View Full Version : Slimserver missing songs and erratic behaviour

Just to finish off the thread incase it's useful for anyone in the future.

I found that it was my.cue files that were causing the problem. I have now
renamed all these files to .cue_ and Slimserver now indexes all my files
correctly.

Two things though:
All my album directories also contain an m3u playlist that indexes the whole
album. The m3u file does not seem to interfere with the way Slimserver
indexes the files
I have only tested this with flac files. I don't know if the same applies to
mp3 files.

We've fixed a problem in parsing playlists that could cause song counts
to be wrong. Try updating to the latest nightly and let us know if it
resolves your issues:
