    Poweramp 3.0 Vaporware

    My feelings bro. Just look at how much we are waiting for the Opus codec support. I can't believe this takes so long. Even if the developer knows that the next major version will take 2-3 times more as expected, i would rather be honest and tell this to the people.

    OPUS codec

    Just as a sidenote the developer of FreeAmp solved my Opus decoding need in an hour https://bitbucket.org/recoilme/freeamp/issue/27/opus-decoder I'm still waiting for Poweramp to support Opus since it's UI is still way ahead in user-friendliness than anything else on Play Shop.

    OPUS codec

    Still nothing I would love to stay with Poweramp but i've waited just too much for Opus decoding to happen. Common i've asked this almost two years ago. I've started looking after other players which are capable of playing Opus. GoneMad looks good but sometimes it laggs unacceptably. Reconfiguring the buffer sizes doesn't help. Also it screws up my A2DP car headunit, handling of calls gets unpredictable. VLC does play Opus but it's UI is a joke, as well as the amount of settings available. Also it's designed mainly for playing video. Does anyone knows about other players capable of playing Opus? I've just came across FreeAmp this morning which is based on the Android BASS media library however it doesn't contain the Opus decoder module. Also it's very basic, however it's open source and i'm thinking about taking part in the development and improving it.

    Any news about this guys? At least say something. You've got into problems, decoders are not well optimized, something fishy... anything I'm a bit sad that 4.4 KitKat doesn't support this already from the OS.

    OPUS codec

    I've read somewhere (maybe on HydrogenAudio) that Rockbox now has an ARM optimized decoder for Opus. Maybe you can incorporate that into Poweramp. By the way check out the new 1.1-beta demo page: http://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/opus/demo3.shtml This release improves a lot on tonal samples. I'm using 96kbps files encoded by this version on my ultrabook for daily listening and i'm very satisfied with the results. Any update by the way? A year has passed by and nothing new on this topic

    Thanks for supporting it in the future

    OPUS codec

    OPUS is a new codec from the Xiph guys who are behind the Vorbis and Theora projects. http://www.opus-codec.org/ OPUS is a low delay royalty-free open source lossy audio codec which was initially developed for telecommunication purposes but as it turned out it's very good for archiving and streaming purposes aswell. It can be used to encode music, speech and mixed content. It's actually two codecs integrated into one: CELT (the pilot codec behind OPUS) and SILK (originally used by Skype for speech encoding). It can target bitrates from 6kbps to 510kbps and has VBR and CBR modes. Tests shows that Opus easily outperforms HE-AAC at 64kbps (http://people.xiph.o...eg/opus/ha2011/) and scales very well with bitrate. It also has a very good error correction mechanism for streaming. The codec just became an IETF standard and the latest Foobar beta now includes a decoder built in. There's an exp branch which focuses on optimizing the quality (similar to aoTuV by Vorbis). I think it would be a very cool addition to Poweramp to support this codec. It is embedded system friendly; as i know there's already an integer only decoder available in the source package. What do you think? HydrogenAudio guys are very excited about the codec http://www.hydrogena...showtopic=86580

    PowerAMP v1.4 build-368

    Very nice update, thank you! WavPack support is what i was waiting for. I can start converting my lossless collection to hybrid lossless format finally. I'm embedding cover art with mp3tag (APEv1 format), but Poweramp doesn't display covers from .wv files. Am i doing something wrong or Poweramp can't handle covers in this file type? Also is it normal that embedded CUE data is not recognized? I've some gapeless albums which i prefer to encode in one big file and use a CUE file. CUE is only recognized if it's available next the audio file but not inside tags.
  10. Sounds great Thank you, and please keep us informed.
  11. Any chance for this function to get implemented? I got the watch now. At least a public API for Poweramp would be nice, so other apps could controll it and listen to track change events through Intents. I think i could write a little glue app then to send data from Poweramp to OpenWatch and vica-versa.
  12. Hi, I've just purchased this amazing player. I use it nearly every day with my Galaxy S I wan't to buy a Sony Ericsson bluetooth watch in the near future (from the older MBW series) so i hope you could do something about integration with OpenWatch which already supports a massive amount of applications. You can send Android intents to OpenWatch for text display requests, see the API: http://www.smartmadsoft.com/forum/index ... &topic=151 I think this will do the job for track displays (Meridian is using this API for example) but maybe you could cooperate with smartmadsoft to do a more tighter integration (OpenWatch already has some support for Poweramp using media button emulation). I hope to see this feature in the app soon
