Title: Foobar media library listing broken all of a sudden
Post by: Balduranne on 2021-06-13 17:06:34
Hello,

I use a batch folder for all my music and it worked fine, barring the occasional hiccup. But as of a few weeks ago, I noticed that something broke with Foobar's media library - It no longer registers sub-folders (#1), and worse still, some songs are displayed as individual albums in the list instead of one folder (#2).
There are some other issues where it stopped recognizing some albums in existing playlists.

In the image attached, albums circled in #1 are all inside one folder and previously had a drop-down menu, while entries #2 are one album in one folder.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what happened - I did not update, nor change any settings in the program. I also do not use any plugins and the troubleshooter utility showed no immediate issues. I also tried updating after the fact, but the issue persists. I can't seem to find this issue anywhere.
The only difference was that I purchased more music. Does Foobar have a limit on how many files it can keep track of?

Version - 1.6.6 I'm on Win10 64x, and I did not update my OS, nor did I update any sound related drivers.

maybe try and change the 'view' dropdown menu on the left of your layout (right below your circle #2 in the first attached screenshot) from 'by artist/album' to 'by artist' or 'by album' and see what happens...

Setting it by folder structure is exactly how I wanted it and had it before. I must have been exhausted one evening and changed that without registering. Didn't even notice that was there... D'oh!
Cheers, I'm glad it was that simple.
