  1. That works fine for me in PA. Cover artwork and all tags show exactly as expected (apart from Year and Comment, which ffmpeg encode oddly as I said before). The tag portion of this file is identical to the conversion that I did, although there is some difference in the later audio segment (which would be down to different default audio settings I guess). The cover artwork is still encoded as a PNG, which doubles the size from the source JPG image to a daft 17.6Mb. Try doing a Full Rescan in PA, looks to me like your file's metadata has simply not been picked up by the scanner process corr
  2. I doubt it's device-related. Possibly version or settings of ffmpeg or the LAME library though. Personally I would only do that kind of thing on a computer anyway, far too fiddly regularly messing around with command line processes on a small touch screen. Andre
  3. The original FLAC and the ffmpeg (Windows version 4.3.2-2021-02-27) converted copy to MP3 both work fine for me in PA, as does a different conversion to MP3 done in foobar2000 (latest LAME 3.100). The cover artwork in the ffmpeg conversion is hugely excessive though - 3000x3000 17.6Mb PNG; even the original image in the FLAC file is big at 9.6Mb JPG, which is what foobar2000 embeds too. Mediainfo does not even properly parse the ffmpeg conversion. [Edit] The metadata embedded by ffmpeg seems a little strange too - the ffmpeg Year and Comment info in UserDefinedText tags (TXXX) aren't pick
  4. Is it specific skin related, or does it happen with multiple skins? Andre
  5. No idea sorry, that screen shot is unreadable. I assume you are trying to grant permission for the equalizer app? If so, please see Have you also tried Max's new web-based solution? https://powerampapp.com/webadb/ Andre
  6. Sure, you can load any CUE files that exist on your device's storage into a standard text editor, they are just plain text files. For more information, see the second section of Also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cue_sheet_(computing) for the syntax of CUE files (although it's pretty self-explanatory once you open one). Andre
  7. Normally, any downloaded milk preset files should be stored in /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/milk_presets. If there's nothing in there, but you still see them after you've done a Settings > Visualization > Full Presets Rescan, then you'd need to contact the developer of the app that installed them. Andre
  8. Try increasing the buffer size in Settings > Audio > Outputs > (your device type). Are you using hi-res mode? If so, try reducing the frequency setting, or switch back to OpenSL ES. Does this happen with the screen on, or only when the display is asleep? Andre
  9. Does it remain cut out for a long time while the counter carries on incrementing, or is the audio interruption momentary? Andre
  10. If your device has recently been updated to Android 11, please ensure Settings > Misc > File Access Legacy Mode is not enabled. Then revoke any existing app permissions for PA in Android Settings (you may even want to uninstall and reinstall PA) and then re-enable access permissions in Settings > Library > Music Folders. Make sure you grant access to the specific folder you want to use on Android 11, not to the root of the storage location. Then go back in to Settings > Library > Music Folders and tick that same folder to tell PA to scan it. The issue is reported to be f
  11. It's another great Google Android 11 "feature" I'm afraid. Until they fix it, it won't be going away. Andre
  12. Because the sole developer's time is already fully occupied with work on the Android version. You can try to run PA in an emulator environment if you want though. Andre
  13. All you need to do is re-install both Poweramp and the Unlocker app from the Play Store again once you have reset your phone and logged back in to your Google account. Sometimes Google will offer to restore all your previous apps automatically for you, but you might prefer to do that manually instead if the purpose for the reset is to clean out your device a bit. For more information if you have any problems, see: (Note the process may be slightly different if you are still using the five year old Legacy Poweramp v2 - unless you have posted your question in the wrong subforum and yo
  14. Phone, ROM version, PA version? Any recent changes? Have you assigned permissions? Andre
  15. There is a workaround in the meantime by the way, by saving your own image files directly into Poweramp's internal image cache folders. Any Playlist images that you manually select in Poweramp are stored in the folder /Android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/selected_playlist/ (note the underscore before 'com', which is present on Android 10 or earlier, but not for new Android 11+ installations). The image filename protocol is the full playlist name, including its extension if it is file-based, followed by .jpg. Many special characters other than $, dash, comma and dot (so things like
  16. Unfortunately that's not very common, many people would have a bunch of .M3U files in one place rather than them all being in separate folders. I suspect something could be done in the future by looking for sidecar files in the same folder though - so a playlist called abcd.m3u8 could look for a cover image from a file called abcd.jpg in the same folder. Andre
  17. That's good advice generally, there's no point in wasting time scanning areas that you already know don't contain music. That's the whole point of having a Music Folders setting in the first place. I always suggest de-selecting all storage first, then just enable the specific overall folder, or folders, that contains your music. From Android 11 you'll be pretty much forced into this anyway, as its granting access permission system works at the folder level rather than for the whole of a storage medium. Andre
  18. As I said, we'd need @maxmp to comment on this, it may be something he can devise a workaround for if he can duplicate the problem. Andre
  19. No hardware can be damaged while your audio is in the digital domain, the 'sound' is just a load of ones and zeroes at that stage - it'd be like damaging your device by putting too large a number into a spreadsheet. Once sound becomes analogue via an output device though, very extreme volumes could technically become damaging, but you'd really have to be deliberately stupid about it. Andre
  20. That's how I tend to use Bluetooth as well, and indeed most audio signals generally. Full level signal fed between the devices, which on old analogue gear kept the noise floor low, and then adjust the listening volume on the final power amp stage ("power amp" in audio equipment terms, not PA the app). Andre
  21. You do have a volume control. Just because it goes up to 11 doesn't mean you have to push it up that far. If you are playing music at such a high level that you are worried about damaging your audio equipment, heaven help your ears... Andre
  22. But that's exactly what you asked for... If it's now too loud, just turn it down with the volume control, or reduce the preamp setting in the Equaliser, or use ReplayGain if your songs have RG data embedded. Andre
  23. @Si6776 Have you tried a clean re-install of Poweramp since the late Android update? Remember to backup any internal playlists first, as the whole PA setup will be rebuilt. Andre
  24. Using DVC and Bluetooth Absolute Volume at the same time can cause issues, hence Max's suggestion to turn on the "Disable BT Absolute Volume" control in the Android Developer Settings menu. Andre
