So I recently noticed a bug where the media player will start listing every single song you have twice following each other. I originally thought that this was just me having multiple copies of the same song in different formats, but I just went trough the local contents of my device and found that this is not the case.

This is what it looks like:

If it's any help the media files in question are on the SD card and the bug showed up in Mouhijoki, or that's at least when I noticed it. It's not what you might call "game breaking", but it's none the less pretty annoying when the media player has essentially turned on repeat without giving you the option to turn it off.

Edit: Rebuilt the media database using the option in the settings as suggested in this thread and that fixed the problem. So bug seems to be that the Media Player/Database can get corrupted, but it's fixable.

Was aksed here already and answered. Unfortunately it happened not only after upgrade, but the solution proposed helped each time.

Settings >> Utilities (the plus in the circle symbol) >> Rebuild media database

(naming might not be accurate since I don't run Sailfish in English)

edit: You have to install Sailfish Utilities from the store first, thanks for the hint @atlochowski
