I have all of my players set to stream media over the internet and locally. When I first start up WMP12, and click on my office computer's library, all of my music shows up (I have around 200 gigs of music). I can play one song fine. However, when I click the Artist's tab again to get back to my music, everything has changed to "unknown artist" and I cannot access my music. If I refresh the library, the only music that shows up are my artists that start with a # or the letter a. I have this same problem on my two computers that are locally shared on my network, as well as my laptop which is sharing remotely. Has anyone ever experienced this problem before? If so, is there a work around?
The reason I am using the shared library (under other libraries) instead of using each players internal library of the shared music library is because my Office computer (where all of my music is stored) has been edited to reflect all of the correct information (artist, album, song, genre, etc). I would rather not spend hours on each computers WMP12 editing all of this information to match my office computer's WMP. I have also tried metadatabackup to try and make each player's data the same, but it doesn't work on shared network players unfortunately.
