Best way to up update movie files?
#1
I've been replacing h264 versions of my movies with h265 versions, by simply swapping the old with the new movie files, which are named differently. After updating the library, the same movie is marked as New, which is expected, and all the other details are still there from the old listing, which is also kind of expected. But one issue is that the metadata is also from the original file, so things like codec and resolution are wrong.

So now I have to remember to re-scrape the metadata for updated files, but I end up rescraping both new and updated files before I forget which are actually new and which are just updated. So for future versions, it would make sense to automatically update the metadata for any new media files.

You can filter on new and select everything in the list, rescrape metadata only from context menu
If its a single movie, hit the update button in lower right corner
