  1. There are dozens (hundreds?) of bizarre tags available, I doubt PA will ever use them all to be honest. Andre
  2. Too many options for a poll, it's unlikely to give any sensible results as people will want many of them. And no point in including things that have been stated that will never happen (such as Video playback). Andre
  3. Just use the Stay in Queue option, but make sure Repeat is turned off (or to Advance List) in the main Player screen. Andre
  4. At the moment, Poweramp does not support multiple artist names for one song (so the entire name "Ed Sheeran ft. Justin Bieber" would be considered one unique artist name, just like a multi-word band name). In the longer term, it is planned to allow separating multiple artist names in the same way you currently can with Genres. The default is to use ";" or "//" as separators, but that is already user-configurable - simply using "&", "/" or "," is not such a good idea as those exist within existing group names such as "AC/DC" or "Crosby, Stills & Nash". Andre
  5. It does sound a bit that way, but I see why it would be useful to you now. Andre
  6. After Pie has been installed, it might be an idea to reset all the Output methods back to their defaults, as the appropriate settings might now be different. Settings > Audio . Output > Restore Defaults. Andre
  7. Stopping playback (rather than just pausing) would probably reset the shuffle list, yes. You could try making 're-shuffles' less common using the new experimental option in Settings > Library > Lists > No Reshuffle. Andre
  8. You haven't got any Visualisations turned on have you? Otherwise, I'd take it up with the head-unit manufacturer. Andre
  9. Search for milkdrop presets on the web and install them in the folder /Android/Data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/milk_presets/. You may then need to do a Rescan of presets in PA Settings > Visualization. Which alpha version by the way, the code may not be as sophisticated in early releases as it is in more recent releases. Andre
  10. The whole point of that feature in the Player screen menu is to show the currently playing song, but within a different category view (i.e. within a folder, an album, or the artist's other songs). Thus it has to go to a songs list rather than a higher album/etc view. If you want to go up another level though, just tap the Back button. Andre
  11. Repeat mode should be set to 'Advance List' ('List' being the old v2 word for what is now referred to as 'Category'). That way playback will continue on to the next album (or folder,or whatever your chosen listening category is) after the current one finishes. @maxmp We've discussed this a few times, but the 'Repeat' icon options are getting a bit dated now, and the wording needs updating to v3 'Category' terminology. Or better still, could you take the opportunity to add that 'single song playback' option that has been so often requested at the same time? (https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/16724-option-for-stop-after-actual-song/?tab=comments#comment-71539) That would result in six simpler to understand, and more elegant, play/repeat options - only one of which is actually new (the 'one song' option): Play One Song | Play Current Category | Play All | Repeat Song | Repeat Category | Repeat All Andre
  12. No, the Player screen long-press options are meant to show you all of the songs in the chosen category (so Artist shows you all of songs by the currently playing Artist, Album shows all of the songs in the currently playing Album, and Folder shows all of the songs in the currently playing Folder). Which reminds me, @maxmp , as someone who normally uses Folders mode rather than Folders Hierarchy, is there any way that the long-press Folder option in the Player screen view in normal Folders mode, rather than Folders Hierarchy? Setting a song as ringtone was available in the old v2 of Poweramp, but it was not included in the v3 releases as it is more of an OS task rather than a music player one. Andre
  13. You should enable Settings > Library > Lists > Don't Add Duplicates. That will prevent duplicates being accidentally added to the same playlist in the first place. @maxmp That option should really be in Settings > Library > Playlists - it even took me a while to find it! Andre
  14. Do you actually mean Playlists, or Folders? If your new tracks have been ripped and tagged correctly form the CDs, there is no need for either Playlists or CUE files. Which Poweramp Library Category are you using to view your files? As you seem to be desiring to use folder/filename navigation (and presumably all the tracks within each folder have two-digit track numbers at the start of each filename) then just use 'Folders' category and set the folder List Options (using the the three-dots menu in the folder view) to sort the folders "By Path". The actual songs should be set to sort "By Filename" (again, in the songs list, use the three-dots menu > List Options). Screen Orientation can be adjusted in Settings > Look and Feel. Check that the option there is set to Default (which will make PA follow the system orientation, assuming you have that enabled in your basic Android Settings of course). Andre
  15. That license will continue to work with v3 downloads from the website too, in case you come across a skin colour scheme that you like. Andre
  16. PA can cope with track number (of total tracks) as lots of my files are encoded that way. And also disc number (of total-discs). I can't swear how FLACs handle it though, as all of mine are MP3 (so ID3, mostly v2.3, tags) whereas FLAC uses Vorbis tags. [Edit] Just tested it by adding a 'total number of tracks' value to some FLAC files in TagScanner, and the revised files work fine with PA set to sort albums by track#. Andre
  17. Ah, so it's nothing to do with technical specs, features or functionality, but you prefer the paint job. You should completely uninstall PA v3 and any unlocker app that you've installed from Google. Might even be worth deleting the /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/ folder. Then install PA v2 from the downloaded .APK file for build 588 and go through the website-purchase validation process (make sure you have the correct email address set up as an account on the phone, and use the ID supplied in the confirmation email, etc). See the FAQs for restoring purchase status, e.g. http://support.powerampapp.com/knowledgebase/articles/324284-restore-poweramp-purchase Andre
  18. In a situation like that, the Play button should cause playback to commence with the first song in the first folder in the list (with Shuffle mode Off, and Repeat set to Advance List). Then when that is complete, the second folder in that list will be played, and so on. In the above case, all of the contents of "2014. Substances EP" should be played, then all of the contents of "2014. Vacuum EP", etc. Andre
  19. Poweramp only stores and displays certain common tag types. I think Composer is used, but not Work, Conductor or Ensemble. Andre
  20. The 'Play Next' suggestion was not relating to the queue, but instead would cause normal playback - i.e. non-queue - to start playing a new track (just as if you simply tapped on the song title in the list) but only after the currently playing song had finished. Once started, the new song would then become the current playback position and category. Andre
  21. Although v2 is obsolete as far as newer Anrdroid platforms are concerned (and not guaranteed to work forever), for the time being you ought to be able to install and verify the licence on v3, then uninstall v3 and reinstall v2. The licence should just pick up again (you'll need to turn Updates for PA off on your device though, otherwise the store will continue to try to update for you). As you have been issued a refund by Google though, I suggest you might want to buy the version direct from the website instead, which will avoid further auto-updates and should be simpler to validate. See https://powerampapp.com/buy-poweramp/ Out of curiosity, what is the reason you need to use v2 ? The newer V3 should do everything that v2 does, and a whole lot more besides, with a more versatile and easier interface. Andre
  22. The only way to install a skin is from the Play Store or from an APK file (if the developer will provide you with one). If Fiio restrict you from doing that though (they sound like Apple!) then you need to take that up with them - or root your device and regain your own control of it if they refuse. Andre
