  1. There actually are tag editors as seperate apps that work like poweramps tag editor, with automation and all,  and they do save those in the file, most of them have to be unlocked with an in app purchase to be actually not frustrating tho. so what i do is, (well firstly i actually get my music with well made tags lol) I download the image using Poweramp and then use my fav file explorer for android, mixplorer, with the tag addon and i go to the album folder, select all files (there's a button for that), go to edit tags in the three dots menu, tap on the spot for the album art and navigate to /android/data/_com.maxmpz.audioplayer/selected_aa/ and select the image. That's not file for file, but one action to fix a whole album and to me that's uncomplicated and fast enough, because remember, i rip well tagged files only.

    i actually only need to do that if i got the deluxe version of the album but the standard cover looks better or if there's alternate covers that look better or if the cover i got is censored (yes, that's a thing). fixing bad tags is a pain in the ass, so i'd advise just getting them from a good source in the first place and when i come across a badly tagged album in my library, i honestly just redownload it.

    Does this happen in the default skins, or only in some third-party ones? I can't duplicate it in the supplied skins, but I can in a third-party one that I use.

    Andre

    Only third party. Please don't tell me I've got to report it to the theme's dev. I feel like I reported and requested so many small annoying details already, I'm pretty sure he'd fly over to my house and kill me.


  3. The Chromecast button can't be disabled anymore. I don't use Chromecast and it's on top of the album art. Please fix this.

    Also how is the multiple sort criteria thing coming along that we talked about in July or something? (I'll edit in the link to the thread when I find it)

    Edit: I'm talking about this:

    Generally, I think you want secondary sort setting (there is a hidden secondary sort field already, for example, year + name for albums). This is quite possible, adding to the backlog. Thanks!

    What is planned short term is ability to add 2nd and may be 3rd level of sorting.

    Custom categories are also planned, but they won’t be a hierarchy, they were planned as top level flat categories added by user with the specific filtering. Sorting is not directly related to this. Thanks!


  4. Hey, thanks for the answers. Due to unexpected circumstances, I won't be able to afford a phone like this in quite some time. I had to get a very cheap, very bad phone that nobody could ever want, just to have a phone and I guess I'll just have to live with that one for a (long) while. I'm glad it runs PA at all.


  5. Hi. I broke my phone, like an idiot. Now I need a new one so I examined my phone usage and I really mostly use Poweramp only, so naturally for my new phone, besides price,  compatibility with Poweramp, a decent internal DAC, a massive storage for all my .FLAC files, and sadly this has to be said, a headphone jack, are the top priorities for me.

    Well and it has to have an unlockable bootloader and an open sourced kernel, cuz we all know how android oems tend to not update their phones for more than idk, feels like 2 weeks or something.

    Price shouldn't be too far over 350€ (that's 386 USD or  317 GBP)

    When I bought my OnePlus One (may it rest in many, very tiny pieces), it was the obvious choice, it was the best smartphone for the best price, no compromises. But in recent years the smartphone market exploded and I'm overwhelmed with every oem vomitting out dozens of new devices every day and none of them have everything, all of them come with a catch, a sacrifice or a compromise. Which makes them - even though they're very different - all the same. I've searched for hours it's so exhausting...

    Please help!

     

    Also I think I read somewhere, that u have dozens of test devices, @maxmp, can u recommend some of them? That way Poweramp compatibility is a thing I can cross off my list for sure...

     

    Disclaimer: Please be aware that while this is important to me and I love discussing about phones, I have very limited internet access so I might be unresponsive at most times, but I really appreciate every answer and I will eventually get to see and respond to them.

    I'm not sure I understand, but possibly, yes. Yeah, I'm pretty sure.

    I'll try to elaborate more on my request to further eliminate any possible misunderstandings, I wouldn't want u to waste ur time. 

    I want that in the "albums" list/category, albums by Eminem are located at "E" so after deadmau5's and before Green Day's albums. And Eminem's albums should then be sorted by year so that the Slim Shady LP (1999) shows up before the Marshall Mathers LP (2000), even tho the "M" from "Marshall" alphabetically comes before the "S" from "Slim".

    That has been proposed with a generic sort functionality by @andrewilley , see above.

    What r u trying to tell me with that? That I should've looked for others requesting the same before posting my own thread? If so I'd like to point out that andrewilley posted that in April, this thread is from February.

    Or do you want to do a multiple  sort of all albums, first by Album artist, then by year ?

    Exactly, that's it. I have the list "all albums" sorted by "album artist" and I want to keep that and I mostly try to solve the problem, that sometimes an album is titled "xyz" and the next album from that artist is "xyz 2" and then Poweramp lists "xyz 2" before "xyz". Especially (but not exclusively) for audio books, that sucks. (Of course, I could tag "xyz" as "xyz 1", but that's just wrong, it is not the real title of the album and it bugs me. This + the addition of this multiple sorting being a useful addition from other perspectives as well, made me request it.)

