Amarok 2.4 doesn’t import all MP3s into collection

If you have updated to Amarok 2.4 you may have noticed that some of your MP3 files are missing in Amarok’s collection. This happens because Amarok seems to be unable to handle MP3s that have an UFID tag. A workaround is to remove the UFID tag. This is done by simply submitting the following command:

find -name "*.mp3" -exec id3v2 -r UFID ‚{}‘ \;

After that be sure to do a „Full rescan“ of your collection. Just „Update Collection“ didn’t work for me. Now you should have all your MP3s back in your collection.

Thanks to the KDE community for this solution:
