If you are playing an audio or video file when the timer starts it can skip the library update process until it is completed so that you're media experience is not interrupted.
This is an XBMC Service that will update your music and video libraries on a timer.
You can select a different interval to scan your media databases (Audio, Video, Both) or you can set a cron-style timer for greater control.
It will be launched every X hours within the interval unless on of the conditions specified by you as been met (don't run during media playback, etc) in which case it will be run at the next earliest convenience.
Advanced Timer - specify a cron expression to use as an interval for the update process.
By default the expression will run at the top of every hour.
More advanced expressions can be configured such as: .--------------- minute (0 - 59) | .------------ hour (0 - 23) | | .--------- day of month (1 - 31) | | | .------ month (1 - 12) or Jan, Feb ...Dec | | | | .---- day of week (0 - 6) or Sun(0 or 7), Mon(1) ...XBMC is a robust media center tool but there is no tool that’s perfect right out of the box for every user.The XBMC Library Updater will update your music and/or video libraries according to times specified by you.Thanks to pkscuot for several small tweaks to this addon!Add-ons allow XBMC fans to build onto the native functionality of XBMC.
