Boxee scans for media only when it is idle and not doing other tasks. Adding media shares does not mean they will show up in "Shows", "Movies", "Files"(Local Movies, Shows, Music, Photos) immediately.  Boxee scans for the media shares, tries to identify the media and checks sources on the web to get data like cover art, fan art, thumbnails and other metadata to allow Boxee to present a rich interface to the user.

You can now specify the frequency of scanning(Private, Once, Daily) for media of folders on your computer. It provides for better performance and greater control over the process.

  • You can easily see how many files Boxee is scanning, has identified, and/or doesn’t recognize within your media collection.  Check the status from any menu sidebar (TV shows, Movies, Music) or from the Media settings menu (Settings > File Sources).
