[faq] Recognized files and formats

Postby hakko » Thu Dec 20, 2012 11:57 am

The following file extensions are recognized as audio files (case does not matter):

  • OGG
  • MP3
  • FLAC
  • MP4
  • M4A
  • M4P
  • WMA
  • WAV
  • RA
  • RM
  • M4B

In addition to this, files must be tagged with at least artist and title to be considered for addition to your library. Files lacking album information get grouped as [Unknown album].

If audio files cannot be parsed during an initial library scan, an error is written to log file (musiccabinet.log). It gets reported as either one of these two messages, with eventual extra available information:
  • Could not read metadata of file XXX in directory YYY
  • Insufficient tags, ignoring file XXX in directory YYY

You can find the location of the log file (musiccabinet.log) from the About view.

Audio files missing mandatory meta-data are also summarized and displayed via Settings -> Media folders.
