    @Austin-316 thanks for the details. Looks like storage is not immediately mounted on your device after boot, when you start Poweramp it tries to load some song and fails, thus, loading some first available (though, this shouldn't be available too, in theory, causing multiple "Failed to play" messages). There may be other issue, preventing Poweramp from accessing storage immediately. Unfortunately, my test S7E stuck on Android 7.0 (so OS differs) and it's not reproducible on as well.



    @maxmp thanks both of my devices are android oreo 8.0 stock,  LG v30+ and galaxy s7 flat,  I have android studio I will try to produce a log when this bug happens, BTW I'm not the only one with issue other people have this issue too as you can see.

    @Austin-316 I don't think I can reproduce that (testing on device with 20k songs + initial scan). When I start PA it's showing Library immediately and in the miniplayer I can see the last track played immediately.

    What do you see there on start?

    Also I tries All Songs category. Does this reproduce for you for some specific category or all of them are affected?

    @maxmp  yes but if you enable start at library in look and feel settings and restart the device and launch PA the miniplayer it is not showing the last song I played instead it just shows the first song in the library (I mean first song in All Songs category ) or a random song, if I go back and force between the miniplayer and now playing screen it is still the same . the temorary fix for me is to close PA from app switcher and relaunch it.

    and it doesn't matter which song category , all of them are affected.

    I formatted the devices to factory settings multiple times and started testing this on new clean device and it still the same

    if you can't replicate here is a step by step how to

    0-enable start at library in look and feel settings

    1-close PA from app switcher

    2-force close the PA from Settings >>apps

    3-restart the device

    4-launch PA from the widget

    Can you please provide step by step scenario when this is reproducible for you? As again, desync should a be very rare case, only during (probably long) scans and after that it immediately synchronizes. And generally this is not reproduceble in normal conditions for even 20k songs collections (but my test devices are not filled with apps and not tweaked).

     As immediate solution (esp. if PA is killed often), I recommend disabling Initial scan option in Settings / Library / Scanner.


     thanks @maxmp I disabled the Initial scan option , it didn't have  any effect

    first you must enable start at library in look and feel settings

    then restart the device and launch Poweramp either directly or from the widget, and start playing a song and go back to library and you can see the song that is actually playing is different from the one in the mini player,

    I noticed this issue since build 390 + and I posted this thread on sepetember 9

    Does it happen it normal use though, when you don't force-close and kill the app first as you described above?


    when this happens you can fix it by closing the app and launch it again, but this dysync happens when you force close the app and/or restart the device 

    I even factory reset both of my devices to see if it  was my fault but it still happens

    Again, some desync between mini player and actual song loaded can happen during rescan, but it should normalize itself as soon as scan finished.

    Desync happens due to the rapidly changing database, when some parts of PA may load different datasets, but this should be really rare case and only for the rescanning.

    An alternative is to disable UI or parts of it during rescans.

    If desync happens for you when no any active scan is happening (progress rotates in library header), please le me know.

    Thank you @maxmp for your reply

    Yes exactly this desync happens when no any active scan is happening, I tested this more than 15 times , again this desync happens when no any active scan is happening, please if you can fix it that would be awesome, I tested this on galaxy s7 and LG V30+ this desync is defiantly happening

  6. @maxmp  this problem is definitely very much alive and its very annoying please fix,  I tested this with two devices Galaxy S7 and LG V30+ both running stock android 8.0

    this is how to reproduce the bug

    1- kill Poweramp from app switcher

    2- force stop Poweramp from settings / apps

    3- restart device

    4- launch Poweramp either directly or from the widget


    please fix this @maxmp  @andrewilley

    Did you try reinstalling it solved the problem for me try that once i have mixed source of files some in sd card and some internal storage so i suggest you do that @Austin-316

    @snoufaltariq  thanks for your suggestion , I reinstalled  PA and started from scratch, I think I narrowed the issue down to this: this problem now happens only if "Start at Library" is on in look and feel settings,  I mean the setting when you launch PA it will go directly to the library rather than the now playing screen, you can reproduce this issue by restarting the phone or force stopping the app in settings and launch PA either from icon or widget.

    If your music is on an SD card (or if there is a large number of files in a single folder) could you try copying some music files into a small folder on your internal memory and see if you have the same problem with those tracks?


    thanks @andrewilley, I unselected the music folder that were on my sd card, then copied some music files from my pc over to internal  storage, and selected that folder within Poweramp , the problem still persists. please @maxmp  can you fix this .

    Same here. Galaxy S9 on 8.0.0.

    It happens not only by using the widget but randomly when you open the app. The bar is completely frozen, you can't open the now playing screen nor play anything and it's stuck to the first track in your library, whatever the last thing you listened to was, like Austin-316 described.
    The only solution is to completely close and relaunch Poweramp.

    You're right mine is exactly like that.

    Yeah, that's happened to me a couple of times too. I just can't work out what's making it happen so I can't reproduce it and raise a proper bug report...

    I can reproduce it by launching Poweramp from the widget

    how to produce logs? I wanna help.
