So I've installed Clementine and it seems to be skipping songs with an error message "Failed to parse stream". I've tried Amarok, but it does the same.

No idea what to do here. Any help would be appreciated.

I found out on google the solution. In my case, the name of folders have brackets characteres. I remove this characters and solve my problem. I don't know if is your case.
