  1. Oooh! Added in the most recent build I see. Build 821. Nice...
  2. I've been thinking more about this and perhaps even the ability to bookmark your current location in a playlist before switching to another playlist would serve the same purpose.
  3. Thanks! So far this seems to work - and yes, Hi-res. I'll post back in the next few days if further testing proves problematic. Curious as to the change requiring this setting to now solve a problem which didn't seem to be there before.
  4. If I use Google Play Music then close it down and switch to Poweramp, sound from Poweramp will not play through my Bluetooth headset. I can still control volume and track advance, but sound only comes through my phone speaker. I have tried various things (dis/reconnecting the headset, changing SmartThings settings & even disabling SmartThings, turning Bluetooth for the phone off and back on etc) in an attempt to get the sound playing through the headset again but the only thing I've found that works is rebooting the phone. But once I use Google Play Music again the problem returns when I try to use Poweramp again afterwards. This hasn't been a problem until recently, 815 I think, but Google Play Music also released an update earlier this month. However, I use both apps on a daily basis and haven't noticed this problem until very recently - perhaps 2 or 3 days ago. I use both Poweramp (815) and Google Play Music on my Galaxy S9+ so I can run two playlists and keep the current location (playing song) for both lists.

    Crashing on Oreo

    I'm having problems with the app crashing on my new phone sporting Oreo as well. Phone/Model: Samsung Galaxy S9+ SM-G965U1 OS: Oreo v8.0.0 Android security patch level: Feb 1, 2018 Poweramp version: alpha-build-703-play (Full Version) What's happening: After a reboot Poweramp starts up normally, once. If I close the app and try to re-open it I'm met with a black screen and have a few minutes a message from Android pops up indicating the app isn't responding, do I want to close it down or wait. I can close it down and reopen it and after several attempts it will finally work. If I keep Poweramp running "in the background" I have no problems with it. (I've started using the "Lock apps" option in Android so when I "close all" it keeps Poweramp running.) Background/Info: When I first installed Poweramp on this phone I didn't notice any issues at all. I'm not sure if this is a coincidence, but around the time the Feb security patch installed this issue cropped up. Another change I made around the same time was to change all 5,000 or so MP3 files I have on the phone to the FLAC format. And when I did so I imbedded album art in the tag of each FLAC file - I did not do that when using MP3s. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Poweramp. I have tried doing the same thing while deleting the old settings file and starting from scratch with settings. I have tried importing settings from the prior install after a clean install. I have also tried disabling the "auto scan" option in Poweramp. None of these efforts have made a difference. Oh, and Poweramp is installed on internal storage. EDIT: I see this topic has been brought up elsewhere as well - thought I did so good posting in a thread I found as opposed to starting a new thread! Ugh... Etc...
  6. Current behavior: While playing from playlist #1 I pause playback and start playback from playlist #2. After some time I return to playlist #1 and the default is to play from the first song in playlist #1. Desired option: Remember the song playlist #1 was at so when I return I can continue listening where I left off. Background: I currently have a Walking playlist which I like to return to, well, whenever I go walking - but I like to be able to listen from where I left off without having to remember the location (I'm old hehe) instead of listening to the first several songs of the playlist over and over without hearing the rest. The reason I have to switch playlists is because I have a different one for when I go to sleep. I'm currently using a second music player app because of this.
