I'm having some problems getting Boxee to play music. It says it is scanning the files, but it never seems to identify any. At first, I thought maybe this was because I had so many music files that it took a very long time to find them all.
I tried reducing the number of files to 20. Nope, that didn't do it either.
I then thought maybe it was the tags in the files (they're all mp3s). I tried using a program called "tunedit" under Windows to fix the tags, then moved them to the Linux machine hosting Boxee. That hasn't fixed it either.
The music files are in a local Linux file in my home area called "Music." I've gone into the local sources window, and told Boxee that this is where the music files are, and that I'd like them scanned. Boxee says it is scanning the files, but nothing seems to come out the other side: when I look to see what music files are available, it says it is still scanning, and there aren't any.
Since I don't see anyone else with a similar problem, I suspect I'm doing something wrong, or expecting something that does not exist. Does anyone have any ideas?
