I've had MM for a few years now and love it, though it's taken almost that amount of time to get all my music from various other sources all organized in the MM library. In that process, the library and all the individual music files have been transferred through a few different computers and hard drives. The problem I'm having now is that I'm getting "explicit" songs that have been replaced by "clean" versions. These are songs I directly ripped from CDs years ago, so I know the files were all originally the "explicit" versions. For example Fatboy Slim's "F***ing in Heaven" came on and every "F@#*" was edited out of the song, which in this case, is 25% of the song. I've since heard it on Outkast and Cypress Hill songs too. I have racked my brain and cannot figure out how this would have happened, unless MM edited or replaced the original files somehow. It's a crazy idea that doesn't make any sense and I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else on here or elsewhere, but I can't come up with any other explanation. Does anyone have any ideas how this happened, or even just easy fixes without finding each song and replacing it 1 by 1?
Any idea how it might have happened? Have you heard of anyone having this problem? I suppose it's possible it happened with some other player (itunes, mediaplayer, google play) before I got MM and I am only just noticing, but regardless, it's super weird and annoying.
If you uploaded your music collection to Google Play then later downloaded it that might be where the censored versions came from. Google Play doesn't actually store your file if it thinks it already has a copy of the same song.
Thanks for the responses. I didn't think it was MM, but my library did have some UL/DL back and forth on Google on Play several years back, so maybe that's it. I guess I'll just replace the swears whenever I find them missing.