    Sorry if my previous response came across as rude, but with my sometimes limited English skills it's kinda hard to explain what it is that I want and being therefore unable to get my point across is very frustrating.

  9. About the album art: in the list view it just loads thumbnails, right? So album art of a lower resolution wouldn't really improve loading/caching significantly, would it?

     

    Edit: Wait.. Did u do anything to it? It seems to be better, but that could be placebo

    @LPW00 is this for SoX resampler or SW resampler is enabled (Settings / Audio / Resampler). Does this happen for opus files only? Do you use hi-res output, and if so, what is your sampling frequency (44.1/48/96/192, etc.)? Thanks!

    Sox, cutoff frequency ratio is 99%, Dither is set to shibata. It seems to happen on flac too. High Res output is still not working on my phone so just standard opensl es output. 48kHz, since all opus tracks are 48kHz, any other frequency wouldn't make sense.

    What exactly happened? If that was a track skip, are you sure track exists on the device, recognized and you can manually start it to play? Thanks!

    Here u can see, that it claims it can't play the song, after that message it skipped, I swiped back and as u can see the second screenshot shows, it is playing, it's 12 seconds in. But also notice how while in the notification it's accurate on the player it's still.stuck at 0. This is happening a lot less on 835, as on 834 it was happening on every 3rd track, now it's just once in a while.

    @LPW00 Poweramp has no problem to cache huge number of covers forever, but unfortunately, there are limits on available per-app memory (RAM). This memory limit does not strictly depend on actual device memory (OP1 has 3gb which is more than OK), but on Android per-app limits. These limits were pretty low back on Android 5-6 days, now they are much more flexible.

    As I can see you're on OP 1 @ Android 6.0, which can cache 153.6mb of images = 154 images in total  (or 307 images if RGB 24-bit is off). Actual loaded # of images will be a bit smaller. Unchecking Settings / Album Art / Use 24-bit RGB option will help a bit with number of cached images.

    I am impressed that u know I'm using a bacon, it does however run Pie.

    The speed with which album arts are loaded depends on your device.

    I have my album arts all in HD resolution and the loading speed has no delay.

    If the album arts do not load fast enough for you then it's not because of Poweramp, but because your memory does not work fast enough. 

    That would be a reasonable explanation, if other apps didn't load them faster/ cached the longer


  14. Thanks for figuring my problem. out so quickly.

    I hope this is the right place to ask for this: Can the loading and caching of album art be improved somehow? I've got 311 albums on my phone currently and it's loading them very slow, and they don't stay for long. If I scroll down to see the last few album arts loading, and then go up again, the album arts at the top have already been replaced by Poweramp's placeholder again. I guess what I'm asking here would kinda break changed album arts appearing immediately tho... Maybe a toggle, for old devices like mine?

    Again, if you find some track not played correctly, please share the failing track (via in app Send / Gmail / gpmaxmpz@gmail.com) for tests. Thanks!

    Also, do you use SoX resampler? SoX was updated recently too, and I already identified and fixed few bugs in it, but it seems SoX may affect that skipping behavior you're describing. Does it help if SW resampler is enabled?

    @LPW00 btw I got your track, thank you, and there is zero issues with it for build 834.. Are you sure that’s the one failing?

    @SynekPablo there were few issues with codecs causing gapless failures in build 833, but for 834 all gapless test cases pass OK. Can you please send 2 files which fail to be gaplessly played for you? Thanks?

    It's not track related and no track fails every time, it's just like every 4th track I wanna play randomly don't work and it skips to the next, if I swipe back, the track most likely starts playing with (next to) no issues. It's just annoying when u'r listening to music while u do something that requires both hands so u can't adjust the track and Poweramp decides to just skip track 2 - 6 from ur selected album.

    Could you send me one of such tracks (you can do it directly from Poweramp lists / long press track / Send / Gmail / gpmaxmpz@gmail.com) for tests? Thanks!

    What kinda song would u prefer lol

    Edit: can't do anything wrong with Jimi Hendrix, amirite?

    Edit2: I just noticed it happens with flac titles too. I thought all my music was converted to opus but apparently I forgot some and it had the same issues. So maybe it's format unrelated? Idk I only use these two formats.


  17. I have a 32 bit device. I have my whole library in .opus and recently I've noticed Poweramp randomly skips tracks or displays a toast that the file is unplayable, yet still plays it (also the play time counter seems to be stuck at 0:00 when that happens and sometimes the wave seekbar stays flat). Force closing Poweramp fixes it momentarily.
