  1. Hello. I have a Galaxy S5. When I press the export playlist button it says 0 playlists exported. Help!
  2. Please specify the following: Poweramp version and build number (available in Poweramp Settings => About): v3-build-826-play Your device model: LG-H820 Your Android version: 6.0.1 Hello, Today I try to export my Poweramp playlists. When I give the export button, it tells me that the export was successful, but when I see the .m3u8 file, the new songs added do not appear. I even rebooted my phone, but all playlists were deleted (even in folder playlists). I went back to making the playlists and tried again to export them, but it did not work. What I can do? Thank you.
  3. Just bought a new Galaxy S10 before my old, pathetic, S6 dies completely, and used Samsung's so-called "Smart switch" to transfer what it could from the old to the new. While the music files seem to have transferred, the playlists did not. I have scrupulously exported my playlists any time I make a change to any of them, after learning the hard way that playlists are not permanent until exported. The old phone had a Playlists folder with lots of m3u8 files in it, so I naively assumed I could copy that folder to the new phone and that would be that. And, indeed, there are now playlists showing when I select Playlists from the Library main menu, but only if I check the Playlists folder in the Settings->Library->Music Folders->Folders Selection->Internal storage sub-menu; otherwise I get the "Does not look like anything to me" message. The playlists seem to function as expected when asked to play their songs. The problem I experience is that I'm shown ALL the m3u8 files, as "xxx.m3u8", instead of just the name of the playlist itself in a single instance without the suffix. On the old phone, the trick was to NOT check the Settings->...Playlists folder, just the folders, like Music, where songs could be found. Otherwise I would be shown all those m3u8 files. On the new phone, not checking the Playlists folder means no playlists at all. I've tried a variety of import strategies to no avail. What's the trick in the new environment? Poweramp Full Version v3-build-830-play Old: Samsung Galaxy S6, Android 7.0 New: Galaxy S10, Android 9 TIA, Jim
  4. I'm attempting to use Poweramp my car audio player and am trying to simplify/automate as much as possible. I have several m3u playlists which are in my library folder. They scan and show up with Poweramp ok and work fine. I gather you need to reference playlist ids when using the API, which isn't ideal, so I've tried to ascertain these by trial and error. The problem is, sending the same id will start a different playlist on each occasion. So I have no idea what the numbers I'm sending through are actually referencing. content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/[number] cmd:20 I'm replacing number by trial and error integers starting at 1. Can any one shine any light on what I may be doing wrong?
  5. At one time, in an earlier release, you would get a confirmation message when adding files to a playlist. The # of files added or no files added message would appear. I no longer get these confirmations. Is there some setting that permits this again. If so, I haven't been able to find it. The second thing I'd like to see is an UNDO when working with playlists. Sometimes I fat finger when adding folders, artists, genres to existing large playlists and would like to UNDO my mistake without having to select and delete hundreds of entries or deleting the playlist, having to re-create it. . That's after I find my mistake by browsing where there might have been placed which takes considerable time when you have created over 100 of these. Thanks.
  6. 1) This seems like it would be such a fundamental option, that I am guessing that I am missing something in the settings (there are a lot). If I go to an artist, I click on the "three dot" menu icon and what I would intuitively expect is the option to choose (or assign) a genre for the artist. A genre that would then override any inconsistencies down through their catalog of albums and songs (like when a band of one genre is the anomaly on a soundtrack dominated by another genre). 2) while I figure that the above option is just flipping a switch in my settings, this second (and third) part(s) are me wondering how something related to artist genre would work. For an example, if I have all Bob Marley as reggae, what would happen if I imported Marley tracks from sources that have the songs/albums miscategorized as a different genre? Would they automatically be corrected when they are imported during the next rescan? Or would I have to go back and again assign reggae as the genre of Bob Marley? 3) Sticking with Marley, there are many "dub" versions of his songs and dub is a very distinct subgenre in reggae. So I would manually add a secondary (sub) genre, so it would be entered as:"reggae//dub" So let's say that I started with 2 Bob Marley albums and I set Marley's artist genre to reggae and then add dub to ~10% of the song genres on each album. What would happen to those 10% of songs that were reading as "reggae//dub" if a few months later I realized that I had imported Marley tracks from various sources that had incorrect genres assigned, which may (depending on the answer to question 2) require me to run the artist genre again? Would it change all reggae//dub tracks to simply "reggae," or would it recognize that these songs already have the correct genre (just with an additional genre added)? Sorry if this isn't clear, I can explain further, if needed. I have worked most of my life in music, which later evolved into integrity analysis of databases as the industry shifted on line. Poweramp seems like a perfect player for me, but I just need to figure out some of the nuances of it's various functions. Peace, Ras
