Re: RMP no longer playing files it used to.

Not sure if  you're still having this problem, but I experienced a similar problem with mp3 files. RMP either wouldn't show all my music folders, or would show them but insisted they were not playable. I used the * key after connecting to the DLNA server to access the RMP settings and changed the display format to "long". Now RMP can see all my music and no longer insists they are unplayable. Hope this helps someone.
