    play and pause

    Same problem with the latest build (v2.0.9 build 554) of Poweramp on Sony Xperia Z1, android version 4.4.2, buikd 14.3.A.0.681, Details: when playing a track stop button (or advance buttons) become irresponsive for several seconds or more; the headset button is also irresponsive. This issue does not occur all the time, but after Poweramp has been active for some time. The "tread priority" is reset to "Normal" and "buffer size" to "default" - no change. I (and other users) have reported the same problem half-year ago with my older samsung galaxy (and other hardware). Since I have not got a single response from developers, the only viable option was to downgrade one version back, which I have done today as well, as soon as the problem re-occured, and I saw this topic again. So, for anyone who experience the irresponsive buttons problem: 0. You can fix the problem by downgrading a version back 1. Unless you are using some custom installer, you will have to de-install the current version first, which will cost you all your settings and playlists, unless you back it up manually, and then try to copy back 2. You can download earlier version, v2.0.9-build539, from various sources on the internet, caveat emptor 3. When installing, you must first allow installation from other sources in security settings 4. After you go through all of the above pain, do not forget to disable automated updates of Poweramp in the playstore app - otherwise all your efforts will be in wain ... alternatively, you can wait for another eternity for your problem to be addressed by developers...
  2. Downgrading to the previous release such as Poweramp v2.0.8-build-525 solves the problem
  3. To anyone who has the same problem: 1. You can fix it by downgrading to the previous release, such as Poweramp v2.0.8-build-525 2. The previous release(s) can be found in multiple places on the net, but NOT on this site (very convenient) 3. If your playlists are not exported to M3U format, you will most probably lose them all during down-grading. 4. Do not de-install your unlocker - it will work with either of the Poweramp versions All of the above steps, including the loss of Poweramp internal playlists are tried and verified to work as expected, e.g. producing in the end a stable Poweramp version with normally responsive interface on Samsung Galaxy 5 player. YMMV. Detailed instructions of how to manually install a package are all over the net. All the risks of installing unknown package from unknown place are entirely yours. If you know a way how to hack out an older package from the official site - even better for you.
  4. Hello All, This topic was already reported twice in the forum without a single responce, or, better yet, action from developers. Now, Poweramp is a very powerful playlist management app, and this is the primarily reason I *used* to use it. It could have been much better *if* my request to add two minimal features were not ignored since October 2012, but it is Ok. However, when the *basic* functionality of the player, e.g. an ability to respond to play/pause button is: 1. Broken since August release on several reported device types 2. Reported multiple times both on this forum and otherwise 3. Not even attempted to be addressed by development team ... then this is not really a "misfeature", or "turn-off"... It is basically, "bye-bye, Poweramp", it was good while you lasted, but I cannot wait a bloody minute for a single button to respond to my command "Stop". It's beyond the basic functionality. It is something that gets fixed in the highest priority, not in a "dream world", but in the real life. And if it does not - time to look for another app. Bye-bye, Poweramp.
  5. Hello all, I have the following two (rather simple) requests which will allow me to use Poweramp as full-scale Tango DJ (***) app. 1. When adding a track to an already long 50+ list, it is real pain to first add the track and then slide it all the way up to the beginning of the list. It would've been of immence help to me to have a new button, "add to beggining of playlist" 2. When you are playing your queue through PA, and at the same time adding new songs, it is quite easy to accidentally switch the track by pressing on it.... and your cozy evening suddenly gets ruined. It would've been great if there was a configuration that allows to disable staring new tracks by simple pressing. E.g. an explicit "right menu" -> "Start", would be the only possibility to swich the track. (*** Tango DJ-ing is quite different from traditional Disco in that we do not beat-match or mix tracks, but rather chose on a fly a set of four tracks of the same orquesta based on the whole number of subjective criterias from the library of maybe 500-1000 tracks or more, then go to the next set... and so on... This requires quite an effective playlist management app, which Poweramp definitely is, but without the feature No 2 it is way too dangerous to use in real-life DJ-ing even as a backup to the laptop) Thank you very much, IS
