Hi

About to un-install 7.2.1 again, just found out
this version will not play some of my old MP3's

I *think* the problem is related to speciel char's
in the filename and/or tag data (danish letters).

Would you mind posting an example file somewhere, I could test to see if I can reproduce the bug.

Are you on Windows, Linux, Mac? What version? You don't need to give up, just ask for help. :-)

Hi Q

The problem is more complex, I installed SC 7.2.1 on another PC for the first time.

On this new PC I have no problems with the problematic MP3 files. I copied all my MP3's
to the new machine.

Conclusion: on my old normal SC PC there must be some setting (in WinXP-SP3 or SC itself) messing up things.

I think I will un-install SC completely, removing both the \Program Files\SC and \Application Data\SC directories, and try 7.2.1 from scratch so-to-speak

Are you trying to play the songs directly from the Music Folder view or the Album view (or similar), or are you trying to play the songs via playlists?

There is an open bug about files with special characters not playing via playlists, but I think it's common to all platforms, not just Windows.

http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4578

Do the files show up in Squeezecenter Library, but just don't play when you click on them, or do they not scan at all? Anything in the server.log file when you try to play the files (follow the link from Settings/Status page)?

Are you using iTunes or MusicIP integration?

Also, what is the default language is XP set to on the problematic PC?

Installed 7.2.1 on top of 7.2.0 yesterday, and all appeared OK at first sight.

However - now some of my old MP3 will no longer play. No sound - everything else seems OK. That is - they will seem to play - time on controller is moving, but there is no sound at all.

The problem is the same regardless of method - Controller - artist ... play, or SqueezeCenter - Artist ... play.

NOTE: when using Softsqueeze, the music plays OK, so there is nothing wrong with the files.

Is this an issue with the firmware attached to 7.2.1?

Regards
Atle Hgberg

Hi

Still the same problem, the files does not play

The files do not show in the song list of album: song 10 out of 12 is missing


Please note no problem with the files before I have played them 100 times,
and files play without problem in Media Player


Please send e-mail and I will mail MP3

You should file a bug a bugs.slimdevices.com and attach the mp3 files.
