This is a Kodi 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. 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 your media experience is not interrupted. Updating a specific Video Path, and Cleaning the Music/Video libraries is also supported.
