Plex library not updating
It's important that your media files and library folders are named and organized in a way Plex can recognize. Plex also has extensive support for automatically fetching and using subtitles.Once a library has been created, it is processed by your Plex Media Server so all the media items are matched and metadata is gathered.In many cases, Scans may be initiated for you automatically such as when you save changes to a library’s settings.Settings to control automatic or periodic library scans can be found under feature.Scanning and Refreshing a library do different things.Scanning and refreshing a library both have to do with getting content into the library. Scanning a library makes the Plex Media Server check its folders and sub-folders for new or removed media.Thanks for the suggestion, will definitely use that. What I do is just use Couch Potato to automatically re-name and move the files and so it also updates plex.
You can manually Scan or Refresh a library as a whole or Refresh particular items within a library.If it finds new or unmatched media, it then pulls it into the library and fetches metadata for it.You can think of scanning as “check for new or changed content and get metadata for it if needed”.Periodic updates for your library allow you to have scans run at a set frequency.This is controlled by two settings: Note: The periodic frequency is based on when the Plex Media Server starts up.
The options available and particular actions taken can vary depending on from where the action is initiated.
