Playlist IDs


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I know there are a few posts about this but I tried it everything and I read and it still doesn't seem to work.

So, I just go a new phone and installed Poweramp and Tasker.

I have an intent configured as follows:

Action: com.maxmpz.audioplayer.API_COMMAND

Cat: None

Data: content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/1

Extras: cmd:20

Target: Service

This works just fine for the first playlist.

However for the second playlist:

Data: content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/2

This does not work, it keeps playing the first playlist.

I only have 2 playlists and I never created/deleted/replaced any other playlist, so theorically the IDs should be 1 and 2. Nonetheless I tried, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 as well... same result.

I know there's an app called New Playlist Manager that supposedly helps finding the IDs, but this app is not finding my m3u8 playlists although I set the permissions correctly.

Any help?

@OliverH all those ids and other internal columns/table relations are useful and make sense only if you're developing plugin of some sort with lot of code.

If you just need to play something via simple intent API, use appropriate INTENT_ACTION_MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH (see https://github.com/maxmpz/powerampapi/blob/master/poweramp_api_lib/src/com/maxmpz/poweramp/player/PowerampAPI.java#L52 for some docs clarifying how to "focus" search on the playlist name). Thanks!

Thank you both for the replies, really appreciated!

So I have this playlist named "Night.m3u8" and I can play it fine using the following intent:

Extra: query: Night
Package: com.maxmpz.audioplayer
Class: com.maxmpz.audioplayer.ListActivity

But I don't want Poweramp to show up, so I'm trying this (like you suggested):

Action: android.provider.MediaStore.INTENT_ACTION_MEDIA_PLAY_FROM_SEARCH
Extra: query: Night
Package: com.maxmpz.audioplayer
Class: com.maxmpz.audioplayer.StartupActivity
Target: Service

It doesn't do anything at all and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here...
