Update: Fixed scanning speed of an input folder

By | December 23, 2016

This is the last update in this calendar year. It fixes the scanning speed of an input folder. Previous update introduced this issue.

I made some changes to the used method. Originally, we had to know location of a header id number for WTV file. These numbers differed from one operating system to another. Now, we take sample file, map it ourselves by using header name and pass it to the method that extracts metadata. This way we do not need to worry about what Windows version we are using. I tested application on Windows 7 and Windows 10. It should work on Windows 8 too.

Although scanning speed is really fast, you need to consider how many recordings you have in your Recorded TV folder. I have about 3.5 TB of data that takes about 2 minutes to scan over LAN.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues.
