melaw Posted August 2, 2019 Share Posted August 2, 2019 Hi! I recently found Poweramp because it's the only music player which has the features I need. Namely OTG support, folder navigation and a queue. I use a 128GB USB OTG stick for my music. I bought the full version right away. Now the in-app browser is really not good, sorry to put it that way. It requires that every folder you look at is part of the library, and will not allow you to browse until every file was scanned. Even if all the music is part of the library, there is no button to go up in the folder tree (cd..). Instead I have to "select folder" and select the whole storage again, which somehow triggers the FULL rescan of 100GB of music and I sit there for like half an hour. Example: on my storage there is "music" and "new music". If I want to browse the first one, I select it, and it shows after scanning. Then I want to browse the other one, I select it, Poweramp forgets what was in the first folder. So when I go back it need to do aaaaaaaaall the rescanning for 20 minutes. Horrible. Just compare it with Foobar2000. You can casually browse the storage folders and go up and down the folder tree without any delay. Sadly, Foobar is not a good player in general. 1. There needs to be a button 'cancel scan' 2. Poweramp needs to stop with the rescanning everytime I select another folder / folder combination 3. selecting the full sdcard as folder will bug out the display, it will not show the contents. I need to check all folders within the sdcard instead. 4. the folder browser must be separate from the library. Right now it's connected - folder selection for library and folders to browse is the same selection. Can the devs please look into that? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
