  1. I've often wondered what people use A-B Repeat for in the real world, but a lot of people do seem to want it. I've had it on CD players, etc since they were invented in the 80s, but not once in my life have I actually used it! I just can't see why I'd want to repeat-play a short portion of a track in casual everyday use. Sure for editing purposes, but not on a regular player. Max: if you were to implement this, it might fit in well with the revised playback options that we were discussing a year ago? Just add an extra seventh option, thus: Play One Song Play Current List Play All Lists Repeat Current Song Repeat Current List Repeat All Lists Repeat A-B If the user selects the Repeat A-B option, that would define the current playback position as the 'in' point, and the option wording would change to Repeat A-B (set endpoint). When the endpoint has similarly been selected, the track would repeat continuosly between A and B until the user selects a different option. Long-press on Pause button (i.e. Stop) could revert to the previously selected playback mode. Thoughts? Andre
  2. I assume Google Player must be caching your music files onto your local device then, rather than just streaming. Handy! I wonder how long it keeps them there for? Andre
  3. So how does the sound get from Poweramp to your car speakers? Normally that would either be via cable (headset socket) or via Bluetooth, either of which can trigger playback start. Andre
  4. Do any of the autostart playback options in the Headset menu help? Does the device link to the car audio system via bluetooth or by headset cable? Whichever, try setting that mode to "Resume on Connect" in Settings > Headset. Andre
  5. Ah, right. Just set the Folders > List Options > View As... setting to "Hierarchy" rather than "List". Andre
  6. Could you elaborate on that? I use folders and subfolders in Poweramp all the time without any problems. Andre
  7. Yes, it was meant as an amusing/ironic comment. Sorry, I didn't think it needed a smiley to reinforce the point but I guess I was wrong. However as you say, the underlying implication of the quote (and it's a fairly famous one in computing circles) is still valid. By the way, please note the wording in my sig folks... I offered to help out the staff here in catching spammers/etc more quickly, but I'm not one of the actual programming staff. Andre
  8. Oh good, another codec. "The nice thing about standards is that you have so many to choose from." - Andrew S Tanenbaum Andre
  9. I assume it's simply not ready yet. I'm sure they'll let us know when it's done. Andre
  10. Nor me, I've actually often wondered what it could be useful for. It's got to be a trivial bit of code, but I can't for the life of me think why I'd want to repeat some random bit of one song which could only be relatively coarsely selected anyway. Andre
  11. A repeat mode where you set the in and out points within one track, and it keeps playing that section. Andre
  12. Excellent, so when I'm looking though my folders list, I'll just be able to select a context menu option of "Exclude folder from Shuffle". Sounds perfect, can't wait! Will it include any sub-folders too by the way? (For example, if I exclude my "Podcasts" folder, will it also exclude anything from the dozen or so sub-folders in there also?) Andre
  13. RIngtones are easy to remove. As you'll never want to listen to them in Poweramp anyway, just untick the specific folder that they are stored in (using Settings>Folders and Library>Music Folders), and they'll never be picked up during a scan and Poweramp will never play them at all. Andre
  14. Quite, just need an option to define which songs should not be added to the all-songs shuffle list (e.g.concept or classical albums where the tracks flow into one and other, audiobooks/podcasts/radio shows, etc). A by-folder exclusion list would be the simplest, but also using genre tags (optional of course) could be another possible solution. Andre
  15. This has been asked many times, and hopefully better long-file support is coming in version 3. Max/Wen, is there a general outline of what is planned to be implemented in this area, and how you see it working from an end-user point of view? For the record, I would suggest something along the following lines: A new 'Long Audio Track Options' submenu in the 'Folders and Library' category (or could be called 'Audiobooks/Podcasts/Spoken Word'). This should contain: Folders List <--- This would display a folder tree showing all the currently selected MusicFolders, with tickboxes to chose which of these folders should be treated specially as containing 'long tracks' (or whatever the term eventually becomes). Nested folders should auto-select with the parent folder. Genres <--- A list of genres to always treat as 'long tracks', with tickboxes beside each one (e.g. 'Audiobook', 'Podcast', 'Radio', 'Spoken Word', etc). This could probably be simplified to a Yes/No option actually, covering all of the common genres in one go. Track Length <--- Selects the number of minutes that any random track needs to be in order to also be considered as a 'long track'. Skip Tracks in Shuffle mode? (Y/N) <--- The requested feature above, i.e. to skip podcasts/audiobooks/etc when listing to random music in Shuffle mode. Remember Previous Playback Positions? (Y/N) <--- As a lot of these tracks can be several hours long, allows the user to go off and listen to something else in the meantime and then come back to any podcast/audiobook exactly where they left off. Have I missed anything obvious that people might want? (I also think new Skip Back <nnn> Seconds and Skip Forward <nnn> Seconds options should be available for all songs, rather than only for audiobook/podcasts, although they will be most useful for these longer formats). Just my $0.02 anyway, hope it's useful. Andre
  16. Agreed - I wasn't actually saying that Romanian shouldn't be added, just that the original post was a little... contradictory, shall we say, in that one person's "useless" is another person's handy new feature. Saying that Google Music would be useless as it is not applicable to all countries, and then talking about a Romanian translation in the same paragraph, seemed a bit odd. Andre
  17. Romanian being a popular feature in all countries I assume? Andre
  18. Personally, I'd prefer Max's valuable development time to go into making Poweramp an (even) better audio player with easier and better playback controls, still more accurate audio, and other useful features - rather than making it into the Instagram of sound. Just IMHO anyway. Andre
  19. Hmm, try Shuttle Songs, Lists In Order and turn the Repeat mode to List (keeps playing the randomised folder repeatedly). Andre
  20. Yeah, this concept of 'lists' is confusing a few people - it's a kind of generic term to cover folders, albums, artists, etc - basically whatever you've currently got requested as your 'top-level' sort order. I use folder mode, and the Shuffle terms translate as follows (but the same idea applies if you categorise by abums, artists, etc): Off - No shuffling. Play all files (tracks) within the first folder (or album or artist) in order, then play the next folder/album/artist in sequence, etc. All (aka Shuffle All Songs) - Completely random, any file/track from any folder/album/artist can be played next. Songs (aka Shuttle Songs, Lists In Order) - Folders/Albums/Artists are chosen in the correct order, but all the files/tracks within each folder/album/artist will be randomised. Lists (aka Shuffle Lists, Songs in Order) - Folders/Albums/Artists are chosen at random, but the files/tracks within each of those folders/albums/artists are player in the correct original order. Lists/Songs (aka Shuffle Songs, Shuffle Lists) - A folder/ablum/artist is chosen at random and then all of the files/tracks within that folder/ablum/artist are played at random, then a new folder/ablum/artist is chosen (at random) and its contents are played in random order, etc. At least, I think that's how it works! Andre
  21. Do we get to add to this post directly? I'd vote for a very simple configurable set of options for the player's 'Menu' button, so you can choose the initial five/six items which pop up when you press the Menu button (as everyone's usage style is wildly different). Unless the skin editor will allow that already? (fingers crossed) Andre
  22. Multiple artist support would be great for me too. Maybe you could even auto-split the artist tag where you see the term "feat." in the working (where did that come from over recent years anyway? In the good old wax-cylinder days it was simply called a duet! ) Andre
