My Question or Issue
So, Win10 has some local music. Need to sync it to ubuntu and ios. On win10 I create playlist and add all neccessary local files. All of them are successfully played on win10. Now syncinng...
Playlist appears, file list present. When clicking on Download it's title switching to Waiting... And nothing happens for a whole day. If I restart app checkbox title swithes to Downloaded. But files still not synced and shows as unavailable.
Playlist present but it's empty
What I have alredy tried is logout on every device and relogin. Each device has enaugh space and connected to same wifi network. But I'm not sure about UPnP, how can I check/debug it? May be some logs or debug mode?
You can’t sync from Win10 to Ubuntu. You need to copy the files over to Ubuntu and add the source there.
To sync to iPhone use Win10. Connect both to same wifi and on iPhone flip the switch to download of the playlist with the local files.
Ok, regarding to Win10 -> iOS - my playlist is empty on iOS.
I have the same problem. My local files on my desktop dosen't show up on my iphone (11) and I've tried all of that already. It worked 1,5 years ago on my iphone 6s though.
It shows empty because you have enabled “hide unplayable songs”. Also I don’t know if this is live or in testing but there’s also local files setting now in iOS app. You also need to switch that on. If everthing is correctly set but the files still don’t sync then there’s something wrong with your wifi configuration.
I am having the same issue. It does not want to sync the files across from my Chromebook (running Linux) and my iPhone. From what I can see there should be nothing preventing it, I have even attempted deleting and reinstalling the app; there are no firewalls, and they are connected to the same network. I'd love to know what's going on.
Hey there folks,
Thank you for your posts in this thread.
Even though some other file types might work, these are the ones that the feature is designed to work with:
Local files can be turned on/off in the Settings menu.
