I need help. Running Pi3 with hifiberry digi. Everything works fine EXCEPT about 1/3 of my files won’t play. I can update the mpd from my connected usb hard drive just fine. The music files show as they should, but a good number just won’t play. I can load them in the que, mpd finds and recognizes them. I push play and nothing, no sound. If I push play button again they get removed from the que, but the same thing happens to the next song. No sound. Put another song file in the que and it works perfectly. No reason I can figure why one will work and another won’t. It seems random, and is not related to type of file (I use mostly flac, some wav and a few mp3). I’m very frustrated because when things work they work great, but it just appears random that certain files will play and some won’t. When this happens all the files in a certain directory (I.e. all the songs in a ripped cd) either WILL or WONT play. Can anyone help? When a directory won’t play I’ve tried updating that individual folder OR the whole database, neither actions resolve the problem. It just seems so random!
Hi cyberguy1, Something similar turned up a while ago. Try using MP3TAG (see here: post21296.html?hilit=mp3tag#p21296) to open and save the music files which will not play. It is possible that faults in the metadata are screwing things up. If it works, look on the web for instruction to automate the process for all your files, MP3TAG has a batch processing interface. janui
Hifiberry Digi+ HAT card using spdif out. Vast majority of files are 16/44 flac. Of approximately 2800 albums maybe 1/3 are “discovered” by Rune but won’t play. The rest play fine. They all play fine with other programs, So it seems to me I can rule out metadata as the problem.
