  1. Please confirm that you are doing a "full rescan" and not just a rescan. The full rescan is triggered from the bottom of the library settings page. Kim
  2. I know, it's just exiting the user interface, but there is something in the logic of PA that causes me to back out of it way to often, and then I have to either dig it out from recently used apps or move to the home screen where I have the widget to get into the UI again... I don't know why I keep on doing it, but it's killing me. I must admit that I haven't earlier noted that back is not back, as I'm used to hit the mini player to get back to the main player screen. It's probably better for people like me (musik organized in a Artist/Album hierarchy and basically always using Folder Hierarchy mode) that back acts as up instead of back. Workflow for switching to another album: Tap album cover to get to folder list Back once or twice, depending on if I want to just switch album or artist Enter new folder to be played Tap the first track which starts the track and takes me back to the main screen With this workflow it would be very irritating that back would be back as then I would just be switching between player screen and current category and would have to start using up button in the library. We had a discussion a while ago about having "play" in the pop up context menus, in my workflow it's more intitutive to long press the folder and hit play, instead of entering it and then click on the first item to play it, now I'm used to entering the folder but I do still miss the play button. This made me aware of the fact that people use tools in different ways, depending on how you select what to listen to, size of library, library organization etc. Kim

    Poweramp Build 828

    This is also number one on my wish list, I really hate "being thrown" out of the app by hitting back one time to much! I'm standing on my knees beging for the option to disable the exit... it would really be an early Christmas gift for me to get this implemented... I wonder what it would take to bribe Max to add this? Kim
  4. @maxmp is there any chance that we could bribe you to add a possibility to disable the "exit" button within Poweramp? Default behaviour for back button would be to take you back one screen at the time and once on the start screen another back would close the app, just as it's today. Alternate would be to take you back one screen at the time until the start screen, once there it would just do nothing or ask if you want to exit the app. Please... Kim

    Poweramp Build 828

    @maxmp not sure if the MusixMatch support is new for this version or not, but anyway a BIG thank you for adding this, it's something that I have really been missing since abandoing the 2.0. Kim

    Music ''jumps'' after update in Xiaomi Note 6 Pro

    I have a MiMax3 running 9 PKQ1.181007 recently upgraded from Android 8 which runs PA without any issues. Have you tried to uninstall and re-install PA after upgrading your phone? There is a per app "background limitations" under battery optimization in phone setting that might down prioritize PA if those settings are active. Kim

    mp3 tags not scanned on new music on SD card

    Same result, I did just a sdcard to sdcard copy of a couple of tracks into a test folder with music running. Tracks shows up in PA with blank tags, renaming the folder from the filemanager causes the tags to be properly read.
  8. Hi, Device: Xiaomi MiMax3, stock Android 9 Poweramp: Build 828 Workflow: I have all my music stored on a NAS device in a artist/album hierarchy. The entire hierarchy is replicated to the phone using FolderSync pro. Issue: When new tracks are added then: PA doesn't read the tags on tracks copied to the SD card. Files copied to internal memory are properly read. I don't have this issue on my Samsung xcover3. It's not an SD card issue as the files copied from SD card -> internal memory are fine. When did it start?: I know for sure that the workflow has been working and unfortunately I'm not sure when it broke. I have had quite a lot of changes done in my setup recently. Laptop used to copy CD's to MP3 has been replaced, NAS device has been upgraded from ARM based to Intel based Debian and with this the mp3 tools used has been upgraded. Phone OS upgraded from Android 8 to 9... Workaround: Full rescan will pick up tags, but I don't want to rescan 7000 tracks everytime files are added. Rescan in the folder doesn't work. (Proposal rescan launched in a folder should do a full rescan of the folder where it's launched) Tags are picked up by PA if the directory is re-named and named back in the filemeanager after the file has been copied to the device. Replicatable: Yes, it happens every time when new tracks are copied to the SD card. Same thing happens if a directory is copied on the device, if a copy is made of a music dir, then PA will see the files and play them, tags are not picked up unless I do rename the folder. Assumption: PA scans the file before it has been completly copied and therefore the meta data isn't available when the file is scanned? Kim
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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 $
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
