Poweramp volume restart in pause Chromecast

Hi @maxmp. I am streaming audio from Poweramp build 934-939 via Chromecast. the problem is that when reducing the volume and then pausing and play again, the volume automatically returns to 100%. also when making any modification in the settings and when Poweramp applies these changes, the audio stops and when starting again, the volume is automatically increased to 100%. Does anyone know if I need to make any changes to the configuration? I have tried turning the DVC control on and off but to no avail. Thanks

This is driving me nuts!  I was about to create a new post about it myself.  It makes me avoid using Chromecast.

(And it's been happening for a long time - first noticed at least a year ago I think, but I didn't know if it was a Poweramp issue.  But I have since tested with other Android apps (such as YouTube and Netflix), and those do not have the problem.)

In my case the volume does not go to 100%.  In my latest test it reverts to 21% each time I unpause, but in the past I think I've seen other volume levels.  It does not seem to correlate to the volume that was set prior to connecting to the Chromecast.

Aha!  This problem is resolved by choosing the "System Default" option under Settings > Audio > Advanced Tweaks > Volume Levels.  Mine had been set to 30.

Thanks very much to Geiler Heinz in this post:



I think this must be a bug (and if it can't be fixed, please add a comment on the Volume Levels screen explaining that choosing a value other than System Default will cause the Chromecast problem).  I liked the higher granularity.  (Although while the System Default setting is normally 16 volume increments, I get about 49 increments (each increment is 2 or 3%) when I'm using Chromecast.  Which is great, but I'd like to still have the higher granularity when not using Chromecast.)
