Playlist can not be deleted - Where are Playlists stored?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am on 2.0.10 build 588-play Full Version. and on 3.0 beta!

I accidently created a playlist of nearly 100.000 titles. I can not delete this list. When I push the "x" button PA waits a few seconds and goes then to the main screen. The Playlist is still there. No big deal, but still a bug.

I could help myself if someone would tell me where and in what format PA stores playlists. Seems to be a mystery. I created a playlist and then looked for the name in my explorer, without success. My device is rooted.

If you long-press on the playlist title, you should see several options, one of which is Delete. There will be a confirmation prompt and then you should be able to delete it. Internally-created playlists are stored in Poweramp's database so it's not easy to manually work on a single one at a file level (although TheoKlink's New Playlist Manager app from the Play Store might help?)

Thanks Andre,

I know how to delete a playlist and normally it works like you described. I just tried out again in 3.0.

The bug is that a very big playlist - say 100000 titles - can not be deleted. Seems to be a database problem.

You can create such a super big playlist by adding all titles several times to the same playlist. I have about 50000 titles and added them by mistake 2 times to the same playlist.

Please try out and report the bug to Big Max.

Thanks again

Wolfgang

Can you select all the items in the list and remove them, then try deleting the empty list? (view the contents of list, press Menu > Delete, then use 'Select All' and tap Delete)
