    But both Supervilians folder and the next one (The dirty heads) are in that top folder where you clicked shuffle.

    It works this way:

    - plays shuffled songs from current folder (if any)

    - plays shuffled songs from random next folder within whole hierarchy of given folder (the one you press shuffle header button in)

    So if I 'm understanding correctly, it picks a random subfolder to play (assuming current folder is empty) , but not random songs from of all the subfolders?
    Is there no longer a way to play shuffled songs in subfolders with the new version?  On the old one I would just long press the root folder, hit shuffle, and it would do it.   I thought the green shuffle button replaced that.

    Folders and Folders Hierarchy have both been working fine for the last few builds, and are fine in 809 too. If you still have problems after doing a Full Rescan, please could you explain what is happening for you?


    I did do a full rescan and it didn't help.
    Here's a video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uauxqkp3f5y96s2/20181120_131257.mp4?dl=0

    I open Poweramp
    open folder hierarchy
    browse to mp3s cds > Beach

    There are 6 sub-directories of beach, if I press the green shuffle button it should randomly play through them.
    Instead it just plays thorough the Supervillians folder, then onto the other folders






  3. If you are using folder hierarchy - you can browse to a folder of singles and press the snuffle button and it will shuffle those songs.  However if you browse to folder containing subfolders, it will only play the 1st subfolder, not shuffle all of them as intented.  For example, in this screen shot - pressing the shuffle icon should randomly play those 5 subdirectories, but it only plays Ballyhoo, then jumps to a unrelated folder.  It seem this bug has been in all the recent betas, as of 799 it still exists.

    You can shuffle the target folder and all the subfolders / songs in it by heitting shuffle button in header. You should to be in the target folder, that changed vs v2.

    So it looks like this works for files in the immediate directory, but doesn't work for subfolders.   It will start to play randomly through the 1st directory, then jump to a completely different directory that is not one of those subfolders.  Like it's not recursively going through all of them, and just stopping after the 1st.  

  5. Thanks Max for the ongoing updates.  I posted this in the last thread but didn't get a response, is anyone else having this behavior, or is it a configuration issue on my install?  

    I have all my music organized in nested folders.   Before the recent betas if I wanted to shuffle a folder I would just long press on it and the option to play & shuffle all songs in that folder and subfolders would appear.  I don't see that option anymore, has it moved or has that just not been implemented in the new betas yet?  It looks like maybe it was replaced by a shuffle icon in this image?
    However when I press it doesn't shuffle those folders.  

    I've never used the queue function before, I was trying that as an alternative but can't quite figure it out the best way to use it.  I use Poweramp while driving, so the less buttons required the better.   If I wanted to recreate the long press is this the process?
    open library
    select queue
    clear queue
    navigate to folder to play
    long press folder
    press queue
    select shuffle just songs

    There is a button beside the timer, maybe use that one

    Got it, thanks.  I guess there's no way to keep the visualizations play behind the artwork (like it does for 1 seconds before the artwork fades away in full screen mode)
