  1. I love Poweramp, and it's currently my only way of reading music directly from a USB-OTG, but Poweramp can't read the iTunes data (stars, number of plays, etc) that iSyncr creates. The only player that I know of that can do that is Rocket Player. I would love it if Poweramp could read iTunes data created by iSyncr just like Rocket Player. Thank you!
  2. Hello everyone. Today I bought a SanDisk Ultra Dual USB-OTG Drive 3.0 64GB (exFAT), and used iSyncr to sync my iTunes 30GB (more than 6,300 tracks) music library onto it. Next, I plugged it inside my unrooted Nexus 5 with the latest Android updates, and started searching for a music player that could read the playlists from there. The first choice was Rocket Player - which is iSyncr's suggested player. It can read the music ranking (stars) and all other details that I created using iTunes if the files are synced onto the internal hard drive, but of course it can't read from a USB-OTG. I started trying random music players, and they all failed. Even the latest version of Poweramp couldn't do it. After searching the web for people with a similar problem, I found out that the latest alpha build of Poweramp should be able to do it! I installed Poweramp-alpha-build-703-uni.apk 703/704 build, and when I looked into which folders to tell it to read, an option popped up to "grant permission" for Poweramp to read my USB! After a full scan, the music files play perfectly (although I need to rescan the drive everytime I remove and reinsert it)! But for some reason it can't read the playlists. It SEES the playlists, but all of them have tags underneath that says: "not loaded yet". When I open one of them, it's empty - with 0 tracks in it. So I went on and tried to sync a playlist onto my Nexus 5 internal hard drive - and this time Poweramp could read and play the playlists just fine! At first I thought it was related to the .plb file extension that iSyncr uses to update its playlists, but the problem occurs only when Poweramp tries to read the playlists from an OTG-USB. I looked through the .m3u files on my PC using Notepad, and everything looks fine. Winamp plays them from the USB while it's connected to my PC with no problem. tl;dr Poweramp sees playlists created by iSyncr as empty - but only on the USB-OTG. If the playlists are on the Nexus 5 internal hard drive it reads them fine. In the meantime, I play my music based on Genres using that Poweramp alpha version, but of course I want to play my playlists (and hopefully see all other iTunes information that iSyncr creates, like track rankings). Did someone run into such a problem? Do you have any solution or something that I could try and didn't? Thank you. EDIT: OK! I did the following and found a temporary solution: I left all the synced files on the USB, but transferred the .m3u files only onto the internal hard drive of the Nexus 5, to another folder named syncr. I told Poweramp to grab files from both syncr folders, in the USB and on the Nexus 5, and for some reason now it works! It uses the the .m3u files on the internal hard drive to find the music files on the USB, which shouldn't work at all, but for some reason it does. So basically I now do the following everytime I want to sync my iTunes: 1. Sync the USB with iSyncr. 2. Copy the .m3u files from the USB syncr folder onto a hard drive syncr folder on my mobile. 3. Tell Poweramp to scan music in both folders. I still need to rescan the folders every time I insert the USB though. I hope this procedure will get easier in the future.
  3. hi.... i just want to say thanks to the devs here for making such an amazing audio experience i just noticed that stars ratings from id3 tags are not displayed in Poweramp,it is like Poweramp has its own rating data??is there an option for this i missed?i rate my music library in windows and i want to see it in Poweramp and vice versa.
  4. Poweramp has been recommended to me several times with varying degrees of enthuasim. So I had a closer look recently.. and quickly went from being impressed to finding it an enormous disappointment. It's readily apparent that Poweramp is a well designed, even polished music player. Certainly it has a few bugs, omissions & odd design choices, but it is obviously quite a bit better than most music players. It practically oozes decent design and easy (if not quite intuitive) operation. So much so that I was actually looking for the purchase page when I was surprised to find a glaring design fault. And worse, the actual deal breaker to me being that the clamor to fix the issue in questionn has languished, unaddressed for years on the developer's to do list (!). That is incredibly poor support and no amount of good UI design excuses that kind of developer problem. I am referring to how badly Poweramp screws up the use of song ratings. You can't import song (star) ratings from say iTunes. The developer certainly could have made information like that importable. But he didn't bother. Okay, fine. So say we spend dozens, if not hundreds of hours re-rating thousands of tracks. At least we're done then, right? Nope. There is no permanence to the information. It isn't added to tags and the developer doesn't allow us to backup, export or import ratings from Poweramp's proprietary database. If you buy a new phone, you can as you would expect to transfer your paid Poweramp licence to it. But the developer almost gloats at making you manually re-rate thousands of songs yet again. Ditto if you reset your phone, the app crashes, you rename a music folder or any number of other things. Too bad, you just lost four thousand song ratings again. It would be trivial for him to at least codge together a song rating backup utility. Users have been clamoring for this for years. But no. He managed to add it to his todo list several years ago and he has pointedly ignored it ever since. Just another red vs blue argument. A feature pet peeve? Hardly. A lot of people use star ratings rather than playlists (or use both) to manage their music collections. And have spent hundreds, perhaps even thousands of hours massaging song classifications. It hardly matters whether it is 25% or 60% of users that put a high value on song ratings. It is a core feature, essential to large numbers of users that a competent developer wouldn't ignore. And a real mystery why the developer does just that with such a coveted feature when it would be truly trivial for him to provide some import /export functionalty. Ideally as an embedded tag, thereby having permanence and portability. But at least being able to save (backup) song ratings. And since someone will still label this a pet peeve, we might as well add some of those as well. More features that the developer can add to his todo list. And then ignore. Swipe screen to adjust volume? How obvious is that for a music player? Easier volume adjustment as MX player and scores of others already do. Cover flow? Customizable menu lists? Or a whole bunch of other gee wiz, that was obvious features already voiced in these forums and /or languishing for years on the developer's dusty todo lists? As to song ratings, there just isn't a valid excuse that such an obvious and in-demand feature wasn't addressed years ago. The developer ought to be embarassed about it. Really embarassed.
  5. Hello, Poweramp community. I'm new here, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. Thing is: I've been looking the forums since I bought my Poweramp license not long ago (question of months). I've felt in love with the app ever since trial, this is why I bought it in the first place. But what I've found out? The lack of communication between the crew behind the app and the community expectations. I didn't knew about the existence of a "Poweramp 3" until I got here, but it does seem like it won't get out of the paper and it's a long long promise from the staff. I don't see any questions about concerns that showed up (and have been promised to be fixed) four years ago being answered nor solved, and come on, four years is a hell of a lifetime when we are talking about development and technollogy. So, what I want to humbly ask is, as a new member in this community: Why does it feel like the staff doesn't care about the community concern and, why is the staff silent about the community insatisfaction? Of course, if I am right about what I'm saying, I wont have my concerns properly answered, but if I am not, and I do hope that I'm not, I will get my concerns erased and will stay at ease (after a good scold). Cheers, T.
  6. Hello, please enable half-star rating. This would be very useful for me working as a DJ. I listen to so much music out of home which has to be synchronized with my music database, so export of those ratings would be a nice premium feature, too Thanks in advance
