Track ReplayGain & Resume On Bluetooth

Recommended Posts

Morning

I have been using Poweramp for years now and I think it is the best app.

However I still have problems with two things; Poweramp picking up track replay gain and also resume on Bluetooth.

1. ReplayGain

I use HTPC/Desktop software called JRiver Media Center for my music collection and all tagging is done using dBPoweramp and Tagscan. When I rip a CD or tag files I always use the FLAC file format and I get jRiver to analyse the audio which writes the replaygain tags however these do not seem to be picked up by Poweramp.

I can only assume that it's something to do with the tag names. I attach an image of the tags that jRiver has added. Which ones should Poweramp be picking up? Do I need to rename/copy some of the tag information to other tags?

2. Resume on Bluetooth

I have found that this has always been hit and miss in my car (a 2011 Ford Focus). It always seems to resume and then pause almost immediately. Sometimes it resumes again as expected but sometimes not. Just wondering if there are some other settings to allow this to just resume the once!

Cheers

M

As a test, could you try re-encoding a few things as MP3s with the same ReplayGain settings? FLAC and ReplayGain haven't always played well together in the past - mostly due to enable/disable not working reliably from memory, but I'd have to find the old thread though.

Hi
I can confirm that the tags do not seem to be read with an Mp3 version of a couple of files either which would suggest it's the tag names?

I think that's it! if the tags are in lower case it appears to work.

Just to confirm I had some that were in Upper case and some in Lower Case (like in the example screenshot).

The Upper case entries are not picked up.

Perhaps @maxmp could make the tag reading code case-insensitive in future then (I actually thought it was already; most other tags are defined as FirstCap, RG is generally lowercase in examples I've seen, but the ReplayGain 'spec' is all shown in caps).

I have this issue sometimes in my 2015 Nissan Pathfinder - factory stereo/Bluetooth, phone is Moto x4 Android 8.1 unlocked. When it happens I normally have to shut off the stereo and turn it back on and then it resumes as it should. Almost seems like it's an issue with not waiting for the Bluetooth to finish re-connecting. Normally when I get in and go for the first time of the day it works fine. Then When I reach my destination and do whatever and get back in the auto to go back home is when it occurs, like if I'm less than 1/2 hour away from the auto.

Yeah I do think it's the car rather than Bluetooth as my Sennheiser M2s work fine. Just wondering if there was anything I could fiddle with.

Currently I can work around it by:

1. "OK Google....play", but Mrs. Google doesn't always listen.
2. The car has some voice activation features too so I press that on the steering wheel and then say "cancel" immediately and then playback usually resumes.

Yes thank you.

dBpoweramp has a feature to add the track gain tag (without altering the audio) and this is all in lower case. Note you have to remove the jRiver (alternative Replaygain tags) first though.

It's jRiver that appears to be the one that tags it in caps:

I've used foobar2000 in the past, and I seem to recall that creates the tag content in all-lowercase too.

Agreed. I am in the process of rescanning with Fubar2000 after removing the caps replaygain vorbis tags with dbPoweramp.

Good choice.
