Playlist is Empty - Repair or Recover?

Postby WorkInProgress » Fri May 01, 2020 7:57 pm

Everything seems to be working fine, except "Playlist is empty" for all playlists :cry: despite # of songs and length showing correctly. :?:
Troubleshooting Steps: No recent changes to files or system. Made sure running current version of Subsonic, scanned media folders:

Any help is greatly appreciated. I would really love to have playlists back, but I'd be happy with even some way to see the song lists so that I could manually re-create.
Thanks very much for your help! :D

Edit: Since submission of this post, I have updated Java, tried using different Browser (Chrome) and stopped/re-started service via Subsonic Control Panel. Playlists still "empty".

I have a huge database and I'm working every day on it. Sometimes it happens that I have renamed the Files to this style 01. Title - Artist but normal there is an not found at subsonic

Hi 3Dscrewer - Thank you - I had not tried that.
I just exported a playlist and opened the new .m3u8 file using Notepad and it only contained this:
Code: Select all
#EXTM3U

I was so hoping you had given me a way to see the songlist... :?
Any other thoughts or suggestions are welcome!!!

I'm really sorry, but it seems that your playlists are lost. I don't see a solution to recover the playlists because they are empty.
Since you are talking about Notepad, I guess you are using Windows. There is in the subsonic folder a folder called db.backup, so you can try to rename the original db folder create a new one and copy the backup files to the new db folder, but first stop the subsonic service and after copy start again. If that doesn't help .... I don't know
