Remaining time instead of song duration

Recommended Posts

I would love to see the remaining time in a playing song instead of song duration.  Like bothApple and YouTube do. 

 

I asked about this year's ago when I first switched from Apple and I was told that it was a limitation of Android.. It appears that Player Pro's newest version now had it so it seems it should be doable now.. Great news! 

Hopefully it can be implemented into Poweramp

Not a limitation of Android at all (unless subtraction is now copyright of Apple?) just something that doesn't happen to be implemented at the moment.

I would prefer to see this as well versus static total time. A preference switch between the two in settings for UI maybe?

I would vote for tapping on the existing time-elapsed counter to switch between displaying the elapsed time into the song, and the remaining time.

Great idea, Andre!! Same function (tap-for-more) with the existing meta below the time/duration. 👌

Seems tapping on the total time now has some function, the play buttons disappear, the metadata shrinks and fades, and the current time gets larger. I don't see any other purpose for this, but would prefer to have this switch the total and remaining times.

I wasn't suggesting tapping on the Total time (I can't see any particular reason to change that display) - I was suggesting tapping on the Elapsed time counter, to switch between showing Elapsed or Remaining time.

I just realised what you are describing, that happens when you press-and-hold anywhere that doesn't have a particular function, it's the left-right swipe feature for scrubbing back and forth through a song - try moving your finger left and right at that point.

Confirmed, this is what it currently does.

When long-pressing the current time on the left, the track resets and starts to play from the beginning. I would expect the total time on the right side can be long-pressed to alternate to the display of time remaining (usually in a format like -x:xx). Any simple tap may be changed unintentionally when swiping the track, so a long-press would be preferred. If @maxmp agrees of course.

As I said, it would make much more sense for any time-remaining (-n:nn) display to be shown as a toggleable alternative to the Elapsed time indicator, not instead of the Total time. As to would be a simple two-view toggle, I don't think there's any issue about accidental tapes though, it would very easy to switch back again.
