Elisa doesn't recognise my music (and neither does Amberol)


Sorry for this noob question, but Elisa doesn’t recognise any music I have. When I type in the path to my music my music file (.webm, .mp3 OR .m4a), it says “file-path” is a file, but a folder was expected. The same happens in Amberol

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It looks like you clicked on the load playlist button. That is searching for a playlist file.

You don’t play music in Elisa by opening a folder. You go into “Configure Elisa” and then add music locations at the bottom. Those locations then get indexed by Baloo and the music shows up in your library.

Thanks, that worked. Any ideas on how to fix this in Amberol?

Never mind, when I select a folder, it now gives me all the songs in it, but when I try adding a specific song from the folder, the song doesn’t show up.

Yeah, it seems to be broken. It may be the way it applies a filter. It looks like a gnome application so it may be a compatibility issue with the kde-portal. That being said, it should work either way.
