...or maybe this is not tracker, but I don't see any music in media player anymore. I've tried to clear database, delete tracker configs but nothing helped so far. Any ideas how to troubleshoot?

I'm on the latest SFOS.

is your music on the device or SD card?

This may be a useful starting point to debug: TL;DR: run /usr/libexec/tracker-extract -v 3 and check the output for error messages.

@ElderOrb: Try this:

  1. Connect your XA2 to a computer. Copy all of your mp3 files to the computer (to have them in safe storage).
  2. Delete the mp3 files in XA2.
  3. On XA2, run:

    tracker reset -r

  4. Restart XA2.
  5. Connect XA2 to the computer again.
  6. Copy the mp3 files from computer to XA2 (to /home/nemo/Music unless you have an SD card)
  7. Wait a minute.
  8. Open Media app.
    Is it better now?
