Failed to initialize metadata file

Failed to initialize metadata file at /home/runner/.replay/PLAYWRIGHT_METADATA_0
Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/home/runner/.replay/PLAYWRIGHT_METADATA_0'

If you’re seeing this error in CI, it’s likely that the replay browser wasn’t installed correctly. The browser should be installed alongside all your other dependencies, but in the case that it’s not, try the following:

  1. Disable caching
  2. Have an explicit step for installing the replay browser - npx @replayio/playwright install
