Metadata update

    Currently CloudPlayer will only scan/index the metadata for a file once. There isn't an easy way to "rescan" the metadata but this is something that we're looking to add in a future update.

    You can ban/unban a folder to rescan the metadata but this will also remove those items from playlists.

    We're sorry for the inconvenience.

    Rescanning the metadata would be a great feature. I'm often editing metadata (corrections, typos, etc.) and the only way is to remove the folder and add it back.

    Why isn't there "an easy way"? The Google Drive API can tell you what files have changed since the last scan. Then it should be straight forward to update the metadata for those files in the CloudPlayer database.
