Not a replacement for stock music play (not yet)

Whenever I try to sync my music into the library, the program crashes after finding around 300 songs, only 266 songs made it into the library; the folder that the program is looking for music in contains almost 77,000 songs.




Platform: PC

No Search

I realize this is a work in progress, but no Search, not even from the Charms? Really?
