No Music Found during scan

Unread post by bufordt » 22 Sep 2015, 21:19

I have my Music organized /media/music/{artist}/{album}/{filename}

If I setup a Media folder Name: Music Folder: /media/music it says it scans a single file and none of my music is found.

If I setup a Media folder Name: Music Folder: /media/music/Devo it will scan all the files under Devo and list them, but it will pick the album name as the artist.

What am I doing wrong? I'm on Ubuntu 15.04 and I've tried both Madsonic 5.x and 6.

Evidently if the scanner doesn't find any files in the top level(maybe first 2) of the Media Folder it quits scanning. Putting a single mp3 file at the top level made Madsonic scan the whole thing.

/media/music/{all folders} = No Music Found
/media/music/{blah.mp3}+{all folders} = All Music Found

Hi there,

if your default libary structure is

Code: Select all

/media/music/<artist>/<album>/<filename>
you should only add

Code: Select all

/media/music

as your media folder

Example:
folder.png
best regards

I understand that. See my 2nd post. The problem was that I don't have any files at the artist or album level, and without a file at one of those levels Madsonic quits scanning. adding an mp3 file to the artist level caused Madsonic to scan everything successfully.

normally this should work, but maybe in your case it will help to put in the top level
an empty text file madsonic_dir.tag
