So it appears that the upgrade to 4.0 effected a total wipe and rebuild of chapter images. Wow. I'm about 5 hours into a library scan with no end in sight. Not complaining, per se, but I was curious from the technical side what changes necessitated this. I know you rebuilt transcoding from the ground up. What changed in chapter images, etc.?

It was the re-evaluation of Folder views. 


Ideally you can just turn Chapter extractions off until initial scan is complete then enable able again later, that is what I do.  Or at a minimum turn of during library scans.

So many things changed internally, including the id's of the database records. We probably could have done a better job of avoiding this though. Thanks.
