    lms 7.9.0 single flac file + cue: not working

    I have been using SB for many, many years but have never really looked into how it works. I now have a problem that I cannot fix, so I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    I recently installed a new server (openmediavault) and installed logitechmediaserver. I am running:
    Code:
    Logitech Media Server Versie: 7.9.0 - 1488878280 @ Wed Mar 8 14:36:54 UTC 2017
    Hostnaam: XXXXXX
    IP-adres van server: 192.168.XXX.XXX
    HTTP-poortnummer van server: 9000
    Besturingssysteem: Debian - NL - utf8
    Platformarchitectuur: x86_64-linux
    Perl-versie: 5.20.2 - x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi
    Audio::Scan: 0.95
    Databaseversie: DBD::SQLite 1.34_01 (sqlite 3.7.7.1)
    My music is stored in directories, usually 1 CD per directory. I do not use Albums/Artists or any other search methods. I just click on the directory that contains the CD I want to play.

    I can play directories that contain mp3 files or split flac files, but the system will not play when I click on a directory that contains a flac and cue file.

    Code:

    I was running an old (7.7 I think) version on the old server and playing these same files used to work fine. Any suggestions what I am doing wrong?

    It will work trough artist album genre et al. The scanner finds the albums just fine given sane cue files .

    Cue files and muisc folder browsing is broken past 7.7 afaik ?

    I have hundreds of CD's that I ripped years ago that have not been tagged. Using artist, album, etc. is useless for me.
    I like the old-fashioned "which CD will I listen to now?" approach. (my CD's were in alphabetical order haha) It works great if the flac is split, but not when there is a cue file.

    Is this something that is going to be fixed (and if not, why not) or do I have to downgrade to 7.7?

    Hi,

    why don't you simply split the file instead of asking for a fix? It takes only seconds.

    I am well aware of workarounds, but I would rather fix the problem. I am not asking for a new feature. I am asking why something that always worked fine is no longer available. If I am doing something wrong I can change it. If it really is no longer available: why not?

    I have recently done a rip of an old Bulgarian Folk LP as a single flac file. All the songs run into each other, so I'm not sure on their timings. I made a .cue file (manually) with my estimations of the track timings. I placed both the flac, cue and cover art in the same folder. It plays perfectly from LMS (7.9 nightly), and from my Booms, Radios and Touch directly, if I select the .cue file to play. If I select the .flac file then I get an error.
    I have uploaded the .cue file (had to zip it, as .cue files are not valid as an uploadable format).

    What software would you recommend to split a single flac into individual flac track files?

    Edit: I noticed the the post didn't mention Flacon. This is a very nice splitter for Linux: https://flacon.github.io/

    Only seconds? Using what?

    I'm running v. 7.9 and a search will find an individual title in a single .ape file (accompanied by a .cue file) containing an entire album, but it plays the entire album while displaying that single title the whole time. Did earlier versions do better? Foobar2000 can do this with no problem.

    I use FLAC and MP3 with external .cue files a lot - and I do see the title changing.
    However, one thing I have seen is on controllers (JiveLite) the track title is often 1 track behind what is playing.
    I have not checked to see if the web view in LMS shows the same thing.
