Can MC be setup to "auto-scan" movie folders? I've been using media center master and it has a functionality whereby it monitors the movie folders and auto-scrapes when you add a new file or folder. Pretty slick, but the scraping leaves a bit to be desired. MC seems to have phenomenal scraping capability and flexibility but I just can't seem to see if there is a way to auto-scrape.
We are busy trying to fix a few pressing issues at the moment, but once that is done, I am sure there would be some scope for some new features, and I think there is some potential for more automation!
I suggest you add a feature (um, issue; a dev has to change it to a feature) at the Media Companion site on CodePlex so we can keep track when it comes time to work on features!
i made a batch file that runs every 2 hours that update the software and then connections to my xbmc and initiate a library update.
call /usr/bin/xbmc-send -a "UpdateLibrary(video)"
call /usr/bin/xbmc-send -a "UpdateLibrary(music)"
hope this helps
This seems interestings, and could possibly be an addition to MC with an option in the gui (with relevant settings, ie: logon & password etc).
I think it could also be done with TST10, instead of an install of WinSCP. TST10 could be included with MC for flagging XBMC to do an update.
Possibly an extra button so once a user is happy after checking their newly scraped Episodes and/or Movies, click the button sends command to XBMC to run an update. Even add to mc_com the options -eu and -mu for episode scrape and update xbmc or movie scrape and update xbmc.
Will add this to Codeplex site as a possible feature.
