This is fabulous. Thanks for the generous contribution. Going to try it now...
Did you duplicate tracks into multiple folders on your USB stick, e.g. because you put multiple playlists into different folders, and one or more of those playlists duplicate some number of tracks? I suspect so. If you are then playing by the folder tab only, you will only have duplicates if you put duplicates into that specific folder, BUT if you use some of the other tabs in MS Media Player, they only look across all folders and will see the dupes and show them on the non-folder tabs.love the program missed listening to my albums in proper order versus slacker. one issue lot my songs seem duplicated in the tesla but on the usb i see only one song listed.. any thoughts?
I don't seem to be getting my AIFF files converted and copied. Here is a screenshot from the Teslatunes app...I suspect there is a file with no extension, and I overlooked that particular case when I was logging the extensions skipped. I fixed it on my system, and am testing. Will push it if I think it's solved. In the meantime, if it's just a stray file, you can move it, or you can use playlists instead of the folder copy (presuming all the playlists files have extensions). Will try to have a fix out on Wednesday.
Update: I tried to recreate it, but couldn't. I'd thought I'd tested that case before and handled it ok - in some of the sample screenshots that's why it shows the " files skipped: <some number>" in the extensions skipped list, because no extension was getting reported to me as an empty field vs. a non-existent one (which probably sounds odd, but makes a difference to the part that crashed).
Regardless though I don't at the moment see where else it would be, and there's was a potential issue there so I "fixed" it (hard to say fixed though, when you can't see the problem).
I also enabled a log message for skipping a file with an unknown or empty extension. I had it turned off in the interest of not adding too much cruft to logs, and I haven't added an "enable verbose logging" setting or anything yet (probably should). You can see the log messages in the Console app.
Here's the updated app. https://github.com/tattwamasi/TeslaTunes/releases/download/1.2.2/TeslaTunes_1.2.2.zip
I'm really not sure this is the issue for you, so would appreciate you letting me know after you have a chance to try the update. You can PM me, use the issues feature on the project page, or whatever. I did already add an issue for it in the issue tracker: crash when scanning library
This free app isn't (intended to be) a full-blown format converter. From my reading the TeslaTunes ReadMe and GitHub introduction, as well as the example image showing all AIF were skipped, the app appears to be oriented to dealing with FLAC, MP3 and AAC.I don't seem to be getting my AIFF files converted and copied.

Thanks. I'd forgotten that AIFF isn't actually Apple Lossless.This free app isn't (intended to be) a full-blown format converter.

If you need TeslaTunes to provide some of the tagging benefits to circumvent MS (and I assume MX from your sig) Media Player problems, I suggest you:
- Use another utility to first convert your AIF tracks (and any other that were skipped) to a format that TeslaTunes will accept (FLAC would be a good choice for your AIFF tracks), placing those converted files into a temporary directory
- Then point Tesla Tunes at that temporary set of files as input, so it can take care of the very unique title and tagging changes other utilities are not designed for
And as it turns out. AIFF is a compatible formet with the Tesla audio system. Fortunately I didn't spend the time converting all my AIFF to FLAC. At least I'll have a little more room on my USB for future purchases!Thanks. I'd forgotten that AIFF isn't actually Apple Lossless.
What we really need is the Tesla media player to support m3u playlists (like 99.99% of all the cars and media players) and all of this will be just a distant memory! Or, add Apple Carplay support (sorry Android user) and we'll have even more...
My two cents!
