  1. Are Streams included in the settings export or is there another way to export and import them onto a new device? A way I could imagine is to collect all Streams to one single playlist and export that. But a separate export option for Streams would be much more comfortable. Thanks in advance.
  2. @maxmp Thank you for the quick fix with the Builds 872-873.
  3. @maxmp thanks for the hint. I didn't know that this option in settings exists at all.
  4. In my case I'm unable to delete streams in the Streams category itself. As you can see on the attached screenshot the button "delete" in the context menu is greyed out. Regards
  5. Thanks for your reply. I noticed that I'm not able to delete streams which where added via "add URL" in the Streams category. If I select such kind of stream the button "delete" in the context menu is greyed out. Regards
  6. What's the exact logic behind the relation of Playlists and Streams categories? I know that I could add online radio streams in Playlists category before Streams category was introduced anyway. But why does this option still exist though there is an separate category for Streams? Aren't entries in Streams category saved permanently, if not added via Playlists category? I would prefer that only my Playlists of local music were stored in the Playlists category. If I delete a playlist of a stream in Playlists category, will it remain permanently in Streams category anyway or will it disappear after rescan? Thanks in advance.
  7. Furthermore volume control via hardware buttons doesn't work for chromecast output if the display is on standby. Regards
  8. I notice the above mentioned behavior only once per playback session. Once the bug occurred the volume in the menu of the hardware buttons is synchronized with the volume of Poweramp output via chromecast and after that controlling volume via hardware buttons works fine. Regards
  9. Streaming Poweramp audio via chromecast onto Harman Kardon Citation 500 and 300 works at my place - even though with constant interruptions for unknown reasons (wifi network?, unstable wifi connection of my Huawei p9?, Poweramp?) If you don't have problems streaming to your DAC it should probably work. Regards
  10. If I'm streaming audio via chromecast and try to adjust volume with the hardware buttons of my smartphone the volume jumps usually to very loud. Is there an option in settings I can use to avoid this behavior? Thanks in advance.
  11. Thanks for your clarification, Max. So that could be a reason, why streaming with Poweramp is more prone to interruptions than streaming with VLC player, right? Regards
  12. If I'm streaming online content (radio streams) with Poweramp via chromecast no interruptions occur. I found out that for streaming especially with Poweramp the number of wifi-speakers receiving the chromecast signal is the crucial factor for the wifi-utilization shown in the UI of my router. Section -59 to -47 shows the wifi-utilization while streaming local music with Poweramp to one single wifi-speaker Section -45 to -39 shows the wifi-utilization while streaming local music with Poweramp to two paired wifi-speakers Section -38 to -23 shows the wifi-utilization while streaming local music with Poweramp to three paired wifi-speakers Section -18 to -15 shows the wifi-utilization while streaming online content with Poweramp to three paired wifi-speakers Section -14 to -10 shows the wifi-utilization while streaming online content with Poweramp to two paired wifi-speakers Section -9 to Jetzt shows the wifi-utilization while streaming online content with Poweramp to one single wifi-speaker But for streaming with VLC player via chromecast wifi-utilization is always low as described in my first post regardless of the number of the receiving wifi-speakers. Regards
  13. I'm streaming local music files on all three devices (notebook, tablet and smartphone). While streaming online content with Spotify, Radiodroid or Poweramp (radio streams) no interruptions occur. But I will test this again for Poweramp and turn my attention to the wifi-utilization. Regards
  14. Just to point to some more details: of course the above-mentioned notebook is connected to wifi, though it's the busy 2.4 GHz channel, but nevertheless there are no interruptions while streaming with VLC player via chromecast. Additionally I successfully tested streaming with VLC player via chromecast on the Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70L (2.4 GHz channel) with no interruptions - straight after facing heavy interruptions several times while streaming via chromecast with Poweramp on the same device. Regards
  15. I'm experiencing constant interruptions of playback while streaming Poweramp audio to wifi speakers via chromecast. I tested this on my mobile phone Huawei P9 (EVA-L09, Android 7.0) and a Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70L (Android 6.0). I've already extended my wifi network with an additional 5ghz channel, but that didn't solve the problem. If I'm using VLC player on a notebook for streaming audio via chromecast the interruptions don't appear. On the UI of my router I now discovered that streaming with Poweramp and VLC player lead to different utilization of the wifi channel (see screenshot). The sections -51 to -39, -18 to -15 and -12 to -9 show utilization streaming via chromecast using Poweramp. The sections -36 to -18 and -9 to Jetzt show utilization while streaming via chromecast using VLC player. What is the reason for the different utilization? Could the heavier wifi-utilization while streaming with Poweramp be the reason for the constant interruptions? Thanks in advance for your help.
