Description Patrick Silva 2020-10-03 11:52:10 UTC
1. download the attached test file
2. play the downloaded file with Elisa
3. click on "Now Playing" in the left side

As we can see in the attached screenshot, "Now Playing" page says "Nothing playing"

Elisa should not say "Nothing playing" during playback

Comment 3 Fabian Baumanis 2020-10-03 17:20:18 UTC
The test file only has a title in the ID3 tags.
The check for the "Nothing played" message doesn't include a check on the title, therefore the message is displayed.

I've created a patch for it and opened a Merge Request: https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/elisa/-/merge_requests/174

Got it, can reproduce now. Updating title.
Comment 8 Patrick Silva 2021-09-19 19:32:19 UTC
New tests done with the attached audio file located in a folder not indexed by Elisa and opened via Dolphin...
While Elisa 21.08.1 plays the attached file without metadata, "Now playing" page only says "No lyrics found". After adding Artist and Album metadata to the same file, "Now playing" page displays the following information together "No lyrics found":

bit rate
sample rate
last played
play count

I think the expected is displaying the information above regardless the file has metadata or not.

Fix metadata not updating when track is opened from Files-browser

This was caused by files being opened as ElisaUtils::FileName TrackType instead of
ElisaUtils::Track, to fix this, we just add that into ModelDataLoader::loadDataByDatabaseIdAndUrl.
