Store/restore per track progress problem


Recommended Posts

Accidentally switched on this option.

Tracks started playing from the middle, turned it off and they continue playing from the middle.

Tried restarting app, phone, it doesn't help.

App v3 build 884.

Android 10, OnePlus 5t phone.

Please help ūüôŹ

Used following work around:

1. Rename your music folder.

2. Rescan music folders in Poweramp

3. Never use this option.

There are two options to control this, one is global (and duration based) and one is for all songs in a given category.

The global setting is duration based, and can be found in Settings > Library > 'Store/Restore Per Track Progress'. This turns the feature on or off, and you can also adjust the song duration needed for the feature to kick in with 'Track Duration for Per Track Progress'. 

You can also enable this for all songs in certain listening categories - e.g. Folders or Playlists - by tapping the three-dots menu icon in the songs list, select List Options, and tick 'Per Track Progress'. The feature will then be enabled for that specific folder.

You cannot switch off the internal function to store last played positions in the database, but you can definitely turn off the restore feature so any internally saved data is irrelevant to you.
 

For the global (duration based) setting, turn off 'Store/Restore Per Track Progress' in Settings > Library:

For Folders/Playlists, use the three-dots menu at the top of any given song list, select List Options, and untick Per Track Progress. This restore function is used for all songs within an individual folder or a specific playlist, so it needs to be enabled/disabled for each one, it's not a global setting:

Andre, I did exactly as you described and it somehow didn't work first time.

I tried to reproduce the problem but it didn't repeat. Maybe because I restored all settings to default or maybe because I'm an idiot.

Sorry for wasting your time ūüėĒ

By the way @maxmp , there's a minor issue in that if you delete all of the contents of a folder before adding any new stuff back in, the folder's Per Track Progress setting is reset when it becomes temporarily empty.

For example, I have a folder that contains a weekly downloaded podcast, and as the shows can be up to 2 hours long I have the Per Track Progress mode enabled for that location. I delete each old podcast after listening, and usually there's a week or two backlog in the folder. However sometimes I may end up listening to the last one and delete it before next week's show gets downloaded, which leaves the folder temporarily empty and the folder settings are cleared. Is there any way that folder List Options could be retained as long as the physical folder still exists, even if it is temporarily empty? Thanks.

It's probably not a common issue, but I guess other people might have similarly transient folders such as a Download location, radio shows, etc.

I found the issue by accident, when a podcast I had been listening to earlier unexpectedly did not return to the same location, and I had to navigate my way to about an hour in while driving.

Poweramp doesn’t keep empty folders (or other categories) in the DB, that means the folder attributes are lost:-(

On a related note, I tried leaving a folder.jpg cover image in an otherwise empty folder but even though the FAQ says the folder should still be displayed, the folder name does not show up in either the Folders or Folders Hierarchy lists.

Poweramp v3: for Folders Hierarchy:
- even if the folder has no songs, in-folder image is checked and shown

I still don't quite understand that.

In Folders Hierarchy mode, any folder that contains subfolders but no other music has to be shown anyway - whether or not it also contains a folder.jpg image - as you can't drill down to its subfolders any other way.

But in plain flattened Folders mode, a folder name that contains only subfolders (no music) never gets shown by name at all, regardless of whether there's a folder.jpg image within it.
