Hello to all
I have been using MP for many years and my system had become +/- unstable, it was time to refresh it.
So I uninstalled MP completely, deleted the directories and reinstalled, I redid my configuration and everything seems to be fine except that I can't listen to music anymore. I get the message "unable to play file" followed by the file name. My music library is on my NAS and I use its IP (fixed) to point to it. My series and movies are also on the NAS and I can use them without any problem so I guess the problem is not with their location or the network.
I can listen to my music using WMP but not via MediaPortal (so no problem with my hardware) and I can't find the solution.
I have reinstalled the LAV filters, tried to use all the player options and I'm starting to go in circles.
Would you have a clue please?
Wishing all of you a good health I thank you for reading me and even more if you answer me ;-)
Sincerely.
Hsenag

Tks for your imput but this is, unfortunately, not the solution all extensions are correctly listed but I still can't listen to music, either FLAC or MP3. In order to double check if all my hardware are correctly installed I add the RadioTime plugin and I can listen to the radio so it's something only in the MP player options. I'm losing my mind here ...

Hello to all,
as requested by doskabouter I created the log and before posting it, I went through and one line caught my attention, apparently my music database had a problem. So I deleted (rename) and recreated the database, as I have a lot of tracks in my collection (+/- 90000 songs) I hate do do this because it's very longer but finally, bingo I can listen to my music again.
Thanks to those who answered me and I note to myself "dont forget the log option" which is a must to find the source of a problem.
Sincerely
Hsenag

The on screen playlist doesn't show the songs advancing through the list. i.e. the currently playing song doesn't match the name of the on screen song.

Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

Hi, I had the same issue, after resume it stops the first time and also lost the current position and restarts from beginning. The curious is, it happens also after switching to a newer hardware (yet a Intel NUC 8i3). Thanks to all here, this issue is also solved for me :):)
