    I see what you mean here. I'm adding a specific logic to limit artists/albums shuffling to just that given artist (alternatively, there will be other artist albums, but only when given target artist albums finished - so <<< >>> buttons are not blocked and continue to navigate further),

    + I'm adding option to shuffle strictly all (artist) songs when shuffle button is pressed in artist albums page (so shuffle button behaves the same way as shuffle button in artist/all songs page).

    Can you fix this for genres too. I d/l'ed the latest version and I thought the above fix would fix this for genres but it doesn't.

    LOL, I just spent the last ten minutes testing and could only get it to work the way I described to you above. I was just about to post asking you for more info on your system including your PA version, but looks like you've solved it anyway.

    What PA version were you on by the way, as some changes were made to the shuffle code around six months ago (around build 820, whenever the Settings > Library > Lists > Shuffle Category Songs option was added anyway) but I can't see why you would have been on a very old release prior to those changes.


    Sorry, still doesn't work when trying to shuffle a genre. V3-830 on a stock LG Escape 3 running Android 6.0.

    Still getting the "shuffle songs and categories" flyover when I hit the shuffle button. 

    From that other thread, it sounded like the issue was fixed. What was said was that the issue was fixed for artists. I figured the issue would be fixed for genres too. Apparently not.

  3. Reading the link to the other discussion above it seems this issue has been fixed. I uninstalled my present player and installed the latest version and it does seem to be fixed. Thanks so much for this and sorry to have bothered you about this.

    It's not hard. Go into the Artist library view and find the artist to want to listen to. You can then listen to all of their songs in one of two ways:

    • To listen to all of their albums - either in order or shuffled - tap on either the 'Play' or 'Shuffle' icon at the top of the album-list screen.
    • To listen to all of their songs, first tap on 'All Artist Songs' to see the full songs list by that artist, and then tap 'Play' or 'Shuffle' at the top of the screen to play all of the songs either in order or shuffled.

    Hint: If you never want to use that first option and ALWAYS want the artist's whole song collection to be played without any album grouping, go into Settings > Library > Lists, and enable 'Shuffle Category Songs'. That will save you that extra step in future of going into the 'All Artist Songs' list. However personally I prefer to have the option to do it either way. 


    Sorry, but that just doesn't work. I hit shuffle and a song from the category starts playing and a flyover pops up and says "shuffle all songs and categories". And then it plays songs from all categories, exactly what I don't want it to do.

    Neither does it work if you choose play first then hit shuffle. If I long press on shuffle, choosing "shuffle all" or "shuffle songs" again plays everything.

    And why the extra step of hitting "all <category> songs"? I've already done that when I chose the category. It's a stupid, redundant step to take.

    Now, either my installation is bad which I doubt because others are complaining about the same thing, or this version of the player has a serious problem.

  5. Adding: This is my usual method of playing. Thinking I'm going to have to choose a different player if this issue isn't corrected.

    Frankly, everything about this new version seems to have been made more difficult. KISS.

  6. The path is the phone's standard memory, Internal Storage/Download.

    I don't know about changing file or folder permissions on an android OS. Like I said, it used to work fine.

    The files themselves are all podcasts of at least an hour in length and play fine in the standard android music player, which sucks because the player must always remain on top to play.

  7. LG Escape 3/K373

    Android 6.0

    Poweramp V. 3, Build 823

    I have two folders checked in the folders hierarchy, Downloads in the phone's memory, and Music on the SD card. I've triple checked the folders are chosen and done several full rescans. Poweramp will not show or recognize the Download folder to allow me to choose files from there. If I go to the download folder, choose a file, and choose Poweramp to play it, Poweramp pops up but then does nothing, just showing the last file played. This used to work on the prior version but I'm not sure when it stopped working.

    Bug has been reported but any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
