Si6776 Posted February 14, 2020 Share Posted February 14, 2020 The Android 10 update seems to have created some playlist issues, not just with Poweramp, which is actually one of the few music apps that still works acceptably, but with other players that use the Android system playlists. It seems that these apps cannot read or import playlists from the Phone storage (Samsung Galaxy S9+), but playlist will work, to a fashion, if moved to the SD card. The problem then is that Poweramp doesn't seem to be able to 'see' or import system library playlists. It does import some playlists, but these come up as empty in Poweramp. This causes issues when trying to sync playlists across more than one music app, as Poweramp won't 'see' playlists created in, say, Player Pro, Jet Audio or the Samsung Music app. Further, it seems that other music apps can't import playlists exported by Poweramp, even if the export location is changed to the SD card. To be frank, the whole thing is a bloody mess, and I still haven't quite worked out what's gone wrong, but perhaps it's something to do with the new Scoped Storage in Android 10? I suppose my basic question is, is there any way for Poweramp to import playlists from an SD card, and if not, can anyone suggest a way around this issue? Also, just another couple of gripes - one is that when an album is changed, renamed or deleted, if this is not done in the Poweramp app, the playlist entries remain, but are 'blank'. This causes some confusion when trying to sync playlists as the number of tracks shown on the Poweramp playlist can contain a number of 'blank' entries, which then have to be searched for, and this is no mean feat in a 3000 track playlist. I have ticked the box in the settings to tell Poweramp not to 'save' deleted Playlist entries, but this doesn't seem to have any effect. Secondly, is there any way to make playlists sort by Artist > Album > Track? The alphabetical sorting of full albums within playlists is a bit of an annoyance, and there seems to be every other sorting option. but the one I want! Many thanks in advance for any help. 🙂 Simon.
