    It's not "hacking" or "exploiting" a bug, nor it is exploiting a security vulnerability. It's just a hidden switch, for advanced users. PEQ can only equalize players that support equalization and expose their audio sessions. Otherwise, either the devs of those media players have to implement EQ support, or Android will have to allow universal unrestricted audio equalization. Amazon Music, YouTube don't work with PEQ because devs don't want you to use an equalizer on them. Nothing you can do I am afraid, expect convincing the devs. ADB permission is basically "forcing" equalization support.



    Why would they not want you to have the best sound possible for their services?  I know people that don't know the difference between the crappy earpods and stock headphones vs good quality headphones or earbuds and no equalizer but audiophiles like me want to make the sound sound better.   

    I have the official Youtube Music listed in PEQ.   what is the current list of apps that are supported with PEQ?

    @hypomaniac-eric Have you applied the ADB patch to support additional apps?


    No because that looks too complicated.   Looks like hacking I don't feel like doing.   Is there not an update to make Amazon Music work?  Or Youtube Music Vanced?   I don't understand why it's not working when regular YT Music works with it and Spotify.   I wanted to listen to Amazon Music but the sound sounds boring without the equalizer working.  i already uninstalled the global eq i had but it wasn't as good as this one but it worked for the other apps.

    Liv Dark - Poweramp v3 Skin v1.5.2 | Get it here: https://bit.ly/2CuE25o
    • Improved labels and values backgrounds
    • Improved landscape
    • Improved aa scale
    • Misc ui fixes and improvements


    How do you do those kind of border colors?  I looked in the settings and can't find how to do it in these screenshots.

  4. i can't stand the constant interruptions from notifications either while listening to music especially during bike rides and workouts.   especially with constant messages from group chats, but i figured out how to silence those thankfully.   and then have the same issue on my windows computers.   getting like 5 notifications in a row whenever i get back on the computer.   gone are the days you can listen to music in piece.

    The sample files you uploaded cannot show as having embedded artwork in Poweramp, because there really is no artwork in the files. Of course PA's auto-download feature may have found a suitable online image for you, which will then be displayed as cover artwork. To confirm this, long-press on one of the covers and select Album Art. If there is any actual embedded artwork, it will show labelled as such as the second item in the list.

    No, I don't use MusicBee or any other automatic syncing software. I'm very old-school, I just open a window on my PC to my phone's storage (I use a wireless FTP service on my phone so no need for cables, I just click on the shortcut icon on my PC's desktop) and then I manually drag files and folders into the relevant locations on my phone. It's not that these automated apps are necessarily bad, I just like like to have full control of the situation. That is one of the reasons why I asked you to upload some actual files from your phone, rather than sending your master copies on your PC.

    Anyway, glad you got it sorted out now and have told MusicBee to stop editing your files during the sync process.


    so what do you use to play music on your computer then if you don't use Musicbee?  I find Musicbee to be more full featured and much better then iTunes and WMP.  and totally customizable beyond belief.

    Neither of those files have any embedded cover artwork. They do have embedded lyrics though.


    Weird Musicbee says it does and i readded them too.    I don't know what the problem is.    I use the Musicbee wifi sync app.   Also the same ones on my phone show up on Poweramp and are embedded according to Poweramp. 


    Update:    the sync settings on Musicbee was set to "do not sync artwork"    i thought since it was already embedded it didn't need synced.   

    update:   i deleted songs and resynced and now it's ok.   what i don't understand is some mp3's had embedded album covers but not others before redoing it. 

    Do you use Musicbee? 

  7. i have an album "Bird Sounds" for all the bird sounds on my phone that i use when trying to bird watch.   each species of birds have their own embedded album covers.   if for some reason it gets changed in Poweramp then it will be an issue if it changes it for 80 or more sounds.   then it would show the wrong cover for the species.

    So adding the covers is always done at the musicbee stage and they are all embedded the audio files, nothing is searched/downloaded in Poweramp. I assume you've done a Full Rescan, and also checked in PA Settings > Album Art to ensure you haven't set any override options (unlikely if this is only occurring with new tracks)? Deleting the cache in PA probably won't help as that's more for downloaded art / folder-based images.

