Poweramp

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

Sounds like your problem is not in Poweramp but in the synchronise facility you are using in WMP. I have no idea of how that functions though, perhaps a Microsoft support forum might be able to help?

Can i suggest you export your playlists as .m3u rather than the mysterious .pla format. Copy these to your new device and use a text editor to bulk replace the pc path with the path of your device. There are many posts on this very subject on the forum. Alternatively, use my app to import the .m3u playlists. It will recreate a android playlist which you then import into Poweramp. By the way, always export your playlists as .m3u8 as backup.

I just installed your app and exported all old not working playlists from the old phone to .m3u8 through your app.

 

IT WORKS!! I cant thank you enough!!!

 

Do you have patreon or something, your App is worth much more then 1,99
