Album artwork impacted by .AppleDouble sub folders on NAS
#1
I experienced an issue where Moode would not show any artwork for my albums coming from a NAS folder. Tried a lot mentioned in other threads until I resorted to logging in with SSH on my ReadyNas drive and radically removing all .AppleDouble folders from my music share with 

find ./ -depth -name “.AppleDouble” -exec rm -Rf {} \;

and lo and behold.. now they show up after clearing the thumbnail cache and regenerating it.

Not sure if there are other folks with this problem but at least it added a bit of clarity for me: the .AppleDouble folder contains flac files not really being flac files; throwing exceptions inthe thumb generator (and apparently aborting the remaining parent folder as well; I guess)

Works for me; so kind of solved. It would be nice to have an option to simply ignore .AppleDouble folders while scanning though.

You can create an .mpdignore file in the root of your music share containing a list of names and wildcards that mpd needs to ignore e.g.

Code:
echo .AppleDouble >> /path/to/music/.mpdignore

An empty .mpdignore file causes mpd to ignore everything in the location of the file and under.

Aha! That is very helpful; thanks for that. From this I get that the thmcache.php routines will now not encounter the problematic files (I indeed see the code listing the folders through mpd, so that makes sense yes); which in turn avoids the problem.

Maybe a feature request for the backlog though: for the less technical music lovers amongst us it would be helpful to maybe build this behaviour into thmcache.php somehow?


Anyways, thanks for your help Vinnn!