  7. it would be nice if you added a function to add artists to playlists, that is, when you add an artist to a playlist, you add their songs, but I would like to add the artist. For example, if I want to create a "Best Singers of 2018" playlist, I add the artists, not their songs. I do not know if it's clear what I meant, but it's a function I really want and have never seen in other players
  8. Hi, My phone is Xiaomi Redmi 5A Prime and I have the full version of PA installed, namely 2.010.588 The issues I am facing have to do with playlists. The first one was that, out of the blue, my songs lost all the tag editing data I have added and appeared as 0kb. This was fixed after I did several soft reboots. The second issue is that after the reboots, my playlists remained visible, but empty. In the past I had exported the playlists as a precaution, but in this case I couldn't reimport them successfully. It is clear to me that I can't restore my lost data, but I would like to understand why this happened in order to prevent it to happen again. So would someone explain to me in simple words (I am in my 50s ?) what is this switching from m3u to m3u8 format? And, since I have in store some m3u8 lists, can those be played by Poweramp? Sorry for the long post. Thank you if you read it to the end and thank you in advance for any help offered.
  9. After build 807 auto update most of my playlists songs disappeared.Playlists with 600,700 and 900+ songs now have dozens or less songs now.Tried get help with Poweramp support but they didn't offered any solution and was of no help.Solved the problem myself checking internal memory (no the SD card one) playlists folder box in settings > library > songs folders,then the M3U8 playlists are displayed on the playlists menu.Then I added these playlists (there were 2 of each,the originals and the copies .1) to each of the matching playlists affected.After that,I deleted the M3U8 playlists and exported the remaining playlists (in settings > library settings > import/export playlists).Finally unchecked the playlists box that I checked before in order the M3U8 playlists not be shown Problem solved!
  10. 1. Add Search to Settings 2. Touch playlist name for go to the playlist home (similar to playing song) and do the same for navigation in others items in library 3. Search in playlists too 4. Restore Info/Tags when press a song in a search 5. Automatic list for never palyed songs and by decade (1960, 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, 2010, ...) 6. Ignore special characters in sort
  11. Poweramp version and build number: beta-build-793-play (Full Version) Your device model: LG-H820 Your Android version: 6.0.1 Hello, recently my power amp was updated to this new version "beta-build-793-play (Full Version)" and with it appeared a problem when using the random option. When I use the random option with a very large playlist this option does not seem to work. When using it with all the songs it works fine, but with the playlist it does not. Thanks You.
  12. I created several playlists with different number of tracks, but after a while all the playlists are empty with 0 tracks. This problem existed before and exists now. Im tired of have to add all the files again so i get bored of using this feature that is very usuful.
  13. I loaded all my 6,058 songs and 62 playlists - took a LOT of time but they are all loaded. The problem I have is that I select a playlist, select a song in that playlist and then when the song finishes, the next song is from another playlist and the next one after that is from yet another random playlist. I have it set on shuffle, but why can I not operate and play the songs from the selected playlist only? When I disable shuffle, it still does the thing.
  14. Hello everybody, I encountered a problem with importing playlists on my new phone and perhaps you can help me. Poweramp version and build number: 2.0.10-build-588-play Your device model: LG V30 H930 Your Android version: 8.0 Your Custom ROM: none Yesterday I received my new LG V30 and I directly set it up as my daily driver. Everything worked but 1 thing, which is very important to me: I cant import my Windows Media Player playlists. On my previous phones which were LG G4 and LG V20 (both rooted and bootloader unlocked), It worked perfectly fine via the synchronize feature of the Windows Media Player in Windows 10. Just had to select the playlists and click synchronize. Then the songs and the playlists were added to the phone (SD Card) and I could import the new .pla playlists on Poweramp via "import system playlists" option in the options menue. When I synchronize the playlists on my V30, the opposite happens: All .pla files are removed from the SD Card and thus I cant import anything because nothing is copied on my phone/SD Card. The synchronize function even deletes every playlist, which is already on the SD Card. When I insert the Card in my old phones and synchronize it again works perfectly fine and all the playlists are again stored on the Card and can be read by Poweramp. Thus it seems something with the new unrooted phone and/or Poweramp does not work, I have no clue what it can be. I hope someone can help me because these playlists are one hell of important thing for me to use every day :-( Thanks Frank
  15. Hi, I have many playlists in m3u format, which were appearing in earlier version, but now it's not appearing. I tried clearing cache.