    Could you perhaps upload a sample of one of the problem files directly from your phone - i.e. not using the source copies on your PC - for checking?


    I tried full rescan and rescan resolve playlists. Neither works.    Can get album covers on other music apps.  Here's two songs.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WxpuzrDvwUC2yy_6nb2rxP-nuQpeVJIz/view?usp=drivesdk

    So how are you doing covers? And how are they syncing? If manual download rather than embedded, the filenames (or artist/album names) must match and not change.


    I add them in the tag window.   either through Musicbee if it finds them or manually download the covers and add them in musicbee.   there's nothing wrong with the mp3's.   The covers are embedded.   i even tried readding the covers and resyncing my tablet after deleting the Mp3's form the tablet but not good.

    Could Musicbee be modifying the files when it syncs?


    It shouldn't be.    If it does it should be on embed covers.   But i think i have it turned off since I do my covers manually in my library.   They synced fine on my phone and show up ok in Poweramp on my phone.  

  11. On my tablet recently new albums synced from musicbee doesn't have any album covers even though they're embedded in the mp3's.   i deleted them and resynced them but still no album covers.   when i go into the album art to select one, embedded doesn't show up either.   what is going on?   What can i do to fix it?  I tried clearing the album art cache. 

  12. Did something change in the settings with the new EQ app and this Poweramp Player update?   I notice that when i turn the volume up or down on my phone the bluetooth devices volume also changes.   it wasn't like that before.    I did reset my phone recently and restored Poweramp settings from backup.   GS9+

    thanks for adding the green background.  How do you make the whole play button change colors other then the outline?

  15. I love this skin and it's gradients.   Is it possible to have lighter background colors?  They're all so dark they are hard to see the colors.   I love the navy blue pale.   perhaps more colors that are that light?   Green is my favorite color so if there was lighter green that would be nice.

    I have Poweramp on all my mobile equipment, but I'm wanting to get back on my large laptop & even larger AIO, but they are both Windows 10.  Is there any likelihood that PA will soon venture over to Windows?  I presently have Media Monkey Gold, but in the past 6 months I have been losing songs. It starts in an album & slowly works it's way thru. The latest tragedy is my box set of every album Queen with Freddy, 25 CD's & a cost almost $400.00 Cnd.  If PA has no plans for going over to windows, might some you all know of something as good or nearly there as PA. I don't mind having to pay for a good media player. after all I paid for the MMGold & the full PA. I really do love PA. Anywho, thanks in advance.  

    Have  you tried Musicbee?  It's similar to Media Monkey but free and has lots of settings to customize the UI and everything.   Even theater mode and you can customize that too!!  it has a spectrum analyzer and VU Meter.  shows lyrics and you can search for tags in the program.   I converted from itunes to it a few years ago.   Won't go back.   It also has a app that is buggy that you can do wifi syncs as well.  he's having problems figuring the app problem out.

    Small problem with one of the two widgets I use.  The 1 X 1 widget allows me to put a playlist on the home screen and to play that playlist, randomized, just by touching the icon.  I love that feature, and have a whole bundle of playlist shortcuts set up to do that.  Since the last update, though, when I touch the icon for any playlist, the only thing that happens is that Poweramp opens to the last music played.  I tried reinstalling different playlist widgets, but it doesn't help.  I also tried turning off any battery savers or other restrictions, and that also did not work. I know this can be fixed because it was working beautifully only a few days ago.  Thanks for any help.

    how do you get those shortcuts and icons?

  18. @maxmp  I think i might know more about the EQ bluetooth devices bug.   I resaved a EQ setting as the same name and overwritten it, then after that when reconnecting my bt device i then had two of the same device under the bt settings for that EQ preset.   So I deleted the eq preset and then saved a new one under the same name and was back to one BT device for that preset.

    I've signaled this in the beta thread but now that I see this thread, I think it's better to keep the problem here.

    So I have the exact same problem as hypomaniac-eric.

    My original post:


    Thanks for posting.   I haven't heard a response from Max yet.  Surely he knows about this issue by now.
