  1. Nice to get one right on occasion. LOL Opted for a nicely chilled rather presumptuous yet well behaved chardonnay instead. Salud!
  2. If I understand correctly what I read regarding legacy access, there seems to be a problem with Google yet again closing down the scope of visibility (AKA scoping). Guessing again, Google argues that the less visible something is, the more secure it is. Developers/Users argue that if something can't be seen, except in limited circumstances, what good is it doing anyone. Or maybe I should just go away, and open another bottle of pinot grigio. Salud!
  3. Problem solved - it was the Legacy switch. Thanks!
  4. Pixel 4XL rooted to Android 11, PA build-903-arm64-play[9030004-4dbb36e4] All attempts to assign /Main Storage/ fail. I pick internal storage, which doesn't show the "contains folders" arrow, using the check box. Using the + I pick "continue" in the Add Storage/Provider Plugin, drill down to Music, and tap Use this folder. Tag allow and... fail. What's happening here???
  5. Thanks! This post covers just about everything. :)
  6. Sorry, by "get to them" I mean assume I have an album with no artwork, or the internet search didn't produce anything useful. I have a useful image of the artist, and I want to apply that to the album with no artwork. Or... apply that same artist's image so it's used in the playlist.
  7. Trying to go at this from a different angle... Viewed as either a list of albums by the same artist, or by album, it has the right artwork. Is there any way to get to the albums' artwork?
  8. Assume the tracks are properly tagged, PA goes to the Internet for each track in a playlist?? One of my gripes (posted earlier under feature request let the user assume more control over searches) is some search results produce artwork 100% irrelevant (dunno how that happens). Going to the internet for, in some cases several hundred tracks, is ...um... odd. Particularly if the art is just flat wrong. Is there no way to simply refer to the existing album art associated the track's album of origin?
  9. I'm not sure about doing screen grabs from the phone. If I tap the playlist and try to apply album art at that point, I can select the art. When I tap a specific track in the playlist, I"m back to the zap screen. In short, nothing seems to associate art with tracks. Almost all of my lists have the same artist, with tracks in the desired order. I thought artist art, at least, might appear.
  10. The work flow is: Current screen is "Zap", title to play (at bottom of screen) is from the playlist. Tap the ... choose album art and "No data". Based on what you've said, I don't see a way to assign, at any point from choose playlist to play track, a default background.
  11. The idea is to put up something other than the default jagged screen default for no artwork. Artist artwork, album artwork, one piece of art for the entire playlist is fine.
  12. In a playlist that uses albums with existing album art, the art isn't displayed. Attempting to define album art for the playlist, "Data not available" is displayed briefly. Why is that, and is there a fix or work-around? Build: 875-876
  13. In several instances the presented artist and/or album art is hopelessly clueless. "Alpine Soundtracks" gets several versions of "South Carolina Living" magazine covers. There is nothing about generic Alps images. I have no idea how many other artists and albums are so afflicted. Being able to tweak the search terms should help with fixing that problem. Being able to include files will be helpful, too.
  14. @Crericper Interesting. Play Service was mentioned, more than once, as a possible problem. IIRC, tinkering with it was occasionally useful, but didn't prove to be a certain work-around. The infinite loop must have been extremely active to hammer the CPU to the point of heating to the point it did. Of course high battery consumption inevitable in this instance. FWIW, I've been using existing playlists with no problems. Battery consumption is well within the expected range.
