When I browse the contents of albums in the default Media player app, song titles of Ogg Vorbis files on my SD card aren’t displayed in the list. Instead the app lists the actual file names without the “.ogg” suffix. The correct titles are stored in the files as standard
TITLE tags but the app ignores them. It does seem to read and understand the
ALBUM tags, because songs are placed under the correct artist and album. Also titles from songs in MP3 format seem to be shown correctly.
Furthermore I notice that the albums of any given artist are listed alphabetically instead of chronologically like they used to be, which indicates that
DATE tags are also being ignored. Or is this by design? I would hope not.
Unfortunately I cannot say exactly which SFOS version introduced the problem, because until recently my Jolla C was still running what I think was 3.2, and all Ogg Vorbis tags worked fine. I upgraded to the latest SFOS over the course of two days, going through each stop release offered to me. I didn’t try the Media app until I was at 4.3.
I’m having other issues with the Media app in 4.3, such as playlists not working and album cover art appearing and disappearing, but this is the one I would like to get fixed first.
- Have some Ogg Vorbis audio files that have at least the comment tags
ALBUMin them. See Ogg Vorbis Documentation for more info.
- My files are stored on an SD card, but files in
/home/nemo/don’t seem to work any better.
- Open the built-in SFOS Media app
- Browse Artists > select an artist > select an album
- Examine the track list of the album
- The song titles should appear exactly as they are given in the
- Instead of actual titles, the track list contains file names (without the “.ogg” suffix). If your files have the track number as a prefix in the file name, like most of mine do, you’ll see the number as if it was part of the title.
(Please ALWAYS attach relevant data such as logs, screenshots, etc…)
- This is my first post here, so please excuse the lack of logs and screenshots. How do I collect them?
- No errors appear in the terminal when starting
- I cleared the media database once using Settings > Utilities and once running
tracker3 reset --filesystem, but the titles still don’t appear.
- I couldn’t find any forum posts about this issue, and I would welcome any suggestions on how to troubleshoot it. Thank you!
