I noticed the album art on the widget doesn't update sometimes and will upnp casting be supported at some point? That is the only reason I have a second media player app on my phone to serve that function.

Casting to a media server (A foober media server in particular)

At some point, hopefully yes, more output options are planned. But I doubt it will be imminent as Max is currently working on major updates to the EQ system, so recently issued builds have mainly been maintenance releases / bug fixes rather than adding major new features.

Thank you! Loved the the app when I first discovered it, still love it!

It just occurred to me, I have been using the app thinking I am getting automatic updates from the playstore, only to realise now I actually haven't updated since who knows how long o.o, that probably explains the album art issue.

Current main release on the Play Store is build 822. The latest minor update downloadable from the website here is 884, which you can just install over your Play Store version without breaking any future Play Store automatic updates (if you have them enabled). Or you can subscribe of Google to get beta updates if you wish.

On the beta version I updated to, still got the album art, and song info on the widget not updating automatically as the song changes. Is that normal?

Is the widget you are using a current one, or an old install? This thread might help too:

I tried removing the widget and putting it back from options, issue remains.

With that said I also cleared the cache and not app data before I added the widget again, in fear of all the settings needed to be readjusted

And this is a Poweramp stock widget, yes? Which size, or does it affect all of them?

I didn't know there were other ones available, these are the ones from my home screen listed under the Poweramp ones, it's the 2*2 one, but expanded to fit my upper part of my screen. 

 

I haven't tried the other ones recently, if I remember correctly the more pancake 1*2 kind (Don't remember the actual size) on my LG G6 had an issue as well. My current phone is the s10e.

@Sharif-4 I've tried both the 2x2 and and 4x1 widgets (there is no 1x2 type). They seem to update perfectly even time I change tracks, even if I put several on one homepage. Stock Android 10 on an Galaxy A70, with Nova Launcher. What scenario will cause this error for you?

Stock samsung launcher here, if I change tracks using the widget it works perfectly fine.

Common scenario this issue occurs, song playing in the background, phone is now locked, songs have changed to something else, open up phone, look at homescreen, current song play is different from the one on the widget, tap widget to get into Poweramp, come back to home screen, widget showing correct track now. 

Note, the information on the lockscreen is fine, which is why even though it's been there for over an year, it didn't ever bother me, just made me wonder what's going on in the background for it to not update itself. 

I can provide logs if needed, just tell me where I should send them

 

Edit

I just tried the own scenario I mentioned, put the track at end so it changes by the time I have phone locked, but it updated itself when I unlocked and checked lol 

Not entirely sure how to create it, but that's usually when it happens, but it didn't happen when I try to recreate it.

There are some historical settings in Settings > Misc, and things like Settings > Album Art > Always Send Album Art, but shouldn't normally be needed in this sort of scenario.

That's more for bluetooth car stereos acting up I believe
