    Poweramp Build 839

    Hey, it's me again! This time I'm with what might be a real bug But the thing is, that's actually a very cool bug, lol Just play a music, select a visualization and keep the visualization option on "Fade Controls", now just wait for the controls and album art to fade and click on where the album art would be. Now you'll have a list with a dynamic background. Although that's a bug, it's actually very interesting, lol. For me this just happens on the first level tho, if I go back one folder by swiping left or right, it goes back to the normal behavior.

    Poweramp Build 839

    The other thing I've noticed is actually for a long time already, not exclusive to this build but since Poweramp got support for wavepack5. It's just a strange behavior with the music length, it doesn't affect anything with the exception of that feature that remembers where you stopped on a long file, used for podcasts. So, for example, the audio time is 4m09s, but if you skipped to another track on the 1m mark, when you get back it will start from where you stopped. Even tho this feature is settled for 30min+ files for me. But other than this and the weird time stamp, everything play and work fine. Oh also, this just happens on the music library, when you play the file, the now playing screen shows it correctly and seems to happen at random. Happens more time than not and it seems to pick a specific file to do this... I have other wavpack files that never happened and others that on each build they cycle between happening or not. Already tried changing the name and tags, re encoding them, changing the source file and even the encoder, it simply doesn't change at all. The files in which this is most likely to happen is wavpack files with DSD streams on it.

    Poweramp Build 839

    Yo, almost everything seems to be working fine so far, and the equalizer/tone values are very helpful now, I'll redo my equalizer settings later to get more precision But there's two things I noticed that seems weird. One is, when you click on the equalizer button, from the bottom navbar, the animation is fine but when you go back to the now playing screen, from the equalizer screen, the transition is very sharp The blurred background simply pops in without any animation at all as soon as you click the button to go back, but the rest of the UI do the animation. It didn't happened on previous builds. This is 100% reproducible as it always happen. Video included. It's not a player breaking feature, but maybe it weren't supposed to act this way? I mean, the older builds the blurred background had a fade in animation as well... I'll say the other one on another post to not make this yet longer LG G7, Stock LG UI ROM, Android 8.0.0, Poweramp V3 build 839 20190731_073840.mp4

    I couldn't had said it better. That's a good point, although I don't use streaming services for movies and things like this, I always listen to people talking about things they like and aren't available anymore. And about the purchased point, that's a dangerous word. "Purchased", as it is not really yours and it's not on your hands. It's almost like "you think you purchased but it's still in our domains and we can do whatever we want with it". Again, I couldn't had said that better. And there's yet more, with the passing of the years, sometimes it's really nice to find that movie or that disc you once loved or had good memories about it. I have myself for example, some CDs from when I was a child and I remember listening them with my mother, and although I can find them digitally, it's just not the same thing... There's some emotional value attached to them as well. And as you said, well, it's ours, there's no expiring date, there's no risk of "the service stopping", there's no additional fees, and if taken good care of, it will last for another couple of decades. For me watching it from outside is even kinda funny, but yeah indeed, that's ridiculous. Now you need to install X apps, pay X different services (that do the same thing but has different names) because each piece of media you want is in one of them, that's annoying as hell. I can't even imagine if I were dependant of those services to manage my media as I have quite a few terabytes of. Or maybe not, it could be even easier, I mean, I can't find almost anything I have on those services anyway. Well, back on tracks, yeah nothing as good as having your media (the real "your", things that are on your domain without depending of a subscription) organized on a single player. That's one of the main reasons I'm so linked to Poweramp. The wide range of supported formats, the astonishing playback quality and the nice UI (let's be honest, the UI makes a big difference for everyday use), it's literally one app for all audio needs (non streaming audio obviously). People fill their phones with random stuff (maybe they even have SD card slot but is not being used) and feel completely ok, but downloading music? Oh hell no who does that? Let's leave it for subscription services to deal with, I just want to click one button and have access to "million of albums" in which I'll not listen once in my life. Oh also, they never have problems with internet connection, they'll have everything working perfectly always. Guaranteed.

    I can really relate to that, it's just like me. As we have this problem here with connection speeds, the quality of streaming is just so bad that I prefer downloading my media to watch/listen it. But even when I go to somewhere with good connection speeds, it just isn't as good as downloaded media, period. Principally video, I never had seen any piece of video from any streaming service that weren't bitstarving at some point, and holy moly how that blocky mess makes me uncomfortable even if it's just for some seconds... I can also second this, I have quite a library on my local storages and I carry what I like the most on my phone SD card, occasionally switching some albums for others. It would be really nice to be able to listen them directly from a NAS while at home without losing the quality and without burning internet connection with rocket fuel, but yeah SD cards exist for a reason. It's not like I'm some kind of "people against streaming" ambassador but, yeah it just isn't good enough for me, and looks like I'm not the only one that thinks like this 😄

    What I meant by pointing that is, yeah we are on 2019 and yadda yadda technology but not every place in the world has amazing connection speeds yet, or it might even do but at astronomical prices. Same as not everyone in the world use streaming as it's primary option for music, principally when we're talking about quality stuff. Local streaming is still doable since lan speeds usually are good enough for that even with cheap routers but yeah not much beyond that. Again, Poweramp focus on quality was what brought many of us and is what still keeps many of us. More features are always welcomed but let's not make it into one of those random wannabes that we see on thousands when we search for audio players on the play store...

