Enhance music scan to include updated tags not just based on modified date

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythmusic Version: head
Severity: low Keywords: mythmusic
Cc: Ticket locked: no


In the course of updating my collection of mp3s, I modified the tags (which in my case did not change the modified time stamp). I would like to request to add an option to include a check for updated tags during a rescan of the music directories. My thought is to add an option in setup to allow the user to choose since it definitely would take more time to complete than a regular scan and not everyone would want to enable this feature.Currently, I can only get it to reread the tags by dumping the table and recreating it.

Feature requests don't belong in trac!! The metadata is only updated if the modification timestamp of the file is later than that stored in the DB for the file so you could use touch -m on the files to update the modification timestamps which will force MythMusic to rescan the file.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
