Shared files invisible to other users
I am on Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). I was so excited to recently find out about SoulseekQt. As you're well aware, I'm sure, a Mac client for Soulseek that's even remotely usable doesn't exist, and running through Parallels uses too many resources.
I'm glad to see what you're doing here and will try to be a good tester by reporting major bugs, only, and not feature requests. :) I'm sure basic functionality and performance has your plate full enough.
Here's a big problem I've encountered ...
I have shared all of my music folders, yet other users are reporting they can't see my music files. They see the folders, subfolders and supplementary files inside (e.g. artwork or leftover desktop.ini files from Windows), but no music. From my windows computer I added myself as a friend (I'm using 2 accounts) and it shows my files = 0.
The diagnostics tab in SoulseekQt shows that all folders have been scanned. For example...
[Sun Sep 4 06:59:39 2011] Adding folder /Users/blaine/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Daniel Wesley as part of sharing /Users/blaine/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media
[Sun Sep 4 06:59:39 2011] Adding folder /Users/blaine/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Daniel Wesley/Sing & Dance as part of sharing /Users/blaine/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media
To test whether the scan was considering music files I added a single MP3 to my shared folder, did a Rescan (0 files removed, but it didn't list the 1 file added), deleted that file from my hard drive, did a Rescan and it showed 1 files removed. So that aspect seems to detect music files specifically.
This is crippling for me, because without sharing I risk being banned by others, and I want to share because that's what Soulseek is all about!
