Recently I noticed that updating video library takes longer than before
so when I checked kodi log I noticed that it detects changes to my folders

Code:
13:45:27 T:140623839475456   DEBUG: VideoInfoScanner: Rescanning dir 'smb://PAYAM-UBUNTU/tvseries1/Humans/Season 1/' due to change (AEA5E0ABD251890238916D613F63D94A != 5C3CE9B0F4C7D3C0F21CDA2555170EE7)

and this happens every now and then without any reason that I know of.
some times it doesnt detect changes for days, and some times it detect changes after 1 hour of library update

I have kodi 15.1 with mysql on my ubuntu 14.04 and update the library only from ubuntu, other devices are kodi 15.1 too but only read and never update library.
so I checked folder contents, they are all intact and time stamps shows nothing chnaged but kodi keep detecting changes


any help Huh
any help ?
Read 233369 (thread) and try again
Sorry, never thought full log is required for my problem, will send as soon as it happens again.
Thnx anyway.
A full, complete, unedited, unadulterated and in a pastebin Debug Log is required for any problem. (except for passwords etc)

Its not up to who asks for help to decide what information the helper needs to see or not see in order to provide better assistance. Big Grin Within reason.

In the meanwhile you may want to add a little line to your advancedsettings.xml and see how that goes.
Code:
<advancedsettings>
<videolibrary>
    <usefasthash>true</usefasthash> <!-- defaults to true. Set to false in order to skip hashing based on the folders modification time. -->
  </videolibrary>
</advancedsettings>
Here is a fresh log of my latest video update.
kodi.log ( it was too big to use pastebin)

here is ls-la of one of the tv shows that it detected as changed

ls -la /media/media5/HDTV/Band\ of\ Brothers/

sorry saw your reply after posted the debug log,
since usefasthash default is true is it needed to add it and take a debug log again ?
Code:
<advancedsettings>
<videolibrary>
    <usefasthash>false</usefasthash> <!-- defaults to true. Set to false in order to skip hashing based on the folders modification time. -->
  </videolibrary>
</advancedsettings>

and the reproduce with debug log like so , enable debugging in Kodi, restart kodi, duplicate issue and pastebin the resulting log. Should be fine for pastebin like so.
Same problem
log with use fast hash set to false :
kodi.log
Well dont use path substitution for thumbnails is one issue, doesnt work properly and is not supported properly. See BIG warning at page Path_substitution (wiki)

Rest no idea.will see log after that.
removed thumbnail path substitutions from all kodis in the house and its still happening.
log
sounds crazy, but turned off my ATV2 kodi and it hasnt happened since.
will test more and post if the problem occurs again.
Doesnt sound crazy at all... You probably had two machines on the network triggering library updates at same time or fairly close to each other, hence hashes were changing and you experience that, would be my guess.
In my opinion only one box in network should act as master for triggering library updates so that the databases and content are managed in a more sane manner. But never used mysql with Kodi so wouldn't know whats best or whats ideal.

In any case dont path substitute thumbnails, bad idea with current state of affairs.
