Music needs rescanning so we can generate the new album/song art (plus also ensure we get the compilations correct, though I suspect this needs more work).
This prompts the user and starts a scan.
Discussion is needed as to whether or not we reset the scan trigger (a setting set on db update) when the user starts a scan using this - if the cancel the scan then it's not possible to rescan without removing the source, clearing things out and readding it.
add flags for the music scanner instead of reading guisettings intern…
add prompt to rescan music library on entry to music
Alternatives would be:
I just updated xbmc on my HTPC with one build from today's master but after the rescan of my music database the info manager no longer shows any music thumbs in the now playing window.
Now playing window isn't the infomanager - it's a known issue though (the MusicInfoLoader runs threaded in that case, the thumb loader doesn't run, and the thumb assigning stuff won't work due to not working on a real folder).
I'm willing to look into this but do you have any ideas how to fix this?
First step is running the thumbloader. Problem with that is that you don't want 2 threads running.
Can't we modify the thumbloader to allow non threaded thumb retrieval and have the musicinfoloader use that to take care of the thumb-loading. Basically a non-threaded version of the thumbloader?
