folders category, with the sorting order for the songs level set to "by filename". To adjust the sorting order further, tap on the three-dots icon at the top of any list and select List Options. Each category and song view has its own sort setting, so it's very flexible. Andre

    Adaptive sampling

    The dev, Max, has said he does not want to introduce this as it will break gapless playback and crossfading, and introduce clicks/noise between tracks as the output rate is adjusted. He suggests you set output to the highest rate you will need and allow PA to upsample lower resolution tracks. Andre
  25. There is no Intel version of Poweramp v3. This was Max's decision as apparently Intel are no longer making mobile chips for Android devices. Andre
