"Am I doing it wrong"?

Recommended Posts

Information:

Poweramp Settings>Folders and Library>Advanced - Queue:

Start Playing Queue: After current song

Return To Queue: True

Audo-Advance From Queue: True

Ignore Shuffle: True

On UI:

Shuffle: All

Repeat: Repeat List

So bearing the above in mind I, by default, play all the songs in my music directory. When I fancy a particular song I press the scrub bar (which loads up the song list) and I choose the song I wish to play and, using the down arrow on the right, select "Enqueue". Now as set and I would expect it queue's the song up and plays it. The "Next track" display shows it as "Queue", so I know it's a queue.

Now the problem occurs in that it constantly plays the queued song(s) until I manually tell it go back and play from the main song list (by select a song in that list).

I believe the issue is that I use the "Repeat List" setting as default because I play all the music on my device, but as soon as Poweramp enters a queue it treats it as the list, so it's just looping around. If I set "Repeat" to "Advance List" it goes back to the previous list, but then it stops at the end of the "all music".

If this is so, can I request a new "Repeat" option, one that repeats the "master list" but advances queues.

Just to add to this:

It seems if I queue up one track, it enters the queue, plays the track and exits with the repeat function on. More than one track and it loops the queue.

You're right, this is how it works - the queue loops if repeat all is set no matter what settings you use for the queue.

Advance list is the only way to get the queue to play once and then carry on. Don't know if this is a bug or as designed.

But it only loops if there is more than one track in the queue, which to mean suggests "feature" or bug.

I might post this over in the bug/update section.

Ok I take that back, it's looping with one track now! It's got to be a bug then because it's not consitent.
