View Full Version : Flac attack

2004-07-12, 20:13
I put some Flac files on my server and could view them with Browse Folders,
but not play them. The problem was solved with a total rescan of the
database. So I suggest you try the Wipe Cache option and see if that solves

Does the flac file appear at all? If there's no sign of it, then
there's probably an issue with scanning. Can you find it using "Browse
music folder"? If, on the other hand, slimserver is treating it like
one really big song, then the issue is more likely with the cue sheet.
Possibly the "FILE" line is pointing to the wrong place?
I'm not a windows person, so I can't speak to the location of the
..exes, but someone on this list can probably help from that angle.
