Ability to see unscraped items in Video Library
#1
I've searched and searched the forum for this, and can't find a prior request for this functionality. At the back of my mind however, I'm sure that I recall reading about this recently. Feel free to let rip with your collective scorn if I am indeed a time-waster on this occasion!

My wife and young child are oblivious to the difference between File and Library mode, and they enjoy the convenience of running in library mode at all times. If however I add some new content to my NAS, it wont show up in the Library if it's not already been added to TVDB or TMDB. From their perspective, the newly added content simply isn't available unless I'm on hand to 'magic it up' by jumping into File mode.

Even when I add the entry to TMDB or TVDB myself, it takes a while before the respective APIs will provide the necessary data. TMDB for instance can take up-to four days before the data filters down to the API.

Having said all that, I'm keen to understand if there's any demand (myself excluded) for an ability to view videos that failed to scrape successfully whilst in Library mode. Simply showing them under the Title or Flattened view by their filename would suffice. Appending something like "(unmatched)" to the end of the filename may help even further, as it would allow us to identify and resolve failed-scrapes without needing to trawl through the Debug Log.

Interested in others thoughts, so I can raise a formal Feature Request on Trac (a patch would be well beyond my abilities I'm afraid) or crawl back under my rock if it's already been discussed or is not considered desirable by the wider community.

Thanks for reading this far!

Fergus.
