It seems I am having an issue with BeaTunes. My library and play lists are located on a NAS. When I try to analyse, I get the following error (for all entries in all playlists).

Track 'Plug In Baby' is not a local file, but located at file:// and was therefore skipped.

Is there a way I can go around this? Ive located correctly the library in Beatunes and iTunes works perfectly...

Thanks for your help

    Hi Aldo,

    thanks for your message. beaTunes does not seem to understand the URL handed to it by iTunes, but I think I found a workaround for the issue. Can you please try:

    Does it solve the problem?

    Thanks for the quick feedback... please also check whether the values are actually computed, i.e. not only that the error message is gone ;-)