  16. I have added further functionality to New Playlist Manager and It is now possible to apply a rating to a whole playlist in one go. If you for instance have a playlist you really like, simply select the "Rate Playlist" from its context menu in NPM, tap the number of stars you want to give and click OK. That's it.
  17. For many years, Poweramp users have been trying to backup their ratings but this functionality has so far not been developed by the Poweramp team. Over time, I have been adding more and more functionality to New Playlist Manager which integrates with Poweramp. Development of new functionality, focusing on backing up the Poweramp ratings and Times Played, has now completed and the latest release of my app now enables you to: > export and re- import your Poweramp "ratings" and "times played" > update your Poweramp "ratings" from the ID3V2 POPM tag of your music tracks > update the ID3V2 POPM tag of your music tracks using its Poweramp rating > show Poweramp and Android playlists > delete one or more Poweramp playlists > seamlessly launch Poweramp playlists > Export Poweramp playlists to android > Create a comma delimited text file containing your playlist's music details which you can upload to Soundcloud or other sites.
  18. Могу ли я сделать так, что бы: 1) В плейлистах и в списке "все треки" рядом с каждым треком отображалась обложка его альбома (слева) 2) в списке "исполнители" скрывались исполнители, у которых найдено меньше 3х песен на устройстве 3) В "исполнители" отображать у найденныхв Last.fm исполнителей фотографию группы (вместо иконки микрофона) ?
  19. i am using Poweramp v2 build 588. Android ver Nougat 7.0 Stock Samsung rom rooted. I created my playlists in stock samsung music player and i tried to import them to Poweramp but Poweramp says imported playlists = 0 i also cleared Poweramp data and uninstall it but all in vain it still says 0 entries. What could be the problem.? Please Help
  20. I have had this music player for a few years now and granted it is the best music player on the market. For the life of me I can't figure out how to save playlists without exporting them, importing them and creating duplicates. If Poweramp could be a little more clear on how to achieve that, if it is already possible...or make the user interface a little more streamlined?
  21. Saving (exporting) internal playlists is important in case of losing the playlists for different reasons or in order to change the mobile phone and re-install Poweramp using the old playlists. But then the former playlists become file-based playlist, which are not editable! The solution would be to change ("incorporate") the file based playlist into an internal playlist again with all the options for editing them. These new internal playlists can then again be saved for backup reasons and so on. So please make the file-based playlists, once imported, changeable to internal playlists. Thank you in advance.
  22. I'm not sure if this feature/ability already exists, but I would find it very useful to be able to determine which playlists (if any) a certain song is on...or 'belongs to'. Perhaps in the 'Info/Tags' metadata for that particular song? For example, it would be useful if I needed to rename/re-title a song on my laptop, transfer it to my phone, and easily be able to 're-add' it to the same playlists as the previous version. As of now the only way I know how to determine this is to manually scan through each playlist. Thanks
  23. I have just started using PA and would like to know if there is a way to set Repeat and Shuffle options for all my 96 playlists in one go. I have found how to do them individually but a global setting would be great.
  24. I occasionally accidently knock my sim card (right next to the USB port) so that it disconnects, then reconnects ...and then Poweramp re-scans. (The sim contains all songs and playlists.) This has just happened for about the 5th time in the last month. When Poweramp re-scans all 67 of the playlists, they come in empty. I then re-can, And somehow I now have 193 playlists of which about 1/2 are empty duplicates. I can spend 1/2 hour, yet again, deleting all playlists individually and then re-scanning (which sometimes works). There must be an easier way to delete them all. This has gotten very tedious!!
  25. OK, so: anyone had success getting Poweramp to work on a Pixel Phone? I've managed to get everything transferred to it, and it MOSTLY works, but my playlist M3U files are showing as having zero songs listed in them. I've tried rewriting them with different file paths (never needed to before but figured it was worth a shot), and still nothing. I've also spoken to some incredibly unhelpful "support" people at Google, who claim that M3Us won't work on a Pixel phone, at all ... and when I ask if that's actually Pixel or ANY phone on Nougat get an answer that usually sounds like they are saying Pixel. Anyone? Ideas? HELLLLP!
