  1. Yeah, I know. Poweramp is the only player I know with that option. I just wanted the one button to do it for me, since I do it so often.
  2. Yeah, but how do you tell PA to return to that shuffle? Because everytime the shuffle switch changes the shuffle is done again, since when you do the shuffle it makes a new list starting from the current track, which would almost always be a new shuffle. We'd need an explicit [return to shuffle] button. Not that I'd mind. I hate reshuffling. Yes, I agree! Making a new shuffle makes it so that tracks already played recently are potentially played again too soon.
  3. I would only wonder if Poweramp could ever guess when you want to reshuffle the playlist, without guessing wrong for someone else. Do I understand right? I feel like I don't. But this... I hate when a music player doesn't shuffle often enough. Ideally, I should never be able to guess what track comes next. My workaround when the shuffle repeats is disabling the shuffle, changing track, and enabling it again; this starts a new shuffle and the current track is the new first track to be played on the new shuffle. I'm having flashbacks to my horrible, old Phillips portable MP3 players. Those would pick like 40 tracks and always shuffle those same 40 tracks until you changed some files on the device. Ugh. This problem persisted and was a thing on absolutely all their MP3 players. Thankfully Poweramp doesn't do that.
  4. Live wallpapers on Android have been a thing only since forever
  5. If I'm honest, I prefer that to shuffling each individual album... But I shuffle all tracks anyway so I don't care. I just want to shuffle the albums with the tracklist still in order. Not to offend Max but, anyone who cares about the artist's intentions would say shuffling the tracklist of an individual album is sacrilege. So I would think that'd be the expected behaviour, so I've always been puzzled about the existence of such a button. Am I the only one who thinks that way? It can't be. Oh well. It's not that big of a deal, I just have to change the shuffle switch once I start the shuffle and go track by track to the start of th- actually maybe I do care a little...
  6. I mean on the screen that shows all your albums! It does shuffle your albums, but it also shuffles each album's tracklist!
  7. No, I mean the button on top of the album list. It starts an album shuffle, but it also shuffles every album's tracklist.
  8. As title says. Nobody ever expects an album's tracklist to be shuffled by default unless they're listening to Gescom's Minidisc. What can I do about it? Is there a setting I'm missing? That button is very useful but afterwards I have to disable track shuffle manually and go to the first track manually which really defeats the purpose of having a shortcut for it. Thank you!
  9. I think Android doesn't support surround output on phones anyway. I don't have a clue about Android TV.
  10. You can sort by a shuffle. This shuffles the order of the tracks on the playlist, so they stay in that order everytime you go back.

    add tiles

    They want Poweramp to add to those tiles. Android apps can add their own quick settings tiles there. They want to add music controls to these tiles.
  12. This 100%. I don't want Poweramp touching my metadata unless given explicit permission. Using it is encouraged, modifying it is not something I ever want. So it should be optional and by default disabled if such a feature ever comes.
  13. I don't think that. That sounds silly when I think of my library. But if it's possible, the option has to be there. It would not work for me, but I assume it would for at least some of the userbase of the app. But anyways, the logical thought I have goes genre>track rather than genre>album>track, so I think that is more important first. It's already there though, so not relevant here.
  14. For a fallback that's pretty advanced. Sounds good to me, but again, as a fallback.
  15. In that case listing it as exactly "Various Artists" is a better option I think, seeing as the MusicBrainz standard is that. MusicBrainz is very popular. Trust MusicBrainz.
  16. No, I disagree (as usual...) All artists on the release should be aggregated into the credits. That would give trouble when displaying it, but displaying only the first artist and discarding the rest feels like a disservice to the person who tagged the tracks in the first place. If displaying all of them is not an option, I would rather neither be shown. In that case expect the user to add an albumartist tag and don't falsely interpret the tags in the meantime. Also, displaying the most appearing artist on the album is an option. It's not like code can't calculate that, and I reckon it's not particularly hard either. Actually I'm pretty sure it's not hard at all, even though I can't code.
  17. I think just knowing where all tracks are on every playlist is the right way to go. That's too much to ask for though, when you have too many playlists. So I think this is a legitimate request. The real problem is, where is there even space for that button… Every button you add makes all other buttons less easy to find. And what would the results screen even look like?
  18. I feel like it's going too far with Poweramp… If it can be added in then great, but if not, perhaps Kodi would be a better fit for you? I mean, it runs on Android too… No notifications though. And the cover artwork in the Now Playing screen is far too small, and I'm obsessed with those. Otherwise, I would have jumped ship long ago. I wonder how many, or which tags DLNA can serve though. I feel like Poweramp would lose many of it's useful features on such sources.
  19. This would be absolutely useless with (and please excuse me if you don't like the term) IDM. Still, if the tracks lend themselves to it, it'd be a cool feature. But perhaps, an external app should do this job? IDK, you tell me. If not, I don't suppose it's too hard to code?
  20. Well that's nice then :V thank you!
  21. Well, with a sample size of two people, one of which doesn't even really care, it's hard to say… I don't even have to say it, but almost all of the userbase has done that already, I'm sure.
  22. Poweramp ought to do more with the tags it's provided. Whether they're one-source like iTunes downloads, standardized like MusicBrainz tagged files, or completely manually placed there like Andre and some other people, Poweramp should pay attention to the tags to sort the music it's provided with. Poweramp is for people like Andre, though, that use only what the standard provides them with and expects standard behaviour 100% of the time. We need a music player that uses tags like multi-genres, albumartistsort and MusicBrainz IDs. I don't know that Poweramp is that player but it'd surely be nice. One day I'll learn to code and make it myself. No mediastore, completely FOSS, and probably hated by people that tag their music manually and expect simple behaviour. …Oh, the genre tags? Yeah, Poweramp should support multiple instances of the same tag, specially when it's genre tags because music is not universally one-genre per track and that's an universal fact, so I think it's essential and Poweramp should implement it. Andre… Those are… multiple selected tracks's tags…
  23. Does that really mean anything? I mean, it's still a way to sort the files. I'm gonna go ahead and say that the overall Poweramp userbase does not care as long as it isn't in the U section, and even then nobody has said anything about it until now. Those who do care probably either: 1) want to see those immediately to fix it, or 2) want to keep it at hand because they're not going to fix the tags. The Venn diagram between this one and Poweramp users is probably two separate circles. You want to hide it in case you're not going to fix the tags immediately, but are probably going to fix them later on and don't want to make your library look ugly. I would guess a good portion of the userbase would rather know immediately whether their tags are wrong, like me, and another good portion would rather hide it away, like you. I think this ought to be another optional feature, if it really matters, which it probably doesn't so I'm not going to bother Max about it.
  24. @andrewilley In my opinion, general categories should be immediately visible, not hidden away at the end because you don't know they're there. You know your album artists are filling up your albums by artist category. For the unknown, however, you'd have to guess that the Unknown artist category is at the end. Hell, you have to guess that it's at the 'U' point. It makes sense to you to put it at the end because you would actually know that it's at the end and you don't want to see it. What about the rest of the userbase?
  25. @andrewilley At the end? That'd be damn confusing. At the start, maybe.
