  1. I had a stab at the (https://www.sendspace.com/file/evvj3n) and the verdict is that there is something broken in the meta data of the file. Conclusion after quite some messing around with the file is that: eyeD3 reads only the title, year, track and disc tags, basically the same info that PA is able to read from the file. id3v2 reads all the tags in the file. mid3v2 reads all tags but the UFID tag. What's interesting is that after adding and removing a TPE3 header to the file with id3v2 all the tags becomes readable in all tools including PA, so there is something garbled in the id3 header which is fixed by modifying a tag in the file. mid3v2 is also able to read the UFID tag after this operation.
  2. I'm frequently "backing" my self out of Power Amp, I'm not sure what does it, but it's annoying as h*ll... I would love the optional "do you wan't to exit" dialog.
  3. Did Poweramp read the tags properly on your old device? Did you have the same version of PA on the old device? Could you share one of the problematic files?
  4. I checked one of the files with various tag tools under linux, most of them showed the tags ok. eyeD3 failed to display any tags at all. id3v2 showed that most of the tags are twice in the file. What I find strange is that no other tool reading raw tags showed the duplicates. $ id3v2 -l "01 Invisible Colony.mp3" id3v2 tag info for 01 Invisible Colony.mp3: TIT2 (Title/songname/content description): Invisible Colony TPE1 (Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)): Strike Anywhere TALB (Album/Movie/Show title): Iron Front TRCK (Track number/Position in set): 1/13 TPOS (Part of a set): 1/1 TYER (Year): 2009 TCON (Content type): Melodic Hardcore (255) TENC (Encoded by): iTunes 9.0.2 COMM (Comments): ()[eng]: 0000388A 000031F9 000117E8 0000D181 00001A87 00001A87 00008CDB 00008BC9 0000881F 000063E5 COMM (Comments): ()[eng]: 00000000 00000210 00000834 000000000034BABC 00000000 0029B8C6 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 UFID (Unique file identifier): http://www.cddb.com/id3/taginfo1.html, 54 bytes APIC (Attached picture): ()[, 0]: PNG, 179733 bytes COMM (Comments): ()[eng]: 1 PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) TPUB (Publisher): B9R PRIV (Private frame): (unimplemented) COMM (Comments): (iTunes_CDDB_IDs)[eng]: 13+6F4E94EEF25EAAE1384A6F335A0D009A+13794664 TPOS (Part of a set): 1/1 TRCK (Track number/Position in set): 1/13 TIT2 (Title/songname/content description): Invisible Colony TYER (Year): 2009 APIC (Attached picture): ()[, 0]: image/jpeg, 227852 bytes TALB (Album/Movie/Show title): Iron Front TPE1 (Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)): Strike Anywhere TPE2 (Band/orchestra/accompaniment): Strike Anywhere TCON (Content type): Melodic Hardcore (255) 01 Invisible Colony.mp3: No ID3v1 tag $
  5. Tag data doesn't necessarily affect file size as there is a reserved space for tag data in the files. Could you check the md5 sum on the original file and the file on your phone, that will show if the files are identical. What format are the problematic files in? You could also try to install https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.mediaarea.mediainfo on your device, and see if MediaInfo is able to read the tags from your files.
  6. I had roughly 20 out of 6500 tracks "corrupted" when I took my new phone into use and I don't believe PA caused it. My method of data transfer is to launch the built in ftp server on the Mi Max, and then ftp the files to the device. I assume the data copy to the device did something silly to the files as all meta data where gone for the 20 files. What I did to resolve the problem was that I did go into the unknown folder, deleted all the files in there and re-synchronized the deleted files back to the phone.
  7. If I remember correctly VLC media player has on screen volume control. Sliding up and down on right hand side of the screen or so controls volume.

    Edit playlist

    You can't group playlists but you can add the tracks from one playlist to another playlist, long press the source playlist and then add it to a new or existing list. This method is also usable for converting a m3u list into a Poweramp playlist, just long press the m3u and select add to playlist.
  9. Hi, Could you please make the lyrics viewer refresh on track change? Now you have to close the lyrics viewer and re-open it on every track change. Kim

    How to properly use TPE tags

    Thanks! *sigh* for some reason EAC has mixed the order of TPE1 and TPE2... I will release the fury of a script on my various artist folders and swap the order of the fields. What is the right thing for single artist albums, should TPE1 and TPE2 then be set to the artist name?

    How to properly use TPE tags

    @maxmp could you please help me with this, how should I use the TPE1 and TPE2 tags?
  13. How about a dynamic category, call it something like "Now Playing", it would show a number of tracks backwards and then what's next to be played.

    Multiple composers

    Flac allows for multiple tags, doesn't require unique tags. MP3 only allows one instance of most tags, but the data can be separated into multiple values. In v2.3 TPE1 and TCOM can have multiple values, separated by "/" character. (Wonder just how AC/DC is supposed to be handled. In v2.4 multiple values should be separated by a null character.

    Have you set the library options, un-check the categories that you don't use and then long press playlist to make that default.
