My audio player (any audio player) on my stock Pixel 3a phone can't all of a sudden not see any of my music.. Am I the only one with this issue?

@hund Have you tried VLC and then manually setting the music directory?

Do you know where your media is on the filesystem? Is there a file called `.nomedia` in the same directory? If so, remove it.

@thelonelyghost Would you look at that.. I know about that feature. I just didn't expect it to magically appear there for me. Thanks!

@hund @thelonelyghost I've the same thing happen to me on Pixel 3a but no .nomedia and the Android file browser doesn't show the media. adb shows it is there. I guess some permissions issue but can't figure out how to get around it.

@hund honestly I don't know. Can you try another player from fdroid? I think Apollo is on there.

Perhaps the device changed file permissions as a fluke? Maybe try and re-copy them to the device.

@antaeus I can't say if that's a good or bad thing. :P
