Number of Tracks in Library
Description of Issue
Problem 1: I have an external M3U playlist that has 656 tracks in it amounting to 46 hours of play time. When I put it in a media folder so Roon finds it, it only shows 520 tracks amounting to 37 hours of play time. If I open the playlist in anything else, including MediaMonkey, Music Bee, or VLC, it shows all 656 tracks and the correct play time.
Problem 2: I originally created a separate folder just for playlists. When I put an M3U playlist in there, Roon cannot find it - it never shows up. If I copy it to a folder that contains music files, Roon correctly finds it. Can you not have a folder that contains only playlists?
The first problem is much more pressing. Thanks for any help that anyone can provide. I’m a new Roon user and not that familiar with its internals, quirks, or history. Most appreciated!
