Strawberry is not scanning my collection



  • I have added my music folders to the collection in Strawberry but it's not showing up in the player. I can add the music folders to playlists and that works fine but the collection isn't picking up anything



  • Might be a permission issue, if you are using Linux or macOS run strawberry from the terminal and see if there is any errors shown there.

    This is the terminal output. I don't see any permission issues.



  • Remove the collection directory and readd it, then watch the terminal for errors.



  • @jonas I did that. It's the last 2 entries in the above output. It just saves the settings and doesn't scan my library. No output is printed on the terminal when I select the manual rescan option in the options menu.



  • Then it looks like it stops on a directory level before it parses any files. It will skip any directory that is hidden, or has files named ".nomedia" or ".nomusic". Other than that, it's hard to tell what could be wrong. It's working for everyone else, so it must be something to do with your directory. Try a different directory.



  • Oh jesus hecking christ. It was the .nomedia file. Thanks. It's scanning the folders now.
