Hello there,

I'm a little new to xbmc, and i like it very much but i got a problem with my music collection.
I'm unable to play my music when opening it from the Music>Files Menu (can't find next item to play!)
I ripped all these CD's with WMP to lossless WMA in the my Music Library.

What do i have to do?

Thanks a lot!

PS: windows 7 home premium 64 bit

I don't think XBMC will play lossless WMA. The problem is that WMA is a closed format and Microsoft have never released the details. If you want to use open source software to play your CDs the best option is to rerip them as FLAC because everything plays FLACs.

Lossless WMA is different than normal WMA.

However, somewhat recently someone was able to reverse engineer Lossless WMA and add it to ffmpeg, so XBMC should gain this ability the next time we bump our internal ffmpeg library (most likely for the v13 release of XBMC).

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc
