Whenever you you move a song from one folder to another in the same device, the song loses its play count and position in most played tracks. The moved audio file is treated as new song. In technical terms, whenever the path of a file is changed, the database entry is NOT updated with new path, instead a new entry is created in database of Poweramp which treats the audio file as new song. It would be awesome if this could be prevented, and the play count is linked to the name of song and artist rather than file path, I know its said easier than done, but it would be cool af. Everyone would be able to reset their phones without losing auto-created playlists in Poweramp (Most played, Recently Add ed, etc etc). Also, if play count is linked to song name & artist name rather than filepath, then you could always replace files with better quality version without losing play counts. Hoping for a response!
Hello, I have a folder hierarchy and want to shuffle through all of it. This works fine by going to the root folder I want to suffle and pressing the shuffle button while there. The problem which I face is that if I stop listening and close Poweramp (swipe it away), the next time I open Poweramp back again it will switch by itself from shuffling all songs and folders to playing the current song's folder only. It is like it forgets the shuffle list and just plays the current folder. To go in more detail, say I have Folder A which contains 3 folders B,C,D which each contain 10 songs = 30 songs total. I navigate to folder A in hierarchy and press the shuffle button. This works as expected and starts playing in random order song 1/30. Let's say I stop on song 4/30 which happens to be in folder C. Later when I reopen Poweramp I can still see for a few seconds the progress being 4/30. However, going to next track will instead switch to song 2/10(!) and only play the songs from folder C. I now have to go back to the initial folder A and hit shuffle again. Am I doing something wrong? All I want is to keep the 4/30 position I left it at and continue from there the next time I start Poweramp. I tried going into List Options and checking List Memory -> List Position but it doesn't seem to help with this specific behavior. Hope my issue makes sense. Regards, Seerix
