  1. I know, so many "hidden" cool features and shortcuts. This one is very helpful, especially for longer tracks that can't be moved back to the start in a single motion.
  2. Seems to look good with the latest update. One small bug with this though, seems long press on the elapsed time is not working to restart the song. It works in the default position.
  3. Ya not worth it just for that. But thanks for looking into it.
  4. Not sure this is the same issue. AFAIK the Bluetooth data is passed as separate fields. The combined string of Artist - Album is just on the Now Playing page for Poweramp. I have two cars with Bluetooth, both show 4/5 separate fields distinctly with Playlist, Title, Album, Artist, and Genre (genre is only in the Jeep, not my Buick). @dirkbeen are you using Android Auto when this happens, or some other interface?
  5. The bounce and bottom selection are fixed, thanks @flyingdutchman. I can't see anything with the bounce either, but many of my backgrounds colours are black or transparent. Which setting would affect the bounce colour? I mentioned a long time ago, I think the only thing I'd really like to have a switch for is the location of the Visual/ Sleep/ Repeat/ Shuffle buttons and track counter to be able to move above the album art. One other V3 skin had this once upon a time but has not been supported at all, and with many of the PA updates the functionality of that skin is broken.
  6. Ya maybe not, on a second look the slider is also right at the bottom of the list but also stops above the mini player in the $Yaps$ skin too. But it is like the last item extends past the slider for some reason. The default skins and a half dozen others I have tried all seem to work as expected. Thought I had something for you there.
  7. @flyingdutchman I was just confirming that I was having the exact same issue as @andrewilley It looks to have something to do with the sidebar slider on the right. Other skins seems to show this visibly when scrolling, and the bottom stops before the mini player. Is this something that can be defined in the skin? Perhaps that would work.
  8. @flyingdutchman I am seeing the same thing in all lists that extend longer than the first screen.
  9. @flyingdutchman the option to move them lower isn't working, perhaps because I have the volume bar on to replace the seekbar? I'm fine where they are, it would just help if they could choose a background colour separately from the buttons. Not a dealbreaker, just noticed it when changing the waveseek colour.
  10. Very cool, love the choices for the waveseek bar. Couldn't find it at first though, thought it would be in the top waveseek options in the menu. The elapsed and remaining times are hard to see. I have the button backgrounds all set to transparent, but it would be great if you could add a separate control for the time backgrounds.
  11. @QnD Long press the repeat button on the Now Playing screen, and choose the arrow to "Advance Category" - this will move to the next item in whatever list you are working from. To ensure albums are played in order, you can also long press the shuffle button and turn Shuffle Off.
  12. @Sinner43 The download for trial is free, did you not do this prior to buying the unlocker? I'm pretty sure the description of the product clearly states that it is a music media player for your personal library. If you are listening to YTM or Spotify, they have their own app. What would you expect PA to do any differently?
  13. Lol No size comps. Just referencing that PA is more than capable with a very large library.😋 @Microft glad you got it sorted out👍
  14. No issues at all with far more folders and files in PA!
  15. Confirmed, seeing the same issue with the last track in a list covered. Only if the list is long enough to require scrolling.
  16. @6b6561 You are correct that ultimately it really comes down to your personal preference. For my library I use the release year of the album. Even with true compilations (like soundtracks and mixed artist releases) and typical greatest hits packages that may be decades apart from the original release year, it keeps the order of your albums intact. There is a value for original year in the id3 spec but I don't think there are too many players out there that use it.
  17. BTW I have Android and IOS devices on the go, both work with the tagging details I have been including for years. I just make sure to rip and tag everything accurately first in a temporary desktop folder. Then I can add to iTunes (managed by iTunes🤯) and have my Asset and Plex servers pick up the newly added tracks from that library. Once it has been copied, I clean up the temp folder and repeat next time I buy more discs. For PA, I simply drag and drop what I want to my uSD card from the library whenever I want to add new music for my phone. No further changes or updates required.
  18. In these cases, depending on the player of course, that may not help. But as long as the separator exists in the tag and the player supports it, then it will work. And if not at least the first artist in the SortArtist field will be in the correct place, assuming it is treated as a single content field. For the record, iTunes itself doesn't support any multiple content in any fields, and simply looks at the separator as a standard character. So fields with extra artists are listed as one long field. But in other players they are separated and browsed under each separated artist. The TSOP field should be treated no differently in my opinion. But if it isn't in the plan for PA, I guess that is irrelevant.🤔
  19. Same way the Artist tag is managed using the separator. For example; John Lennon/Paul McCartney Lennon, John/McCartney, Paul
  20. Not so rare, IOS devices have been using all of these for many years. Many DLNA servers also use them like Asset UPnP, Plex, etc. The fallback when files do not have these sort tags is to default back to the standard equivalent tag. I really hope @maxmp has this on the ToDo list and adds it in the near future.
  21. I have been using iTunes for a very long time. In the beginning I had struggles it fought it's own file system, versus WMP, and others. What I found early on was to only let one player manage the file locations (which I choose to be iTunes since I had multiple other iDevices and AppleTV units all talking to the main library) and have all others only have read access. Since then I have not had an issue, going on 10+ years. As mentioned by others already, you can export any playlist from iTunes, even the "Smart" ones. The links.willmpoint to the files in the library, and assuming iTunes is in control they will all be in the right place for copying and pasting to your phone media. @bloodw3rx I think what you are seeing is one location where most of your files have been managed, and the iTunes location where the files would be if either you downloaded those from the Apple store, or had them managed by iTunes in the past. You may need to use whatever media player manager you prefer now to consolidate your collection files to one place, then have your iTunes redirected to find those tracks again. Might be a pain, but long term may help.
