Well for example, when i drop audio files onto my shared NAS folder i have to get into Volumio’s settings - sources and manually press the update button to let the files show up in the Album list.
It would be nice if a background task monitors the source location(s) and notice the new files and update the content view.
This also includes deleting, moving and (IDv3) editing files.
When i rip a CD it goes into the sources folder on my NAS where i then edit them with MP3tag ( which also works with FLAC ) to edit the IDv3 information and add the cover to all files.
After editing i need to goto the Settings - sources menu to press Update to make it visible in my Album listing.
Some of my previous rips had the artist IDv3 information noted a different artist ( guest appearance as example ) and that triggered the song to be outside the album listing. Example:
Album: best of
Artist: Linkin Park
Songs are tagged with Artist: Linkin Park except one that was Artist: Linkin Park, Jay z.
This song would should up on its own in the Album listing.
Also i noticed that dropping a Folder.jpg file into a album folder shows up much later even if i use the Update or even ReScan button.
This looks to me like a cache issue, as my music library isn’t very big, i guess i run into this issue as the my cache is big enough to hold the full page, so a disable cache for the website toggle would be handy as well.
As i noticed just now ( a day after editing the files ) that one song is still outside the album listing, even quad tipple checked the IDv3 information.
Maybe as a quick fix add a Purge button to the Update and Rescan buttons.
PS: I only have about 30 albums listed.
I hope this makes it a bit more clear.
