After the early access update it seems that the indexing of flac music files is broken: *.flac audio files are shown in the video-player in the gallery, and they also show up as unknown artist-unknown album in the media application.

The exact same files were indexed correctly (artist/album etc) in previous updates. Restarting the tracker by removing the tracker database using the utilities tab in settings did not resolve this issue. Neither did a reboot.

Mine are still ok... Weird behavior, hope I never have to see it. :) Did you do anything special for it to happen? (add files?)

Have added a new flac album to my music folder and only one file is indexed. For certain something in not working as before update.

The flac Codec support was updated. I suspect it most probably has something todo with it

Maybe you have to many music files on your device and experiencing this issue like me: https://together.jolla.com/question/113064/bug-media-doesnt-find-all-music-files-correctly/

You could also try to rebuild the database via terminal because the utils-version does not solve such an issue for me either.

It is clear that this bug haven't been fix ! It makes a long time that I didn't add some song on my phone. The previous flac was correctly indexing, but for the new one it is not the case any more. Adding other player as QuasarMX doesn't change anything. It start to be really boring that Jolla/Sailfish programmer doesn't so much about the music player. After more than three year we still haven't the flac folder support on the native app !!
