    API for next Release

    in the first example you/Poweramp use (s) catUri=content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/files, which accesses all songs whereas in the second catUri=content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/1/files#13 which accesses playlists with playlist_id=1 and (playlistentries)_id=13 folder_file_id is the key to the track in the folder_files table I will try the tasker configs in the next few days

    I do not use tasker but will have a look at the database to see where cat is held. Perhaps you can attach the tasker definition so i can try it out

    The only differences are tablenames as listed above. Uris still return as before. Have a look at my other post where i have listed the query returned

    I gotta say... The sound is amazing.

    Thanks, i will ned to test 793 too in that case as 792 has had some changes to the underlying tables

    I am confused about 792 and 793. I cannot find 793 on Google Play. Last update was 2016 according to the information. 792 is obtained from the forum. Does 793 actually exist or was it a typo which has been adopted by others?
  6. even without root you can back up your apps with Helium. It works !! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup&hl=en_GB

    like/dislike vs. 0-5 star rating

    Implementing Like is bad news in my view. I think important fuctionality has been lost . Max lists "new category" in his "whats new" but fails to say "NO MORE RATINGS"

    like/dislike vs. 0-5 star rating

    when you "like" it simply adds a 1 to the field Rating in the Poweramp database. I have posted elsewhere my view on the "Like" feature. As there is no change in the underlying database, it must be very easy to bring back the Rating widget. Perhaps it is still there, only hidden

    Discovered so far: - folder_playlists is now called playlists - folder_playlist_entries is now called playlist_entries - folder_playlists.name renamed to playlists.playlist Also noted that the Rating field still exists, the new Like simply puts a 1 there. I am puzzled why the rating widget has been replaced by the imho silly Like. It is very easy to reinstate the original star rating or offer a choice. Poweramp has options for all sorts so why not add this. Inserting into Poweramp Playlists still not possible.

    Bad Update

    It is a beta build aka pre release. You do not judge or moan at this point but give constructive feedback
  11. @Protagg rather than posting unconstructive comments, why dont you set out what in your opinion is a problem or issue. This is a pre release after all so constructive feedback will help in creating the perfect app. Is max supposed to guess ? Anyway, your title is somewhat weird.

    API for next Release

    After the recent release, the answer to whether there will be any changes is yes. My app is no longer able to list playlists. Lots of other functionality will most likely also not work. I notice that Ratings have gone and has been replaced by stupid like/unlike. Surely a very unpopular choice as most Poweramp users use the rating functionality. I suspect lots of Tasker implementations will also no longer work. In the coming days I will have a look at the underlying database and assess the impact.

    Add option to exclude videos.

    You include/exclude Poweramp searching for media by Settings, Folders and Library, Music Folders. Simply only select folders where your music is held. Unselect all others.. follow up with a rescan.

    API for next Release

    It appears that the new release of Poweramp is getting nearer. As I use the current api extensively in my app, New Playlist Manager, I have some questions regarding the API - Will a new API be released at the same time? - If not, will the existing API be compatible - will there be any database changes - will there be additional functionality. I am particularly interested in inserting into Poweramp playlists. At the moment you can create, edit, delete playlist and playlist entries but not insert new entries. Max did promise this functionality a long time ago. I appreciate any details in advance

    Using Poweramp Media Database instead of Android

    I believe that using the uri final Uri powerampgenreuri = Uri.parse("content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/genres/files"); builds the following so it appears problem solved SELECT folder_files._id as pampid, folders.path as fpath, folder_files.name as fname, genres.genre FROM genre_entries INNER JOIN genres ON genres._id=genre_entries.genre_id INNER JOIN folder_files ON folder_files._id=genre_entries.folder_file_id INNER JOIN folders ON folders._id=folder_files.folder_id LEFT JOIN albums ON albums._id=folder_files.album_id LEFT JOIN artists ON artists._id=folder_files.artist_id WHERE (folder_files.cue_folder_id IS NULL) AND (genres.genre LIKE ?) ORDER BY genre COLLATE NOCASE ,track_tag, folder_files.title_tag COLLATE NOCASE