    The only screen that has a float32 sample format is the AudioTrack Java based output, but it is fixed at 16bit 48k, I can't change anything, with or without the float32 enabled. Also the sound quality is worst even than the native OpenSL output. On pretty much any other screen it looks like this. The exception is they don't let me change the sample rate, only the hi-res output let me do so (this screenshot was taken there)

    Poweramp Build 836

    Kind of, it looks very nice in my opinion on some occasions (like a folder with files from multiple albums and the folders screen itself), plus it gives more space to show the name of the file/folder which is very helpful, on my case I have a lot of files with really long tags, usually Japanese names, on the album name or the artists and so on. As weird as it may look, yeah that's kinda what I'm asking for. Also we can't deny it looks better than the actual list-compact (which is the one that gives most room for file/folder names, but has a ridiculously small album art) and the list-small which also has a weirdly small album art. Even that the style I've been asking for cuts the album art, it's still easier to identify than the other modes mentioned, aren't? Edit: also, that's not really a skin thing, it has to be implemented on the player itself, the skins will just need to have support for it. At least I haven't found a skin yet that has custom folder views all by itself...

    Bit improving

    I've always felt weird about the output showing 24 bit whether the file were 24 bit or not, so I actually am up with that too... I do have quite a few 32 bit wav files and even some 32 bit wavepack files (.wv) as well, and although it probably isn't something to bug about, it does feel strange looking at Poweramp saying the file is 32 bit but output is only 24... I'm on LG G7 and if I remember correctly it does have a 32bit dac. Don't get me wrong, the sound is still amazing and Poweramp works as perfectly as it should, but yeah sometimes the mind just don't let that info slide lol

    Poweramp Build 836

    That skipping problem from the SoX resampler seems to be solved as it didn't happened to me again so far... I haven't been listening as much as I was on the older version but I already did for enough time to see it's not happening. I'm actually here to, forgive me, request something. I did it two times already on the requests channel but it was completely lost the two times, so I'm risking on doing it here... Back on Poweramp V3 build 790, there was a viewing style for the songs and folders that I really miss a lot. I don't even know its name since on that version the menu with the viewing styles weren't functional yet. I've used it not for long since it just appeared on that specific version, but that completely captured my heart and I miss that viewing style since the very day Poweramp graduated from V3 b790. I'm attaching the screenshot link to the post. Forgive me I know it's not the right place but, the other times it got lost so here it may get more visibility...

    I do agree that cloud support would be interesting but I wouldn't trade the Poweramp focus on quality to focus on streaming... The option that appeals to me is streaming from local storage, I have a lan server (smb and ftp) with my terabyte of music but I have absolutely no problem on copying my favorite music to my phone storage and sd card to listen to it, principally considering almost all of my library is hi-res. That's actually I nice thing, it's good to think about what you want to carry with you. Also for this Unfortunately not everyone can relate as, for example, my connection still comes from the telephone cable with the max speed of 1,2mbytes/s for download, which is very rare to it work at that rate, and the upload is a fraction of that. As much as connection and wireless technologies had evolved over the years, there's still places where internet connection isn't as easy or it's so bad that you would prefer not having internet at all than dealing with what you can get.

    Poweramp Build 834

    I'm on LG G7 and until now I never had this problem, but on 834 and 833 both versions, some tracks aren't fully played. This seems to be completely random as I can't just reproduce it on my own. All my library seems to be affected as I've been trying to listen different albums and still happens... Already did a few full rescans, rebooted the phone, cleaned cache stuff, with or without eq, reverb, balance, tone, it simply keeps happening. Sometimes there's also a floating message saying that Poweramp failed to play the file and them it skips a few files before playing again. My files are mostly hi-res Flac files but also noticed it happening with WAV and even cue split TAK files. Unfortunately I don't think I can send files since I have ridiculous upload rates, but again this seems completely random to happen, and those same files never had problems before. LG G7, Stock LG UI ROM on Android 8.0.0, using Hi-Res output (usually I change the SR to match the files on the album manually), SoX resampler, Poweramp 833 and 834 [Edit: forgot to mention, I usually keep the sample rate at 96 or 88.2khz for the few non hi-res files I carry with me, so I think most of the time the resampler aren't even used...? I also use the improved-e-weighted noise shaping dither] I do play by folders only, which has just the album files on each folder. No playlists nor shuffle features. [Edit: managed to get a picture of it happening. This album is on normal 16-44 flac files. If I just click on the skipped file it will play normally tho]
  13. When you are ok with the new stuff on the supposed "world" of people who aren't, and didn't made an account on the forum just to complain about that: Feels good man e.e But seriously, the world is rotating, and things change like you or not. The world is also not you so if you aren't happy with that go complain with your God or something. There's a few points that I too would like to change on V3 but it's minor stuff and I've been using the app without a problem when it comes to UI. Just want to finish this random comment with a bright "Thank You" to Max, that is being very patient and didn't dropped the app. Also Andre that is too being very patient with all this stuff, lol The UI is nice enough and the sound is astonishing, just deal with it.

    Missing library view option

    It's a request I've done already a few time ago, but feeling like it was probably lost on the request sea, I'm doing it again. Basically, it's a list view for library like on V3 build 790. This mode for some reason only appears on that version, no other V2 or V3 has it, and I do really miss that library view mode... This is the same screenshot for that other request. As it's said, for some reason, the only version of Poweramp that it ever shows is the V3 build 790.

    Poweramp Build 809

    @db7 I use some WavPack files and they work fine, since a few ones on a folder with various other file formats to folders with wavpack files only. Including WavPack files with DSD streams on them. The only ones that doesn't work is files with extra processing (the -x1~6 line). Other than this they seem to be working nicely here since the support were added a few versions ago... Did you tried some full rescans? Usually after some update the first thing I do is a full rescan without rush, it was said on the update notes that a full rescan probably would be necessary for those files to appear. The file on the screenshot is a WavPack file containing a DSD64 stream on it, it play perfectly fine since build 806 and appear on the library. LG G7, Stock LG UI ROM, no root, Poweramp V3 build 809
