Index subfolders – Do we want subfolders below the root folder to be included in the watch.

Autoindex videos from a folder

Tips

For autoindexing to work the drive that is monitored needs to be a local drive. The auto index feature relies on Windows to detect when a folder is changed, this will not work for remote disks like network mounted drives.

Recommendations

An alternative adding videos to the program to a folder with videos is to just add the complete folder again. The program can ignore videos that have already been added to the program.
