Windows Media Player libraries - how to auto-refresh?


Standard Member
I'm streaming media using WMP12 on Windows Home Premium 64-bit to an XBox. However, when I add files to the monitoring folders, I cannot see the added files on the XBox. It seems that the libraries are not automatically updating. How do I configure this?

yeah WMP12 can be a bit fiddly with updated files in a monitored folder. I usually close down WMP12 and add the files to the folder, then open it up and it should auto update.
If not, i sometimes delete the monitored folder in WMP12 and add it back in again and it should then have the files added correctly
