Bitrate Conversion

Recommended Posts

As this app can read and utilize multiple media formats why not add an audio conversion tool embedded in the app? That could assist audiophiles in converting their media content to their desired format and bitrate. You could even allow the trial version of the app only to convert to say- .mp3 format maxing out a bitrate of say 96kbps. And even then only 10 files during the trial. The paid version would get access to all formats say to a max of 640 kbps. Please if you consider this feature to be implemented do consider the compact nature of your current release and try to maintain the apps' lightweight functionality. I think, going forward, this feature would open up a whole new class for this app further cementing it as the audio go to for Android.

I wonder if this might be better handled by an external specialised app, rather than adding bloat to Poweramp?

It is handled by several apps... The point was to have Poweramp be the one stop end all. The code's for the encoding of the audio files are already present in Poweramp... Why not allow the user to be able to use said code's rather than outsource to another app. Or if it is making the main app bloated why not have it as an add-on that users can choose to install. In the same fashion as a skin.

The code for compressing and writing to MP3, FLAC, or any of the many other formats is not already included in Poweramp, only to unpack and play. But you never know, Max might think there's merit in the suggestion, no harm in asking anyway.

This can be useful, but only in rare scenarios, as converting on the computer is faster if we're talking about bulk conversion and it's more convenient to edit tags, what can be necessary after it. Plus certain formats and tools for conversions are subject to copyright
