Seems to happen consistently with tracks that have a "?" in the name - for example, "Would You Go All The Way?" on Zappa's Chunga's Revenge, "Why don't we do it in the road?" - Beatles anthology and White album,...

Also seems to be the same problem with track names that include an "É" character - same track skipping behaviour, but Muso fails to import the tracks using "full import from LMS" bit does import the tracks if you use "import from music folders". Example album in this case is Lee Ritenour, World of Brazil.
The plot thickens...

Interestingly, the track skipping problem goes away if you select "Embedded Player" rather than the SBT as the playback device.

The file NAME has a ? in the path? I think that's allowed by Linux, but not by Windows, so Muso on Windows may well have a problem with that.

What version of LMS are you on and what environment is serving LMS (eg. Vortexbox) ?

I can confirm that with my similar issue, and that LMS will play it directly (e.g. from the browser interface), but not when the queuing is from Muso.

If you could both do something for me:
(1) Turn Muso Diagnostics On
(2) Play one of the problem tracks through the LMS web interface (NOT Muso) and let Muso pick it up as Now Playing (assuming it does)
(3) Play the same track through Muso & Confirm it does NOT play
(4) Show me the full path as registered in Muso (eg. on the Edit Track Fields window) - cut & paste that path into the email
(5) Close Muso and send me the diagnostic log.

This should allow me to compare the path that LMS sends through when it's played via LMS with the path that Muso pushes.
Also please let me know what version of LMS you are on and where it is hosted (Linux, VortexBox, etc) - I suspect a new version of LMS may have changed things, as I'm having no problems with mine (7.8.0)

Will do, but my recollection is that Muso does not pick up the "now playing"

Aha, I may have found the cause. Please check your LMS configuration:

host.PNG

In particular look at the host Platform. If your LMS host is Linux-based (as max2play is I think) please set this to Linux, as the file encoding is different. I think yours may be set to Windows - if I set mine wrongly to Windows I get an issue identical to yours.

Spot on! I had changed LMS to the local machine while I was away at Christmas. When I changed it back, I tested that everything was working and it seemed to be. This problem then arose but, because I didn't spot it immediately, I didn't make the connection. Could Muso check the OS or otherwise fail tests if it is wrong?
