I can’t get my Vero4k to recognize music mp4’s. I’m on Kubuntu 20.04, sharing nfs, fstab mount in kodi. When I scan for music no mp4’s gets added, but all mp3’s does. They are all in the same directorys. I’ve tried Local information only, Universal audio scraper and the AudioDB. Using SSH to Vero4k and list the content of the shares I can see the files. And if I add the mp4’s to ‘Videos/files’ section, with content set to ‘None’ then they show up and I am able to play them. But they simply refuse to get picked up by the “music scraper” and/or get added to music library. Anyone that can shed some light on this?
Ehm now I am a bit confused, wouldn’t setting the content to Music Videos add them to ‘Music Videos’ section in kodi? The files are only audio. I have Music Videos as well and they are all added fine. The other methjod you linked I am not familiar with. Will look into that. I simply want my mp3’s and mp4s scanned to the ‘Music’ category
Actually that made more sense. Transcoding/re-encoding was never an option since I already ripped my discs, and/or deleted the source files. But mass renaming the extension to m4a was a good idea. Way less headache playing the files in Linux since mp4s kept wanting to be handled by VLC instead of Elisa. And Kodi handles them well.
