Auto Scan All Media
« on: September 02, 2007, 11:58:02 pm »
Does this feature work?

It says that it starts the daemon.... but then nothing happens... so i have no idea.

I tried to search the forums, but I do not see a whole lot about it.

Also does linuxmce store the images in a sql db or just an image stored within the file system?

I also tried this function and because I have a lot of files I let it work through the night. In the morning the sarching was still going on. I did the coverart of the files manually and finnished it in less then 3 hours. So I guess it doesn't work very well

The autoscan does work, but it's really slow... intentionally. If it was done fast it would eat up your CPU and network resources and can cause problems with the normal operation of using LinuxMCE (like playing video, for example). When I add large amounts of media, I just do a manual scan; it's fast and easy.

Dopey - how do you trigger a manual scan?

Select Files & Media->Media Files Sync from the Admin website menu. Then select the folder you wish to sync on the left pane and click resynchronize on the right pane.

the update media function has some issues when you try and run it manually. There was another thread on this already.

I generally have to manually add media. other methods seem to be a waste of time. unless you have nothing but time.
Those people who tell you not to take chances, they are all missing what life's all about.
