MediaPlayer created a corrupt playlist that loads but cannot be saved again.

Description

MediaPlayer apparently created a corrupt playlist that loads, but with 2 large gaps in it... and it now cannot be saved again. Trying to save it gives an error "No such file or directory".

I had saved a copy of the playlist before rebooting the computer, and when I booted back into Haiku and opened MediaPlayer again, my music resumed playing, but the list showed those gaps in it. Double clicking one of the lines in the gap just causes it to play the song following the gap. This is when I also noticed that I couldn't save a new copy of it.

After taking a few screenshots, I loaded the saved playlist, which showed the same behavior, and I still could not save a copy of it.

Maybe you had your /Music partition unmounted?

comment:2 by jstressman, 7 years ago

No, that partition was mounted when I shutdown and automounted when I rebooted. I haven't unmounted it since first mounting it.

I'm wondering if because the /Music partition is NTFS if it's falling prety to the same odd NTFS problems that are showing up in other ways (missing files/folders, wrong sizes reported, etc). See #4974
