    So I use Blackplayer, VLC, AmazonMusic, and iHeartRadio. Usually when something is playing, at least on Nougat on KeyOne, I would get the media player buttons in my notification area for pause/start, next, back. Now all I get is this is running in the background for anything streaming. Anybody know a workaround?

    You shouldn't need a workaround. It shouldn't really be different. Do you have Power Center optimizing apps or anything like that?

    I haven't been in the power center at all, will have to go look in there when I get out of work.

    it's the same thing with poweramp. I can play the 1st song but once I hit the 1st button, the buttons disappear and the notification is worthless. I didn't read the reddit too deeply but skimming it I get the sense it is something players had to update for Oreo.

    For now I disabled my notifications for poweramp until I can find out more.

    for poweramp, you have to get the beta build and then it updates your media controls in the notification shade

    Ok people I figured it out. You can't turn off notifications completely like in Nougat. You have the basic setting on to get the media player to show in the notification section again.

    Yeah my settings are the same. Always have been. Still the same - 1st song fine, next song no more buttons.
