I have a 3TB WD MBL that I am using as a multimedia server since a few weeks to stream flac files. I would say that about 90% of the files appear correctly in the database. My main issue has to do with files that have non-ascii character (e.g. éèà).
For some reason, almost all of the files that have non-ascii character in the filename are not treated well in the database. I tried removing the non-ascii character in the filename and/or in the tag of the flac files but it does not work. It is really puzzling because some of the files are ok but most of them are not and I cannot find any clue as to what explains this. There muste be a reason.
I am wondering if anybody here has a clue. Also, if you have any hint toward taking care of this issue, I would be very glad because it is really a pain.
Also, I may add that all the non-working files are found under the “unknown” artist tag and I can listen to them no problem. It is just that the info about the artist somehow gets lost.
Again, thanks for any pointers.
