Disappointment: after todays update of ADM and an update of the soundsgood app I tried to rescan the music library, but it was no use: stil, less than half of my music files gets scanned. :cry:

Thanks for the tip on the logitech media server. Think I'll go for that instead.....

I appears that the logitech media server has vanished from the download page within ADM? Is the because of the update of ADM?

You can find it in Beta Apps.

Thank you Orion: I have been trying out LMS for a couple of days, and it works like a charm :D

I'm using squeezePlayer and orange Squeeze as a player on my (android) phone and tablets and I've never seen anything better.

Originally I intended to use Plex media player for streaming, bur the android app seems to be poorly put together:

*First of all, the server app on the nas routinely gives out and needs to be rebooted at least once a day.
*Second, playback randomly stops and the server diasappears from the list. I can rarely play an entire album without it happening.
*Thirdly, when in folder view, the android client app truncates the folder names, o it's impossible to see whats in ech folder...?

In short: plex is, unfortunately, crap.

Logitech media server has , as far as I can see, none of these shortcomings, and works perfectly. Problem solved. Me happy! :D

Same problem here.

I had little time to investigate but it seems to me that Soundsgood has some problems with folder/file names containing the

"&" character.

If you own a series 2/3/6 Asustor it's very likely you won't get XBMC 13.x/Kodi.
But easily you'll end buying a kitchen from UK.

It's the "&" character indeed.

To "fix" the unscanned mp3s, until Asustor fixes Soundsgood you can do this:

(with Soundsgood active):

-check the unscanned folder for the "&" char both in folders and files.
-remove it from every instance (put, for example, a 'and' instead).
-move the entire folder *outside* the monitored partition (/Music).
-move again the entire folder *inside* the monitored partition (/Music).
-Give it some minutes and the missing folder should show up.

I have the same problem with my 400GB library. I'm going to give logitech a run.

-----------------EDIT-----------------------

miniDLNA app in beta works great. I would recommend this to anyone having trouble. Give the NAS a quick reboot and you are good to go.

In my case, after the last update, it simply stops again to index the mp3 (the "&" trick doens't work anymore) but, in exchange, it keeps on trying so i have my HDDs in perpetual spinning.....

Now, how much time asustor is aware of the indexing problem?

Ok, found what the latest bug is:

last version of soundgood can't index files nested in more deep levels of folder.

Example:

my collection is organized as:

Code: Select all
Music/
        /Artists/
                   /name of the artist/
                                               /album


If i have files in the 'name of the artist' level it gets indexed. If the file is in the album level it doesn't.
But Soundsgood *tries* to index it (without managing), since the disk are contantly spinning, unless i turn SG off.
