abenson Posted July 27, 2015 Share Posted July 27, 2015 I'm presently using Poweramp build 581 on an LG G4, but I had the exact same problem on my previous phone, a Samsung S4, and have had the same issue with all builds of the program that I've used.I'm a bit of a nitpicker when it comes to artists and albums all being tagged properly and organized nicely, and I've noticed that there are a few albums that Poweramp consistently refuses to recognize the ID3 tags for, and dumps them all into "Unknown album" by "Unknown artist". I know for an absolute fact that these files are properly tagged, because I've manually entered them on PC, and if I plug my phone into a PC and look at the files on the phone all the tags are present and correct, but on Poweramp all the tags show up blank. The stock music player on my new phone properly reads all the artists and albums, so I tried out a few other android music players, and all of them also have no problem reading all the tags, but none of them are as good as Poweramp otherwise. I know I can manually enter tags in Poweramp, but that's massive pain, especially when I've already entered the tags on PC, and no other program has trouble reading them.What up with that?If it matters, one album in particular that Poweramp steadfastly refuses to recognize is Prologue by The Milk Carton Kids, and it also doesn't want to read the tags on a great deal of music by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, can't recall which albums in particular.
