  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Same here. Anything batch oriented, or involving pretty much any typing at all, is not a task for a tiny touch-screen. Andre
  5. 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
  6. 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. Andre
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Are you using the latest version of Poweramp (build 840) ? Andre
  10. You may find some third-party skins offer what you want. Andre
  11. No idea, what Poweramp version, where did you buy the licnece, what phone/Android version, etc. Andre
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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). Andre
  15. 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. Andre
  16. What do you mean by "When I input the Google purchase receipt it takes me to download page for v3."? Have you read this post, which might be the same issue you face? Andre
  17. Out of curiosity, and in case it helps anyone else in the future, what was the problem? Andre
  18. Great, checking the Settings > Library > Music Folders list and ensuring only the folders that you need are ticked would have been my next suggestion, but you've already sorted it. Andre
  19. Please head over to the Skins and Themes forum, which is how you make the sort of changes you are asking about. You can also change your system font if you want (but that would affect your whole device, not just Poweramp). Andre
  20. Making any changes to shuffle mode, or manually starting a new track from one of the Library screens will reset the shuffle order. Changing Repeat mode will not trigger a re-shuffle, nor will using the >>, <<, etc next/prev track buttons (nor will swiping left/right on cover artwork, which does the same thing). Andre
  21. Just change the Shuffle mode and a new shuffle order will be created. Or select a new song from one of the Library views. Andre
  22. Make sure you don't have any unnecessary .CUE files in your folders, and then do a FULL Rescan (in Settings > Library) Andre
  23. One thing to check is that you don't have any CUE files pointing to individual audio files. Do the 'missing' files show up in Folders view in Poweramp? Andre
  24. Volume != Quality. Try resetting the Output methods back to default in case anything carried over from 709 (in Settings > Audio > Output) and then experiment with turning DVC on or off or other tweaks for your chosen output method. There are other gain settings too, but I would caution against any settings which overly reduce the processing headroom that PA normally allows to provide space for EQ gain, etc. But as I said, volume is not the same as quality, and just because a setting goes up to '11' doesn't mean it should be set that way. Andre
  25. Definitely update from the very early beta 709 to current 840 then. Andre
