Adding flac / cue files to the playlist from folder does not work correctly.
When I try to add a flac file that has the songs listed in a cue file from its folder it does add the full flac file ignoring the cue file, or acting strange like calling it song number 2 (but it is still the full flac file). This happens by adding folders from strawberry menu option or dragging a folder to the playlist.
Same behaviour happens with Clementine.
I can't find anything related. Tried to run with --verbose but no information from that.
6.1.29-1-MANJARO (64 bits) / Plasma 5.27.4

@UsuarioDeFresas If you download somethingi with cue-flac, sometimes the 'cue' is for a WAV file which was converted to FLAC for upload.
Try opening the cue file in a text editor.
Here's an example - I grabbed a Discography, nicely organised - except the original 'wav' file was replaced by FLAC.
I never tried editing the 'cue' because I prefer to cut up the file into tracks... so I convert wave to flac
Then I do something like...
cuebreakpoints GreatestHits.wav | shnsplit -o flac GreatestHits(if I remember right).
The other way to do it is to load your cue into DeadBeeF and convert/save the files as FLAC from there.
@ben2talk Thanks for your reply, indeed you are right the .cue file looks to be created for a .wav file, since it contains the "WAVE" tag at the end of the FILE value.
I want to point out for clarity that in Strawberry adding the .cue or the .flac file directly works fine as it is. (The problem happens when adding folders that contain a single flac / cue)
I don't really want to split the .flac in multiple files, still tried DeadBeef, and found our that in DeadBeef player adding the folders works just fine.
I also took a look at .cue format standard, and tried changing WAVE to FLAC, just in case : same outcome.
