Rebuilding audio library
#1
Hi!

Is there a way to force the audio library to be re-built? I sometimes modify some wrong tags, add images or so, but they are not taken into account when I just launch an update... I have to remove the album, clean-up, add the album back, and update :o/

Thanks,
Frédéric

The update library facility loops through all your music files, and scans tags from any new ones and re-scans the tags from any files that have changed in name, size or timestamp since the previous scan. When you have modified wrong tags I would expect library update to pick that up, so there should be no need to do the remove album, clean-up, add back sequence you say you do.

You will need to give me examples of metadata changes to music files being ignored please.

Art is a little different, once Kodi has but an image in cache it can be hard to pursuade it to change without visiting each album or artist individually.  Improvements comming with Leia.

Also Leia has a facility to rescan tags even when the music files have not changed.

I'll check to see what tags failed...

For the art, let's wait for Leia :o)

You can try the Leia alpha builds if you are up for a challenge. Smile
