Xbmc video library not updating
RELATED: Some people rarely, if ever, restart Kodi, putting the computer to sleep instead of shutting it down.If that’s you, re-scanning the library probably isn’t good enough.If you delete videos frequently, you might be annoyed to see them still referenced in your Library.The Cleaning section of the settings lets you take care of that.From here you can set the polling interval in seconds; that is, you can set how often Kodi will check folders for new files.You can also set a delay between finding a new file and adding it to the library.From the main settings, you can tell the add-on to remove deleted files from the library, or even to scan when you start up Kodi.
Note that there is a different option for Videos and Music.
Our recommendation: choose the least complicated option that does what you want.
Kodi can, without any add-ons, re-scan your library every time it starts up.
There will be many updates, so consider toggling this.
Under the Video and Music sections you can set how frequently updates occur.
Library Auto-Update is a Kodi add-on that lets you set a schedule for re-scanning your library.
