Req Scrape All button

Whereas it never bothered my that I have to move my mouse to Scan -> All -> All Items but this discussion brings me to something I really miss in Ember: True Multi-Library, especially now with the native Kodi interface.

E.g. check out Calibre, an excellent OS ebook management tool: I can create multiple libraries, switch between them and copy / move content from one lib to another.

So for me the perfect workflow for new movies would be:
  1. In Ember switch to library "To be scanned"
  2. Scan with Ember
  3. Do Bulk Rename
  4. Tell Ember to move these movies to the scanned library (on DB and filesystem level)
  5. Switch to library "Scanned"
  6. Sync with Kodi



It's not so much about being bother about doing Scan -> All -> All Items
It is a bit of chore of course needing to go through 2 drop down menu..

If u find that that u do that each time or often, then a simple Scrape Button (like Update Library button), one click to do that would make using Ember so much more nicer.

The main reason is "Ease of use".

That is also the reason why we use Ember in the first place is to stop needing to manually do things like scraping movies.

So anytime that we do something that breaks that "Ease of Use", we ask "could this have been done better or more simpler"
instead of the user need to manually do something repetitively.


If u implement two buttons, and make that Scrape Button > Scrape new Movies > All missing items. (default)
Then let us customize that button to another function that we use often.
So anyone who is happy with default can leave as is.

Also I don't believe as many ppl leave their entire movie library (which could be hundred to thousands of movies) to be listed in Ember

That is just too ridiculous, it would slow down Ember, and make it hard to manage the thousands of movies, and could be accidentally get Scrape All again.

There might be a few that do this..

But I believe most ppl just scrape the movies then move it out to another folder, drive, server, or NAS..

Your library management wish might be nice idea..
but it is probably too complex, time consuming for the programmer to change at this stage.

We are still waiting for next update of Youtube trailers, and I made suggestion/feature request last year.
