In the music library there is no automatic scanning of newly added sources at all.

Problem: In the music library there is no automatic scanning of newly added sources at all. The user has to manually start it from the context menu (for which he needs to be aware of the fact that there actually is a context menu, which is IMO not obvious if you don't use a mouse and use right-click).

Solution: Add the same logic to prompt the user to scan the added source automatically. A possible problem could be that the scanning is started without giving the user a chance to customize any scraper / scraper settings. Maybe pop up the scraper selection dialog (available in the music library view as a context menu action) after adding the first music source?

from jm:

You've pointed out the main problem, but not defined the reason: The reason is that content is set for artists and albums (can can be re-set per genre or per artist/album). i.e. this has nothing to do with the file source. Thus, setting content can't be done on a path, and often doesn't make sense to be done on a path. Thus, if we want to prompt the user to scan, we have to allow them to configure content at a genre or artist or album level. Personally I'd much prefer that this was done automatically in some way, simply by having an overall preferred scraper for artists and then some fallbacks if no suitable information is found (for some definition of "suitable"). In the meantime, we could simply prompt for the preferred artist + album scraper (and whether or not the info should be scraped at all for this scrape). That would do the trick for most people, and those that want control over it can do it via context later.

Not sure if this should be raised separately, but when adding a path for Music it's still called "Add source", since Videos was changed from "Add source" to "Add videos" should there be "Add music" for consistent language usage.

Also noticed Pictures is the same, "Add source" is still used.
