music folder - by interpret/by album not showing anything

konstantin p 1 year ago updated by Vlad R 7 months ago 3

I've been trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong but so far the music section only show tracks in the 'random' section and it's general tracks section. going into the folder that would show the interpret or the album doesnt seem to work..

I've set up all the indexing (elasticsearch/apache tika) and ran the metadata_index.php and the reindex_files.php on my music folders but I don't seem to get it to work for albums or Artists, do I have to manually add this metadata information?

When looking into the Metadata -> file types option I can see that filerun has all my mp3s registered and I've check with mp3tag if all the tags are correct which they are..

I've been enjoying your product a lot so far, and this is the only thing I couldn't get to work, could you please help out?

As FileRun superuser, you can also index files metadata for an entire directory tree, whenever you wish, from the folder's "control panel" (under "More options", after right--click.)

Alternatively, you can do it from the command line, or a cron job: https://docs.filerun.com/command_line_tools

Under review

If you upload a new mp3 file to FileRun, do you see any metadata for that file in the details tab?

Okay I've found the issue, if I already have the music on the drive filerun is not automatically getting all the metadata, uploading the music through the webinterface makes it get all the metadata!
