BUG: OneDrive music folders not "watched" by Media Library
« on: February 15, 2021, 11:36:55 AM »
Hi, first of all, sorry for my terrible english, I'm from Spain.

Yesterday I installed WACUP for the first time; I usually used "classic" Winamp but I like to try "new" things ;)

I added my OneDrive music folders to the Media Library as I already did on my classic Winamp. But I can see that these folders do not appear in the library window.

If I copy some folder to another local location and then add it to the media library it works perfectly.

I need this functionality... I have all my music collection on OneDrive, I don't want to copy it to local :(

Thank you very much :)

The watch folder handling is done by a Winamp provided plug-in (ml_local) so if it was working beforehand (e.g. with a plain 5.666 install) then there's nothing which has intentionally been done under WACUP that should prevent it from still working.

As such I don't have an obvious workaround as the ml_local replacement plug-in doesn't yet have an equivalent watch folder mode & until that happens trying to debug a plug-in I'm not keeping is a bit pointless, sorry.
