Network Files?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

why Poweramp can´t play files from Network based Locations like DropBox Folders or Mediaservers on a Router? When i select files from those Locations Poweramp will not shown in the "Open with..." Dialog, only the Standard Music Player (Samsung GT9001 / SGS Plus)

Thx

Miche

Hello,

I agree with you the NEED to read music from network such as NAS, HDD drive conencted to internet and clouds like dropbox and so on.

I hope this kind of feature will come soon.

Thanks

This used to work just fine, but for some reason they broke the library directory requester. All they really need to do is put the old requester back. Never figure out why why they released the broken one to start with.

After browsing the (currently) 8 pages of the post, I don't see anything related with 'network' in http://forum.powerampapp.com/index.php?/topic/1794-Poweramp-todo-listfeatures-in-progress/

 

 

BTW, the hack of mounting (Cifs) a network location is not good for many reasons. 

Besides, it does not work in most not-english cases. "Cifs Mount" does not like characters with accents. E.g. á é í ó ú, etc. (any accent, from anywhere but USA) .

Any folder or file including any of these characters (including french and other languages characters) will be broken, and Poweramp will not be able to navigate into these folders nor play those files.

 

Poweramp should support network paths natively, without the need of performing unnatural mounts (which btw can also be made on rooted devices).
