  1. At the moment you are right, using external (M3U) playlists and then editing them outside of Poweramp would be the best option. To be honest, anything larger than a dozen or so tracks I tend do to that way anyway. as it's just easier to control - especially if you do it on a PC with a larger window, mouse dragging, etc. Andre
  2. Had anything changed on your phone (new ROM, cleared caches, system reset, etc)? Those are the only times that a license check should be requested, otherwise after the first couple of days (when it will verify the license once) it should not need to do it again. Andre
  3. I can confirm this on my new Galaxy Note 3 (stock 4.4.2, as yet unrooted). If I try to delete a podcast from the external SD Card after I've finished listening to it, Poweramp appears to have removed the file correctly, but it is still present on the SD Card and is discovered again on the next rescan. I can fully delete the file using ES File Explorer though, so it must be possible to work around this in KitKat without needing root. Max, are you looking into this already? Andre
  4. One addition to this, the albumart.pamp file format is plain JPEG, just with a changed file extension. Andre
  5. I suspect that may be your problem, if a rescan occurs when the SD card is not properly accessible by your device (e.g. if it happens during Poweramp startup) then any tracks which are found to be missing at that time could be removed from the playlist. Andre
  6. Try using a different tag editor program? I use TagScanner on my PC. Andre
  7. I don't know for sure, but if you are deleting your Android data cache then I guess that could be causing this? In normal use, there should be one validation during the first 24-48 hours after you purchase the app on Google Play, then it should work without any further checks unless you install new ROMs, reset system, re-install app, etc. Andre
  8. You can send an email to poweramp.maxmpz (at) gmail.com. Andre
  9. It does seem very odd, and it certainly shouldn't be happening so something must be different about the files which don't load. Andre
  10. Can you add your old email, to allow the app to activate in the meantime? Click on the Get Support button in the app to request a change in email details if you ordered it directly from the Poweramp website. Andre
  11. Search for "volume button next track" on Google Play, give them a try. Pocket Skip Track seems a likely contender. I don't use any of them myself, so can't vouch for any I'm afraid. Andre
  12. I suspect it's a red-herring that there are 26 apostrophes / single quotes in that list (as some filenames include more than one). And all of those filenames referenced exist in those exact paths, yes? It should work, I have playlists with at least a hundred tracks in. Andre
  13. If you broke it down to 33, 33 and 31, it seems really odd that each one only showed the same limited number of tracks. Was it the same 26 tracks that you could see that you also saw in the full versions, and spread evenly through the playlists? Or did you see just the first 8, 8 and 10 files in each list? It seems very odd anyway. Would you care to upload the full M3U file here as an attachment in case there's something we can spot? Andre
  14. I got a new digital TV/Radio tuner USB stick last week, and that saves its raw audio files using the .MPA extension. Again, it's just a plain MPEG audio file, and Poweramp plays the content fine, but if the MPA and MP2 extensions could be added to the list of scanned files (they both play as per MP3s) that would be helpful. Thanks. Andre
  15. Agreed, some more info here: http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/6033-not-working-without-internet-connection/?hl=license#entry22899 Andre
  16. Don't forget the old saying about it being impossible to make anything "fool proof" because fools are so ingenious... Andre
  17. License validation checks can occur within the first 24 (48?) hours of purchase, after that Google should not need to check again other than for hardware resets, re-installs, etc. Just connect to the internet and run the app and allow the check to complete, then you should be good to go.

  18. Not directly in Poweramp, but you could via third-party apps which tweak the functionality of the hardware buttons. Andre
  19. As well as the Shuffle option on the Player screen, there is also a List Order sort (go to the Folders/Library view and press Menu) but I didn't think that effected Playlists. Does the order show correctly when you view the playlist contents in the Library>Playlists screen? You can re-order the tracks via that screen too, by dragging the little slider icon up and down (which will save the modifications back into the .M3U file, so you may want to keep a backup of your original version). Andre
  20. As far as I know there is no such limitation on the trial version, it's purely a timed trial. Do any of the filenames or paths contain odd characters which might be confusing the system, or is there a common link in the files which don't display? Try making three smaller playlists via Notepad++ and see if all the tracks show up that way. Also try saving as UTF-8 (Unicode text) format and change the playlist extender from .M3U to .M3U8 and see if that makes a difference. Andre
  21. Sounds potentially dangerous to me, but I guess if it was an optional feature with clear warning text when you enable it? Andre
  22. Sounds like a nice idea to me too, hopefully the app developer will agree? Andre
  23. That is one of the difficulties with new features and options getting added to software via incremental updates, existing users can sometimes not notice they are there. A whole version update, with everything new at once, tends to make people look through the new features more closely. Those options have been there for at least a year or two though I think. I'm glad your problem is resolved anyway. Andre
  24. For most advanced users, it is generally better to manually select just those folders which contain your music (in my case, just one on my external card) rather than letting Poweramp auto-scan the whole of your phone. Otherwise you end up with ringtones, notifications and even game sounds in your Poweramp music lists. Andre
  25. As far as I know, it is only intended to change the art for the current song not a whole album. Andre
