The uri would be  Data:content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/folders/1 That means id is required (# == id). To know id you should query Poweramp database, etc. so it won't be easy if you want just to play something with a simple intent. Instead I suggest using android.media.action.MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH with free-form search text: Send Intent [ Action:android.media.action.MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH Cat:None  Mime Type: Data:  Extra: query: YOUR SEARCH STRING
