Listing Poweramp playlists by name


Recommended Posts



I'm trying to make an app that would need to list Poweramp's playlists along with their names.

Querying the content provider for content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists returns me this:

D/Poweramp(10779): Listing playlistsD/Poweramp(10779): _idD/Poweramp(10779): 14D/Poweramp(10779): 12D/Poweramp(10779): 4D/Poweramp(10779): 2D/Poweramp(10779): 1D/Poweramp(10779): 3D/Poweramp(10779): 7D/Poweramp(10779): 8D/Poweramp(10779): 5D/Poweramp(10779): 9D/Poweramp(10779): 11D/Poweramp(10779): 13D/Poweramp(10779): 10D/Poweramp(10779): 6

Which are IDs, my question is, how do I query for the name? The database has that in the table "folder_playlists" under column "name".

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown URI content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/11

 public  Cursor getpampPlaylistcursor(Context context,Cursor cursor)


//              From Poweramp v2.1, playlists will be an isolated de-normalized table, which will contain track

//              data - i.e. path, track title/artist/album/duration


//              content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists - all playlists

//              content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/ID - playlist by ID

//              content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists/ID/files - tracks in playlist ID


           String[] proj = { "_id", "name"};

            final     Uri playlistUri = Uri.parse("content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/playlists");

            Cursor playlistCursor = getContentResolver().query(playlistUri, proj, null, null, null);

     return playlistCursor;




This is as far as I got as Poweramp does not provide anything else to allow you to write/amend playlists.


Check out my threads on this forum as this has a lot more:

Although it is not possible to update the Poweramp playlist, I did manage to interrogate the database and return values

In its simplest form:

final String pamptrack_id = "folder_files._id";

final String pamptrack_no = "folder_files.track_number";

final String pamptrack_name = "folder_files.name";

final String pampartist = "artists.artist";

final String pampduration = "folder_files.duration";

final String pampalbum = "albums.album";

final String pampyear = "folder_files.year";

final String pamppath = "folders.path";

final String pamprating = "folder_files.rating";

final String pamptimes_played = "folder_files.played_times";

final String pamplast_played = "folder_files.played_at";

final Uri uri = Uri.parse("content://com.maxmpz.audioplayer.data/files");



public Cursor getpampTrackTrackcursor(Context context, Cursor cursor)


// gets all tracks

ContentResolver cr = context.getContentResolver();

String[] proj ={ pamptrack_id, pamprating,pamptimes_played, pamplast_played };

cursor = cr.query(uri,proj,null,null,null);

return cursor;





to see this is action
