  1. In the new v3 beta of the Poweramp, it is now failing to add to the playlists where the meta data of two audio files are the same. I record podcasts off various sources. Where files appear identical, Poweramp now ignores them when adding a music folder to a playlist. Take 2 files: “001 – Money Box Live.mp3” Artist=BBC Title=”Money Box “ Album=”001 Money Box” Size =32,897kb “012 – Money Box Live.mp3” Artist=BBC Title=”Money Box “ Album=”012 Money Box” Size =32,892kb Whilst all the files will be added to the playlist, the above 2 files are ignored. I assume because they have the same Artist and Track title. They will play if selected manually but just will not add to the playlist. Annoying.
  2. I have to say first off, I am NOT a fan of the new Poweramp. There was nothing wrong with the old software. If it isn’t broke, why fix (or in this case, break) it? So having spent a few days with it, I notice that the playlist settings are very broken. In the old system, I could reorder it with ease, and it stuck with that ordering. Now, it seems to do what it wants. Under old system – goto folders, select a folder, add to playlist. Go to playlists, find play list, select it, select options, resort, sort by album, click playlist – it starts playing, in album order. And it sticks to this order. Under new system - goto folders, select a folder, add to playlist. Go to playlists, find play list, select it, select options, resort, sort by album, click playlist – it starts playing, in album order. BUT, whilst the initial playing is in TRUE album order, if the playback is paused (say you turn off Bluetooth speaker, headset or switch off connected car), when it starts again, the order is changed and seems to have changed but takes off either numeric parts of albums, or is sorting it in track order, or is random. So an album of “21 dreams” now seems to be sorted with the other “d” albums (not at the front). Not sure what the order is, but it is no longer in the true album order first selected.
